VIII. Health Hazard Data
Primary Route(S) of Entry: Inhalation, Ingestion and Direct Dermal Exposure.
Target Organs: Upper respiratory tract, skin and eyes.
Effects of Overexposure: Skin and Eyes: Excessive skin contact may cause drying and cracking of the skin, defatting of tissue, and result in dermatitis. Contact with eyes may cause irritation.
Inhalation: VM&P Naphtha may cause irritation of respiratory tract, coughing, and CNS effects such as headache, dizziness, drowsiness or nausea.
Carcinogenicity: NTP: No; IARC
Monographs: No; OSHA
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Any condition generally aggravated by solvents, including preexisting upper respiratory and lung disease such as, but not limited to bronchitis, emphysema and asthma. Existing skin conditions.
First Aid Procedures: Skin and Eyes: Flush any eye contact with plenty of water. Additionally with skin contact, wash with soap and water. Refer to physician if irritation or symptoms persist.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air if exposed to excess concentrations of vapor. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Call a Poison Control Center or Physician for guidance.
IX. Reactivity Data
Incompatibility: Strong oxidizing agents.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Carbon Monoxide, carbon dioxide and other toxic vapors and gases that are common to thermal degradation of organic compounds.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
X. Spill or Leak Procedures
Steps to be take if material is released or spilled: Ventilate area of spill or release. Contain spill, preventing it from entering sewer lines or waterways. Use absorbent to assist with the pick-up of material. Scrape up product and place into container. Residual of product, while still wet, can be cleaned up with warm soapy water.
Waste Disposal Method of container and any unused contents in accordance with Federal, State and Local Waste Disposal Regulations. Do not flush unused contents or residue down drains. Do not reuse container.
XI. Special Handling and Use Information
Ventilation: Use natural cross-ventilation, local (mechanical) pick-up, and/or general area (mechanical) ventilation to prevent and accumulation of solvent vapors, keeping in mind that the ventilation pattern mush remove the heavier-than-air solvent vapors from the lower levels of the work spaces. The ventilation should be sufficient to keep the solvent vapor concentration below the TLV.
Respiratory Protection: During normal end-product use, cotton or loop pile gloves and spectacle-type safety glasses are recommended to prevent contact with this mastic product.
XII. Special Precautions
Precautions To Be Taken in Handling and Storage: Store in an area suitable for combustible mixtures. Recommended storage temperature is below 90 degrees F.
Other Precautions: Vapors are heavier-than-air. Use precautions that are common with the safe handling of combustible liquids.
Work Site Environment: Initially there may be a potential adverse impact on indoor air quality within the general work area during the installation process. Therefore you should advise the building manager or other appropriate person that it will be necessary to establish and maintain adequate ventilation of the work area, without causing the entry of contaminants to other parts of building; and persons who are sensitive to odors and/or chemicals should be advised to avoid the work area during this process.
