Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Warning! Contains Crystalline Silica which can cause cancer (risk of cancer depends on the duration and level of exposure); thus, sanding dust is harmful if inhaled. USE ONLY WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION. Use only where air flow will keep vapors from building up, in or near the work area during and after application. When spraying, follow spraying equipment manufacturers' recommendations carefully. Wear appropriate respiratory, eye protection and protective clothing. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. When sanding dried film wear respiratory protection for dust to avoid breathing crystalline silica. Close container after each use. Do not transfer contents to other containers for storage. FIRST AID: If you experience difficulty breathing, leave the work area to obtain fresh air. In continued difficulty is experienced, get medical attention immediately. In case of eye contact, flush eye immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention. If swallowed, get medical attention immediately. VENTILATE THE WORK AREA. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. For emergency medical information call 1-800-228-5635. Bar code: 7 39092 20162 9
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Inhalation: Excessive inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea and/or headache. Overexposure can cause neurological damage. Inhalation of mists or vapors from hot operations, can cause mental sluggishness, pulmonary edema (accumulation of fluid in the lungs: signs and symptoms can be delayed for several hours) and bronchial pneumonia. Eye Contact: Trace amounts of amine and residual monomer vapors may be irritating to the eyes, especially in poorly ventilated areas. Irritation in the form of redness, tearing and/or blurred vision. Vapors can cause severe conjunctivitis. Skin Contact: Due to individual sensitization, this product can cause skin irritation upon prolonged or repeated contact. Ingestion: Can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Aspiration of material into lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal. Ethylene glycol is slightly toxic to humans. It causes mental sluggishness followed by difficulty in breathing and heart failure, kidney and brain damage, and possibly death. It is practically non-toxic to animals.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Effects of repeated overexposure. No evidence of adverse effects from available information. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling contents may be harmful or fatal.
Carcinogenicity: Titanium dioxide: In an inhalation study, E.I. DuPont's Haskel Toxicology Laboratory found evidence of lung cancer (malignant tumors) in 1 out of 77 male rats and 13 out 74 female rats after they were exposed to 250 mg/m3 titanium dioxide respirable dust for a two-year period. The exposure level of 250 mg/m3 is approximately 50 times that permitted in an occupational environment. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) conducted a feeding study in rats and mice in which either 25,000 or 50,000 parts per million titanium dioxide was given in their diets for two years. Under the conditions of the NCI test, titanium dioxide did not cause cancer by the oral route.
