Potential Health Effects

Eye Contact: May cause mild irritation including stinging and redness, but does not injure eye.

Skin Contact: Single, brief exposures may cause mild irritation. Frequent or prolonged contact may cause more severe irritation, defatting of the skin, and dermatitis.

Inhalation: High vapor concentrations are irritating to the respiratory tract and may cause headaches, dizziness, anesthesia, drowsiness, unconsciousness and other central nervous system effects, including death. May cause peripheral nervous system disorder and/or damage. Heating the dispensed grease may generate irritating vapors.
