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...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
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.
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 skin irritation upon direct contact. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. This condition may make the skin more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers, and disease. Pre-existing skin conditions may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake by this route. May be absorbed through skin.
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.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
This product contains petroleum naphthas and/or solvents which are a complex blend of light petroleum distillates. Some of the 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). At the low concentrations at which they are present in this blend however, and at the low exposure levels at which they are encountered as vapors, these components do not present a significant risk. Light hydrocarbons such as Stoddard solvent, VM & P naphtha and C10-C11 isoparaffin produced kidney damage in male rats only but not in female rats or mice. The relevance of male rat nephropathy to humans is presently unknown.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
Various naphthas tested were not carcinogenic in mouse skin painting bio-assays. IARC has concluded that petroleum solvents are Group 3 substances, ***not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans.*** This product is not carcinogenic according to OSHA.
