SECTION 6 - HEALTH HAZARD DATA

Threshold limit value (TLV) None established. See Section 2 for TLV’s of Hazardous Ingredients in this product.
Permissible exposure level (PEL) None established. See Section 2 for PEL’s of Hazardous Ingredients in this product.
Primary route(s) of exposure Skin and eye contact. Inhalation of vapors and mists.
Eye contact Contact with ocular tissues can cause mild to moderate irritation.
Skin contact Skin irritation can result, following prolonged or repeated contact.
Ingestion The oral LD50 of DPM for rats is 5.4 mL/Kg of body weight. Amounts ingested incidental to handling are not likely to cause injury.
Inhalation Can be irritating to mucous membranes, especially following prolonged exposure to mists and/or vapors. Inhalation of higher concentrations may cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Chronic effects of exposure Unnecessary exposure to this product or any chemical should be avoided.
Medical conditions generally aggravated by exposure Medical conditions aggravated by overexposure to this product have not been established.

 

SECTION 7 - EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES

Eye contact Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelids open during this flushing with water. Seek immediate medical attention.

SECTION 7 - EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES - Continued

Skin contact Immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water, then flush with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and do not reuse before washing. Call a physician.
Ingestion Call a physician. Unless otherwise advised by a physician, induce vomiting by giving syrup of Ipecac followed by two glasses of water or by sticking finger down throat. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person. GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Inhalation Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, administer artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Note to physician (antidotes) No specific antidote is known. Therapy is directed at preventing absorption. Administering to the symptoms as they occur, and providing supportive therapy.

SECTION 9 - PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT INFORMATION

Respiratory protection Use NIOSH/NSHA approved dust/mist filter respirator for routine work purposes when exposure to dusts or mists exceed the permissible exposure level (PEL). The respirator use limitations made by NIOSH-NHSA or the manufacturer must be observed. Respiratory protection programs must be in accordance with 20 CFR 1910.134.
Ventilation Use ventilation adequate to keep exposures to hazardous ingredients below their Threshold Limit Values (TLV) or Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL) (See Section 2). Local exhaust should be sufficient to maintain dust and mist levels below PEL.
Eye protection Chemical splash goggles if eye contact is likely.
Protective gloves Impervious gloves (rubber, nitrile or neoprene).
Other protective equipment Appropriate protective clothing if working with concentrated products. Products at use dilution may present less risk but protective clothing should still be worn.
 

SECTION 10 - ENVIRONMENTAL AND DISPOSAL INFORMATION

Material spill or release Steps to be taken: Stop discharge and contain spill or contaminated material using dike barrier or absorbent. Recover by pumping material into suitable DOT approved waste containers for further handling. Do not flush in stream or other bodies of water. KEEP OUT OF SEWERS, STORM DRAINS, WASTE WATER AND SOIL.
Waste disposal method Dispose of contaminated material in accordance with all Federal, State and Local regulations. Disposal methods:

1. Recycle if feasible

2. Treatment at industrial or liquid waste facility.
