Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Warning: Eye and repiratory irritant. Bonds to skin in seconds. Contains cyanoacrylate. May cause allergic skin reaction. Skin contact through clothing may cause burns. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep out of reach of children
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:

Hazards Identification

Emergency Overview: Bonds skin in seconds. Combustible liquid. Causes eye irritation. May cause respiratory irritation.

Potential Health Effects

Relevant routes of exposure: Skin, Inhalation, Eyes.

Eye Contact: Irritating to eyes. Causes excessive tearing. Eyelids may bond.

Skin Contact: Bonds skin in seconds. May cause skin irritation. Cyanoacrylates have been reported to cause allergic reaction but due to rapid polymerization at the skin surface, an allergic response is rare. Cyanoacrylates generate heat on solidification. In rare circumstances a large drop will burn the skin. Cured adhesive does not present a health hazard even if bonded to the skin.

Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. Exposure to vapors above the established exposure limit results in respiratory irritation, which may lead to difficulty in breathing and tightness in the chest.

Ingestion: Not expected to be harmful by ingestion. Rapidly polymerizes (solidifies) and bonds in mouth. It is almost impossible to swallow.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:

No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: Not listed by IARC, NTP and OSHA.
First Aid: Eye Contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention. If eyelids are bonded closed, release eyelashes with warm water by covering with a wet pad. Do not force eye open. Cyanoacrylate will bond to eye protein and will cause a lachrymatory effect which will help to debond the adhesive. Keep eye covered until debonding is complete, usually within 1-3 days. Medical attention should be sought in case solid particles of polymerized cyanoacrylate trapped behind the eyelid caused abrasive damage.

Skin Contact: Do not pull bonded skin apart. Soak in warm soapy water. Gently peel apart using a blunt instrument. If skin is burned due to the rapid generation of heat by a large drop, seek medical attention. If lips are bonded, apply warm water to the lips and encourage wetting and pressure from saliva in mouth. Peel or roll lips apart. Do not pull lips apart with direct opposing force.

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

Ingestion: Ensure breathing passages are not obstructed. The product will polymerize rapidly and bond to the mouth making it almost impossible to swallow. Saliva will separate any solidified product in several hours. Prevent the patient from swallowing any separated mass.

Notes to Physician: Surgery is not necessary to separate accidentally bonded tissues. Experience has shown that bonded tissues are best treated by passive, non-surgical first aid. If rapid curing has caused thermal burns they should be treated symptomatically after adhesive is removed.
MSDS Date: 2014-09-03
Handling: Prevent contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Do not breathe vapor and mist. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid contact with fabric or paper goods. Contact with these materials may cause rapid polymerization which can generate smoke and strong irritating vapors, and cause thermal burns. Keep in a cool, well ventilated area away from heat, sparks and open flame. Keep container tightly closed until ready for use.
Disposal: Follow all local, state, federal and provincial regulations for disposal.
