Emergency Overview

Not classified as flammable or combustible but will burn under fire conditions. Direct eye contact may cause transient discomfort. Not toxic by inhalation, skin contact or ingestion.

Potential Health Effects

Inhalation: No significant adverse health effects are expected from inhalation exposure.

Skin contact: No significant irritation is expected.

Eye contact: Direct contact may cause stinging and tearing but no residual injury or discomfort.

Ingestion: Considered relatively non-toxic following acute ingestion, however, lactic acidosis, stupor and seizures have been reported following chronic ingestion. Renal and hepatic toxicity have been reported in experimental animals.

Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:


Carcinogenicity: None of the components of this product are listed as a carcinogen or suspected carcinogen by IARC, NTP, ACGIH, or OSHA.
First Aid: Inhalation: No adverse effects are expected, however, if irritation or other symptoms develop, remove to fresh air. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing and wash skin with soap and water. Seek medical attention if irritation develops.

Eye contact: Immediately flush with water, holding open eyelids, for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Ingestion: If swallowed, get immediate medical advice by calling a poison control center or emergency room. Take the victim and the product container to the nearest emergency treatment center or hospital. Do not attempt to induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Notes to Physician: Following acute ingestion signs of toxicity are unlikely. Ethanol treatment as in ethylene glycol poisoning is inappropriate. There is no specific antidote. Treatment should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition. Monitor for acidosis and central nervous system effects.
