Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. Vapors are heavier than air and will collect in low areas. Check all low areas (basements, sumps, etc.) for vapor before entering. Do not breathe vapors. Keep containers closed when not in use. Use in well ventilated area. Provide fresh air such that chemical odors cannot be detected during use and while drying. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from heat. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not smoke. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling vapors may be harmful or fatal.Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Avoid excessive heat and freezing. Do not store at temperatures above 120 degrees F. Store away from caustics and oxidizers.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: A white to off-white paste product with a strong solvent odor. WARNING! Vapors may ignite explosively. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not breathe vapors. Combustible liquid and vapor. May cause eye, skin, nose, throat and respiratory tract irritation. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Avoid skin and eye contact.Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Skin Absorption, Inhalation.Eye Contact: May cause eye irritation. Signs and symptoms may include: pain, tears, swelling, redness and blurred vision.Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation.Inhalation: Vapor harmful. May affect the brain or nervous system causing dizziness, headache or nausea. Inhalation of high vapor concentrations can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis. Inhalation may cause irritation to the respiratory tract (nose, mouth, mucous membranes).Ingestion: Harmful or fatal if swallowed. If ingested, may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and depressed respiration. Ingestion may result in obstruction when material hardens.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: Pre-existing eye, skin and pulmonary disorders may be aggravated by exposure to this product.
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 skin can cause defatting of the skin, which may lead to dermatitis.
Carcinogenicity: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite that is inhaled from occupational sources is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1- carcinogenic to humans). Refer to IARC Monograph 68, Silica, Some Silicates and Organic Fibres (published in June 1997) in conjunction with the use of these materials. The National Toxicology Program (NTP) classifies respirable crystalline silica as ***known to be a human carcinogen***. Refer to the 9th Report on Carcinogens (2000). The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) classifies crystalline silica, quartz, as a suspected human carcinogen (Group A2). Breathing dust containing respirable crystalline silica may not cause noticeable injury or illness even though permanent lung damage may be occurring. Inhalation of dust may have the following serious chronic health effects: Excessive inhalation of respirable dust can cause pneumoconiosis, a respiratory disease, which can result in delayed, progressive, disabling and sometimes fatal lung injury. Symptoms include cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, non-specific chest illness and reduced pulmonary function. Smoking exacerbates this disease. Individuals with pneumoconiosis are predisposed to develop tuberculosis. There is some evidence that breathing respirable crystalline silica or the disease silicosis is associated with an increased incidence of significant disease endpoints such as scleroderma (an immune system disorder manifested by fibrosis of the lungs, skin and other internal organs) and kidney disease.
First Aid: Eye Contact: If material gets into eyes, flush with water immediately for 15 minutes. Consult a physician.Skin Contact: Wash off with soap and water.Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Harmful or fatal if liquid is aspirated into the lungs. If swallowed, drink 8-10 oz. of water, get immediate medical attention.
