Reactivity Alerts
none
Air & Water Reactions
Water soluble.
Fire Hazard
Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Contain toxic and irritating gases.

Behavior in Fire: Gives off toxic gases (NO x ). (USCG, 1999)
Health Hazard
May be harmful if inhaled. Irritating to eyes and skin. May be harmful if swallowed. (USCG, 1999)
Reactivity Profile
POLYETHYLENE POLYAMINE neutralizes acids to form salts plus water in exothermic reactions. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Reacts with strong reducing agents such as hydrides to generate flammable gaseous hydrogen. Incompatible with aluminum, zinc and other nonferrous metals (USCG, 1999). Products of combustion contain toxic and irritating gases.
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)

First Aid
INHALATION: Move to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.

EYES OR SKIN: Flush with running water for at least 15 min.; hold eyelids open if necessary. Wash skin with soap and water. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at the site. Keep victim quiet and maintain normal body temperature.

INGESTION: If swallowed and victim is conscious have victim drink water and induce vomiting. If swallowed and victim is unconscious or having convulsions, do nothing except keep victim warm. (USCG, 1999)
