Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Contains crystalline silica. Use only with adequate ventilation. To avoid overexposure, open windows and doors or use other means to ensure fresh air entry during application and drying. If you experience eye watering, headaches, or dizziness, increase fresh air, or wear respiratory protection (NIOSH/MSHA TC23C or equivalent) or leave area. Adequate ventilation required when sanding or abrading the dried film. If adequate ventilation cannot be provided wear an approved particulate respirator (NIOSH/MSHA TC21C or equivalent). Follow respirator manufacturer's directions for respirator use. Avoid contact with eyes or skin. Wash hands after using. Keep container closed when not in use. Do not transfer contents to other containers for storage. Delayed effects from long term exposure: Abrading or sanding of the dry film may release crystalline silica which has been shown to cause lung damage and cancer under long term exposure. Do not take internally. Keep out of reach of children.
