Section 4       First-aid Measures

EYES: Hold eyelids open and rinse the eye continuously with a gently stream of clean running water for at least fifteen
minutes. Seek medical attention.
SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing and wash thoroughly with soap and water. Use water alone, if soap is unavailable.
Apply a moisturising hand cream, if available. Seek medical attention if any soreness or inflammation of the skin persists
or develops later. Launder affected clothing before re-use.
VOMITING. If the person is conscious, rinse mouth out with water ensuring that mouthwash is not swallowed. Give about
250mL (2 glasses) of water to drink. DO NOT attempt to induce vomiting. Seek URGENT medical attention. For advice,
contact TOXFREE on 1800HAZMAT (1800 429 628) or a Poisons Information Centre (phone eg Australia 131 126; New
Zealand 0800 764 766).
INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. Keep warm and at rest. If breathing is laboured, hold in a half upright position (this
assists respiration). Apply artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. Seek medical attention. URGENT medical
attention is required if over-exposure has been severe.
ADVICE TO DOCTOR: Treat symptomatically. Advise Doctor of the presence of liquid hydrocarbons. Gastric lavage
should only be undertaken after endotracheal intubation because of the risk of aspiration.

Section 5        Fire-fighting Measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Extinguish using foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical extinguishers. Water may be used to
cool fire-exposed containers but is not suitable for fire fighting.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: May evolve carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen or chlorine
compounds if incompletely burned in a fire situation.
PRECAUTIONS: Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.

Section 6        Accidental Release Measures

Ensure that there are no sources of ignition present. Remove unnecessary personnel from the affected area.
Wear protective equipment as specified for handling. Cover with an absorbent such as earth, sand or a commercial oil
absorber. Sweep up and collect in sealable containers. Dispose to approved landfill.

Contaminated rags or other combustible materials may be liable to spontaneous ignition.
                                                                                                     Dated 31st March 2010

         Exposure standards represent airborne concentrations of individual chemical substances, which, according to
         current knowledge, should neither impair the health of, nor cause undue discomfort to, nearly all workers.
         Except where modified by consideration of excursion limits, exposure standards apply to long term exposure to a
         substance over an eight-hour day, for a five-day working week, over an entire working life.
         Except for short-term exposure limits (STELs), or where a peak value has been assigned, the exposure
         standards for airborne contaminants are expressed as a time-weighted average (TWA) concentration of that
         substance over an eight-hour working day, for a five-day working week.
         From: Adopted National Exposure Standards for Atmospheric Contaminants in the Occupational Environment
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Prevent spark formation created by static electricity, by earthing vessels. When using this
product, all electrical equipment should be consistent with the requirements of AS 2430.1 and AS 2430.3, (Classification
of Hazardous Areas), and AS 3000, (SAA Wiring Rules). Use in well ventilated areas to prevent vapour build up. Use
mechanical and/or natural ventilation to ensure that solvent vapour levels are maintained below the recommended
exposure standard. Refer to AS 1940 - The storage and handling of flammable and combustible liquids and AS 2430 -
Explosive gas atmospheres for further information concerning ventilation requirements.
Respirator Type (AS 1716) - An air supplied respirator is required for all spray painting applications and a half face
respirator with particulate and organic solvent vapour filter may be required for other uses unless the work area is well
ventilated. In confined spaces use air supplied breathing apparatus. N.B. TAKE THE LIMITS OF ABSORPTION
Eye Protection - Eye protection is required to prevent splashing in the eyes, eg. Safety glasses with side shields or
chemical goggles. Wear full-face shield if mixing or pouring operations pose risk of splashes. An eye wash station is
suggested as a good work place practice.
Glove Type - Wear nitrile, viton, neoprene or other similar solvent resistant gloves to keep skin contact to a minimum.

Section 11         Toxicological Information

INGESTION: Moderately toxic. Tends to break up into foam if the patient vomits and there is the potential for aspiration
into the lungs to occur. This can result in chemical pneumonitis.
EYE Direct eye contact may cause moderate to severe irritation. The vapour is irritating to the eyes.
SKIN: Irritating. Contact with the product may defat the skin and contribute to dermatitis.
INHALATION: Inhalation of solvent vapour may cause nose and throat irritation. Overexposures are irritating to the
respiratory system. Inhalation may also result in nervous system effects such as dizziness, nausea, headache and
sleepiness. In extreme cases loss of consciousness may result
Prolonged and/or repeated skin contact may lead to irritant contact dermatitis. Prolonged and repeated over-exposure
may result in liver and kidney damage. Alkanes, chloro-, C14-17 may accumulate in body tissues and fluids rich in lipid
content hence may cause harm to breastfed babies
Solvent naphtha (petroleum) light aromatic and propylene oxide have been classified by Safe Work Australia as
Category 2 i.e. Probable Human Carcinogens. Probable human carcinogens are those substances for which there is
sufficient evidence to provide a strong presumption that human exposure might result in the development of cancer. This
evidence is generally based on appropriate long-term animal studies, limited epidemiological evidence or other relevant
information. However, the composition of petroleum solvents may vary significantly and the solvents included in this
product may not fall within this classification but without further information, this cannot be confirmed.
Xylene has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (I.A.R.C.) in Group 3 i.e. not classifiable
as to their carcinogenicity to humans.

Section 12         Ecological Information

MOBILITY: Rubber, iron oxide, barium sulphate, magnesium silicate, and titanium dioxide components sink in water but
the solvents in this product are expected to float or dissolve in water. Highly mobile. May contaminate groundwater.
The solvents in this product are expected to have moderate to high mobility in soils based upon experimental Koc values
obtained with a variety of soils at differing pH values and organic carbon content. Volatilisation from moist soil surfaces is
expected based on experimental Henry's Law constants.
PERSISTANCE / DEGRADABILITY: Alkanes, chloro are hazardous to the aquatic environment. Rubber, iron oxide,
barium sulphate, magnesium silicate, and titanium dioxide components will persist but the solvents are readily
biodegradable. Based upon experimental vapour pressures, the solvents in this product are expected to exist entirely in
the vapour phase in the ambient atmosphere. Vapour-phase solvents are degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with
photo chemically produced hydroxyl radicals with an estimated atmospheric lifetime of about 1-2 days. Biodegradation is
an important environmental fate process for these solvents. In general, it has been found that these solvents are
biodegraded in soil and groundwater samples under aerobic conditions and may be degraded under anaerobic
denitrifying conditions. Solvents are not expected to absorb on sediments.
BIOACCUMULATION: Does not bioaccululate significantly. The potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is
low based on an experimental BCF values of 20 or less.

Section 13         Disposal Considerations

Dispose to landfill or by controlled incineration in chemical waste disposal area in accordance with relevant
Commonwealth, State and Territory regulations. Empty containers may contain product residue, including flammable or
explosive vapours. Do not cut, puncture or weld on or near containers. All label warnings must be observed until the
containers have been cleaned or reconditioned.
