Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Inhalation: Vapors or mist, in excess of permissible concentrations, or in unusually high concentrations generated from spraying, heating the material or as from exposure in poorly ventilated areas or confined spaces, may cause irritation of the nose and throat, headache, nausea, and drowsiness.
Eye Contact: May cause minimal irritation, experienced as temporary discomfort.
Skin Contact: Brief contact is not irritating. Adverse effects are not expected from brief skin contact. Prolonged contact with skin, as with clothing wetted with material, may cause defatting of skin or irritation, seen as local redness with possible mild discomfort.
Ingestion: If more than several mouthfuls of this material are swallowed, give two glasses of water (16 oz). Get medical attention.
