Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Emergency Overview
WARNING! Product contents under pressure. Container may burst or explode if heated or exposed to fire. Can cause uncontrollable release of material and irritating or toxic decomposition products. Product is essentially non-irritating to skin in most people. Contact with this uncured (wet or sticky) product may cause irritation to skin, eyes, mucous membranes and respiratory system.
Harmful if swallowed or inhaled. May cause dizziness, incoordination, headache, nausea, and vomiting. Individuals with preexisting sensitization to isocyanates may experience breathlessness, severe coughing, wheezing, chest discomfort, nose and throat irritation, reduced lung function and aggravation of pre-existing asthma or other lung conditions.
Potential Health Effects
Inhalation: Inhalation of vapors or mists of the product may be irritating to the respiratory system. May cause dizziness, incoordination, headache, nausea, and vomiting. Repeated exposure may lead to respiratory sensitization, producing an asthma-like condition. Inhaling extremely high concentrations of blowing agent may cause lightheadedness, headache, giddiness, shortness of breath, and may lead to narcosis, cardiac irregularities, unconsciousness and even death. Seek immediate medical attention if symptoms develop.
Skin Contact: Product is essentially non-irritating to skin in most individuals. Product adheres to skin like an adhesive and is difficult to remove when cured. Avoid severe scrubbing, scraping or peeling off material that can irritate or damage skin. Direct contact with uncured product can cause localized irritation and discoloration of skin in some individuals. Repeated or prolonged skin contact with uncured product may cause reddening, swelling, or blistering or an allergic reaction (sensitization) in some individuals. Seek immediate medical attention if symptoms develop.
Eye Contact:
This product may cause irritation to the eyes. Direct contact in eyes with cured product may result in mechanical abrasion to cornea or physical damage to eyes. Direct contact in eyes with uncured product may cause tissue damage due to the adhesive properties of this product. Seek medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: This product may be harmful if it is swallowed. Uncured product may produce corrosive damage to the gastrointestinal tract if it is swallowed. May obstruct free passage of food in gastrointestinal tract and air in the respiratory tract. Cured foam is not considered toxic.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:
Exposure to individuals with asthma, eczema, and/or allergies may aggravate pre-existing conditions. Symptoms may include coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Individuals with pre-existing sensitization to isocyanates may experience breathlessness, severe coughing, dyspnea, wheezing, chest discomfort, nose and throat irritation and reduced pulmonary function. Seek immediate medical attention if symptoms develop.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Methylene bisphenol isocyanate (MDI) exposure can cause irritation to the eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Exposure to MDI can cause allergic skin reaction, allergic lung reaction with asthma-like symptoms, and reduces pulmonary function.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
ACGIH, IARC, OSHA, and NTP carcinogen lists have been checked for those components with CAS registry numbers:
Methylene bisphenol isocyanate (MDI) (101-68-8)
IARC: Monograph 19, Supplement 7; 1987 (Group 3 (not classifiable)
First Aid: From MSDS
Inhalation: If inhaled, immediately remove the affected person to fresh air. If symptoms persist, get medical attention.
Skin Contact: For skin contact, remove excess foam mechanically by gently scraping away. Uncured foam can be removed immediately with hand cleaner or nail polish remover. Wash with soap and running water. Do not apply any substance to damaged skin. If irritation persists, get medical attention. Cured foam cannot be removed with solvents and can only be removed mechanically. Peanut butter may be effective in removing partially cured foam from the skin on hands or arms. This method is not recommended for individuals with allergies to peanuts or peanut oil. Do not apply any substance to damaged skin.
Alternative method: remove excess foam mechanically by gently scraping away. Soak the skin in warm soapy water for 10-20 minutes gently pushing an edge of the material in one direction. Do not pull or tear the foam off since this can remove the top layer of skin and cause injury. If residual remains, repeat with vegetable oil, baby oil or lotion, to loosen bond. This process may also take 10-20 minutes. If there is still foam on your skin, no further action is suggested. Foam will wear off in the next few days.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of running water for at least 15 minutes, holding eyelids apart. If product gets into eyes or symptoms develop seek medical attention.
Ingestion: If the material is swallowed, seek immediate medical attention or advice -- Do not induce vomiting.
