SECTION 4. HEALTH HAZARD
Symptoms of Exposure: Acute and Chronic Effects
Strong burning sensation, possible vomiting. Can result in irritation of the gastrointestinal tract and mucous membranes. Considered as an unlikely route of entry in commercial/industrial environments.
The amine hardener component may be severely irritating to the eyes and may burn eye tissue. High concentrations of vapour may cause irritation.
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.
Systemic and other effects:
The ingredients may cause adverse effects including sensitisation. Symptoms include itching rash and respiratory congestion.
Emergency & First Aid Procedures
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.
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.
Handle in well ventilated area. Always observe conditions of good industrial hygiene and safe working practice.
SECTION 6. FIRE & EXPLOSION
Stable for minimum 2 years at room temperature. Excess heating over long periods will degrade ingredients. .
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, 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 will cause irreversible polymerization with considerable heat build-up.
Avoid contact with water, 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.
Foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder.
