Hazardous characteristics: flammable, its vapor and air can form an explosive mixture, the risk of burning explosion when exposed to heat and open flame. Contact with oxidants chemical reactions or cause combustion. High-speed impact, flow, and stirring can cause combustion explosions due to static spark discharge. Its vapour is heavier than air, and it can spread to relatively far places in the lower places. When it encounters fire, it will ignite.
