Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! Do not breathe vapors. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe dust. While dry sanding, use of a NIOSH-approved dust mask is recommended. Removal of this product after use will result in the generation of Dust. If dry-sanded, exposure to dust may result in the build -up of material in eyes, ears, nose, and mouth which may cause irritation. Avoid excessive heat and handling. Wash thoroughly after handling.Avoid excessive heat and freezing. Do not store at temperatures above 120 degrees F. Keep tightly closed. Store away from caustics and oxidizers.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: A white to off-white paste product with a very slight ammonia odor. WARNING! May cause eye, skin, nose, throat and respiratory tract irritation. Removal of this product after use or by dry sanding will generate dust and exposure to this dust may be irritating to the eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Harmful by inhalation and if swallowed. If drysanded, exposure to dust may result in build-up of material in eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. This product contains ethylene glycol.Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Skin Absorption, Eye Contact.Eye Contact: May cause eye irritation.Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation. May cause dry skin.Inhalation: Inhalation of dust may cause lung damage or other adverse pulmonary and respiratory effects. Inhalation may cause irritation to the Ingestion: Ingestion of ethylene glycol can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and if ingested in sufficient quantities, death. 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: If dry sanded, asthma and asthma-like conditions may worsen from prolonged or repeated exposure to dust.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:No information provided.
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. Prolonged, repeated, or high exposures may cause weakness and depression of the central nervous system.Ethylene Glycol may cause kidney and liver damage upon prolonged and repeated overexposures. Studies have shown that repeated inhalation of ethylene glycol has produced adverse cardiovascular changes in laboratory animals. Ethylene glycol has been shown to cause birth defects in laboratory animals.
First Aid: Eye Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.Skin Contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. Remove and wash contaminated clothing. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued breathing difficulty is experienced, get medical attention immediately.Ingestion: Call a physician or Poison Control Center immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
