Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: Viscous liquid which foams upon release from container as an off-white to yellowish froth. DANGER! Extremely flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors may cause flash fire or explosion. The primary adverse health effects of this product are related to the Polymeric Isocyanate (MDI) component. Therefore, adequate ventilation should be provided to avoid exceeding the exposure limits of these components. May cause eye, skin, nose,throat and respiratory tract irritation. May cause sensitization by inhalation and skin contact. This product has strong adhesive-like characteristics and will adhere aggressively to skin and other surfaces. If accidental contact occurs, follow the appropriate first-aid procedure described in Section 4 of this MSDS. Harmful if inhaled. Aspiration hazard if swallowed- can enter lungs and cause damage. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Contents under pressure. Do not puncture can. Exposure to temperatures above 120 deg. F may cause can to rupture. The likelihood of exceeding these limits are low due to the low concentration of vapor produced during normal use. However, if used indoors, mechanical ventilation or exhaust should be provided during use and until product is cured. MDI vapor can irritate the respiratory tract causing runny nose, sore throat, coughing and reduce lung function.Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Inhalation, Ingestion, Eye Contact.Eye Contact: May be irritating to eyes. Foam contact can cause physical damage due to adhesive character.Skin Contact: May cause sensitization by skin contact. Harmful: possible risk of irreversible effects in contact with skin. Prolonged and repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis, drying and defatting due to the solvent properties. This product has strong adhesive-like characteristics and will adhere aggressively to skin and other surfaces. Inhalation: Vapors may be irritating to eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Inhalation of vapors is irritating to the respiratory system, may cause throat pain and cough. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful or fatal.Ingestion: Harmful or fatal if swallowed. If ingested, may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and depressed respiration. May cause irritation of mucous membranes in the mouth and digestive tract. Aspiration of material into the lungs due to vomiting can cause chemical pneumonitis, which can be fatal.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: Asthma and asthma-like conditions may worsen from prolonged and repeated exposure.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:None known.
Carcinogenicity: No information provided.
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: Use a rag to remove excess foam from skin and remove contaminated clothing. Use of a solvent, such as acetone (nail polish remover) or mineral spirits, may help in removing uncured foam residue from clothing or other surfaces (avoid eye contact). Cured foam may be physically removed by persistent washing with soap and water. If irritation develops, use mild skin cream. If irritation persists, obtain medical attention.Inhalation: Move to fresh air.Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Get medical attention immediately. If conscious, drink plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
