Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: May cause eye and skin irritation. Use outdoors only, in well ventilated areas. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhalation of mists. If spray applying, a respirator may offer additional protection.Use only with adequate ventilation. Do not take internally. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with skin and eyes, and breathing of vapors. Wash hands thoroughly after handling, especially before eating or smoking. Keep containers tightly closed and upright when not in use. Ground equipment when transferring to prevent accumulation of static charge. Avoid spontaneous combustion of contaminated rags and other easily ignitable organic accumulations.Store below 100 degrees F (38 degrees C). Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Keep from freezing.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationPrimary route(s) of exposure : Inhalation, skin contact, eye contact, ingestion.Effects of Overexposure :Inhalation: Irritation of respiratory tract. Prolonged inhalation may lead to mucous membrane irritation, fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness and/or lightheadedness, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, difficulty of breathing, blood abnormalities,tremors, liver damage, kidney damage.Skin contact : Irritation of skin. Prolonged or repeated contact can cause dermatitis, defatting. Possible sensitization to skin. Skin contact may result in dermal absorption of component(s) of this product which may cause fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness and/or lightheadedness, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, liver damage, kidney damage.Eye contact : Irritation of eyes. Prolonged or repeated contact can cause conjunctivitis, tearing of eyes, corneal injury.Ingestion : Ingestion may cause fatigue, drowsiness, dizziness and/or lightheadedness, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, apathy, central nervous system depression, respiratory problems, intoxication, liver damage, kidney damage, pulmonary edema, loss of consciousness, acute poisoning, respiratory failure, cardiac failure, brain damage.Medical conditions aggravated by exposure : Eye, skin, respiratory disorders, kidney disorders.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful or fatal. Contains iron oxide, repeated or prolonged exposure to iron oxide dust may cause siderosis, a benign pneumoconiosis. Other effects of overexposure may include toxicity to liver, kidney, central nervous system, blood.
Carcinogenicity: Contains formaldehyde, a potential cancer hazard. Rats exposed to formaldehyde via inhalation developed cancer of the nasal cavity. Evidence in humans is limited (nasal and nasopharyngeal cancer). Formaldehyde is listed as a carcinogen by OSHA, probable human carcinogen (group 2a) by IARC, and a known human carcinogen by NTP. Overexposure can cause eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation, and skin and respiratory sensitization. In a 2-year inhalation bioassay conducted by the national toxicology program (NTP), ethylene glycol butyl ether (egbe) caused an increased incidence of liver tumors in male mice and forestomach tumors in female mice exposed to 250 ppm, the highest concentration tested with mice. In rats, an increased incidence of tumors affecting the adrenal gland was seen in females exposed at 125 ppm only. This finding was not statistically significant. No increased incidence of any tumor type was seen in male rats exposed to the highest test concentration of 125ppm. The relevance of these findings to humans is unclear.
First Aid: Inhalation : Remove to fresh air. Restore and support continued breathing. Get emergency medical attention. Have trained person give oxygen if necessary. Get medical help for any breathing difficulty.Skin contact : Wash thoroughly with soap and water. If any product remains, gently rub petroleum jelly, vegetable or mineral/baby oil onto skin. Repeated applications may be needed. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.Eye contact : Flush immediately with large amounts of water, especially under lids for at least 15 minutes. If irritation or other effects persist, obtain medical treatment.Ingestion : If swallowed, obtain medical treatment immediately.
