Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Caution: Light Aromatic Solvent Naphtha. Do not use or store near flame, spark or hot surface. Use only in well ventilated area. Keep container closed. Clean up spills immediately. Liquid evaporates and forms vapors (fumes) which can catch fire and burn with explosive violence. Invisible vapors spread easily and can be set on fire by many sources such as pilot lights, welding equipment and electric motors/switches. Fire hazard is greater as liquid temperature rises above 85 deg F. Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of vapor or contact with skin or eyes. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling can be harmful or fatal. First Aid: If swallowed, do not make person vomit. Call a doctor immediately. If product gets on the skin, wash with soap and water. If product gets in eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Remove contact lenses, if worn. If irritation persists, see a doctor. If overcome by vapors, move patient to fresh air. If not breathing, apply artificial respiration and call a doctor. Note to physician: For emergency information call 1-800-231-0623. Ingestion of this product or subsequent vomiting can result in aspiration of light hydrocarbon liquid which can cause pneumonitis. Prolonged breathing of vapors can cause central nervous system effects.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
IMMEDIATE HEALTH EFFECTS
Eye: Contact with the eyes causes irritation. Symptoms may include pain, tearing, reddening, swelling and impaired vision.
Skin: Contact with the skin causes irritation. Skin contact may cause drying or defatting of the skin. Symptoms may include pain, itching, discoloration, swelling, and blistering. Not expected to be harmful to internal organs if absorbed through the skin.
Ingestion: Because of its low viscosity, this material can directly enter the lungs, if swallowed, or if subsequently vomited. Once in the lungs it is very difficult to remove and can cause severe injury or death. May be irritating to mouth, throat, and stomach. Symptoms may include pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Inhalation: The vapor or fumes from this material may cause respiratory irritation. Symptoms of respiratory irritation may include coughing and difficulty breathing. Breathing this material at concentrations above the recommended exposure limits may cause central nervous system effects. Central nervous system effects may include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, weakness, loss of coordination, blurred vision, drowsiness, confusion, or disorientation. At extreme exposures, central nervous system effects may include respiratory depression, tremors or convulsions, loss of consciousness, coma or death.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
This product contains Stoddard solvent, a mixture of straight and branched-chain paraffins, naphthenes and aromatic hydrocarbons. Based on studies of Stoddard solvent sample 85-01 sponsored by the American Petroleum Institute, the acute dermal LD50 was found to be >3.0 g/kg and the acute oral LD50 was found to >5.0 g/kg. Acute inhalation toxicity tests showed a no observable effect level for inhalation of Stoddard solvent at 4.0 mg/l, with eye irritation and slight loss of coordination at 8 mg/l, and tremors, CNS depression and death within 7.5 hours of exposure to 10 mg/l. In a 28-day dermal study sponsored by the API, moderate skin irritation occurred at 200 mg/kg, with moderate to severe irritation above 1000 mg/kg. The API also determined the primary dermal irritation index to be 4.5, and the primary eye irritation index to be 0.0 at 24 hours. In human sensory response tests, exposure to Stoddard solvent at 0.60 mg/l caused mild eye and nose irritation after 30 minutes, with increased blink rate and eye irritation at 2.4 mg/l, and eye irritation and tearing at 2.7 mg/l. No significant effects on psychomotor performance were noted.
COMPONENT: Light Aromatic Solvent Naphtha (CAS 64742-95-6, also described as High-Flash Aromatic Naphtha, Type I, as defined by ASTM D-3734). GENETIC TOXICITY: No evidence of genetic toxicity was observed in the following tests: Salmonella typhimurium reverse mutation assay (Ames test), in vitro Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell HGPRT mutation assay, in vitro Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell chromosomal aberration assay, in vitro Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell sister chromatid exchange assay, and in vivo rat bone marrow chromosome aberration assay. SUBCHRONIC TOXICITY: In a 13-week rat inhalation study using dose levels of 0, 100, 500, and 1500 ppm for 6 hours/day, 5 days/week, no target organ toxicity including neurotoxicity was observed at any dose level. Slight general systemic toxicity (decreased body weight gain) was observed at 1500 ppm.
DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: In a mouse inhalation study using dose levels of 0, 100, 500, and 1500 ppm for 6 hours/day on gestation days 6-15, no signs of maternal toxicity or developmental toxicity were observed at 100 ppm. At 500 ppm, maternal toxicity (decreased body weight gain) and developmental toxicity (decreased fetal body weight) were observed. Severe maternal toxicity (44% mortality, decreased body weight gain, clinical signs of toxicity) and developmental toxicity (decreased number of live fetuses per litter, increased post-implantation losses per dam, decreased fetal body weights, delayed ossification, cleft palate) were observed at 1500 ppm. In a rat inhalation study using dose levels of 600, 1000, and 2000 mg/m3 for 24 hours/day on gestation days 7-15, signs of maternal toxicity (decreased body weight gain) were observed at all dose levels. At 600 mg/m3, no signs of fetal or developmental toxicity were observed. Signs of fetal toxicity (decreased male fetal body weight) and developmental toxicity (delayed ossification) were observed at 1000 and 2000 mg/m3. REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY: In a rat 3-generation inhalation study using dose levels of 0, 100, 500, and 1500 ppm for 6 hours/day, 5 days/week, no signs of general systemic or reproductive toxicity were observed at 100 ppm. At 500 ppm, slight parental toxicity (decreased body weight gain) and postnatal toxicity (decreased pup body weight) were observed, but reproductive parameters were not affected. Severe parental toxicity (mortality, decreased body weight gain, clinical signs of toxicity) and postnatal toxicity (decreased pup body weight) were observed at 1500 ppm, but reproductive parameters were not affected.
