SECTION 4.  HEALTH HAZARD

No adverse effects are expected if the product is handled in accordance with this safety Data Sheet and with the product label.

 

Symptoms of Exposure:  Acute and Chronic Effects

 

Ingestion:  Considered as an unlikely route of entry in commercial/industrial environments.

Part A Isocyanate

Low toxicity if swallowed.  Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation.

Part B Polyol

May cause irritation to the mouth, throat and stomach with effects including mucous buildup, irritation to the tongue and lips and pains in the stomach which may lead to nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

 

Eye contact:

Part A Isocyanate

May cause moderate eye irritation.  May cause very slight transient (temporary) corneal injury.

Part B. Polyol

Severely irritating to the eyes and may burn eye tissue. 

 

Skin contact: 

Part A Isocyanate

May cause slight to moderate irritation. May stain skin. May cause sensitization by skin contact.

PartB Polyol.

May cause irritation to the skin, with effects including redness and itchiness.

 

Inhalation: 

Part A Isocyanate

Harmful if inhaled. Vapor and aerosol can cause severe irritation of the respiratory tract with burning sensation of the nose and throat. High exposure can lead to inflammation of lung tissue and fluid in the lungs.  In hypersensitive people, very low concentrations may lead to asthmatic signs and symptoms.   Effects may be delayed.  May cause sensitization by inhalation.

Part B Polyol.

May cause irritation to the nose, throat and respiratory system with effects including dizziness, headache, and loss of co-ordination.

 

Systemic and other effects: 

Part A Isocyanate

Prolonged or repeated skin contact may lead to dermatitis.

Prolonged contact may cause severe eye irritation and some form of permanent eye damage may occur.

Prolonged or repeated exposure may lead to irreversible damage to health.

Chronic exposure by inhalation may result in a permanent decrease in lung function.

Prolonged or repeated contact with this substance will cause sensitization by inhalation.

Prolonged or repeated contact with this substance will cause sensitization by inhalation.

Part B Polyol.

The ingredients may cause adverse effects including sensitization.  Symptoms include itching rash and respiratory congestion.

 

Emergency & First Aid Procedures

 

Ingestion: 

Part A.Isocyanate

DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Seek medical attention immediately.  Give nothing by mouth.  Wash out the mouth with water ( do not swallow).

Part B Polyol

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

 

Eye contact:  Both components.

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:  Both components.

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:  Both components.

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

PVC or natural rubber gloves, full overalls, safety shoes

Respiratory Ensure adequate ventilation.  Wear organic vapor 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.

 

SECTION 6.  FIRE & EXPLOSION

Stability

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

 

Flammability

Products will support combustion if heated but will not spontaneously ignite or explode.

 

Hazardous Decomposition Products

On burning will emit toxic fumes of oxides of nitrogen, isocyanate vapors, hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

 

Hazardous Polymerization

Part A. Isocyanate can react with itself at temperature above 160C.

Reactions will not occur in absence of contact with reactive elements or unless the separately packed components are mixed in large quantities.  This will cause irreversible polymerization with considerable heat build-up.

 

Incompatibility

Avoid contact with water, strong acids, alcohols, amines, bases, alkalis, oxidizing materials, galvanized metals, and copper and its alloys.

 

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

Foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder.
