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...
Warnings: Combustible liquid and vapor. Contains petroleum distillate and crystalline silica. Crystalline silica can cause cancer (risk of cancer depends on duration and level of exposure; thus, sanding dust is harmful. May effect the brain or nervous system causing dizziness, headache or nausea. Causes eye, skin, nose and throat irritation. 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. Keep away from heat and flame. Do not smoke. Use only with adequate ventilation. Prevent buildup of vapors by opening all windows and doors to achieve cross ventilation. When spraying, follow spay equipment manufacturer's recommendations carefully. If you experience eye watering, headaches or dizziness, increase fresh air or wear respiratory protection (NIOSH/MSHA TC 23C or equivalent) or leave the area. When sanding dried film wear respiratory protection for dusts to avoid breathing crystalline silica. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Close container after each use. Do not transfer contents to other containers for storage. Ventilate work area. Do not take internally. Keep out of reach of children.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Hazards Identification
Eve Hazards: Can cause severe irritation, redness, tearing, blurred vision.
Skin Hazards: Prolonged or repeated contact can cause moderate irritation, defatting and/or dermatitis.
Ingestion Hazards: 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 Hazards: Excessive inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache. High vapor concentrations may result in CNS depression.

Conditions Aqqravated 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
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 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.

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 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. Dupont's Haskel Toxicology Laboratory found evidence of lung cancer (malignant tumors) in 1 out of 77 male rats and 13 out of 74 female rates 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.
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.
