IDENTIFICATION:

CAS: 106-89-8

DOT ID: UN2023

Hazard Class or Division: 6.1 (POISONOUS/TOXIC MATERIALS)

ERG Guide: 131

Formula: C 3H 5ClO

RTECS No: TX4900000

Properties: Highly flammable watery, liquid. Clear, colorless. Irritating, sweet garlic or chloroform-like odor. Sinks and is moderately soluble in water. Vapor is heavier than air; will collect in low areas. Combustion products include toxic hydrogen chloride.

Uses: Solvent for resins, enamels, lacquers, paints, varnishes, gums,, high wet-strength resins, cellulose esters; as co-stabilizer to enhance performance of mixed-metals; raw material for epoxy and phenoxy resins.

HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION

  • IDLH: 75ppm. [Ca]

  • IARC: Group 2A, possible human carcinogen; animal evidence, sufficient.

  • NTP: Anticipated human carcinogen.

  • Odor threshold: 0.308 mg/m 3.

  • OSHA Table Z-1 Air Contaminant

  • NIOSH Criteria Document: NIOSH 76-206

  • Chemical protective clothing is recommended because vapor and liquid can be dermally absorbed and may contribute to systemic toxicity. Vapor is a severe eye and respiratory tract irritant; personnel will find high concentrations (above 40 ppm) unpleasant. Contact with the liquid causes severe eye irritant. If spilled on clothing and allowed to remain, may cause severe irritation, smarting, and reddening of the skin.

Products & Services
Industrial Gases
Industrial gases are pure elements, molecular compounds or mixtures that are gaseous or vaporous at room temperature and pressure.
Phenolic, Melamine, and Formaldehyde Resins
Phenolic, melamine and formaldehyde resins are thermosetting adhesives that offer strong bonds and good resistance to high temperatures.
Thermosets and Thermoset Materials
Thermosets and thermoset materials are crosslinked polymeric resins that are cured or set using heat or heat and pressure. They generally have a higher resistance to heat than thermoplastics.
Cast Coil Transformers
Cast coil transformers have windings that are solidly-cast in resin under a vacuum in a mold. This manufacturing process covers the transformer windings in a strong epoxy resin with a high dielectric strength.
Thermal Compounds and Thermal Interface Materials
Thermal compounds and thermal interface materials form a thermally conductive layer on a substrate, between components or within a finished product.
