Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDSHAZARD IDENTIFICATIONEmergency Overview: This material is a milky white liquid with a flash point greater than 200
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS This product contains Sodium O-Phenylphenate. Some substituted phenols have been shown to cause depigmentation (white patches on skin), even at diluted concentrations. O-Phenylphenol (OPP) has an important structural difference from the substituted phenol associated with depigmentation. OPP has been reported to produce depigmentation in experimental animals when given orally, but not by skin contact, and in humans only at concentrations that are also significantly irritating to the skin. OPP has not been found to cause depigmentation when present at concentrations used in disinfectant formulations.
Carcinogenicity: O-Phenylphenate has been identified by IARC as an animal carcinogen. Rats developed an increased incidence of bladder tumors in lifetime feeding experiments. IARC currently classifies Sodium O-Phenylphenate as a possible human carcinogen (Group 2B).
First Aid: Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for 30 minutes. Call a physician immediately. Lift the upper and lower eyelid occasionally. Get immediate medical attention.Skin contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of running water for 30 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. If needed, seek medical attention. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If conscious give plenty of water or milk. Get immediate medical attention. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person. Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if person is not breathing. Get medical attention if symptoms persist. Exposure to Final Product (diluted): In addition to the above, follow emergency and first aid procedures for exposures to bleach.
