Protection of Firefighters: Vapors may be irritating to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Firefighters should
wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full fire-fighting turnout gear.
Section 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions: Use personal protection recommended in Section 8. Product is slippery when
spilled. Isolate the hazard area. Deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.
Environmental Precautions: Keep out of drains, sewers, ditches and waterways.
Methods for Containment: Dike spill area and cap leaking containers as necessary to prevent further
spreading of spilled material. Absorb spilled liquid with suitable material such as dirt or sand.
Methods for Clean Up: Eliminate all ignition sources. Use equipment rated for use around combustible materials. Oil soaked rags may spontaneously combust; place in appropriate disposal container.
Other Information: There are no special reporting requirements for spills of this material.
Section 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Open container slowly to release pressure caused by temperature variations. Do not allow this material to come in contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged contact with skin. Use in well ventilated areas. Do not breathe vapors. Drum lining may occasionally chip and fall to the bottom of container; product should be filtered or strained before blending or repackaging. As with any chemical, employees should thoroughly wash hands with soap and water after handling this material.
Product may be packaged in phenolic-lined steel containers or fluorinated plastic containers. Store in a well ventilated area with proper sprinkler/fire deterrent system. Storage temperature should not exceed the flash point for extended periods of time. Keep container closed when not in use. Air should be excluded from partially filled containers by displacing with nitrogen or carbon dioxide. Do not cut, drill, grind or weld on or near this container; residual vapors may ignite.
Section 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Orange Terpenes 8h TWA=30 ppm (AIHA Standard)
TWA –Time Weighted Average
Engineering Controls: Provide ventilation. Keep away from sparks and flames.

Section 10: STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Conditions to Avoid: Keep away from heat, sparks and flames.
Incompatible Materials: Strong oxidizing agents and strong acids, including acidic clays, peroxides,
halogens, vinyl chloride, and iodine pentafluoride.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Oxides of orange terpenes, which can result from improper
storage and handling, are known to cause skin sensitization.
Possibility of Hazardous Reactions: To prevent oxidation, avoid long-term exposure to air. If storing
partially filled container, fill headspace with an inert gas such as nitrogen or carbon dioxide.
Section 11: TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Orange terpenes have been shown to have low oral toxicity (LD50>5 g/kg) and low dermal toxicity (LD50> 5g/kg) when tested on rabbits. Orange terpenes also showed low toxicity by inhalation (RD50>1 g/kg) when tested on mice. The skin irritancy of limonene in guinea pigs and rabbits is considered moderate and low, respectively. Inhalation may cause irritation of the nose, throat, and respiratory tract.
This product is not classified as a carcinogen by OSHA, IARC, ACGIH or NTP. This product has not been shown to produce genetic changes when tested on bacterial or animal cells. This product does not contain known reproductive or developmental toxins. Prolonged or repeated exposure can cause drying or dermatitis of skin. Improper storage and handling may lead to the formation of a possible skin sensitizer.
Section 12: ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Ecotoxicity: There is no information available at this time for this product. However, a spill may produce significant toxicity to aquatic organisms and ecosystems. Some studies have shown that certain bacteria and fungus have the ability to degrade terpenes, decreasing their toxicity to fish. When spilled, this product may act like oil, causing a film, sheen, emulsion or sludge at or beneath the surface of a body of water.
Persistence/Degradability: Product is expected to be readily biodegradable.
Bioaccumulation/Accumulation: No appreciable bioconcentration is expected in the environment.
Mobility in Environment: Orange terpenes volatilize rapidly.
Section 13: DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Disposal: Incinerate or dispose of in accordance with Local, State, and Federal Regulations. Taking regulations into consideration, waste may be incinerated or handled through EPA Spill Control Plan via landfill or dilution. Commercially clean containers prior to disposal. Oil soaked rags should be disposed of properly to prevent spontaneous combustion.

Section 16: OTHER INFORMATION
NFPA 704: National Fire Protection Association
Health – 1 (slight hazard) Fire – 2 (moderate hazard) Reactivity – 0 (minimal hazard)
EINECS Number: 232-433-8
d-Limonene is the major component of orange terpenes, with the balance consisting of other terpene hydrocarbons and oxygenated compounds - octanal, myrcene, alpha-pinene, linalool predominant. d- Limonene is a by-product of citrus, entirely of natural origin, and to the best of our knowledge contains no artificial flavors, sulfites, nitrites, or pesticide residue exceeding tolerances established by the FDA. d-Limonene does NOT contain lead, cadmium, mercury, or hexavalent chromium or come in contact with these chemicals since it is an citrus derived essential oil produced by steam/vacuum distillation. Further, d-Limonene is packaged in food grade containers with inert liners that do NOT contain lead, cadmium, mercury, or hexavalent chromium. d-Limonene does NOT contain and is NOT manufactured with any of the Class I or II ozone-depleting substances listed under the United States Clean Air Act of 1990.
