11. Toxicological information
Information on likely routes of exposure
Harmful if inhaled. May cause allergy or asthma symptoms or breathing difficulties if inhaled. May
Inhalation
cause damage to organs by inhalation. If vapors, mists, or sprays of this product are inhaled, they
can irritate and burn the nose, throat, and respiratory system. Symptoms of inhalation
over-exposure may include sore throat, choking, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Prolonged or
repeated over-exposure may cause burns and ulcers to the nose and throat, dental erosion,
bronchitis, and stomach pains. It has been reported that a worker developed asthmatic symptoms
after performing soldering work with a flux containing Ammonium and Zinc Chlorides (components
of this product). It has been reported that inhalation of Methanol (a component of this product)
vapors in high concentrations can cause blindness. Severe inhalation overexposure may cause
pulmonary edema (a life-threatening accumulation of fluid in the lungs) or pneumonitis. Symptoms
of pulmonary edema (e.g., shortness of breath, chest pains) can be delayed for several hours
after exposure. Severe inhalation of vapors or fumes (as may occur if individuals are exposed in
poorly ventilated areas, such as confined spaces) may be harmful.
Skin contact
Causes severe skin burns. Depending on the duration and concentration of over-exposure, skin
contact with this product can irritate and burn the skin. Repeated or prolonged over-exposure to
this product may result in dermatitis (red, dry, itchy skin) and ulceration. Methanol (a component
of this product) is readily absorbed through the skin. Because Methanol is a minor component of
this product, skin absorption is not anticipated to be a significant route of over-exposure.
Eye contact
Depending on the duration and concentration of over-exposure, eye contact with this product can
irritate and burn the eyes. Eye over-exposure can cause pain, tearing, and redness. Severe eye
over-exposure may cause blindness. Causes serious eye damage.
Ingestion
Harmful if swallowed. Causes digestive tract burns. If this flux is ingested, nausea, vomiting, and
diarrhea may occur (depending on the amount of the product swallowed). Severe ingestion
exposures may result in damage to the tissues of the gastrointestinal system, and death.
