Hazards & Precautions
Methanol is flammable and burns with a clear blue flame that is smokeless and difficult to see in daylight. Keep away from sources of ignition including heat, sparks, flames and hot surfaces. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Containers should be stored in well ventilated and cool areas.
Methanol can be toxic if swallowed, inhaled, or contacts the skin, although skin absorption is a slower process than ingestion or inhalation. Avoid breathing vapors or missed. When handling methanol, wear chemical resistant gloves and appropriate PPE. Depending on the activity, respiratory protection may be required. If swallowed immediately seek medical attention.
DANGER! HARMFUL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED.
Before use, always read all information and warnings on container.
