Use only in well ventilated areas. Vapors are heavier than air and may accumulate in low-lying areas such as bays. Avoid skin and eye contact. Wash thoroughly after handling. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Call physician immediately. For eye contact, wash thoroughly with water. If inhaled, breathe fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Call physician immediately. Keep out of reach of children.

Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Emergency and Hazards Overview
DANGER: VAPOR HARMFUL. HARMFUL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED. CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE.
Primary Route of Exposure: Inhalation

Health Effect Information
EYE CONTACT: Avoid eye contact. This product can cause corneal burns, twitching and redness. These effects are transient, and complete recovery follows.
SKIN CONTACT: Avoid skin contact. This product may cause skin irritation upon direct contact. Prolonged or repeated 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.
INHALATION: Avoid prolonged inhalation of vapors. Exposure to vapors may be irritating to the throat and lungs. When high concentrations are inhaled, human signs may include a reddening of the face and a feeling of increased body heat, in addition, disturbed vision, dizziness, tremors, salivation, cardiac stress, drowsiness, dullness, numbness, weakness, headache, nausea, and confusion, as well as respiratory difficulties may be apparent. Extremely high concentrations have anesthetic effects and may lead to death. Signs and symptoms from chronic exposure resemble those from acute mishaps but are in part systemically more severe. Symptoms related to the nervous system,
kidneys, liver, have been reported following long-term inhalation exposure to high concentrations.
INGESTION: There are no known adverse effects based on current references. 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. Ingestion will cause severe gastrointestinal distress. 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: This condition 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.

Symptoms related to the nervous system, kidneys, liver, have been reported following long-term inhalation exposure to high concentrations.
