CHEMICAL NAME CAS#
Tris(ethylmethylamido)aluminum, dimer 480438-29-7
SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE EXPOSURE: Immediately flush the eyes with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. A victim may need assistance in keeping their eye lids open. Get immediate medical attention.
SKIN EXPOSURE: Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay.
INHALATION: Remove victim to fresh air. Closely monitor the victim for signs of respiratory problems, such as difficulty in
breathing, coughing, wheezing, or pain. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Seek medical attention.
INGESTION: Do NOT induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Seek immediate medical attention.
SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable Carbon dioxide, or dry powder.
Unsuitable DO NOT USE WATER!
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION AND DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and aluminum oxide.
ADVICE FOR FIRE FIGHTERS
Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary. Wear protective clothing to prevent contract with eyes and skin. Specific hazards- Flammable liquid. Water reactive material. Emits toxic fumes under fire conditions.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Wear suitable protective clothing, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves, eye and face protection. Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Do not allow material to enter drains or streams.
METHODS AND MATERIALS
Approach suspected leak areas with caution. Absorb with inert absorbent materials such as: Dry sand, vermiculite, activated charcoal. Use appropriate chemical waste container. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pick up is complete.
SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from sources of ignition. Prevent build up of electrostatic charge. Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure.
CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Protect from humidity and water. Keep container tightly sealed.

SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
COMPONENTS WITH WORKPLACE CONTROL PARAMETERS
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.
APPROPRIATE ENGINEERING CONTROLS
Maintain process conditions to ensure temperature is below flashpoint. Use non-sparking tools. Be sure there is adequate ventilation. Be sure to provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination or type ABEK respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator.
EYE/FACE PROTECTION: Chemical safety goggles.
SKIN PROTECTION: Compatible chemical-resistant gloves.
