STATEMENTS OF HAZARD: May cause severe eye and skin irritation. Contains a skin sensistivity CHRONIC HAZARD WARNING: Prolonged skin contact may cause chemical sensitization and allergic skin reactions (dermatitis). PRIMARY ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: SKIN CONTACT-yes INHALATION-yes INGESTION-no CARCINOGEN LISTINGS BY OSHA, NTP OR IARC: NO SPECIFIC LISTINGS Potential Health Effects: Eye contact causes severe irritation and pain. Excessive exposure may cause conjunctivitis, corneal damage, and other damage. Skin contact is irritating. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause rash, irritation, possible corrosion, and may result in dermatitis. Skin or eye contact with heated material may cause thermal burns. Heating this material may generate vapors that could cause headaches, nausea, dizziness and respiratory irritation. This product is not particularly toxic by ingestion. Swallowing large amounts of this material may result in irritation to the mouth and throat, nausea, abdominal discomfort, and diarrhea. Medical conditions aggravated by overexposure to this product include eczema, allergy and other skin conditions. 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: If swallowed, get medical attention immediately. Induce vomiting ONLY upon the advice of a physician. SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES FLASHPOINT & METHOD OF DETERMINATION: 470 F Tagliabue Closed Cup MEANS OF EXTINCTION: Use water spray, dry chemical or CO 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 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 absorbant 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, well ventilated area in tightly closed 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. If handled indoors, provide local exhaust and mechanical ventilation. 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: Wear a NIOSH-approved organic vapor respirator when this product is heated or where there is insufficient ventilation. 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. SPECIAL ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS: HMIS RATING: Health: 1 Flammability: 1 Reactivity: 0 PERSONAL PROTECTION GUIDELINES ( Refer to EXPOSURE CONTROLS): ~o Ine ~ UK~ ~NlK~L~): HMIS CODE B-Safety Glasses and Gloves.

Avoid contact strong acids or bases. Avoid strong oxidizers . HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION Epoxy resins decompose into aldehydes, acids, carbon PRODUCTS................. monoxide and carbon dioxide. HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION. Will not occur. Avoid excessively large masses of mixed resin and hardener. If the mass is of sufficient size, the material may self-ignite (exotherm). This is not a problem during normal usage conditions. Consult the Technical Data Bulletin for more information. Avoid excessive heat, moisture contamination and cross-contamination of resin and hardener. SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION Toxicological information on components of this product are as follows: Mice receiving skin applications for two years of an epoxy resin very similar to the one in this product have yielded very limited evidence of weak carcinogenicity. The published report on this study concluded that the epoxy resin "is not a systemic carcinogen when applied to the skin of CF1 mice" and the tumor data "was of no biological importance." Based on all available data, IARC concluded in 1988 that this class of epoxy resins is not classified as a carcinogen. The aliphatic epoxy resin has an oral LD50(rat) of 1410 mg/kg and a dermal LD50(rabbit) of 1100 mg/kg. The inhalation LC50 is >11.3 mg/liter. Animal studies (guinea pig) have shown this resin to be a skin sensitizer. Mutagenicity studies are mixed. The sister chromatid exchange(chinese hamster) test had negative results, but the Ames test, the nucleus anomaly test(chinese hamster) and mouse lymphoma tests(with and without activation) had positive results. However, in a 2 year skin painting study of carcinogenicity (mice), no biologically significant effects were noted. SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION No ecological data is available. SECTION 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS Controlled incineration or buried landfill disposal should be in accordance with all federal, state and local environmental regulations.
