Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
INHALATION: Avoid prolonged inhalation of vapors. This product may be considered a low health hazard unless inhaled in very high concentrations. Acute and chronic exposure to vapors may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Severe intoxication may lead to drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. May cause central nervous system depression followed by excitation. Exposure to even higher concentrations may lead to loss of consciousness and convulsions followed by death. At extremely high concentrations where oxygen displacement is a factor, asphyxiation may occur.
EYE CONTACT: Avoid eye contact. This product can cause corneal burns, twitching and redness. These effects are transient, and complete recovery follows.
SKIN CONTACT: Avoid skin contact. This product may cause skin irritation upon direct contact. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. This condition may make the skin more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers, and disease. Pre-existing skin conditions may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake by this route. May be absorbed through skin.
INGESTION: Do not ingest. Ingestion of small quantities is usually nonfatal unless aspiration occurs. Aspiration may lead to chemical pneumonitis which is characterized by pulmonary edema and hemorrhage and may be fatal. Signs of lung involvement include increased respiratory rate, increased heart rate, and a bluish discoloration of the skin. Coughing, choking, and gagging are often noted at the time of aspiration. Gastrointestinal discomfort may develop, followed by vomiting with a further risk of aspiration. Severe oral intoxication will lead to intense burning of the throat and may result in drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. Loss of consciousness and convulsions followed by death may result.
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Pre-existing skin conditions may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake by this route.
