SECTION 3 ?HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
Emergency Overview: Vapors are heavier than air and will collect in low areas. Use only in well-ventilated areas that will maintain air levels below limits
established by federal, state, and local regulations.
Potential Health Effects
Eyes: High vapor concentration or contact may cause irritation, discomfort or pain. May cause slight transient corneal injury.
Skin: Brief contact may cause slight irritation; prolonged contact may cause moderate irritation or dermatitis. Problem may be accentuated by liquid
becoming trapped against the skin by contaminated clothing and shoes.
Ingestion: Swallowing this material may result in irritation of the mouth and GI tract. Vomiting and subsequent aspiration into the lungs may lead to
chemical pneumonia and pulmonary edema which is a potentially fatal condition.
Inhalation: High concentrations are irritating to the respiratory tract; may cause headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting or even death in confined or poorly
ventilated areas. The primary effect of inhalation is narcosis.
Chronic Exposure: chronic exposure may cause liver, kidney or central nervous system damage. Perchloroethylene is a suspected cancer risk from animal
studies, and is listed under IRAC as Group 28, possibly carcinogenic to humans.
Carcinogenicity: Perchloroethylene is a suspected cancer risk from animal studies, and is listed under IRAC as Group 28, possibly carcinogenic to humans.
Medical Conditions Aggravated be Exposure: ACUTE (Primary Route of Exposure) Acute effects are possible irritation
SECTION 4 ?FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: Flush with water for 15 minutes, holding eyelids open; if irritation persists, seek medical attention.
Skin: Remove contaminated clothing; wash effected area with soap and water; launder contaminated clothing before reuse; if irritation persists, seek medical
Ingestion: If conscious, drink large amounts of water; DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING; take immediately to hospital. Do not give anything by mouth to an
Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air; provide oxygen if breathing is difficult; administer CPR if victim is not breathing; seek medical attention.
SECTION 5 ?FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Fire and Explosion Hazards: Closed containers can explode due to buildup of pressure when exposed to extreme heat. Do not use direct stream of water.
Caution: material is combustible.
Special Firefighting Procedures: Must wear full facepiece, self-contained breathing apparatus in positive pressure mode. Do not use solid stream of water;
use fine water spray.
SECTION 6 ?ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Spill or Leak: COMBUSTIBLE Evacuate and ventilate area; confine and absorb into absorbent; place material into approved containers for disposal; for
spills in excess of allowable limits (RQ) notify the National Response Center at (800) 424-8802; refer to CERCLA 40 CFR 302 and SARA Title III, Section
313 40 CFR 372 for detailed instructions concerning reporting requirements.
SECTION 7 ?HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling Procedures and Equipment: minimize body contact with this product as well as all chemicals. Avoid inhaling concentrated fumes or vapors.
Storage Requirements: Material is combustible. Should be stored in tightly closed containers in cool, well ventilated area. Vapor may form explosive
mixtures in air. All Sources of ignition should be controlled. Keep this and other chemicals out of reach of children
SECTION 8 ?EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Respiratory Protection: NIOSH-approved respirator must be worn if OSHA threshold limits exceeded.
Eye Protection: goggles with side shield. Glove: Solvent- resistant rubber or neoprene.
Protective Clothing: Safety eye bath nearby.
Exposure Guidelines: No Data.
Specific Engineering Controls (such as ventilation, enclosed process): Local and mechanical exhaust is required.
