Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Danger: Extremely flammable (propane). Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame, heat sources, any other source of ignition. Disconnect electrical tools and appliances before spraying. Keep can away from electrical source or battery terminal. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Contains xylene. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. call physician immediately. Use in a well ventilated area. Do not breathe vapor or spray mist. Deliberate or direct inhalation may be harmful or fatal. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage, along with kidney and liver damage. In a confined area vapors in high concentration are anesthetic. Overexposure may cause lightheadedness, staggering gait, giddiness, and possible nausea. Contents under pressure. Do not: store above 120 deg F, exposure to heat may cause bursting, puncture, incinerate (burn) can, discard in trash compactor. MSDS: EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES SKIN CONTACT: Wash skin with soap and water. EYE CONTACT: Remove contact lenses and flush eye for 15 minutes, if irritation persists contact physician. INHALATION: Remove to fresh air and provide oxygen if breathing is difficult. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. INGESTION: Do NOT induce vomiting. Call Physician immediately.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Eye Contact: Avoid eye contact. This product has not been tested for acute eye hazards. May be irritating to the eyes upon direct contact. Exposure to mists and vapors may be irritating to the eyes. These effects are transient, and complete recovery follows. Skin Contact: Avoid skin contact. This product may cause slight skin irritation upon direct contact. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in dryness, chapping, and reddening. Inhalation: This product is not expected to pose an inhalation hazard under conditions of foreseeable use. Caution should be taken to minimize exposure to aerosols/mists of this product. Acute and chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of high concentrations of this product can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis. Exposure to extremely high concentrations may have anesthetic effects but are completely reversible upon cessation of exposure. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling this product can be harmful or fatal. 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:No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: 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.
