Chronic: Animal test data indicates a carcinogenic potential in animals which were exposed to styrene at elevated levels. Use of this material at or below the TWA is not considered to be harmful to most workers. Chronic exposures can also lead to a loss of appetite, weakness and concentration difficulties. Exposure to Dibenzoyl peroxide may cause sensitisation by skin contact. Styrene Monomer: Oral Rat LD50 6800 mg/kg No other data noted. SECTION 12: ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Ecotoxicity: Benzoyl peroxide is harmful to aquatic organisms. May cause adverse effects in the aquatic environment.

SECTION 13: DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS Do not allow to enter drains or waterways. Mixing the resin component with the peroxide (hardener) component will cause the mixture to harden.
