DANGER! POISON. MAY BE FATAL OR CAUSE BLINDNESS IF SWALLOWED. VAPOR HARMFUL. SKIN AND EYE IRRITANT. USE ONLY WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION TO PREVENT BUILDUP OF VAPORS. Do not use in areas where vapors can accumulate and concentrate such as basements, bathrooms and small, enclosed areas. Whenever possible use outdoors in an open air area. If using indoors open all windows and doors and maintain a cross ventilation of moving fresh air across the work area. If strong odor is noticed or you experience slight dizziness -STOP- ventilation is inadequate. Leave area immediately. IF THE WORK AREA IS NOT WELL VENTILATED, DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. A dust mask does not provide protection against vapors.

DANGER! CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Do not puncture or incinerate. Do not store at or expose to temperatures above 120 deg F. Exposure to heat or prolonged exposure to sun can cause bursting. Contains Methanol and Methylene Chloride. Cannot be made nonpoisonous. Methylene Chloride has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. The risk to your health depends on the level and duration of exposure. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with neurological and other physiological damage. Intentional misuse of this product by deliberately concentrating and inhaling vapors can be harmful or fatal. Avoid contact with eyes and contact with skin. Avoid breathing of vapors or mist and contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not take internally. WARNING: Using this product will expose you to chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and reproductive harm.

Hazards Identification

Danger. Containers gas under pressure; may explode if heated. Causes skin irritation. Causes serious eye damage. Harmful if inhaled. May cause cancer. Causes damage to organs.

Potential Health Effects

Eye Contact: This material is an eye irritant. May cause irritation, burns, temporary corneal injury, redness, tearing, blurred vision, conjunctivitis of eyes, and corneal ulcerations of the eye. Vapors may irritate the eyes.

Skin Contact: This product is a skin irritant. Product may be absorbed through the skin. Harmful if absorbed through the skin. May cause itching; irritation; redness; defatting of the skin; drying of the skin; inflammation; discomfort or pain; swelling; dermatitis; and tissue damage. May cause symptoms listed under inhalation and ingestion. May increase the severity of symptoms listed under inhalation.

Inhalation: Vapor harmful. May cause dizziness; headache; burns and severe irritation to the respiratory tract; injuries to mucous membranes; watering of the eyes; weakness; drowsiness; nausea; numbness in fingers, arms, and legs; hot flashes; depression of the central nervous system; spotted vision; fatigue; dilation of pupils; increase in carboxyhemoglobin levels, which can cause stress to the cardiovascular system; arm, leg and chest pains; eye irritation; giddiness and intoxication; narcosis; anesthesia; confusion; olfactory changes; vomiting; visual disturbances; sleepiness; cough and dyspnea; cold, clammy extremities; diarrhea; irregular or rapid heartbeat; liver and kidney damage; unconsciousness; coma; and death. Severe overexposure may cause irregular or rapid heartbeat, convulsions, unconsciousness, and death. Intentional misuse of this product by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the vapors can be harmful or fatal. Elevated carboxyhemoglobin levels can be additive to the increase caused by smoking and other carbon monoxide sources. The propellant used in this product is a simple asphyxiant.

Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. May cause nausea; irritation to mouth, throat and stomach; loss of coordination; stupor; drowsiness; vomiting; depression of the central nervous system; narcosis; diarrhea; liver, kidney and heart damage; unconsciousness; and death. May produce symptoms listed under inhalation. Liquid aspirated into lungs may cause chemical pneumonitis and systemic effects.
Chronic Health Effects: From SDS:

Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with neurological and other physiological damage. Prolonged skin contact may cause irritation, redness, swelling and possible tissue destruction. Prolonged or repeated cont

IARC: Group 2B

ACGIH: A3

OSHA: Listed

NTP: Listed
First Aid: Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water, remove any contact lens, continue flushing with water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.

Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation from contact persists.

Inhalation: If user experiences breathing difficulty, move to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.

Ingestion: Call your poison control center, hospital emergency room, or physician immediately for instructions.

Notes to Physician: This product contains methanol which can cause intoxication and central nervous system depression. Methanol is metabolized to formic acid and formaldehyde. These metabolites can cause metabolic acidosis, visual disturbances and blindness. Since metabolism is required for these toxic symptoms, their onset may be delayed from 6 to 30 hours following ingestion. Ethanol competes for the same metabolic pathway and has been used to prevent methanol metabolism. Ethanol administration is indicated in symptomatic patients or at blood methanol concentrations above 20 ug/dl. Methanol is effectively removed by hemodialysis. Adrenalin should never be given to a person overexposed to methylene chloride. This material sensitizes the heart to the effects of sympathomimetic amines. Epinephrine and other sympathomimetic drugs may initiate cardiac arrhythmias in individuals exposed to this material. This material is metabolized to carbon monoxide. Consequently, elevations in carboxyhemoglobin as high as 50 percent have been reported, and levels may continue to rise for several hours after exposure has ceased. Data in experimental animals suggest there is a narrow margin between concentrations causing anesthesia and death.
