SECTION 3 - HEALTH HAZARDS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

ROUTES OF EXPOSURE

    Eye Contact

    Skin Contact

    Ingestion

    Inhalation

    Skin Absorption

 

EXPOSURE STANDARDS

    See Section 2 for exposure standards on ingredients. Maintain air

    contaminant concentrations in the workplace at the lowest feasible

    levels.

 

HEALTH HAZARDS

    Harmful if in contact with skin.

    Harmful if swallowed.

    Corrosive to eyes.

    Corrosive to respiratory system.

    Corrosive to skin.

    Severe eye irritant.

    Severe respiratory tract irritant.

    Severe skin irritant.

    May cause skin sensitization.

 

TARGET ORGANS

    Eye

    Skin

    Respiratory system

 

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Acute effects)

    Product vapor in low concentrations can cause lacrimation,

    conjunctivitis and corneal edema when absorbed into the tissue of

    the eye from the atmosphere.  Corneal edema may give rise to a

    perception of ''blue haze'' or ''fog'' around lights.  The effect

    is transient and has no known residual effect. Burns of the eye

    may cause blindness. Contact of undiluted product with the eyes or

    skin quickly causes severe irritation and pain and may cause

    burns, necrosis and permanent injury.

     Inhalation of vapors may severely damage contacted tissue and

    produce scarring. Inhalation of aerosols and mists may severely

    damage contacted tissue and produce scarring.

     Product is readily absorbed through the skin and may cause

    malaise, discomfort, injury and death unless treated promptly.

 

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Possible Longer Term Effects)

    Repeated and/or prolonged exposure may cause allergic

    reaction/sensitization.

     Repeated and/or prolonged exposures may result in: adverse

    respiratory effects (such as cough, tightness of chest or

    shortness of breath), adverse eye effects (such as conjunctivitis

    or corneal damage), adverse skin effects (such as rash, irritation

    or corrosion).

     Effects from inhalation of vapors may be delayed. Repeated and/or

    prolonged exposure to low concentrations of vapor may cause: sore

    throat which are transient.

 

MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE

    Asthma

    Chronic respiratory disease (e.g. Bronchitis, Emphysema)

    Eye disease

    Skin disorders and Allergies

 

CARCINOGENS UNDER OSHA, ACGIH, NTP, IARC, OTHER

    This product contains no carcinogens in concentrations of 0.1

    percent or greater.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 4 - FIRST AID

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

EYE CONTACT

    Hold eyelids apart and immediately flush eyes with plenty of water

    for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical advice.

 

SKIN CONTACT

    Remove product and immediately flush affected area with water for

    at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.

    Destroy contaminated leather apparel. Cover the affected area with

    a sterile dressing or clean sheeting and transport for medical

    care.  Do not apply greases or ointments.   Control shock, if

    present. Launder contaminated clothing prior to reuse.

 

INHALATION

    Move patient to fresh air. If breathing has stopped or is labored

    give assisted respiration (e.g. mouth-to-mouth).  Supplemental

    oxygen may be indicated. Prevent aspiration of vomit.  Turn

    victim's head to the side. Seek medical advice.

 

INGESTION

    In the event of ingestion, administer 3-4 glasses of milk or

    water.  Do not induce vomiting.  Seek medical advice.

    use: water spray, alcohol foam. In case of small fire use: carbon

    dioxide (CO2), dry chemical, dry sand or limestone.

 

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES

    A face shield should be worn. Firefighters should wear butyl

    rubber boots, gloves, and body suit and a self-contained breathing

    apparatus.

     Retain expended liquids from fire fighting for later disposal.

 

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS

    May generate toxic or irritating combustion products.

     Contact of liquid with skin must be prevented.

     Sudden reaction and fire may result if product is mixed with an

    oxidizing agent.

     May generate carbon monoxide gas.

    May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. May generate ammonia gas.

     Personnel in vicinity and downwind should be evacuated.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

CONTAINMENT TECHNIQUES (Removal of ignition sources, diking etc)

    Stop the leak, if possible. Ventilate the space involved. Reduce

    vapor spreading with a water spray. Shut off or remove all

    ignition sources. Construct a dike to prevent spreading (includes

    molten liquids until they freeze).

 

CLEAN-UP PROCEDURES

    If recovery is not feasible, admix with dry soil, sand or non-

    reactive absorbent and place in an appropriate chemical waste

    container. Transfer to containers by suction, preparatory for

    later disposal. Flush area with water spray. Clean-up personnel

    must be equipped with self contained breathing apparatus and butyl

    rubber protective clothing. For large spills, recover spilled

    material with a vacuum truck.

 

 

 

OTHER EMERGENCY ADVICE

    Open enclosed spaces to outside atmosphere. Wear protective

    clothing, boots, gloves, and eye protection.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

STORAGE

    Keep away from: acids, oxidizers. Keep in cool, dry, ventilated

    storage and in closed containers. Do not store in reactive metal

    containers.

 

HANDLING

    Avoid contact with skin or eyes. Avoid breathing of vapors. Handle

    in well ventilated work space. When handling, do not eat, drink,

    or smoke. Avoid using in any spray application without strict

    conformance to all applicable electrical codes and the OSHA limit

    for maximum allowable airborne concentrations.

 

OTHER PRECAUTIONS

    Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily

    accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by

    government regulations (e.g. OSHA).

INCOMPATIBILITY (Materials to Avoid)

    Mineral acids (i.e. sulfuric, phosphoric, etc.). Organic acids

    (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid etc.). Oxidizing Agents (i.e.

    perchlorates, nitrates etc.). Reactive metals (i.e. sodium,

    calcium, zinc etc.). Sodium or Calcium Hypochlorite. Product
