======== SECTION IV - FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA ===========
FLASH POINT: 24 C METHOD USED: TCC
FLAMMABLE LIMITS IN AIR BY VOLUME- LOWER: 1.1 UPPER: 12.7
Foam, CO2, dry chemical, water fog.
SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PROCEDURES
Respiratory equipment should be worn to avoid inhalation of
concentrated vapours. Water should not be used except as a fog to
keep nearby containers cool.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
Handle as a flammable liquid. Vapours form an explosive mixture in
air between the upper and lower explosive limits, which, can be
ignited by many sources such as pilot lights, open flames, electrical
boxes and switches. Vapour may travel along the ground and flashback
along vapour trail may occur.

SKIN AND EYE CONTACT HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Eye Contact: May cause severe irritation, tearing, redness and
Skin Contact: May cause irritation.
SKIN ABSORPTION HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
May dry and defat skin causing cracks, irritation and dermatitis.
INGESTION HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE

HEALTH HAZARDS (ACUTE AND CHRONIC)
Acute health hazards are as listed above. No chronic health hazards.
SENSITIZING CAPABILITY: NONE KNOWN
CARCINOGENICITY: NTP CARCINOGEN:No IARC MONOGRAPHS:Yes OSHA
Ethylbenezene has been classified by the IARC as a Group 2B
substance on the basis of sufficient evidence for carcinogenicity in
laboratory animals but inadequate evidence for cancer in humans. In
a lifetime inhalation study, exposure to 250 mg/m3 titanium dioxide
dust resulted in the development of lung tumors in rats. These
tumors occurred only at dust levels that overwhelmed the animals'
lung clearance mechanisms and were different from common human lung
tumors in both type and location. The relevance of these findings to
humans is unknown. The International Agency for Research on Cancer
(IARC) has classified Titanium Dioxide as possibly carcinogenic to
humans (Group 2B) based on inadequate evidence of carcinogenicity in
humans and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental
TERATOGENICITY AND EMBRYOTOXICITY
High exposures to xylenes in some animal studies have been reported
to causehealth effects on the developing embryo/fetus. These effects
were often at levels toxic to the mother. The significance of these
findings to humans has not been determined.
TOXICOLOGICALLY SYNERGISTIC PRODUCTS
MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
Anesthesia, respiratory tract irritation, dermatitis, nausea,
========== SECTION VII - PREVENTIVE MEASURES ====================
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED
Eliminate ignition sources. Provide good ventilation or wear
appropriate breathing apparatus. Absorb small spills with non-
flammable absorbent. Contain spills by diking with non-flammable
absorbent. Notify environmental agency.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD
Reclaim or dispose of through a licensed waste disposal company
according to Federal,Provincial and local regulations.
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORING
Flammable. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area away from heat
and ignition sources. Keep containers closed when not in use. Avoid
breathing vapours or mist and prolonged or repeated contact with
skin. Launder contaminated clothing prior to re-use. Use good
personal hygiene. Product is a static accumulator. Transfer
equipment should be grounded or bonded.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: Smoking in the area where this material is used
must be strictly prohibited.
NIOSH approved for organic vapours and particulate matter.
General mechanical ventilation or local exhaust should be suitable
to keep vapour concentrations below TLV. Ventilation equipment must
be explosion proof. Make up air should be supplied to balance air
Solvent impervious e.g. Viton, Nitrile, PVC.
Chemical safety glasses, goggles or face shield.
OTHER PROTECTIVE CLOTHING OR EQUIPMENT
Use impermeable aprons and protective clothing whenever possible to
prevent skin contact.
Eye washes and safety showers in the workplace are recommended.
========= SECTION VIII - FIRST AID MEASURES ===============
INHALATION OVEREXPOSURE: Move person to fresh air. If breathing
stops, apply artificial respiration and seek immediate medical
EYE CONTACT: Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical
SKIN CONTACT: Wash thoroughly with mild soap and water.
INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting. Aspiration of solvents in this
product can cause inflammation of the lungs.
