MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
SECTION 1. PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION
Hazardous according to the criteria of Worksafe Autralia.
SECTION 2. INGREDIENTS
SECTION 3. PHYSICAL & EXPOSURE DATA
Product Exposure Limits
TLV TWA triethylamine TWA 3 ppm STEL 5 ppm
No values have been assigned for other ingredients
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
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:
Can result in irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, nausea, vomiting, and pain. Considered as an unlikely route of entry in commercial/industrial environments.
A severe eye irritant. Contamination of the eyes can result in permanent injury.
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.
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
No information available for the products. Not classified as sensitisers or carcinogens by Worksafe Australia.
Emergency & First Aid Procedures
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
Stable for minimum 2 years at room temperature. Excess heating over long periods will degrade ingredients.
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.
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.
Avoid contact with strong acids, alkalis, oxidising materials.
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.
Water, foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder.
