SECTION 3 - HEALTH HAZARDS

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

 

ROUTES OF EXPOSURE

    Eye Contact

    Skin Contact

    Ingestion

    Inhalation

    Skin Absorption

 

EXPOSURE STANDARDS

    No standards established for the product. Maintain air contaminant

    concentrations in the workplace at the lowest feasible levels.

 

HEALTH HAZARDS

    Moderate eye irritant.

    Moderate skin irritant.

    Respiratory 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. Inhalation of mists

    may cause irritation in the respiratory tract. Inhalation of

    vapors may cause irritation in the respiratory tract. Contact with

    the skin or eyes causes moderate eye and skin irritation, redness

    and discomfort which is transient. Coughing and chest pain may

    result.

     Product is absorbed through the skin and may cause nausea,

    headache and general discomfort.

 

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, eye irritation 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. Seek

    medical advice.

 

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

    If swallowed, call a physician immediately.  Remove stomach

    contents by gastric suction or induce vomiting only as directed by

    medical personnel.  Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious

    person.

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

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

 

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES

    Firefighters should wear butyl rubber boots, gloves, and body suit

    and a self-contained breathing apparatus.

 

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS

    May generate toxic or irritating combustion products.

     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)

    Shut off or remove all ignition sources. Stop the leak, if

    possible. Ventilate the space involved. Reduce vapor spreading

    with a water spray. 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. Place in metal containers for recovery or

    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. When handling, do not eat, drink,

    or smoke.

 

OTHER PRECAUTIONS

    Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily

    accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by

    government regulations (e.g. OSHA). Do not use sodium nitrite or

    other nitrosating agents in formulations containing this product.

    Cancer-causing nitrosamines could be formed.

 

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

SECTION 8 - PERSONAL PROTECTION / EXPOSURE CONTROLS

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

 

EYE PROTECTION

    Splash-proof eye goggles. In emergency situations, use eye goggles

    with a full face shield.

 

HAND PROTECTION

    Impermeable gloves. Polyvinyl chloride gloves.

 

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION

    Not required under normal conditions in a well-ventilated

    workplace. An organic vapor respirator National Institute for

    Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) approved for organic vapors

    is recommended under emergency conditions.

 

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

    Long sleeved clothing.

 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

    No specific controls needed.

 

WORK AND HYGIENIC PRACTICES

    Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
