Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Do not breathe material. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues(vapor and liquid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed. All five-gallon pails and larger metal containers should be grounded and/or bonded when material is transferred.Store in cool place, out of hot sun and below 90 degrees F. All containers are subject to damage in storage and transit. Damaged containers may start leaking immediately or at a later time. Do not store flammable materials in areas with widely fluctuating temperatures and do not store where vapors may come in contact with flames, sparks, or heat. Flammable materials should not be stored in below ground areas that cannot be adequately ventilated at floor level. Do not use cutting or welding torches near full or empty containers. Closed containers may explode if exposed to extreme heat.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationPotential Health EffectsInhalation: Inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, headache, nausea, unconsciousness and asphyxiation.Skin contact: Short contact may cause slight reddening or no irritation. Prolonged or frequently repeated contact can cause irritation defatting, dermatitis and may result in absorption of harmful amounts. Eye contact: Eye contact can cause severe irritation, redness, tearing, blurred vision and may cause transient injury to cornea.Skin absorption: Some ingredients in this product may be absorbed through intact skin and produce toxic effects similar to swallowing.Ingestion: Aspiration of material into the lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal. Ingestion can cause blindness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gastrointestinal irritation and death.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the product may be harmful or fatal. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent brain, nervous system, liver and kidney damage.
Carcinogenicity: Methylene chloride is listed as a potential carcinogen by IARC. Methylene chloride has been shown to increase the rate of spontaneously occurring malignant tumors in one strain of laboratory mouse and benign tumors in laboratory rats. Other animal studies and human epidemiology studies have not shown a tumorigenic response which could be related to methylene chloride. Excessive exposure may cause carboxyhemoglobinemia and impair blood's ability to transport oxygen. It is believed that savogran products are safe for the average healthy individual to use when used as recommended.
First Aid: Eye contact: Flood with plenty of water with eye lids held open for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention promptly.Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.Ingestion: Immediately give 1 or 2 glasses of water and call physician, hospital emergency room or poison control center for way to induce vomiting. Get medical attention promptly. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Aspiration of material into lungs can cause chemical pneumotitis which can be fatal.Inhalation: If illness occurs, remove patient to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If breathing has stopped, start artificial respiration. Call physician immediately.Note to Physicians: This material is an aspiration hazard. Potential danger from aspiration must be weighed against possible oral toxicity when deciding whether to induce vomiting.
