Section 3: Hazard Identification
Emergency
Overview
CAUTION: IRRITANT. Contains emulsified xylene. Do not allow eye contact or prolonged skin contact. FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY. Material is a white liquid.
Routes of Entry
Ingestion: Yes; Inhalation: Yes; Skin: Yes; Eye: Yes
Inhalation
May cause headache and dizziness. High vapor concentrations are irritating to the nose, throat and lungs and can cause systemic effects.
Ingestion
Ingestion is not a probable route of exposure. Harmful if swallowed.
Skin
Prolonged or repeated skin contact can cause irritation. Solvent can be absorbed through the skin.
Eye
Mildly irritating to eyes.
Medical Conditions
Aggravated by
Exposure
Medical conditions associated with target organs may be aggravated by exposure.
Carcinogenicity
IARC: Yes, 2B (vinyl acetate). See Section 2
NTP: No
OSHA: No

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined vinyl acetate to be carcinogenic in experimental animals. Available epidemiologic studies do not confirm an increased risk of cancer in exposed humans.

Reproductive Toxicity
None currently known.
Target Organs
Eyes, skin, repiratory system, central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, blood, liver, and kidneys
Section 4: First Aid Measures
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If difficulty persists seek medical attention.
Ingestion
Call poison control center immediately. Follow their specific instructions. Do not induce vomiting.
Skin
Wash with soap and water. Contact a physician if irritation develops or persists.
Eye
Hold eyelids apart and flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.

Section 11: Toxicological Information
This product has a low order of acute and chronic toxicity by all routes of exposure. A trace constituent, vinyl acetate, is reported by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), to cause tumors in experimental animals at high doses not considered relevant to worker exposures. Epidemiologic studies of exposed human populations do not indicate an increased risk of cancer in exposed humans.

Two year animal tests (inhalation) at 50, 200, and 600 ppm of vinyl acetate monomer have shown that some animals in the 600 ppm group developed tumors. There is no evidence of human carcinogenicity. Acute and chronic health effects are not expected as long as good industrial hygiene and safety precautions are followed.

Exposure may cause eye and skin irritation. Prolonged skin exposure may cause burning, drying, and cracking of the skin. Inhalation of vapor or mist at levels exceeding permissible exposure standards can cause irritation of the respiratory tract, including nose and throat irritation. Prolonged inhalation exposure in high levels can cause central nervous system depression resulting in dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, nausea, headache, and unconsciousness. Ingestion can cause gastrointestinal irritation including vomiting and diarrhea. Vomiting can cause aspiration into the lungs, causing pneumonitis.
Section 12: Ecological Information
