Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Extremely Flammable. Contents under pressure. Vapor harmful. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Irritant to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Do not spray near sparks, heat or open flame. Vapors will accumulate readily and may ignite explosively. Keep area ventilated during use and until all vapors are gone. Do not smoke. Extinguish all flames, pilot lights and heaters. Turn off any other sources of ignition. Contents under pressure. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat sources that may cause bursting. Do not puncture, incinerate, burn or store above 120 degrees F. Do not discard empty can in home garbage compactor. Contains xylene, acetone and methyl ethyl ketone. This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid continuous breathing of vapor and spray mist. To avoid breathing vapors or spray mist, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headaches or dizziness, increase fresh air or wear respiratory protection. (NIOSH TC23C or equivalent) or leave the area. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wash thoroughly after handling. If swallowed do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention or contact a poison control center immediately. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful or fatal. Keep out of reach of children.

FIRST AID MEASURES
INGESTION: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Gently wipe out inside
mouth to remove any residual material.
EYE CONTACT: In case of eye contact, remove contact lenses and flush eyes immediately with a gentle stream of luke warm water for at least 15 minutes.
SKIN CONTACT: In case of skin contact, flush immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes followed by washing with soap and water.
INHALATION: If affected by inhalation of vapor or spray mist, remove to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration and other support measures as required.
OTHER: If ingestion, any type of overexposure or symptoms of overexposure occur during or following the use of this product, contact a poison control center, emergency room or physician immediately; have Material Safety Data Sheet information available.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
PRIMARY HAZARD WARNING
Extremely flammable. Vapors may cause flash fires. Keep away from heat, sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition. Do not smoke. Extinguish all flames and pilot lights Turn off stoves, heaters, electrical motors, and other sources of ignition during use and until all vapors/odors are gone. Harmful if swallowed. May cause moderate skin irritation. Causes severe eye irritation. May be absorbed through the skin. Vapor and/or spray mist may be harmful if inhaled. Vapor irritates eyes, nose, and throat.

EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE:
INGESTION: Harmful if swallowed.
EYE CONTACT: Causes severe eye irritation.
SKIN CONTACT. May cause moderate skin irritation. May be absorbed through the skin.
INHALATION: Vapor and/or spray mist may be harmful if inhaled. Vapor irritates eyes, nose, and throat. Repeated exposure to high vapor concentrations may cause irritation of the respiratory system and permanent brain and nervous system damage.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE. Eye watering, headaches, nausea, dizziness, and loss of coordination are indications that solvent levels are too high. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal. Redness, itching, burning sensation and visual disturbances may indicate excessive eye contact. Dryness, itching, cracking, burning, redness, and swelling are conditions associated with excessive skin contact.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Not applicable.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
CHRONIC OVEREXPOSURE
Repeated exposure to high vapor concentrations may cause irritation of the respiratory system and permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal.

Avoid long-term and repeated contact This product contains methyl ethyl ketone (MEK). MEK has been shown to cause minor embryotoxic/fetotoxic effects in laboratory animals exposed for prolonged periods at high concentrations via inhalation. The potential for human exposure
to high concentrations is expected to be low due to the irritating effects of
MEK at low concentrations. Ethylbenzene has been reported by NTP to cause cancer in laboratory animals following a chronic (2 year) inhalation exposure. Dose levels of 75, 250 and 750 ppm were used, with evidence of carcinogenicity found in the kidneys of rats and the lung and liver of mice at 750 ppm. The No Observed Effect Level (NOEL) was 75 ppm. The relevance of these findings to humans is uncertain, but appropriate safeguards should be employed to reduce or eliminate inhalation exposure to ethylbenzene.
