Construction and repair activities can adversely affect indoor air quality. Consult with occupants or a representative (i.e. maintenance, building manager, industrial hygienist, or safety officer) to determine ways to minimize impact.Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not store at temperatures above 120 degrees F. Store containers away from excessive heat and freezing. Keep containers closed when not in use. Store away from caustics and oxidizers.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: A gray paste product with a solvent odor. DANGER! Vapors may ignite explosively. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not breathe dust, vapors or spray mist. Use only with adequate ventilation. Prevent build-up of vapors by opening all windows and doors to achieve cross-ventilation. Aspiration hazard if swallowed. Aspiration may cause pulmonary edema and pneumonitis.Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Inhalation, Ingrestion, Eye Contact.Eye Contact: Causes eye irritation. May cause eye irritation.Skin Contact: Causes skin irritation. Prolonged and repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis, drying and defatting due to the solvent properties.Inhalation: Vapor harmful. May affect the brain or nervous system causing dizziness, headache or nausea. Vapors are harmful when inhaled. Inhalation of vapors in high concentration may cause irritation of respiratory system. Inhalation may cause irritation to the respiratory tract (nose, mouth, mucous membranes). Can cause nerve damage to arms and legs. Effects may be permanent.Ingestion: Harmful or fatal if swallowed. If ingested, may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and depressed respiration. May be harmful if swallowed. Aspiration into lungs may cause pulmonary edema and chemical pneumonitis.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: None known.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Symptoms include: loss of memory, loss of intellectual ability and loss of coordination. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful or fatal. Prolonged or repeated contact with acetone can cause defattening of the skin, which may lead to dermatitis. Overexposure or misuse of toluene can cause liver, kidney, and brain damage as well as cardiac abnormalities. There have been cases of aplastic anemia from toluene in industrial exposures (ACGIH, 1992). Increased coagulation time and reduced clotting factors have also been found, which are indicators of damage to the bone marrow (Clayton and; Clayton, 1994). n-Hexane exposure can cause nerve damage to arms and legs causing numbness of the fingers and toes, effect may be permanent. Symptoms include: loss of memory, loss of intellectual ability and loss of coordination.
Carcinogenicity: None known.
First Aid: Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes until irritation subsides. Get medical attention.Skin Contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes.Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Get medical attention immediately.
