Warnings: Caution! CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Vapors will accumulate readily and may ignite explosively. Keep area ventilated during use and until all vapors are gone. DO NOT SMOKE. Extinguish all flames, pilot lights and heaters. Turn off stoves, electric tools and appliances and any other sources of ignition. CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat from radiators, stoves, hot water and other heat sources that may cause bursting. Do not puncture, incinerate, burn or store above 120 deg F. Do not discard empty can in home garbage compactor. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid continuous breathing of vapor and spray mist. To avoid breathing vapor or spray mist, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headaches or dizziness, increase fresh air or wear respiratory protection (NIOSH/MSHA TC 23 or equivalent) or leave the area. HARMFUL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. First Aid: In case of contact with eyes: flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes, get medical attention. For skin contact: wash thoroughly with soap and water. In case of respiratory difficulty, provide fresh air and call a physician. NOTICE Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling contents may be harmful or fatal. Keep out of reach of children.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Effects of Overexposure: Irritation of eyes, skin and upper respiratory system. In a confined area vapors in high concentration may cause headache, nausea or dizziness. Redness and itching or burning sensation may indicate eye or excessive skin exposure.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: None generally recognized.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Ethylene glycol is considered an animal teratogen. It has been shown to cause birth defects in rats and mice at high doses when given in drinking water or by gavage. There is no evidence to indicate it causes birth defects in humans. Prolonged overexposure to solvent ingredients may cause adverse effects to the liver and urinary systems.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
Crystalline silica (Quartz, cristobalite) is listed by IARC. Long term exposure to high levels of silica dust, which can occur only when sanding or abrading the dry film, may cause lung damage and possibly cancer. Rats exposed to titanium dioxide dust at 250 mg/m3 developed lung cancer; however, such exposure levels are not attainable in the workplace.

This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
