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, overexposure may cause central nervous
 system depression. Also, if allowed to become airborne,
 may cause irritation of nose, throat and lungs.
 SKIN: May cause irritation on prolonged or repeated contact.
 EYES: Causes irritation.
 Methyl Ethyl Ketone 78-93-3 
Can cause central nervous system depression. Signs and symptoms may
 include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, unconsciousness and
 asphyxiation. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged
 occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and
 nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately
 concentrating and inhaling the contents may lead to addiction and may
 be harmful or fatal.
 n-Propyl Acetate 109-60-4 
Can cause central nervous system depression. Signs and symptoms may
 include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, unconsciousness and
 even asphyxiation.
 Light Aliphatic Solvent Naphtha (petroleum) 64742-89-8 
Can cause central nervous system depression. Signs and symptoms may
 include headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, unconsciousness and
 even asphyxiation.

         Delayed Hazards

 
 Methyl Ethyl Ketone 78-93-3 
Suspect reproductive hazard. May cause reproductive disorders
 based on animal data.
 Methyl ethyl ketone may potentiate (shorten the time of onset)
 peripheral neuropathy caused by methyl n-butyl ketone or n-hexane.
 Methyl ethyl ketone by itself has not been shown to cause peripheral
 neuropathy.
 -- See Footnote C.
 n-Propyl Acetate 109-60-4 
May cause liver damage based on animal data.
 -- See Footnote C.
 Footnote C: As of the date of issuance of this document, this
 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.
 SKIN: In case of irritation, flush with water.
 EYES: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at
 least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held apart during
 irrigation to insure water contact with entire surface of
 eyes and lids. Call a physician.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

 
 Autoignition Temperature Not available
 Upper/Lower Flammable Limits Not available
 Up/Lower Explosive Limits, % by Vol 10/0.9
 Flash Point > -7 deg C
 FLAMMABLE.
 Keep liquid and vapor away from heat, sparks, flame and other ignition
 sources including, but not limited to, pilot lights, heaters,
 cigarettes, electric motors and static discharge. Vapor is heavier
 than air and may settle in low places or travel outward to a source of
 ignition and flashback.
 In case of fire, use water spray, dry chemical, foam or CO2. Use
 water to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

6. Accidental Release Measures

 
 Eliminate all ignition sources. 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.
 Wash thoroughly after handling. Always use appropriate Personal
 Protective Equipment (PPE).
 INHALATION: Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of vapor.
 SKIN: Persons with sensitive skin should avoid prolonged,
 continuous contact with skin. If irritation develops, discontinue
 use.
 EYES: Avoid contact with eyes.

7.2 Storage

 
 Store in a cool, dry place.
 Keep containers tightly closed.
 Keep away from heat, sparks, flame and other ignition sources.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

 

8.1 Exposure Controls

 
 ENGINEERING CONTROLS: The following exposure control techniques may
 be used to effectively minimize employee exposure: local exhaust
 ventilation, enclosed system design, process isolation and remote
 control in combination with appropriate use of personal protective
 equipment and prudent work practices. These techniques may not
 necessarily address all issues pertaining to your operations. We,
 therefore, recommend that you consult with experts of your choice to
 determine whether or not your programs are adequate.
 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

 
 Where air contaminants can exceed acceptable criteria, use NIOSH/MSHA
 approved respiratory protection equipment. Respirators should be
 selected based on the form and concentration of contaminants in air
 in accordance with OSHA laws and regulations or other applicable
 standards or guidelines, including ANSI standards regarding
 respiratory protection.
