Product Description

    Storage
    • Ample fire water supply should be available.
    • A fixed sprinkler/deluge system is recommended.
    • Open slowly to control possible pressure release.
    • Store MEK in a cool, well-ventilated area.
    • MEK Storage containers should be grounded and bonded.
    • Suitable Materials : Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Polyester, Teflon, Butyl Rubber.

    Handling
    • While handling MEK, avoid contact with skin and eyes.
    • Prevent exposure to ignition sources.
    • Potentially toxic vapors may be evolved from heated material.
    • Use MEK only with adequate ventilation
    • Do not enter storage areas unless adequately ventilated.
    • Use proper bonding and/or ground procedures.
    • Prevent small spills and leakage to avoid slip hazard.

    Incompatible Materials
    Oxidizing materials, caustics, amines, ammonia, strong bases, chloroform, chlorosulfonic acid, oleum, potassium-t-butoxide, heat or flame, hydrogen peroxide, nitric acid. Can attack many plastics, resins and rubber.

    Fire Fighting
    • Wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
    • Extinguish with dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide.
    • Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool, dilute spills to nonflammable mixtures, protect personnel attempting to stop leaks and disperse vapors.

    First Aid
    • Ingestion - Do not induce vomiting. If the victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cups of milk or water. Get medical aid immediately
    • Inhalation - Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give only artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
    • Skin - Rinse the area with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes
    • Eyes - Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids

    Hazard Statement
    • Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air
    • Vapors may travel to the source of ignition and flash back
    • Vapors spread along ground and collect in confined areas
    • Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers
    • Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard
    • Containers may explode when heated

    Precaution
    • Liquid causes eye burn, nose and throat irritation
    • Cause headache, dizziness, nausea,and loss of consciousness
    • Use dilution methods. Workshops must be properly ventilated
    • Storage areas must be properly checked
    • Disposal of solvent includes soaking it in rags covered by containers
    • Use of full body PPE is recommended
    • Control of fire hazards is top priority

    Uses
    • Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) is used in pharmaceutical, FMCG or chemical manufacturing sectors.
    • MEK due to it's high solubility, is used as an industrial solvent in manufacturing of plastics, textiles, printing inks and adhesives.
    • MEK is an essential constituent in preparation of highly demanding API's, intermediates, pigment, dyes, cosmetics and bulk drugs.
    • MEK has proved to be a good sterilizer for surgical instruments in the medical device sector.
    • Food Grade MEK is used as food preservative, denaturant and flavorant used in the food industry.
