Hazards Identification

Emergency Overview

DANGER! Extremely flammable liquid and vapor Vapors may cause flash fire or explosion Vapors canform an ignitable mixture with air Vapors can flow along surfaces to a distant ignition source and flash back. Do not smoke. Extinguish all flames and pilot lights, and turn off stoves, heaters, electric motors and other sources of ignition during use and until all vapors are gone. Keep container closed and away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Store away from caustics and oxidizers. May cause nausea, headaches, and dizziness. May cause eye, skin, nose, throat and respiratory tract irritation. Use only with adequate ventilation Prevent build-up of vapors by opening all windows and doors to a achieve cross-ventilation. May cause sensitization by inhalation and skin contact. Contents under pressure. Do not puncture can. Exposure to temperatures above 120 deg F may cause can to rupture. The primary adverse health effects of this product are related to the Polymeric lsocyanate (MDl) component. Therefore, adequate ventilation should be provided to avoid exceeding the exposure limits of these components. The likelihood of exceeding these limits are low due to the low concentration of vapor produced during normal use However, if used indoors, mechanical ventilation or exhaust should be provided during use and until product is cured This product has strong adhesive-like characteristics and will adhere aggressively to skin and other surfaces lf accidental contact occurs, follow the appropriate first-aid procedure described . MDl vapor can irritate the respiratory tract causing runny nose, sore throat, coughing and reduce lung function.

Potential Health Effects

Routes of Exposure: Eye Contact, Ingestion, Inhalation, Skin Contact

Eye Contact: Direct eye contact may cause irritation. Mist and vapors may cause eye irritation. Foam contact can cause physical damage due to adhesive character.

Skin Contact: May cause sensitization by skin contact. May cause localized irritation, reddening or swelling. Prolonged or repeated exposure may lead to sensitization and/or contact dermatitis. This product has strong adhesive-like characteristics and will adhere aggressively to skin and other surfaces. If accidental contact occurs, follow the appropriate first-aid procedure.

Inhalation: Vapors may be irritating to eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Inhalation of high concentrations may cause headache, nausea, and dizziness.

Ingestion: Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Chronic Health Effects: From SDS:

No information.
Carcinogenicity: No Information.
First Aid: Eye Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes until irritation subsides. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin Contact: Wash skin with soap and water for 15 minutes. Get medical aid if symptoms persist. Use a rag to remove excess foam from skin and remove contaminated clothing. Use of a solvent, such as acetone (nail polish remover) or mineral spirits, may help in removing uncured foam residue from clothing or other surfaces (avoid eye contact). Cured foam may be physically removed by persistent washing with soap and water. If irritation develops, use mild skin cream. If irritation persists, obtain medical attention.

Inhalation: If you experience difficulty in breathing, leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, get medical attention immediately.

Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Get medical attention immediately.
