General P102 Keep out of reach of children
General P103 Read label before use
Prevention P262 Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing

Potential Health Effects

Eye Contact:Irritation on contact
Skin Contact:Prolonged exposure may cause skin irritation.
Skin Absorption:Irritation (Est. Demmal LD50 > 2000Mg./Kg)
Inhalation:May cause nausea, headache, dizziness and irritation of respiritory tract.
Ingestion:If significant quantity ingested, may dull senses (Oral LD50 > 5000)

Section 3 - Composition/Information on Ingredients

Component CAS # ENIECS REACH Reg. No. Amount
Acetone 67-64-1 <30%
Heptane 142-82-5 >69%
N,N-Dimethyl-p-toluidine 99-97-8 <1%

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
Skin Contact: Flush with plenty of soap and water for 15 minutes.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air immediately.
Ingestion: Do no induce vomiting. Seek medical attention.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Bronchitis, CNS disorders, allergies, nausea.

Section 5 - Firefighting Measures

Extinguishing Media: CO2, Foam, Dry chemical
Fire Fighting Procedures: Firefighters should wear self contained breathing gear and protective clothing.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Direct water jet will spread burning material. Water should not be used except as a fog to keep nearby containers cool. Combustion products are very toxic & highly irritating. Vapors form an explosive mixture in air.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

Steps to be Taken if Material is Released or Spilled: Permit only properly portected workers with skin and eye protection and breathing gear. Absorb small spills with absorbant material, or let evaporate in well ventilated area. Pump large spills into salvage tanks.
Personal Precautions:
Environmental Precautions:

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

General Handling: Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervouse systemdamage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmfull or fatal. Avoid spontaneous combustion of contaminated rags or other ignitable material. Keep out of reach of children.
Other Precautions:
Storage: Keep containers closed when not in use. Keep away from open flames and excessive heat.
