3.2 Potential Health Effects



  • Immediate Hazards
     INGESTION:   No hazards known to company.
     INHALATION:  May be harmful if inhaled.  Liquid or vapor may cause
                  irritation of nose, throat and lungs.
     SKIN:        Bonds skin instantly.  Causes irritation.
     EYES:        Bonds eyelids instantly.  Causes irritation.


  • Delayed Hazards
     None of the components present in this product at concentrations equal
     to or greater than 0.1% have 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:  If inhaled, remove to fresh air.  If not breathing,
                  give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth.
                  Call a physician.
     SKIN:        If skin bonding occurs, soak in nail polish remover
                  or acetone and carefully peel or roll skin apart (do not
                  pull).
     EYES:        If eye contact occurs, hold eyelid open and rinse
                  thoroughly but gently with only water for 15 minutes and
                  GET MEDICAL ATTENTION.  Do not use any solvents to
                  flush the eye and its surroundings.  Liquid glue will
                  sting eye temporarily.  Solidified glue may irritate eye
                  like a grain of sand and should be treated by an eye
                  doctor.


5. Fire Fighting Measures

     Autoignition Temperature            485 deg C
     Upper/Lower Flammable Limits        Not available
     Up/Lower Explosive Limits, % by Vol Not available
     Flash Point                         83 deg C (CC)
     COMBUSTIBLE.
     Keep away from heat and flame.
     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.  Soak up with absorbent material 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 breathing vapor.  Use with adequate
                  ventilation.
     SKIN:  Avoid contact with skin and clothing.
     EYES:  Avoid contact with eyes.


7.2 Storage

     Keep away from amines.
     Store in cool, dry area away from sun and heat.
     Keep containers tightly closed.
     Exposure to small amounts of moisture, even moisture in air, causes
     polymerization and renders the product unusable.
     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

     Use goggles if contact is likely.  Wear impervious gloves as required
     to prevent skin contact.
