V. Health Hazard Data
Effects of Accute Overexposure:
Eyes: Can cause irritation, redness, tearing, blurred vision.
Skin: Can cause irritation, defatting, dermatitis.
Inhalation: Can cause irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache, possible unconsciousness or asphyxiation.
Swallowing: Can cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, blindness or death.
Eyes: Flush with water lifting upper and lower lids. Get medical attention.
Skin: Wash exposed area with soap and water immediately.
Inhaled: Remove to fresh air. Give oxygen or artificial respiration as required. Get medical attention. DO NOT give stimulants. Epinephrine or Ephedrine may adversely affect the heart with fatal results.
Swallowed: DO NOT induce vomiting. Get medical attention.
Chronic Effects of Overexposure:
Reports have associated repeated and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
VI. Reactivity Data
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
Incompatibility (Avoid Contact With): Strong oxidizing agents, strong alkalies.
VII. Spill or Leak Procedures
Spill Procedures: Eliminate all ignition sources. Clean with absorbent materials and place in closed containers for waste disposal.
Waste Disposal: Consult Federal, State and Local disposal authorities for approved disposal procedures.
VIII. Special Protection and Precautions
Respiratory Protection: Approved organic vapor type respirator if TLV (or PEL) values are exceeded.
Ventilation: Provide ventilation to maintain safe exposure levels.
Protective Gloves: Wear resistant gloves such as: Neoprene rubber.
Eye Protection: Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations.
Other Protective Equipment: Wear impervious clothing if desired.
Comments: Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty. Since empty containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid and/or solid), all hazard precautions in this datasheet must be observed.
