Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! Do not breathe vapors. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid excessive heat and handling. Do not breathe dust. While dry sanding, use of a NIOSH-approved dust mask is recommended. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. 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.Store away from caustics and oxidizers. Do not store at temperatures above 120 degrees F. Keep tightly closed. Avoid excessive heat and freezing.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: A white to off-white paste with a slight sweet odor. CAUTION! May cause eye, skin, nose, throat and respiratory tract irritation. This product contains ethylene glycol.Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Inhalation, Skin Absorption.Eye Contact: May cause eye irritation.Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation. May cause dry skin.Inhalation: Harmful if inhaled. Inhalation may cause irritation to the respiratory tract (nose, mouth, mucous membranes). Inhalation of dust may cause lung damage or other adverse pulmonary and respiratory effects.Ingestion: Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.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: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. Ethyleneglycol has been shown to cause birth defects in laboratory animals.
Carcinogenicity: Formaldehyde vapor is a known animal carcinogen according to OSHA and NTP and is considered possibly carcinogenic to humans by inhalation. The International Agency for Research on Cancer considers formaldehyde to be a human carcinogen.This product contains vinyl acetate which is classified as a class 2B carcinogen by IARC. Vinyl acetate was found to cause cancer in the respiratory tract of laboratory animals. There is no evidence that vinyl acetate causes cancer in humans. The IARC published a monograph on vinyl acetate (1995). In this monograph, IARC indicates ***there is inadequate evidence in humans for carcinogenicity of vinyl acetate. There is limited evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity of vinyl acetate.*** Normally, this lack of conclusive evidence would place a substance in the IARC 3 classification (not classified as a human carcinogen). However, because vinyl acetate is metabolized to acetaldehyde, which has an IARC 2B (possibly carcinogenic to humans) classification, it also has been listed under Category 2B. Prolonged, repeated, or high exposures may cause weakness and depression of the central nervous system.
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 soap and plenty of water.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.
