Keep away from heat, spark, and flame. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Keep containers from excessive heat and freezing. Do not store at temperatures above 120 degrees F.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationPrimary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, InhalationEye contact: May cause eye irritation.Skin contact: May irritate skin. Prolonged or repeated contact can result in defatting and drying of the skin which may result in skin irritation and dermatitis (rash). Can be absorbed through the skin.Inhalation: Vapor harmful if inhaled. Vapor may irritate nose and upper respiratory tract. Vapor inhalation may affect the brain or nervous system causing dizziness, headache or nausea. Prolonged vapor inhalation may result in severe physical injury.Ingestion: This material may be harmful or fatal if swallowed. Aspiration of material into the lungs due to vomiting can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal. If ingested, this product may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and depressed respiration.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: None known.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Reports have associated permanent brain and nervous system damage with prolonged and repeated occupational overexposure to solvents. Symptoms include: loss of memory, loss of intellectual ability and loss of coordination. Overexposure or misuse of xylene can cause liver, kidney and brain damage as well as cardiac abnormalities and reproductive toxicity.
Carcinogenicity: This product contains ethylbenzene. The International Agency for Research of Cancer (IARC) has classified ethylbenzene as a Group 2B carcinogen possibly carcinogenic to humans. While there is inadequate evidence of carcinogenicity in humans, this compound shows sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in animals (IARC, 2001). The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified ethylbenzene as a Class D carcinogen (not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity). This is based on the lack of animal bioassays and human studies. The American Conference ofGovernmental Industrial Hygienists has classified ethylbenzene as a Confirmed Animal Carcinogen with Unknown Relevance to Humans. There should be minimal risk when used with ventilation adequate to keep the atmospheric concentration of ethylbenzene below the recommended exposure limit.
First Aid: Eye contact: Immediately flush with large quantities of water until irritation subsides. Get medical attention immediately.Skin contact: Wash with soap and water.Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Contact a physican immediately. Note: Only trained personnel should give artificial respiration or administer oxygen.Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Get medical attention immediately.
