SKIN: Due to individual sensitization, this product can cause skin irritation upon INGESTION: Can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Aspiration of material into lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal. INHALATION: Excessive inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea and/or headache. Overexposure can cause neurological damage. 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.Conditions Aggravated By Exposure Effects of repeated overexposure. No evidence of adverse effects from available information.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:This product contains Crystalline Silica (CS) which is considered a hazard by inhalation. CS can also cause silicosis, a non-cancerous lung disease. Pigment dust would not normally be encountered when handling a packaged paint product containing pre-wetted pigment. Proper respiratory protection should be worn when sanding a dried paint film due to the presence of CS. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposures to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling contents may be harmful or fatal.
Carcinogenicity: This product contains Crystalline Silica (CS) which is considered a hazard by inhalation. The International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified CS as carcinogenic for humans (Class 1). This classification is based on the findings of laboratory animal studies that were considered sufficient and data from epidemiological studies that were considered limited for carcinogenicity. CS has not been classified as a carcinogen by OSHA or NTP. Pigment dust would not normally be encountered when handling a packaged paint product containing pre-wetted pigment. Proper respiratory protection should be worn when sanding a dried paint film due to the presence of CS. TITANIUM DIOXIDE: In an inhalation study, E.I. DuPonts Haskel Toxicology Laboratory found evidence of lung cancer (malignant tumors) in 1 out of 77 male rats and 13 out of 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 didnt cause cancer by the oral route.
First Aid: EYE: If this product comes in contact with the eyes, flush with large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower lids occasionally.
