adequate ventilation. To avoid overexposure, 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 approved) or leave the area. Avoid contact

Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE
INHALATION of vapor or spray mist.
EYE or SKIN contact with the product, vapor or spray mist.
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE
EYES: Irritation.
SKIN: Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause irritation.
INHALATION: Irritation of the upper respiratory system.
May cause nervous system depression. Extreme overexposure may result in
unconsciousness and possibly death.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
Headache, dizziness, nausea, and loss of coordination are indications of
excessive exposure to vapors or spray mists.
Redness and itching or burning sensation may indicate eye or excessive
skin exposure.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
None generally recognized.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Ethylbenzene is classified by IARC as possibly carcinogenic to humans
(2B) based on inadequate evidence in humans and sufficient evidence in
laboratory animals. Lifetime inhalation exposure of rats and mice to high
ethylbenzene concentrations resulted in increases in certain types of
cancer, including kidney tumors in rats and lung and liver tumors in mice.
These effects were not observed in animals exposed to lower concentrations.
There is no evidence that ethylbenzene causes cancer in humans.
Cobalt and cobalt compounds are classified by IARC as possibly
carcinogenic to humans (group 2B) based on experimental animal data,
however, there is inadequate evidence in humans for its carcinogenicity.
Prolonged overexposure to solvent ingredients in Section 2 may cause
adverse effects to the liver, urinary and reproductive systems.
Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents
with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
