Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
INHALATION: Excessive inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea and/or headache. Overexposure can cause neurological damage. Mists or vapors from hot operations, can cause mental sluggishness pulmonary edema (accumulation of fluid in the lungs, signs and symptoms can be delayed for several hours) and bronchial pneumonia.
SKIN: Due to individual sensitization, this product can cause skin irritation upon
prolonged or repeated contact.
EYES: Trace amounts of amine and residual monomer vapors may be irritating to the eyes especially in poorly ventilated areas. Irritation in the form of
redness, tearing and/or blurred vision. Vapors can cause severe conjunctivitis.
INGESTION: Can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Aspiration of material into lungs can cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal.
humans (oral LD: 1.6 g/kg). Causes mental sluggishness followed by difficulty
in breathing and heart failure, kidney and brain damage, possibly death.
Practically non-toxic to animals (or LD50 rats= 8.5 g/kg).
Health Conditions Aggravated By Exposure
Effects of repeated overexposure. No evidence of adverse effects from
available information.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposures to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling contents may be harmful or fatal.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
TITANIUM DIOXIDE: In an inhalation study, E.I. DuPont's Haskel Toxicology Laboratory found evidence of lung cancer (malignant tumors) in 1 out of 77 male rats and 13 out of 74 female rats after they were exposed to 250 mg/m3 titanium dioxide respirable dust for a two year period. The exposure level of 250 mg/m3 is approximately 50 times that permitted in an occupational environment.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) conducted a feeding study in rats and
mice in which either 25,000 or 50,000 parts per million titanium dioxide was
given in their diets for two years. Under the conditions of the NCI test,
titanium dioxide didn't cause cancer by the oral route.
This product contains Crystalline Silica (CS) which is considered a hazard by
inhalation. The International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC) has
classified CS as probably carcinogenic for humans (2A). This classification is based on the findings of laboratory animal studies that were considered
sufficient and data from epidemiological studies that were considered limited
for carcinogenicity. CS can also cause silicosis, a noncancerous lung
disease. CS has not been classified as a carcinogen by OSHA or NTP. Pigment
dust would not normally be encountered when handling a packaged paint product containing pre-wetted pigment. Proper respiratory protection should be worn when sanding a dried paint film due to the presence of CS.
First Aid: From MSDS
EYE: If this product comes in contact with the eyes, flush with large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower lids occasionally.
SKIN: Thoroughly wash exposed area with soap and large quantities of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.
INGESTION: Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water to dilute. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Consult a physician or poison control center immediately. Treat symptomatically.
INHALATION: Individual may experience dizziness or lightheadedness when working in areas of high vapor concentrations. Victim should seek air free of vapors. If breathing stops, begin artificial respiration and seek immediate medical attention.
