During use and until all vapors are gone: Keep area ventilated - Do not smoke - Extinguish all flames, pilot lights, and heaters - Turn off stoves, electric tools and appliances, and any other sources of ignition. Contains Xylene. Vapor harmful. Use only with adequate ventilation. If you experience eye watering, headaches, or dizziness, increase fresh air, or wear respiratory protection or leave the area. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after using. Keep container closed when not in use. Donot transfer contents to other containers for storage. Delayed effects from long term exposure: solvents which can cause permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal. Warning: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationSigns and Symptoms of Exposure: Headache, dizziness, nausea, and loss of coordination are indications of excessive exposure to vapors or spray mists.Redness and itching or burning sensation may indicate eye or excessive skin exposure.Routes of Exposure: Inhalation, Eye Contact, Skin Contact.Potential Health EffectsEye contact: Irritation.Skin contact: Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause irritation.Inhalation: Irritation of the upper respiratory system. May cause nervous system depression. Extreme overexposure may result in unconsciousness and possibly death.Medical conditions aggravated by exposure: None generally recognized.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:Prolonged overexposure to hazardous ingredients may cause adverse chronic effects to the following organs or systems: the liver, the urinary system, the reproductive system.Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
Carcinogenicity: Ethylbenzene is classified by IARC as possibly carcinogenic to humans (2B) based on inadequate evidence in humans and sufficient evidence in laboratory animals. Lifetime inhalation exposure of rats and mice to high ethylbenzene concentrations resulted in increases in certain types of cancer, including kidney tumors in rats and lung and liver tumors in mice. These effects were not observed in animals exposed to lower concentrations. There is no evidence that ethylbenzene causes cancer in humans. IARCs Monograph No. 93 reports there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental rats exposed to titanium dioxide but inadequate evidence for carcinogenicity in humans and has assigned a Group 2B rating. In addition, the IARC summary concludes, No significant exposure to titanium dioxide is thought to occur during the use of products in which titanium is bound to other materials, such as paint.
First Aid: Eye contact: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention.Skin contact: Wash affected area thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use.Inhalation: If affected, remove from exposure. Restore breathing. Keep warm and quiet.Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately
