Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE
Inhalation: Major route of exposure. Vapor is heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing the available oxygen for breathing. Breathing high concentrations of vapor could cause light-headedness, giddiness, shortness of breath, and/or confusion, and may lead to narcosis, cardiac irregularities, unconsciousness or even death.
Eyes: Liquid contact will irritate eyes and may cause conjunctivitis.
Skin: Not a corrosive or irritant; however, repeated or prolonged exposure can cause defatting of skin.
Ingestion: Single-dose toxicity is low to moderate. If vomiting does occur, the liquid can be aspirated into lungs, which can cause chemical pneumonia and systemic effects. Human psychotropic, gastrointestinal, and central nervous system effects are possible.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
(prolonged) Exposure
Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage (sometimes called painters' syndrome). Intentional misuse by concentrating and inhaling this product may be harmful or fatal.

Repeated or prolonged exposure can cause defatting of skin.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
No information provided.
First Aid: From MSDS
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If breathing has stopped administer artificial respiration. Seek medical attention.
Eyes: Flush eyes with water for 15 minutes. Lift eyelids occasionally until no evidence of chemical is present. Call physician.
Skin: Wash promptly with soap and water for 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing. Get medical attention immediately. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: If conscious, give 2 to 4 glasses of water and induce vomiting, or remove chemical by gastric lavage. Seek medical attention immediately. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
NOTE: Do not treat victim with adrenalin. Overexposure, especially if accompanied by anoxia, may cause cardiac irritability and cause respiratory distress. Maintain oxygenation until recovery.
