STATEMENTS OF HAZARD: WARNING: Combustible liquid. CAUTION: High vapor concentrations may cause narcosis. May cause skin and eye irritation. Vapors may irritate the respiratory tract. Harmful if absorbed through the skin, swallowed, or inhaled. CHRONIC HAZARD WARNING: DANGER: CONTAINS MDA CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH MAY CAUSE CANCER; LIVER TOXIN Risk of cancer and liver toxicity depends on the duration and level of exposure. PRIMARY ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: SKIN CONTACT-yes INHALATION-yes INGESTION-no CARCINOGEN LISTINGS BY OSHA, NTP OR IARC: MDA: OSHA-yes NTP-yes IARC-yes Styrene: OSHA-no NTP-no IARC-yes POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS: Eye contact may cause moderate irritation with corneal injury. Vapors may irritate the eyes, causing tears. Excessive vapor concentrations will irritate the upper respiratory tract and may cause narcosis. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause skin irritation, possible burns, and drying or flaking of the skin. Overexposure to this product can cause fever, chills, loss of appetite, vomiting and jaundice. May stain skin. Harmful amounts of this material can be absorbed through the skin. This material contains 4,4'-Methylenedianiline (MDA) which may cause cancer and is a liver toxin. Risk of cancer depends on the length and level of exposure. In addition, long-term (chronic) exposure may result in damage to the liver, kidneys, blood, spleen, thyroid and eyes. Chronic overexposure to styrene may affect the central nervous system. SECTION 4 -- FIRST AID MEASURES EYES: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of (preferably lukewarm) water for at least 15 minutes, keeping the eyelids open all the time. Seek immediate medical attention. SKIN CONTACT: Immediately wash skin with soap and plenty of water. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use and destroy contaminated shoes. INHALATION: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention. INGESTION: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING! Call a physician immediately. NOTE: In all cases, a physician should be consulted. People exposed to MDA will probably need medical surveillance. SECTION 5 -- FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES FLASHPOINT & METHOD OF DETERMINATION- 110 F PMCC MEANS OF EXTINCTION: Use water spray, dry chemical or CO2 to extinguish fires. Use water to keep containers cool. SPECIAL FIRE HAZARDS: Since vapors are exceedingly irritating when inhaled, a self-contained, positive-pressure breathing apparatus should be available to firemen. SECTION 6 -- ACCIDENTAL RELEASE STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: In case of spill, contain with a suitable diking material. In addition to the protective equipment listed in Section 8, wear impermeable boots. Ventilate the area thoroughly. Keep all unnecessary people away. Spilled material should be absorbed in sawdust, sand or other absorbant. Place into open-topped containers and cover loosely; store for at least 12 hours before sealing the container. SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing vapor. Keep the containers closed. Keep material away from heat, sparks and open flames. If used indoors, use mechanical exhaust ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Consult Section 8 for personal protection/engineering controls. Store in a cool, dry area in tightly closed, grounded containers. Avoid moisture contamination. SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION EXPOSURE CONTROLS: The level of engineering control depends on how this material is processed. Selection of specific personal protective equipment will depend on the operation. VENTILATION: Use exhaust ventilation to keep airborne levels below OSHA-recommended exposure limits. Do not use this product in a poorly ventilated area. Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent oxygen deficiency and concentration of vapors, which could lead to life-threatening narcosis. PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Wear protective clothing that is impervious to this product. Selection of gloves, boots, apron or full-body suit will depend on the operation. EYE PROTECTION: Wear chemical splash-proof goggles or a face shield. Vapor resistant goggles are necessary if contact lenses are worn by the employee. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: If the airborne concentration of MDA is less than or equal to 10 times the PEL, wear a half-mask respirator with a combination organic vapor/HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate in Air filter) cartridge. If the airborne concentration is less than or equal to 50 times the MDA PEL, wear a full facepiece respirator with a HEPA cartridge or canister. A full facepiece powered air-purifying respirator with HEPA cartridges is required when the airborne concentration is less than or equal to 1000 times the PEL of MDA. Wear either a self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece in positive pressure mode OR a full facepiece positive pressure Demand supplied air respirator with auxiliary self-contained air supply if the airborne concentration of MDA is unknown. GENERAL HYGIENE RECOMMENDATIONS: Before eating, drinking, smoking or using toilet facilities, wash face and hands thoroughly with soap and water. If significant amounts of this material get on work clothes, the employee should shower immediately and the clothing should be laundered before it is worn again. Any employee who has been exposed to MDA at or above the action level (5 ppb) for 30 or more days a year, or who has had dermal exposure to MDA for 15 or more days a year, or who shows signs of dermal exposure (stained skin) must see a doctor for medical surveillance. NOTE: any clothing that has been contaminated with MDA must be laundered before it is worn again. Destroy contaminated leather and absorbant shoes. Work clothing CANNOT be taken home. SPECIAL ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS: Consult the OSHA standard 29 CFR parts 1910 and 1926 (Occupational Exposure to 4,4'Methylenedianiline) for more information on whether other engineering controls are needed. Since this product is combustible, be sure to isolate, vent, drain, wash and purge equipment (systems) before maintenance or repair. Remove all ignition sources. Check atmosphere for explosiveness and oxygen deficiencies HMIS RATING: Health: 3 Flammability: 2 Reactivity: 0 PERSONAL PROTECTION GUIDELINES (Refer to the EXPOSURE CONTROLS): HMIS CODE J-Splash Goggles, Gloves, Synthetic Apron and Dust & Organic Vapor Respirator.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION Toxicological information on components of this product are as follows: 4,4'Methylenedianiline (MDA) has an oral LD50 of 250-347 mg/kg (rat) and 264 mg/kg (mouse). This material is harmful if absorbed through the skin. Repeated dermal exposure to MDA may cause allergic skin reactions and liver damage. MDA caused liver tumors in mice and thyroid cancer in rats and mice during laboratory tests. Styrene has an oral LD50 (rat) of 5000 mg/kg. If styrene liquid is aspirated into the lungs, it may be rapidly absorbed through the lungs and cause injury to other body systems. Styrene is reported to cause hearing loss in laboratory animals upon exposure to high concentrations (16 times the TLV). The relevance of this to humans is unknown. Chronic overexposure to styrene may cause central nervous system, liver and kidney effects and respiratory or eye irritation. Benzyl alcohol has AN oral LD50 (rat) of 1230 mg/kg. Prolonged skin contact may cause defatting of the skin. Inhalation of vapors may cause headache, vertigo, nausea, and vomiting. Central nervous system depression may also occur. SECTION 12 - ecological INFORMATION No ecological data is available.
