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 absorbed through the skin and may cause nausea,

headache and general discomfort.

 

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Possible Longer Term Effects)

This substance may cause respiratory sensitization and chronic

lung toxicity to exposed workers.

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
