HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

HEALTH EFFECTS

No adverse health effects expected if the product is handled in accordance with this Safety

Data Sheet and the product label, if applicable. Symptoms that may arise if the product is

mishandled are:

ACUTE EFFECTS -

SWALLOWED: Swallowing can result in nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain,

convulsions, chemical burns, loss of consciousness and possible death.

EYE: Corrosive to eyes. Contact can cause corneal burns. Contamination of the eyes can

result in permanent injury.

SKIN: Corrosive to skin – may cause skin burns. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may

lead to allergic contact dermatitis. A skin sensitiser. A component of this material

(methanol) can be absorbed through the skin, however symptoms of poisoning via this

route are unlikely because of low absorption.

INHALED: Vapour is irritant to mucous membranes and respiratory tract. Inhalation can

result in headache, dizziness and possible nausea. CHRONIC EFFECTS Some long

term animal test data suggests a known carcinogen for formaldehyde contained in this

solution. This was found to occur at levels, which caused chronic tissue irritation and was

well above the exposure standard. These particular data are not considered relevant to

normal use because these high concentrations would not be voluntarily tolerated by

humans, but do emphasise the need for care in handling. Chronic exposure to methanol

from skin contact, inhalation and/or swallowing at concentrations greater than 1000ppm

can result in permanent blindness and central nervous system effects.

FIRST AID

SWALLOWED: If swallowed immediately rinse mouth with water. DO NOT INDUCE

VOMITING. Give water or milk to drink followed by a raw egg, if available. Seek immediate

medical assistance.

EYE: Immediately irrigate with copious quantities of water for at least 15 minutes. Eyelids to

be held open. Seek immediate medical assistance.

SKIN: Wash contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing

and wash before re-use. Can be absorbed through the skin with resultant toxic

effects. For skin burns, immediately flood burnt area with plenty of water and cover

with a clean dry dressing. Seek immediate medical assistance.

INHALED: Remove victim from exposure - avoid becoming a casualty. Remove

contaminated clothing and loosen remaining clothing. Allow patient to assume most

comfortable position and keep warm. Keep at rest until fully recovered. If breathing

laboured and patient cyanotic (blue) ensure airways are clear and have qualified

person give oxygen through a facemask. If breathing has stopped apply artificial

respiration at once. In event of cardiac arrest, apply external cardiac massage. Seek

immediate medical assistance.

ADVICE TO DOCTOR

Treat symptomatically. Can cause corneal burns. If exposure has been severe and

symptoms marked, observation in hospital for 48 hours should be considered due to

possibility of delayed pulmonary oedema.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE

EXPOSURE STANDARDS

No value assigned for this material by the National Occupational Health and Safety

Commission (Worksafe Australia)

Exposure standards for constituents are:

Formaldehyde:

TWA:

1.2mg/m (1ppm)

STEL: 2.5mg/m (2ppm)

Carcinogen Category: 2 – probable human carcinogen. There is sufficient evidence to provide a

strong presumption that human exposure may result in the development of cancer.

Sensitser – This substance can cause a specific immune response in some people. An affected

individual may subsequently react to exposure to minute levels of this substance. Odour Threshold

for Formaldehyde: 0.1 – 0.5ppm

Methanol:

TWA: 262mg/m (200ppm)

STEL: 328mg/m (250ppm)

Absorption through the skin may be a significant source of exposure.

Odour Threshold for Methanol: 2000ppm

Exposure standard (TWA) is the time-weighted average airborne concentration over an 8hour

working day for a five-day working week over an entire working life.

STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit): the average airborne concentration over a 15 minute period

which should not be exceeded at any time during a normal 8 hour working day.

According to current knowledge these concentrations should not cause adverse health effects nor

cause undue discomfort to nearly all workers.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

Ensure ventilation is adequate to maintain air concentrations below exposure standard. Use with local

exhaust ventilation or while wearing air supplied mask. Keep containers closed when not in use.

