Hazards Identification

Emergency Overview: DANGER: Extremely Flammable. Vapors May Cause Flash Fires. Harmful If Swallowed. Eye Irritant. Contents Under Pressure

Potential Health Effects

Eye Contact: Eye irritant. Contact may cause moderate to severe eye irritation including stinging, watering and redness.

Skin Contact: Contact may cause redness, itching, burning, and skin damage. Prolonged or repeated contact can worsen irritation by causing drying and cracking of the skin, leading to dermatitis (inflammation). Passage of this material into the body through the skin is possible, but it is unlikely that this would result in harmful effects during safe handling and use.

Inhalation: Breathing large amounts of this material may be harmful. Effects of overexposure may include irritation to the respiratory tract and signs of nervous system depression (headache, nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination, unconsciousness, disorientation and fatigue).

Ingestion: Main hazard is aspiration. This material can enter lungs during swallowing or vomiting and cause lung inflammation and damage. Swallowing this material may also cause nausea and diarrhea. Acetone poisoning may result in liver and kidney damage.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Skin disorders, respiratory (asthma-like) disorders
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:

Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent

brain and nervous system damage.
Carcinogenicity: Not listed..
First Aid: Eye Contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Call a physician if irritation persists.

Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with soap and water. Call a physician if irritation persists. Wash contaminated clothing prior to re-use.

Inhalation: Remove person to fresh air. Keep person calm. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult give oxygen. Call a physician.

Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting or give anything by mouth because material can enter the lungs and cause severe lung damage. Seek medical attention immediately.

Note to Physicians: Aspiration hazard. This material (or a component) has produced hyperglycemia and ketosis following substantial ingestion.

For product use instructions, please see the product label. Aerosol cans must be maintained below 120 deg F / 49 deg C to prevent cans from rupturing. Use and store this material in cool, dry, well-ventilated areas away from heat, direct sunlight, hot metal surfaces, and all sources of ignition. Keep away from incompatible material.
Disposal: All disposal activities must comply with federal, state, provincial and local regulations. Local regulations may be more stringent than state, provincial or national requirements.
