4. FIRST-AID MEASURES
Never give fluids or induce vomiting if patient is unconscious or is
having convulsions.
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If
breathing is difficult, oxygen should be administered by qualified
personnel. Call a physician or transport to a medical facility.
Skin Contact
Remove material from skin immediately by washing with soap and plenty
of water (warm water is preferable if readily available). Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes while washing. Seek medical attention
if irritation persists.
Eye Contact
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Consult
medical personnel.
Ingestion
No adverse effects anticipated by this route of exposure.
Note to Physician
Treat symptomatically. The components of this product are respiratory
irritants and potential respiratory sensitizers. Treatment is
essentially symptomatic for primary irritation or bronchospasms.
Exposed persons should be kept under medical observation for at least
48 hours because delayed effects may occur.

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Extinguishing Media
Carbon dioxide. Dry chemical. Foam. Water fog or fine spray.
Extinguishing Media to Avoid
DO NOT USE WATER JET.
Hazardous Combustion Products
Combustion will lead to the build-up of other toxic pyrolysis products
together with carbon and nitrogen oxides. Hazardous combustion products
may include and are not limited to: Nitrogen oxides. Carbon oxides.
Hydrogen chloride. Hydrogen cyanide. Fluorine. Halogenated compounds.
Other hazardous gaseous products.
Protection of Firefighters
Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and
protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat,
trousers, boots and gloves). Avoid contact with this material during
fire fighting operations. If contact is likely, wear full chemical
resistant clothing with positive-pressure self-contained breathing
apparatus. This may not provide sufficient fire protection; consider
fighting fire from a remote location.

Specific Fire or Explosion Hazards
Keep possible ignition sources away from vapours.
Violent eruption of containers may occur under fire conditions. During
a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to
unidentified toxic and/or irritating compounds.
Specific Methods of Firefighting
Down-wind personnel must be evacuated. Use water spray to disperse
vapours, to cool surfaces or to protect personnel attempting to
minimise damage and spills. Do not discharge extinguishing waters into
streams, rivers and lakes.
________________________________________________________________________
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions
Evacuate non-emergency personnel from area. Only trained and properly
protected personnel should be involved in cleanup operations.
Respiratory protection should include positive pressure, self-contained
breathing apparatus. Wear adequate personal protective equipment, see
Section 8, EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION.
Eliminate all ignition sources.
Environmental Precautions
Prevent from entering sewers or drains.
Methods of Cleaning Up
Recover if possible, or dispose of according to applicable regulations,
see Section 13, DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS.
________________________________________________________________________
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Practice care and caution to avoid skin and eye contact.
Handling
Atmospheric levels should be maintained below the exposure guideline.
Eliminate all ignition sources. Products based on diisocyanates like
MDI and TDI should always be used in a well ventilated area with
appropriate local extraction in such a way that the Occupational
Exposure Limits (OEL) for these materials are not exceeded. It is
recommended that the diisocyanate concentration in the air be checked
at regular intervals. Do not eat, drink or smoke in working area.
Storage
Keep away from oxidising material(s). Store in cool, dry well
ventilated area away from sources of ignition and heat. Keep in a cool
place, heat causes an increase in pressure and risk of bursting.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Guidelines
None established for the preparation.
Dimethyl ether: The EC indicative limit values for occupational
exposure are 1920 mg/m3 (1000 ppm) TWA-8hours.
MDI: OEL's (Occupational Exposure Limits) have been set for MDI in most
countries, the common values being 5-20 ppb. National guidelines on
emission limits for volatile substances must be observed for the
discharge of exhaust air containing vapours of this product.
1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane: Producer industry recommends an occupational
exposure limit of 1000 ppm TWA-8 hours.
Engineering Controls
Eye wash fountain and safety shower should be located in the immediate
vicinity of the work area. Provide general and/or local exhaust
ventilation to control airborne levels below the exposure guidelines.
Use only with adequate ventilation.
Personal Protective Equipment
Respiratory Protection
Atmospheric levels should be maintained below the exposure guideline.
When respiratory protection is required for certain operations, use an
approved air-purifying respirator. For operations such as spraying and
other conditions, such as emergencies where the exposure guideline may
be greatly exceeded, use an approved positive-pressure self-contained
breathing apparatus.
Skin Protection
Safety shower should be located in immediate work area. Use protective
clothing impervious to this material. Selection of specific items such
as face shield, gloves, boots, apron, or full body-suit will depend on
operation.
After work and before eating, drinking or smoking wash and clean
yourself carefully with soap and water. Contaminated clothing should be
washed and/or dry cleaned before re-use. Items which cannot be
decontaminated, such as shoes, belts and watchbands, should be removed
and destroyed.
Eye/Face Protection
Eye wash fountain should be located in immediate work area. Use
chemical goggles.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
None established for the preparation.
Assessments based on studies of the individual components of the
material.
Acute toxicity
Short-term exposure
Ingestion
Data for: MDI: Single dose oral toxicity is considered to be low. The
oral LD50 for rats is >2000 mg/kg. Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal
irritation.
Eye Contact
Data for: MDI: May cause moderate eye irritation. May cause very slight
transient (temporary) corneal injury.

________________________________________________________________________
Skin Contact
Data for: MDI: According to human experience, the material may cause
moderate to severe irritation. May stain skin. The LD50 for skin
absorption in rabbits is >2000 mg/kg.
Inhalation
Acute inhalation toxicity of 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane is low, but
exposure to high concentrations causes asphyxiation.
Data for: Polymeric MDI: The 4 hour LC50 for rats is 490 mg/m3
(aerosol).
Vapour and aerosol can cause severe irritation of the respiratory tract
with burning sensation to the nose and throat. High exposure can result
in inflammation of lung tissue and fluid in the lungs. In hypersensitive people very low concentrations may lead to
bronchoconstriction (asthmatic signs and symptoms). Effects may be
delayed.
Repeated and long-term exposure
Respiratory sensitisation
May cause sensitization by inhalation. Chronic exposure by inhalation
may result in a permanent decrease of lung function.
Skin Contact
May cause sensitization by skin contact. Animal studies have shown that
skin contact with diisocyanates may play a role in respiratory
sensitisation.
Carcinogenicity
Data for: MDI: Rats have been exposed for two years to an
experimentally produced respirable aerosol of polymeric MDI which
resulted in chronic pulmonary irritation at high concentrations. The
prolonged irritation led to the formation of tumours in the lungs of a
small proportion of the rats exposed to 6 mg/cubic m. There were no
tumours at 1 mg/cubic m and no effects at 0.2 mg/cubic m. In the
absence of prolonged high exposure leading to chronic irritation and
lung damage it is highly unlikely that tumours could occur, although
these results reinforce the need to observe the recommended safety
precautions and occupational exposure limit when working with MDI based
products. Industrial experience in humans has not shown any links
between MDI based products exposure and cancer development.
