Section 3: Hazard Identification
Emergency
Overview
KEEP FROM REACH OF CHILDREN. Do not puncture, incinerate, or place aerosol product containers in compactors. Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied because containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid). All hazard precautions given must be observed. Do not flame-cut, braze, or use welding torch. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating or inhaling this product may be harmful or fatal.
Inhalation
Excessive inhalation of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, nausea, headache, possible unconsciousness, and even asphyxiation. Overexposure may cause damage to the nervous system.
Ingestion
No information
Skin
Prolonged or repeated contact can cause moderate irritation, defatting, dermatitis.
Eye
Can cause severe eye irritation, redness, tearing, blurred vision.
Chronic Hazards
Overexposure to this material (or its components) has apparently been found to cause the following effects in laboratory animals: kidney damage, eye damage, liver damage, lung damage, nasal damage, nervous system damage, and testis damage. Overexposure to this material (or its components) has apparently been found to cause the following effects in humans: visual impairment, central nervous system effects.
Primary Route(s)
of Entry
Skin contact, skin absorption, inhalation, eye contact
Section 4: First Aid Measures
Eye Contact
Flush with large amounts of water, lifting upper and lower lids occasionally, get medical attention.
Skin Contact
Thoroughly wash exposed area with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. Launder contaminated clothing before re-use. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Mineral oil, baby oil, makeup remover, mineral spirits, or other mild solvent may be used to remove the sticky resin residue left by the adhesive.
Inhalation
Remove individual to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Give artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. Keep person warm and quiet. Get medical attention.
Ingestion
Do not induce vomiting. Give two glasses of water if conscious. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get immediate medical attention.
Section 5: Fire-Fighting Measures
Extinguishing Media
Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, or water fog when fighting fires involving this product.
Hazardous Combustion
Products
Vapors are heavier then air and travel along the ground or may be moved by ventilation and ignited by ignition sources at locations distant from material handling point. For aerosol products — exposure to temperatures over 130°F may cause containers to burst releasing highly flammable gas.
Fire-Fighting Procedures
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus with a full face piece operated in pressure-demand or other positive pressure mode when fighting fires. Keep fire-exposed containers cool with water fog.
Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Containment Techniques
Eliminate sources of ignition and ventilate area. Persons not properly equipped should be excluded from area. Stop spill at source — prevent spreading. Avoid inhalation of vapors. Avoid skin contact with liquid. Soak up absorbent material and place into proper container for disposal. Use non-sparking scoops for flammable materials. Clean walking surfaces thoroughly to reduce slipping hazard.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Handling
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied, since containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid). All hazard precautions given must be observed. Do not flame cut, braze, or use welding torch on containers. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the vapors from this product may be harmful or fatal.
Storage
Do not store above 120°F. Do not store in direct sunlight. Keep away from heat sources, open flame, pilot lights, sparks, and other sources of ignition.

International Regulations
Canadian WHMIS: This MSDS has been prepared in compliance with Controlled Product Regulations except for use of the 16 headings.
Canadian WHMIS Class: No information available.

Hexane is a mixture of n-hexane and other compounds all falling under the general chemical name light hydrotreated distillate CAS-68410-97-9. The n-hexane content of our hexane is 60 to 70 percent. On June 30, 1993 the OSHA Z-1-A table was revoked and OSHA reverted back to their prior exposure limits. The values on this MSDS reflect the roll back to the prior values. Some states may continue to enforce the 1993 limits. On June 16, 1995 EPA announced in a final rule that acetone would no longer be considered a VOC for air attainment standards (it is now an exempt compound). The VOC calculations on this MSDS are based on acetone being an exempt compound. The June 16 rule also removed acetone from the list of SARA 313 reportable chemicals.
Section 16: Other Information
Disclaimer
The information contained on this MSDS is been checked and should be accurate. However, it is the responsibility of the user to comply with all Federal, State, and Local laws and regulations. The environmental information and hazardous materials identification system have been included by McGill AirSeal LLC in order to provide additional health and hazard classification information. The ratings recommended are based upon the criteria supplied by the developers of these rating systems, together with McGill AirSeal LLC's interpretation of the available data. Proper personal protective equipment varies widely with conditions of use and anticipated exposure. We recommend that a supervisor or other qualified person determine proper PPE for intended use.
