Emergency Overview

Flammable Gas              Aerosol cans may explode in fire situations. Prolonged spraying
                           onto skin, or directly into eyes may cause freezing of tissue,
                           resulting in frost bite type injury. Risk of lung damage if solvent
                           aspirated into lungs.
Warning Statements         Based on available information, classified as hazardous according to
                           health criteria of NOHSC Australia.

Potential Health Effects

Eye                        Vapour may cause eye irritation. Spraying directly into eyes may
                           cause severe damage.
Skin                       May cause mild irritation. Prolonged spraying onto skin may cause
                           freezing of tissue resulting in frost bite type injury.
Inhalation                 Vapour concentrations may result in possible headaches, dizziness
                           and nausea and drowsiness.
Ingestion                  Harmful if swallowed. Aspiration into the lungs may cause chemical
                           pneumonitis and lung damage.

FIRST AID MEASURES

Ingestion                  Do not induce vomiting, as aspiration may occur and cause lung
                           damage. SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
Eye contact                Flush immediately with water while holding eyelids open for several
                           minutes. If persistent irritation after 30 min rest occurs, seek
                           medical assistance.
Skin contact               Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with water using soap if
                           available.
Inhalation                 Remove from exposure immediately. If rapid recovery does not
                           occur, obtain medical attention.
Advice to Doctor           Treat as exposure to hydrocarbon propellants and petroleum
                           distillates.

FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash Point                Propellant -81oC, Active -30oC

Special Protective         possible. In case of fire, use Self Contained Breathing Apparatus
Equipment                  and full protective clothing. Use water sprays to cool fire exposed
                           containers.




HEAVY DUTY LANOLIN                                                                    Page 2 of 4
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Spillage                    Spill from an aerosol can is unlikely. A leaking can should be placed
                            outside until the can is empty. Inside, eliminate all sources of
                            ignition. Ventilate area. Note that propellant vapour is heavier than
                            air and will settle at lowest point, eg. drains, ditches etc.

HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling                    Avoid using in a confined space. Avoid handling product near
                            extreme heat or ignition sources. However on application, the
                            propellant and solvent evaporate (min 2 hours depending on the
                            ambient temperature). Therefore treated items should not present
                            a flammability hazard when dry.
Storage                     Flammable gas – must be stored in accordance with government
                            regulations for aerosols. Must not be stored with Dangerous Goods
                            as listed in “Transport Information” section below. Do not cut or
                            incinerate empty containers. Schedule 5 Poison – must be stored in
                            accordance with state poisons regulations. Keep away from ignition
                            sources.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

National Occupational       TWA (8h) = 50ppm
Exposure Limits             TWA (8h) = 176 mg/m3
Engineering Measures        Keep away from sunlight, heat or sources of ignition. Use only with
                            adequate ventilation.
PPE                         Use suitable protective equipment to avoid eye and skin contact. If
                            necessary use respirator to avoid breathing in vapours in confined
                            spaces.

STABILITY AND REACTIVITY

Stability                   Stable under anticipated conditions of storage and handling.
Conditions to Avoid         Heat, flames and sparks.
Hazardous                   Will not occur.

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
No specific information is available for Heavy Duty Lanolin Aerosol, information presented is for
the propellant and solvent. No adverse effects are expected if handled in accordance with this
Safety Data Sheet and the product label. Symptoms that may arise if the product are
mishandled or overexposure occurs are:

Ingestion                   Swallowing can result in nausea, vomiting and central nervous
                            system depression (like drunkenness). If victim is showing signs of
                            central nervous system depression there is greater likelihood of
                            inhaling vomit and damaging lungs.
Eye Contact                 Vapour may cause eye irritation. Spraying directly into eyes may
                            cause severe damage.
Skin Contact                Contact with skin may cause irritation. Will have a degreasing
                            action on the skin. Prolonged spraying onto skin may cause freezing
                            of tissue resulting in frost bite type injury.
Inhalation                  Breathing in vapours may result in possible headaches, dizziness
                            and drowsiness. High concentrations may cause central nervous
                            system depression, which can lead to loss of coordination, impaired
                            judgment and possible loss of consciousness.

ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Ecotoxicity                 No specific data is available for Heavy Duty Lanolin Spray. Principal
                            ingredients are wool grease hydrocarbon solvent and propellant.
                            Wool grease is not regarded as hazardous. Both propellant and
                            solvent evaporate after application, leaving behind a coating of
                            lanolin. Hence treated items should not present an aquatic hazard
                            once dried.

DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Waste Disposal              Do not puncture or incinerate cans even when empty. Recycle
                            empty cans if facility is available, otherwise cans may be disposed of
                            in household garbage.
