The following information (Health Effects, Handling/Disposal, and Ingredients) is taken from the product label and/or the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) prepared by the manufacturer.

Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Contains petroleum naphtha. Combustible liquid and vapor. Vapors harmful or fatal at high concentrations. Harmful if swallowed. Can cause nervous system disorders. Can cause eye irritation. May cause skin and respiratory tract irritation. May cause blood and kidney disorders at high exposure concentrations. Keep away from heat and flames. Avoid breathing of mists and vapors. Use only in well ventilated areas. Avoid eye and skin contact. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS Emergency and Hazards Overview Contains: petroleum naphtha WARNING: Combustible liquid and vapor. Vapors harmful or fatal at high concentrations. Harmful if swallowed. Can cause nervous system disorders. Can cause eye irritation. May cause skin and respiratory tract irritation. ATTENTION: May cause blood and kidney disorders at high exposure concentrations. Primary Route of Exposure: Skin Inhalation Health Effect Information EYE CONTACT: Avoid eye contact. This product may be slightly irritating to the eyes upon direct contact, based on testing of similar products and/or components. Exposure to high concentrations of vapors may be irritating to the eyes. SKIN CONTACT: Avoid skin contact. This product may cause slight skin irritation upon direct contact, based on testing of similar products and/or components. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. May be absorbed through skin. INHALATION: Avoid prolonged inhalation of vapors. This product may be considered a low health hazard unless inhaled in very high concentrations. Acute and chronic exposure to vapors may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Severe intoxication may lead to drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. Exposure to even higher concentrations may lead to loss of consciousness and convulsions followed by death. At extremely high concentrations where oxygen displacement is a factor, asphyxiation may occur. INGESTION: Do not ingest. Ingestion of small quantities is usually nonfatal unless aspiration occurs. Aspiration may lead to chemical pneumonitis which is characterized by pulmonary edema and hemorrhage and may be fatal. Signs of lung involvement include increased respiratory rate, increased heart rate, and a bluish discoloration of the skin. Coughing, choking, and gagging are often noted at the time of aspiration. Gastrointestinal discomfort may develop, followed by vomiting with a further risk of aspiration. Severe oral intoxication will lead to intense burning of the throat and may result in drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. Loss of consciousness and convulsions followed by death may result. Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Drying and chapping may make the skin more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers and disease.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS CHRONIC Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. Pre-existing skin conditions may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake by this route. Chronic exposure to vapors may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Some components of these blends are considered uniquely toxic at high concentrations, such as benzene (bone marrow disorders including leukemia and anemia), and n-hexane (peripheral neuropathy). However, at the low concentrations at which they may be present in the blend, and at the low exposure levels at which they may be encountered as vapors, these components do not present a significant health risk.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS Light hydrocarbons such as Stoddard solvent, VM P naphtha and C10-C11 isoparaffins have produced kidney damage in male rats, but not in female rats or mice. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has concluded that rat kidney damage and tumors induced by light petroleum hydrocarbons are not relevant to humans. Various naphthas tested were not carcinogenic in mouse skin painting studies conducted by the American Petroleum Institute (API). The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has concluded that petroleum solvents are Group 3 substances, not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans.
First Aid: From MSDS Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Skin Contact: No treatment is necessary under ordinary circumstances. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap and water. If redness or irritation occurs and persists, seek medical attention. Use a hand or skin lotion to prevent dryness. Inhalation: If victim exhibits signs of vapor intoxication remove to fresh air. If discomfort persists seek medical attention. If breathing has stopped or is irregular, administer artificial respiration and supply oxygen if it is available. If victim is unconscious, remove to fresh air and seek immediate medical attention. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting due to aspiration hazard. If vomiting occurs lower head below knees to avoid aspiration. Seek immediate medical attention. Notes to Physician: No information available.

Handling/Disposal
Handling: From MSDS Handling: Do not open or use in unventilated, enclosed or confined spaces. All ignition sources in the area should be controlled. Fire extinguishers should be kept readily available. See NFPA 30 and OSHA 1910.106--Flammable and Combustible Liquids. Storage: Do not transfer to unmarked containers. Store in a cool, well ventilated area in closed containers away from heat, sparks, open flame or oxidizing materials. Empty Container Warnings Drums: Empty drums should be completely drained, properly bunged and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner, or properly disposed. Empty containers retain product residue and can be dangerous. DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT WELD, BRAZE SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION. THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. Plastic: Do not reuse this container. Empty container may retain product residues. Personal Hygiene: Consumption of food and beverage should be avoided in work areas where hydrocarbons are present. Always wash hands and face with soap and water before eating, drinking, or smoking. Aquatic Toxicity: May be toxic to aquatic organisms.
