Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings:
Contains Petroleum Middle Distillates (Fuel Oil). Combustible. Harmful or fatal if swallowed or inhaled. Inhalation of high vapor or mist concentrations can cause respiratory tract and; eye irritation as well as central nervous system effects (drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, headaches and loss of consciousness). ATTENTION: Prolonged and repeated skin contact can cause drying of skin. Keep away from heat and flames. Avoid breathing of mists and vapors. Use only in well ventilated areas. Avoid skin contact. Wash thoroughly after handling. INSTRUCTIONS IN CASE OF FIRE, SPILL OR LEAK: For fires use water spray, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Water spray may be ineffective, but can be used to cool containers.

Acute Health Effects:
From MSDS Eye Contact: Avoid eye contact. This product is minimally irritating to the eyes upon direct contact. Based on testing of similar products and/or components. This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present a hazard to the eyes at ambient conditions. Exposure to high concentrations of vapors may be irritating to the eyes. Skin Contact: Avoid skin contact. This product is minimally irritating to the skin upon direct contact. Based on testing of similar products and/or components. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. Inhalation: Avoid prolonged inhalation of mist or vapors. This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation hazard at ambient conditions. Caution should be taken to prevent aerosolization or misting of this product. Acute and chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Severe intoxication may lead to drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. 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. Ingestion may cause 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: Drying and chapping 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. Chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Severe intoxication may lead to drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea.

Carcinogenicity:
From MSDS The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has concluded that light and intermediate middle distillates are Group 3 substances, ***not classifiable as to their carcinogenicity to humans,*** based on inadequate human and inadequate animal evidence.

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. Use a hand or skin lotion to prevent dryness. Inhalation: This material has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation exposure at ambient conditions. 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: Do not induce vomiting due to aspiration hazard. If vomiting occurs lower head below knees to avoid aspiration. Seek immediate medical attention.
