Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: FLAMMABLE. HARMFUL IF INHALED. CAN CAUSE DIZZINESS, HEADACHES OR NAUSEA. CAUSES IRRITATION TO EYES AND SKIN. Contains Propyl Acetate and Petroleum Distillate. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Use with adequate ventilation to avoid breathing vapor, open windows and doors to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. FIRST AID. INHALATION: More to fresh air. If breathing difficulty persists, get medical attention. EYES: Flush immediately with water for at least 15 minutes. SKIN: Wash thoroughly with soap and water. INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Bar Code: 0-76818-15001-5
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Inhalation: Dizziness may occur at 200 ppm; progressively higher levels can cause irritation of the respiratory tract, drunkenness, nausea, incoordination, unconsciousness and even asphyxiation in confined poorly ventilated areas. Pre-existing lung, eye, and skin conditions may be generally aggravated by exposure. Eye Contact: Product in eyes can result in discomfort, pain and irritation. Vapors may irritate the eyes at about 100 ppm. Skin Contact: A single prolonged exposure is not likely to result in material being absorbed through the skin in harmful amounts. The LD50 of tetrachloroethylene for skin absorption in rabbits is >10,000 mg/kg. Ingestion: Single dose oral toxicity is low. Ingestion may result in irritation of the mouth and gastrointestinal tract along with other effects as listed above for inhalation. Do not induce vomiting.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Tetrachloroethylene has been shown to increase rate of spontaneously occurring malignant tumors in certain lab rats and mice. Other long-term inhalation studies in rats failed to show tumorigenic response. Epidemiology studies are limited and have not established an association between tetrachloroethylene exposure and cancer. Did not cause birth defects in animals. Birth defects unlikely. Prolonged exposure above OSHA permissible limits may result in liver and kidney damage.
Carcinogenicity: One or more components in this mixture are listed as potential carcinogens by NTP, IARC and OSHA.

Handling/Disposal
Handling: In large quantities, lethal concentrations may exist in areas with poor ventilation. Do not use in poorly ventilated or confined spaces without proper respiratory protection. Vapors will collect in low places such as pits, storage tanks and other confined spaces. Do not enter these areas unless special breathing apparatus is used and an observer is present.
Disposal: Reclaim or incinerate the non-hardened product. Material resulting from clean up operations may be hazardous waste and therefore, subject to specific regulations. Dispose of in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations at the time o
