Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDSHAZARDS IDENTIFICATIONPrimary Route(s) of Entry: Skin contact, Eye contact.Potential Health Effects Eye: Can cause severe eye irritation and injure eye tissue. Additional symptoms of eye exposure may include: blurred vision. Skin: May cause mild skin irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact may dry and crack the skin. Passage of this material into the body through the skin is possible, but it is unlikely that this would result in harmful effects during safe handling and use. Swallowing: Swallowing this material may be harmful. This material can get into the lungs during swallowing or vomiting. This results in lung inflammation and other lung injury. Inhalation: Breathing aerosol and/or mist is possible when material is sprayed. Aerosol and mist may present a greater risk of injury because more material may be present in the air than from vapor alone. Breathing this material may be harmful. Symptoms usually occur at air concentrations higher than the recommended exposure limits. Symptoms of Exposure Signs and symptoms of exposure to this material through breathing, swallowing, and/or passage of the material through the skin may include: stomach or intestinal upset (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) irritation (nose, throat, airways), cough, central nervous system depression (dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache, unconsciousness), involuntary eye movement, respiratory depression (slowing of the breathing rate), loss of coordination, confusion, irregular heartbeat, anesthesia, respiratory failure, coma, and death.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: This material is not listed as a carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the National Toxicology Program, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. In a National Toxicology Program (NTP) study, lifetime inhalation exposure to naphthalene resulted in increases in tumors of the nose in rats. In a previous NTP study, lifetime exposure to naphthalene caused lung tumors in female mice. Male mice with the same exposure did not develop tumors. The relevance of this finding to humans is uncertain. Naphthalene is listed as carcinogenic by IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer). This product (or a component) is a petroleum-derived material. Similar materials and certain compounds occurring naturally in petroleum oils have been shown to cause skin cancer in laboratory animals following repeated exposure without washing or removal.
First Aid: Eyes: If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart; seek immediate medical attention. Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Flush exposed area with large amounts of water. If skin is damaged, seek immediate medical attention. If skin is not damaged and symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse. Swallowing: Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth; place individual on the left side with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, or poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting. If possible, do not leave individual unattended. Inhalation: If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and quiet; seek immediate medical attention. Note to Physicians: Inhalation of high concentrations of this material, as could occur in enclosed spaces or during deliberate abuse, may be associated with cardiac arrhythmias. Sympathomimetic drugs may initiate cardiac arrhythmias in persons exposed to this material. This material is an aspiration hazard. Potential danger from aspiration must be weighed against possible oral toxicity when deciding whether to induce vomiting. Preexisting disorders of the following organs ( or organ systems) may be aggravated by exposure to this material: skin, lung (for example, asthma-like conditions), liver, central nervous system, pancreas, male reproductive system, Individuals with pre-existing heart disorders may be more susceptible to arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) if exposed to high concentrations of this material.
