Section 3: Hazard Identification
Note
Repeated and prolonged overexposure to the mixture of solvent(s) listed in Section 2 can result in systemic effects including permanent brain, nervous system, liver, and kidney damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful or fatal.
Emergency
Overview
Product is green, black, or clear color, medium thin liquid with a strong solvent odor. DANGER: EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE, VAPOR HARMFUL. CONTAINS PETROLEUM DISTILLATES AND TOLUENE. Vapors can cause flash fire. Vapors may ignite explosively. Prevent buildup of vapors by opening all windows and doors to create cross-ventilation. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Do not smoke. Extinguish all flames and pilot lights. Turn off stoves, heaters, and sparking electric motors. Keep away from all sources of ignition until all vapors are gone. Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapor. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Routes of Entry
Inhalation: Yes; Ingestion: Yes; Skin: Yes; Eye: Yes
Inhalation
Avoid breathing vapors or mist. Excessive inhalation of vapors may cause irritation of nose and throat, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, euphoria, loss of coordination, and disorientation. In poorly ventilated or confined spaces, may cause unconsciousness and asphyxiation may result.
Ingestion
Swallowing small amounts is not likely to cause harmful effects. Large amounts may be harmful, material can enter the lungs during swallowing or vomiting, resulting in lung inflammation and other injury.
Skin
Prolonged or repeated skin contact can cause defatting of the skin or irritation seen as redness, drying, or burning.
Eye
Substance may cause mild eye irritation.
Medical Conditions
Aggravated by
Exposure
Pre-existing neurological conditions, skin disorders, and respiratory disease.
Carcinogenicity
IARC: No; NTP: No; OSHA: No
Target Organs
Prolonged or repeated overexposure may cause eye, skin, respiratory system, central nervous system, and peripheral nervous system damage.
Section 4: First Aid Measures
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If difficulty persists, seek medical attention.
Ingestion
Call poison control center immediately. Follow their specific instructions. Do not induce vomiting. Material is an aspiration hazard. If unconscious, place on side with head down and seek medical attention.
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 5: Fire-Fighting Measures
Flammability Class
(OSHA)
IIB
Flash Point
-14°F; C.C.
Explosive Range
Lower explosive limit: 1.0%, Upper explosive limit: 7.0%

Vapors can travel back to the source of ignition. Flammable liquid. Can form explosive mixtures at temperatures at or above the flashpoint. Material is volatile and gives off vapors which may travel along the ground or be moved by ventilation and be ignited by pilot lights, electric motors, sparks, smoking, and other sources of ignition even far from the material handling area. Never use a welding or cutting torch on or near drums, even empty, because product can ignited explosively.
Extinguishing Media
Use regular foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical. Water may be ineffective, but can be used to keep fire-exposed containers cool until fire is out.
Hazardous Combustion
Products
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and various hydrocarbons may be released during combustion.
Fire-Fighting Procedures
Can burn in a fire, releasing toxic vapors. Firefighters should be equipped with self-contained breathing apparatus operated in positive pressure demand mode with appropriate turn out gear and chemical resistance protective equipment.
Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Containment Techniques
Small spill: Absorb liquids with absorbent material and transfer to a closed metal container. Keep away from drains.
Large spill: Eliminate all sources of ignition (flares, flames, pilot lights, electrical sparks). Ventilate area. People without protective equipment should be excluded from the area of the spill. Prevent spill from entering drains, sewers, streams, or other bodies of water. Stop spill at source. Dike area to contain spill. Absorb all absorbents and transfer to closed metal container.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Handling
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Use only in areas ventilated with enough air movement to remove vapors and prevent vapor buildup. Vapors can be easily ignited. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors. Avoid breathing of overspray adhesive during spray application. Keep container closed when not in use.
Storage
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store between +50°F and +100°F. Store large quantities in buildings designed and protected for storage of NFPA Class 2-B flammable materials.
Precautionary
Statement
KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Engineering Controls
Use an operating spray booth if at all possible. If not, provide other local exhaust to prevent vapor buildup. If adequate ventilation cannot be maintained, consult your local safety equipment dealer for an appropriate respirator for your application needs.
Other
Facilities storing or utilizing any chemical should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. To prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots. Launder clothing before reuse.
Respiratory
Protection
Use an operating spray booth if at all possible. If not, provide other local exhaust to prevent vapor buildup. Where exposure limits may be exceeded, select a NIOSH approved respirator with appropriate Protection Factor and cartridge for the specific contaminants. Follow requirements for respiratory protection in OSHA 1910.134.
Eye Protection
Chemical splash goggles (ANSI Z87.1 or approved equivalent) or face shield to prevent eye contact.
Skin Protection
Where skin contact can occur, wear impervious gloves.
