 REACTIVITY = 1 (slight)

3.2 Potential Health Effects

 

         Immediate Hazards

 
 INGESTION: No hazards known to company.
 INHALATION: May be harmful if inhaled. 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. 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 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

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

8.3 Exposure Guidelines