PERSONAL PROTECTION

Avoid skin and eye contact and inhalation of vapour. Wear protective overalls, splash apron, rubber

gloves and boots to prevent exposure to skin. For eye protection use chemical goggles or full

faceshield. Use with adequate ventilation. If inhalation risk exists wear air-supplied mask meeting

the requirements of AS1715 and AS1716. Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or

using the toilet.

FLAMMABILITY Combustible Liquid.

SAFE HANDLING INFORMATION

STORAGE AND TRANSPORT

Classified as a Class 8 Dangerous Goods according to the Australian Code for Transport of

Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail. Store and transport according to relevant regulations.

Store in a well-ventilated area. Store away from oxidising agents, acids, alkalis, metal salts and

foodstuff. Keep containers closed and check regularly for leaks.

Classified as C1 (COMBUSTIBLE LIQUID) for the purpose of storage and handling.

This material is a Scheduled Poison S6 and must be stored, maintained and used in accordance

with the relevant regulations.

SPILLS

Increase ventilation. Shut of all possible sources of ignition. Wear protective equipment to prevent

skin and eye contamination and inhalation of vapours or mists. Contain using sand or soil - prevent

run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand, vermiculite or other inert material).

Collect and seal in properly labelled drums for disposal. Neutralise the area with a strong solution

(up to 25% by weight) of sodium metabisulphite or 5% ammonia solution. Again use absorbent,

then collect and seal in properly labelled drums for disposal. Wash area down with excess water. If

contamination of sewers or waterways has occurred advise the local emergency services.

DISPOSAL

Refer to State Land Waste Management Authority. Decontamination and destruction of containers

should be considered.

FIRE/EXPLOSION HAZARDS

Combustible liquid. Vapour may form explosive mixtures with air. Heating may cause expansion or

decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers. Keep containers cool with water spray. Fire

fighters to wear self-contained breathing apparatus if risk of exposure to vapour or products of

combustion.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Water fog (if unavailable water spray), foam, dry agent (carbon dioxide,

dry chemical powder).

OTHER INFORMATION

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Avoid contaminating waterways.

For formaldehyde:

Formaldehyde has a relatively low toxicity to fish. 96hr LC50 values being higher than 10mg/L in all

cases, eg

Rainbow trout (fingerling) 96 hr LC50: 123mg/L

Algae and some invertebrates seem to be more susceptible to formaldehyde, however responses

differ widely.

Inhibits anaerobic sludge digestion at 100mg/L and aerobic degradation: 135 –175mg/L

For methanol:

Aquatic toxicity:

Crustacean (Daphnia): no effect at 10g/L, 48hr.

Fish (trout): LC50 (48hr): 8000mg/L

ThOD: 1.5mg/L 02

BOD5: 76% O2 of ThOD

TOXICITY

Reported fatal dose for humans: 60 – 90mls.

For Formaldehyde:

Oral LD50 (rat): 800 mg/kg

Inhalation LC50 (rat): 590 mg/m3

Low concentrations of formaldehyde may cause sensitisation by skin contact.

Formaldehyde vapours are irritant to mucous membranes and respiratory tract.

Animal studies have shown formaldehyde to cause carcinogenic effects. In particular chronic

inhalation studies in rats have shown the development of nasal cavity carcinomas at 6 and 15ppm.

These cancers developed at concentrations, which produced chronic tissue irritation and would not

be voluntarily tolerated by humans. Some epidemiological studies show an increased risk of various

types of cancer, however data are conflicting and no clear cut evidence of carcinogencity is

indicated. Some possible mutagenic effects have been reported for formaldehyde.

This material has been classified by the International Agency for Research on cancer (IARC) as a

Group 2A agent (The agent is probably carcinogenic to humans).

For Methanol:

Oral LD50(rat): 5628 mg/kg

Inhalation LC50 (rat): 64000ppm/4hr

Evidence indicates that repeated or prolonged exposure to methanol could result in visual

impairment and central nervous system effects.
