Eye contact
Remove contact lenses. Irrigate copiously with clean, fresh water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eyelids apart. Seek medical
advice.
Skin contact
Do NOT use solvents or thinners. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water or use
recognized skin cleanser. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.
Inhalation
Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist. Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of vapours. If breathing is irregular or stopped,
administer artificial respiration. If unconscious place in recovery position and seek medical advice. If symptoms persist, call a
physician.
Ingestion
If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this safety data sheet (SDS) or product label. Do NOT induce vomiting.
Keep at rest.
Most Important Symptoms/effects, acute and delayed
Inhalation
May cause nose and throat irritation. May cause nervous system depression characterized by the following progressive steps:
headache, dizziness, nausea, staggering gait, confusion, unconsciousness. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged
overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage. If this product mixed with an isocyanate
activator/hardener (see MSDS for the activator), the following health effects may apply: Exposure to isocyanates may cause
respiratory sensitization. This effect may be permanent. Symptoms include an asthma-like reaction with shortness of breath,
wheezing, cough or permanent lung sensitization. This effect may be delayed for several hours after exposure. Repeated
overexposure to isocyanates may cause a decrease in lung function, which may be permanent. Individuals with lung or breathing
problems or prior reactions to isocyanates must not be exposed to vapors or spray mist of this product.
Ingestion
May result in gastrointestinal distress.
Skin or eye contact
May cause irritation or burning of the eyes. Repeated or prolonged liquid contact may cause skin irritation with discomfort and
dermatitis.
If this product is mixed with an isocyanate, skin contact may cause sensitization.
Indication of Immediate medical attention and special treatment needed if necessary
No data available on the product. See section 3 and 11 for hazardous ingredients found in the product.
5. Firefighting measures
Suitable extinguishing media
Universal aqueous film-forming foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry chemical
Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons
High volume water jet
Hazardous combustion products
CO, CO2, smoke, and oxides of any heavy metals that are reported in “Composition, Information on Ingredients” section.
Fire and Explosion Hazards
Flammable liquid. Vapor/air mixture will burn when an ignition source is present.
B10356908
Special Protective Equipment and Fire Fighting Procedures
Full protective flameproof clothing should be worn as appropriate. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if
necessary. In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter public sewer systems or
public waterways.

6. Accidental release measures
Procedures for cleaning up spills or leaks
Ventilate area. Remove sources of ignition. Prevent skin and eye contact and breathing of vapor. If the material contains, or is mixed
with an isocyanate activator/hardener: Wear a positive-pressure, supplied-air respirator (NIOSH approved TC-19C), eye protection,
gloves and protective clothing. Pour liquid decontamination solution over the spill and allow to sit at least 10 minutes. Typical
decontamination solutions for isocyanate containing materials are: 20% Surfactant (Tergitol TMN 10) and 80% Water OR 0 -10%
Ammonia, 2-5% Detergent and Water (balance) Pressure can be generated. Do not seal waste containers for 48 hours to allow C02
to vent. After 48 hours, material may be sealed and disposed of properly. If material does not contain or is not mixed with an
isocyanate activator/hardener: Wear a properly fitted air-purifying respirator with organic vapor cartridges (NIOSH approved
TC-23C), eye protection, gloves and protective clothing. Confine, remove with inert absorbent, and dispose of properly.
Environmental precautions
Do not let product enter drains. Notify the respective authorities in accordance with local law in the case of contamination of rivers,
lakes or waste water systems.
7. Handling and storage
Precautions for safe handling
Observe label precautions. Keep away from heat, sparks, flame, static discharge and other sources of ignition. VAPORS MAY
CAUSE FLASH FIRE. Close container after each use. Ground containers when pouring. Do not transfer contents to bottles or
unlabeled containers. Wash thoroughly after handling and before eating or smoking. Do not store above 49 ◦ C (120 ◦ F).
If material is a coating: do not sand, flame cut, braze or weld dry coating without a NIOSH approved air purifying respirator with
particulate filters or appropriate ventilation , and gloves. Combustible dust clouds may be created where operations produce fine
material (dust). Avoid formation of significant deposits of material as they may become airborne and form combustible dust clouds.
Build up of fine material should be cleaned using gentle sweeping or vacuuming in accordance with best practices. Cleaning methods
(e.g. compressed air) which can generate potentially combustible dust clouds should not be used.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Solvent vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air and will burn when an
ignition source is present. Always keep in containers of same material as the original one. Never use pressure to empty container:
container is not a pressure vessel. The accumulation of contaminated rags may result in spontaneous combustion. Good
housekeeping standards and regular safe removal of waste materials will minimize the risks of spontaneous combustion and other
fire hazards.
Storage
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Observe label precautions. Store in a dry, well ventilated place away from sources of heat, ignition and direct sunlight. No smoking.
Prevent unauthorized access. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
Advice on common storage
Store separately from oxidizing agents and strongly alkaline and strongly acidic materials.
OSHA/NFPA Storage Classification: IC
8. Exposure controls/personal protection
Engineering controls and work practices
Provide adequate ventilation. This should be achieved by a good general extraction and -if practically feasible- by the use of a local
exhaust ventilation. If these are not sufficient to maintain concentrations of particulates and solvent vapour below the OEL, suitable
respiratory protection must be worn.

Symptoms related to the physical, chemical and toxicological characteristics
Exposure to component solvents vapours concentration in excess of the stated occupational exposure limit may result in adverse
health effect such as mucous membrane and respiratory system irritation and adverse effect on kidney, liver and central nervous
system. Symptoms and signs include headache, dizziness, fatigue, muscular weakness, drowsiness and in extreme cases, loss of
consciousness. Through skin resorbtion, solvents can cause some of the effects described here. Repeated or prolonged contact with
