Ethanol is an important organic solvent and is widely used in medicine, paints, hygiene products, cosmetics, oils and other aspects, accounting for about 50% of the total ethanol consumption. Ethanol is an important basic chemical raw material used in the manufacture of acetaldehyde, ethylenediene, ethylamine, ethyl acetate, acetic acid, ethyl chloride, etc., and is derived from medicine, dyes, coatings, fragrances, synthetic rubber, detergents, Many intermediates of pesticides and other products have more than 300 products. The use of ethanol as an intermediate for chemical products is gradually declining. Many products such as acetaldehyde, acetic acid, and ethyl alcohol no longer use ethanol as a raw material and use other raw materials. instead. 75% ethanol aqueous solution has strong sterilization ability and is a commonly used disinfectant. Specially refined ethanol can also be used to make beverages. Similar to methanol, ethanol can be used for energy. Some countries have begun to use ethanol alone as a vehicle fuel or blended with gasoline (more than 10%) to save gasoline.
Hazardous characteristics: It is flammable, its vapor and air can form explosive mixture, and it will cause combustion explosion in case of open flame and high heat energy. Contact with oxidant to cause chemical reaction or cause combustion. In a fire scene, heated containers are in danger of explosion. Its vapor is heavier than air, and can spread to a relatively far place at a lower place, and it will ignite and re-ignite in case of fire.
Fire extinguishing method: Move the container from the fire site to an open place as much as possible. Spray water to keep the fire field container cool until the end of fire extinguishing.
Fire extinguishing agent: alcohol-resistant foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide, sand.
