The following information (Health Effects, Handling/Disposal, and Ingredients) is taken from the product label and/or the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) prepared by the manufacturer. The National Library of Medicine does not test products nor does it evaluate information from the product label or the MSDS. (What is an MSDS?)
Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Hazards Identification
EYE: Can cause severe irritation, redness, tearing, blurred vision.
SKIN: Prolonged or repeated contact can cause moderate irritation, defatting and/or dermatitis.
INGESTION: Can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Aspiration of material into the lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal. This product is judged to have an acute oral LD50 (rat) greater than 5 g/kg of body weight.
INHALATION: Excessive inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache. High vapor concentrations may result in CNS depression.

Conditions Aggravated By Exposure
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE: High vapor concentrations (greater than approximately 1000 ppm) are irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract, may cause headaches and dizziness, are anesthetic, and may have other
central nervous system effects including death.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Laboratory animal studies have shown that prolonged and repeated inhalation exposure to light hydrocarbon vapors in the same naphtha boiling range as this product can produce adverse kidney effects in male rats. However, these effects were not observed in similar studies with female rats and male and female mice and in limited studies with other animal species. Additionally, in a number of human studies, there was no clinical evidence of such effects at normal occupational levels. It is therefore highly unlikely that the kidney effects observed in male rats have significant implications for humans at or below the recommended vapor limits in the workplace.

Health studies have shown that many petroleum hydrocarbons and synthetic lubricants pose potential human health risks which may vary from person to person. As a precaution, exposure to liquids, vapors, mists or fumes should be minimized. Laboratory animal studies have shown that prolonged and repeated inhalation to light hydrocarbon vapors in the same naphtha boiling range as this product can produce adverse kidney effects in male rats. However, these
effects were not observed in similar studies with female rats and male and female mice and in limited studies with other animal species. Additionally, in a number of human studies, there was no clinical evidence of such effects at
normal occupational levels.

This product contains Crystalline Silica (CS) which is considered a hazard by inhalation. CS can 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.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
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). CS can also cause silicosis, a non-cancerous lung disease. 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.
First Aid: From MSDS
EYE: If splashed into the eyes, flush with clear water for 15 minutes or until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, call a physician.
SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing/shoes. Flush skin with water. Follow by washing with soap and water. If irritation occurs, get medical attention. DO NOT REUSE clothing until cleaned.
INGESTION: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration of liquid into the lungs. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION.
INHALATION: Remove victim to fresh air and provide oxygen if breathing is difficult. If breathing stops, begin artificial respiration and seek immediate medical attention.
