3.2 Potential Health Effects

 

·         Immediate Hazards

 
     INGESTION:   No hazards known to company.
     INHALATION:  Not expected to be harmful under normal conditions of
                  use.  However, if allowed to become airborne, may cause
                  irritation of nose, throat and lungs.

     material has not been listed by NTP, classified by IARC nor regulated
     by OSHA as a carcinogen.

4. First Aid Measures

 
     INGESTION:   If accidentally swallowed, dilute by drinking large
                  quantities of water.  Immediately contact poison control
                  center or hospital emergency room for any other
                  additional treatment directions.
     INHALATION:  Remove to fresh air.
     EYES:        Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water.  Call a
                  physician if irritation persists.

     burn.
     In case of fire, water should be used to keep fire-exposed
     containers cool.

6. Accidental Release Measures

 
     Sweep (scoop) up and remove to a chemical disposal area.  Prevent
     entry into natural bodies of water.

7. Handling and Storage

 

7.1 Handling

 
     Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
     practices.  These practices include avoiding unnecessary exposure and
     removal of the material from eyes, skin and clothing.

7.2 Storage

 
     Keep from freezing.
     Store in a cool, dry place.
     Keep containers tightly closed.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

 

8.1 Exposure Controls

 
     If airborne contaminants are generated when the material is heated or
     handled, sufficient ventilation in volume and air flow patterns should
     be provided to keep air contaminant concentration levels below
     acceptable criteria.

8.2 Personal Protection

 
     No special protection necessary.
