Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Caution: Light Aromatic Solvent Naphtha. Do not use or store near flame, spark or hot surface. Use only in well ventilated area. Keep container closed. Clean up spills immediately. Liquid evaporates and forms vapors (fumes) which can catch fire and burn with explosive violence. Invisible vapors spread easily and can be set on fire by many sources such as pilot lights, welding equipment and electric motors/switches. Fire hazard is greater as liquid temperature rises above 85 deg F. Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of vapor or contact with skin or eyes. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling can be harmful or fatal. First Aid: If swallowed, do not make person vomit. Call a doctor immediately. If product gets on the skin, wash with soap and water. If product gets in eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Remove contact lenses, if worn. If irritation persists, see a doctor. If overcome by vapors, move patient to fresh air. If not breathing, apply artificial respiration and call a doctor. Note to physician: For emergency information call 1-800-231-0623. Ingestion of this product or subsequent vomiting can result in aspiration of light hydrocarbon liquid which can cause pneumonitis. Prolonged breathing of vapors can cause central nervous system effects.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Eye: Contact with the eyes causes irritation. Symptoms may include pain, tearing, reddening, swelling and impaired vision.
Skin: Contact with the skin causes irritation. Skin contact may cause drying or defatting of the skin. Symptoms may include pain, itching, discoloration, swelling, and blistering. Not expected to be harmful to internal organs if absorbed through the skin.
Ingestion: Because of its low viscosity, this material can directly enter the lungs, if swallowed, or if subsequently vomited. Once in the lungs it is very difficult to remove and can cause severe injury or death. May be irritating to mouth, throat, and stomach. Symptoms may include pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Inhalation: The vapor or fumes from this material may cause respiratory irritation. Symptoms of respiratory irritation may include coughing and difficulty breathing. Breathing this material at concentrations above the recommended exposure limits may cause central nervous system effects. Central nervous system effects may include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, weakness, loss of coordination, blurred vision, drowsiness, confusion, or disorientation. At extreme exposures, central nervous system effects may include respiratory depression, tremors or convulsions, loss of consciousness, coma or death.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
This product contains Stoddard solvent, a mixture of straight and branched-chain paraffins, naphthenes and aromatic hydrocarbons. Based on studies of Stoddard solvent sample 85-01 sponsored by the American Petroleum Institute, the acute dermal
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
No information provided.
First Aid: From MSDS
Eye: Flush eyes with water immediately while holding the eyelids open. Remove contact lenses, if worn, after initial flushing, and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
Skin: Wash skin with water immediately and remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if any symptoms develop. To remove the material from skin, use soap and water. Discard contaminated clothing and shoes or thoroughly clean before reuse.
Ingestion: If swallowed, get immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Inhalation: Move the exposed person to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention if breathing difficulties continue.
Note to Physicians: Ingestion of this product or subsequent vomiting may result in aspiration of light hydrocarbon liquid, which may cause pneumonitis.

Handling: From MSDS
Precautionary Measures: Liquid evaporates and forms vapor (fumes) which can catch fire and burn with explosive force. Invisible vapor spreads easily and can be set on fire by many sources such as pilot lights, welding equipment, and electrical motors and switches. Fire hazard is greater as liquid temperature rises above 85F. The hydrocarbon solvent in this product may accumulate at flammable or explosive levels in the head space of storage containers. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do not taste or swallow. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not breathe vapor or fumes. Keep out of the reach of children.
General Handling Information: Avoid contaminating soil or releasing this material into sewage and drainage systems and bodies of water.
Static Hazard: Electrostatic charge may accumulate and create a hazardous condition when handling this material. To minimize this hazard, bonding and grounding may be necessary but may not, by themselves, be sufficient. Review all operations which have the potential of generating and accumulating an electrostatic charge and/or a flammable atmosphere (including tank and container filling, splash filling, tank cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading, filtering, mixing, agitation, and vacuum truck operations) and use appropriate mitigating procedures.
General Storage Information: DO NOT USE OR STORE near heat, sparks, flames, or hot surfaces . USE AND STORE ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED AREA. Keep container closed when not in use.
Disposal: From MSDS
Use material for its intended purpose or recycle if possible. This material, if it must be discarded, may meet the criteria of a hazardous waste as defined by US EPA under RCRA (40 CFR 261) or other State and local regulations. Measurement of
