Toxicity and Irritation Data

LD(50) for ingestion (rat) N-methyl 2- pyrrolidone          3.6 gm per kgm                        

LD(50) for ingestion (rat) Aziridine                                 3.04  gm per kgm

LD50 dermal (rabbit) N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone                   8 gm per kgm

Inhalation                                                                      No effects

Negative in AMES test for mutagenicity.

AZIRIDINE.  There is evidence of genotoxicity and therefore is a possible animal carcinogen.

POLYURETHANE. EMULSION.  A study on  pregnant female rats on day 6-15 of gestation via dermal administration has shown that high doses produce embryo/foetotoxic effects in the presence of maternal toxicity (dermal dose 750 mgm/kgm body weight)

These particular data are not considered relevant to normal industrial use but emphasise the need for care in handling.

SECTION 4.  HEALTH HAZARD

Symptoms of Exposure:  Acute and Chronic Effects

No adverse health effects expected if the product is handled in accordance with this Safety Data Sheet and the product label.  Synptoms that may arise if the product is mishandled are:

ACUTE EFFECTS

Ingestion: 

Can result in irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, nausea, vomiting, and pain.  Considered as an unlikely route of entry in commercial/industrial environments.

 

Eye contact:

A severe eye irritant.  Contamination of the eyes can result in permanent injury.

 

Skin contact: 

Liquid may be irritating to the skin and may be capable of causing allergic skin reactions.  Repeated or prolonged contact may lead to dermatitic effects and may cause sensitisation in some individuals. 

 

Inhalation: 

The vapour is mildly irritating to the mucous membranes and respiratory tract.  The vapour pressure from these products is very low at ambient temperatures and is unlikely to cause exposure from normal handling.  Frequent or prolonged exposure can cause respiratory irritation and may cause sensitisation in some individuals.  Overexposure symptoms include headache, swelling and congestion of the eyes and sinuses

 

CHRONIC EFFECTS

No information available for the products.  Not classified as sensitisers or carcinogens by Worksafe Australia.

Emergency & First Aid Procedures

Ingestion:

DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.  If conscious give water to rinse out mouth and drink.  Provide liquid slowly but as much as casualty will drink.  Transport to hospital or doctor without delay. 

 

Eye contact: 

Immediately hold the eyes open and irrigate eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.  Ensure irrigation under eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.  Transport to doctor or hospital without delay.  Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel. 

 

Skin contact: 

Immediately remove all contaminated clothing including footwear.  Wash affected areas thoroughly with detergent hand cleaner and rinse with plenty of water.  Seek medical attention in event of irritation.

 

Inhalation: 

Remove to fresh air, lie patient down, keep warm and rested.  If breathing is shallow or has stopped, ensure clear airway and apply resuscitation.  Administer oxygen.  Transport to hospital or doctor.

 

Notes to physician:  Treat symptomatically.

SECTION 5.  PERSONAL PROTECTION & HANDLING

Protective Equipment

Eyes:                            Goggles or face shield

Hands/feet:                    Rubber gloves, full overalls, safety shoes

Respiratory:                   Ensure adequate ventilation.  Wear organic vapour    respirator or self contained breathing apparatus in enclosed areas.

Remove and wash all contaminated clothing and equipment.

 

Handling Procedures

Handle in well ventilated area.  Always observe conditions of good industrial hygiene and safe working practice.

 

If spraying the product avoid contact with overspray mists.  Wear full personal coveralls, a mask or respirator, and ensure good extractive ventilation to maintain air concentrations of components below quoted exposure standards.

SECTION 6.  FIRE & EXPLOSION

Stability

Stable for minimum 2 years at room temperature.  Excess heating over long periods will degrade ingredients.

 

Flammability

Liquid products will not support combustion.  Dry residues can burn if ignited

 

Hazardous Decomposition Products

On burning will emit toxic fumes of oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

 

Hazardous Polymerisation

Will not occur in absence of contact with reactive elements or unless the separately packed components are mixed in large quantities.  This may cause irreversible polymerization.

 

Incompatibility

Avoid contact with strong acids, alkalis, oxidising materials.

 

Fire Fighting

Toxic fumes will be evolved when this material is involved in a fire.  Fire fighters must wear full protective clothing and self contained breathing apparatus.

 

Extinguishing Media

Water, foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder.

 

SECTION 7.  STORAGE & TRANSPORT
