Product description:

Physicochemical properties

Color and smell status: colorless transparent liquid with pleasant aromatic odor

Toxicity: low toxicity

Flammability: flammable

Density: 0.656 g/cm³

Stability: stable

Volatility: Volatile

Corrosion: Corrosion

Boiling point: 26.24 ℃

Melting point: -159.4 ℃

Spontaneous ignition point: 420 ℃

Flash point: -51℃

Solubility: insoluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, soluble in most organic solvents such as hydrocarbons and ether


It can be used as a catalyst solvent in the production of polyethylene, a blowing agent for expandable polystyrene, a blowing agent for polyurethane foam systems, a deasphalting solvent, etc. When used as a solvent, it has the same effect as pentane, hexane, heptane, etc., and its dissolving ability is slightly worse than that of pentane.

Hazard category

3.1 Class low flash point flammable liquid

Fire-fighting measures

Spray water to cool the container, and move the container from the fire scene to an open place if possible. If the container suddenly makes an abnormal sound or appears abnormal, it should be evacuated immediately. Extinguishing agent: foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder, sand, water fire is ineffective

Emergency treatment

Eye contact: Lift the eyelid, rinse with running water or normal saline, and seek medical attention

Inhalation: quickly leave the scene to a place with fresh air. Keep the airway unobstructed. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Breathing and heartbeat stop, immediately perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Seek medical attention

Ingestion: Drink enough warm water, induce vomiting, seek medical attention

Packaging, storage, transportation

Packed in closed steel drums, screw-top glass bottles, plastic bottles or metal drums, 125kg/drum. Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The storage temperature should not exceed 29℃. It is best to transport sooner or later in summer. Avoid exposure to the sun, rain, and high temperature during transportation. Transport as required by dangerous goods
