SECTION 5 - HEALTH HAZARD DATA

PRIMARY ROUTES OF ENTRY: [ X ] INHALATION [ ] INGESTION [ X ] SKIN ABSORPTION [ ] EYE [ ] NOT HAZARDOUS

ACUTE EFFECTS:

Inhalation: Excessive inhalation of vapors can be harmful and may cause headache, dizziness, asphyxia, anesthetic effects and possible unconsciousness.

Eye Contact: Irritation

Skin Contact: Irritation due to defatting of skin.

Ingestion: Possible chemical pneumonitis if aspirated into lungs. Nausea.

CHRONIC EFFECTS:(Effects due to excessive exposure to the raw materials of this mixture) May cause liver abnormalities, kidney, spleen, lung or brain damage, cardiac abnormalities. Perchloroethylene has been shown to increase the rate of spontaneously occurring malignant tumors in certain laboratory rats and mice.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: May aggravate existing eye, skin, or upper respiratory conditions.

EMERGENCY FIRST AID PROCEDURES

Eye Contact: Flush with large amounts of cool running water for at least 15 minutes while holding upper and lower lids open. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin Contact: Wash with plenty of soap and water. If irritation persists seek medical attention.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, seek medical attention immediately. If breathing stops give artifical respiration.

Ingestion: If conscious, Drink large amounts of water. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Seek medical attention immediately. If unconscious, Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical attention immediately.

Note to Physician: Only administer Adrenaline after careful consideration following Trichloroethylene overexposure. Increased sensitivity of the heart to Adrenaline may be caused by overexposure to Trichloroethylene.

SECTION 6 - CONTROL AND PROTECTIVE MEASURES

Respiratory Protection (specify type): None needed for proper use in accordance with label directions. If ventilation is not adequate to reduce vapors below threshold limit value (TLV) levels, use a NIOSH-MSHA approved air-purifying respirator equipped with an organic vapor cartridge.

Protective Gloves: Use chemical resistant gloves if hand contact will be made.

Eye Protection: Wear chemical proof splash goggles or face shield with safety glasses for splash protection.

Ventilation Requirements: Local exhaust to keep TLV of Section II ingredients below acceptable limits.

Other Protective Clothing & Equipment: None

SECTION 7 - PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE

Steps To Be Taken If Material Is Spilled Or Released: Maintain local exhaust and adequate ventilation. NO SMOKING. Keep sparks, heat sources, and open flame far away from spill or leak. Cover with suitable absorbent material and sweep up. Wash area to prevent slipping. Dispose of soaked absorbent material in accordance with federal, state, and local laws.

Waste Disposal Methods: Consult federal, state and local authorities for approved procedures.

Precautions To Be Taken In Handling & Storage: Store in a cool, dry area away from heat or open flame. Do not store at temperatures above 120°F

Other Precautions &/or Special Hazards: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. For industrial and institutional use only.
