ll HEALTH HAZARD DATA

Health Effects:

No specific data is available for the product for chronic exposure symptoms. The

ingredients are not listed as carcinogenic in Worksafe’s document “Exposure Standards

for Atmospheric Contaminants in the Occupational Environment” (May 1995), nor in

NOHSC’s “List of Designated Hazardous Substances” (April 1999).

Acute Effects:

Swallowed:

Data suggests that this product should present no significant problems to typical persons

in normal use.

Eye:

This product is mildly irritating to the eyes. It is likely to cause mild discomfort such as

watering and redness of the eyes. However, this should quickly disappear once exposure

is over.

Skin:

This product is mildly irritating to skin. However, it is unlikely to cause more than minor

discomfort or effects such as itchiness, occasional small blisters or slight skin reddening.

Inhalation:

Data suggests that this product should present no significant problems to typical persons

in normal use.

First Aid:

If poisoning occurs, contact a Doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone 13 1126 from

anywhere in Australia. If possible have this MSDS or product label with you.

Swallowed:

If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Wash mouth with water and give a glass of water

to drink.

Self Injection:

Accidental self injection may produce tranquilisation and other central nervous system

effects. In such instances, seek medical advice immediately.

Eyes:

If product gets in eyes, wash material from them with running water. If they begin watering

or reddening, take special care in washing thoroughly.

Skin:

If product gets on skin, thoroughly wash contacted areas. No further measures should

normally be required unless irritation is noticed. If irritation persists, seek medical

attention.

Inhalation:

No first aid measures normally required. However, if vapours or mists have been inhaled,

and irritation has developed, remove to fresh air and observe until recovered. If irritation

becomes painful or persists more than about 30 minutes, seek medical advice.

Advice to Doctor:

Treat symptomatically. Note the nature of this product.

lll PRECAUTIONS FOR USE

Exposure Standards:

A time weighted average (TWA) concentration for an 8 hour day, and 5 day week has not

been established by Worksafe Australia for any of the major ingredients in this product.

There is a blanket limit of 10mg/m

for dusts or mists when limits have not otherwise been

established. The nature of this product makes it unlikely that this level will be approached

in normal use.

Engineering Controls:

In industrial situations, concentration values below the TWA value should be maintained.

Values may be reduced by process modification, use of local exhaust ventilation,

capturing substances at the source, or other methods. If you believe air borne

concentrations of mists, dusts or vapours are high, you are advised to modify the process

or environment to reduce the problem.

Personal Protection:

The following instructions are meant for people coming into frequent and lengthy contact

with this product. For occasional use, take precautions suitable for the conditions under

which the product is being used.

Respiratory Protection:

It is usually safe to not use a dust mask or respirator protection on account of this product.

However, if the product is being used in dusty or confined conditions, use of a mask or

respirator may be preferred. For help in selecting suitable equipment, consult AS/NZS

1715.
