Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands before eating.Keep container closed when not in use. Keep from freezing.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS: Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: Use ventilation necessary to keep exposures below recommended exposure limits, if any.Primary Routes of Exposure: Skin Contact, Skin Absorption, Inhalation, Eye Contact.Eye Contact: Causes eye irritation.Skin Contact: Substance may cause slight skin irritation.Inhalation: Low hazard for usual industrial handling or commercial handling by trainedpersonnel.Ingestion: Substance may be harmful if swallowed.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: Contains carbon black. Chronic inflammation, lung fibrosis, and lung tumors have been observed in some rats experimentally exposed for long periods of time to excessive concentrations of carbon black and several insoluble fine dust particles. Tumors have not been observed in other animal species (i.e., mouse and hamster) under similar circumstances and study conditions. Epidemiological studies of North American workers show no evidence of clinically significant adverse health effects due to occupational exposure to carbon black. Carbon black is listed as a Group 2B-Possibly carcinogenic to humans by IARC and is proposed to be listed as A4- not classified as a human carcinogen by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Significant exposure is not anticipated during brush application or drying. Risk of overexposure depends on duration and level of exposure to dust from repeated sanding of surfaces or spray mist and the actual concentration of carbon black in the formula.Contains crystalline silica as silicon dioxide. Excessive inhalation of respirable crystalline silica dust may cause lung disease, silicosis or lung cancer. Significant exposure is not anticipated during brush or trowel application or drying. Risk of overexposure depends on the duration and level of exposure to dust from repeated sanding of surfaces, mechanical abrasion or spray mist and actual concentration of crystalline silica in the formula. Crystalline silica is listed as Group 1 carcinogenic to humans by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and Group 2 reasonably anticipated to be a carcinogen by the National Toxicology Program (NTP).
First Aid: Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes holding eyelids open. Get medical attention.Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get immediate medical attention.Ingestion: Swallowing less than an ounce will not cause significant harm. For larger amounts, do not induce vomiting, but give one or two glasses of water to drink and get medical attention.
