Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: DANGER: POISON. MAY BE FATAL OR CAUSE BLINDNESS IF SWALLOWED. VAPOR HARMFUL. FLAMMABLE. CONTAINS METHYL ALCOHOL. CANNOT BE MADE NON-POISONOUS. Do not drink or inhale. Keep away from heat, sparks, flame and other ignition sources. Store below 120F. Use only in a well-ventilated area. Do not store in open or unlabeled containers. Avoid eye contact. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Eye Contact: Avoid eye contact. May be irritating to the eyes upon direct contact.
Skin Contact: Avoid skin contact. Single, short exposures, as expected with consumer use of this product, are expected to be practically non-irritating to the skin. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in dryness, chapping, and reddening. May be absorbed through skin.
Inhalation: Avoid inhalation of mists or vapors. 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. 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. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling this product can be harmful or fatal.
Ingestion: Do not ingest. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Can cause reversible or permanent blindness. Visual symptoms include eye pain, blurred vision and constriction of visual fields. Can cause central nervous system (CNS) depression if ingested. 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. Initial symptoms are often followed by a period with few symptoms. After a latent period, symptoms usually recur with greater severity and visual disturbances, shortness of breath, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Ingestion of large quantities can lead to a metabolic acidosis, which can be fatal if untreated. Ingestion may result in lung aspiration. 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.

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
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in dryness, chapping, and reddening. May be absorbed through skin. Chronic inhalation overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
Methanol is not considered to be carcinogenic by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National Toxicology Program (NTP) or OSHA.
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: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap and water. If redness or irritation occurs and persists, seek medical attention.
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: If large quantity is ingested and if person is conscious, give large quantities of water immediately. Seek immediate medical attention. If vomiting occurs lower head below knees to avoid aspiration.

Notes to Physician: Immediate medical treatment is imperative, especially if a large dose has been ingested. Administer alkali to correct acidosis. Hemodialysis is effective in the management of poisoning. Intravenous administration of ethanol has been effective.
