Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings:
DANGER: EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE. CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. HARMFUL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED. VAPOR HARMFUL. EYE AND SKIN IRRITANT. Contains heptane, CAS No. 142-82-5; perchloroethylene, CAS No. 127-18-4, propane, CAS No 74-98-6, butane, CAS No.106-97-8 and talc, CAS No. 14807-96-6. Inhaling or ingesting can cause headache and nausea. Prolonged and repeated skin contact may cause drying of skin. Contains perchloroethylene, which has been shown to cause cancer in certain laboratory animals. Risk to your health depends on level and duration of exposure. Do not puncture, incinerate or store above 120 F. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight. Keep away from heat and flames. Avoid eye contact. Avoid breathing of mists and vapors. Use only in well ventilated areas. Avoid prolonged skin contact. Wash thoroughly after handling. WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and/or inhaling can be harmful or fatal. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Acute Health Effects:
From MSDS 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. Such concentrations can only be built up in unventilated, enclosed and confined spaces. Ingestion: 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 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. Signs and symptoms from chronic inhalation 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. Such concentrations can only be built up in unventilated, enclosed and confined spaces.

Carcinogenicity:
From MSDS There is limited evidence in humans and sufficient evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity of perchloroethylene.

First Aid:
From MSDS Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing for 15 minutes or until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Skin Contact: Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap and water. Use a hand or skin lotion to prevent dryness. If redness or irritation occurs, seek medical attention. Inhalation: If exposure levels exceed the limits listed in Sections 3 or 8, remove victim from exposure. If victim exhibits signs of vapor intoxication remove to fresh air. 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: Ingestion is unlikely for aerosol products. Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If person is conscious, induce vomiting. If person is conscious, give large quantities of water immediately. If vomiting occurs lower head below knees to avoid aspiration. Seek medical attention.
