This material is flammable. Avoid breathing vapor.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
Primary Routes of Exposure
Eye Contact: Vapors may irritate eyes and mucus membranes.
Skin Contact: Contact with skin may cause irritation, possible rash or reddening upon contact. May
cause allergic reaction or skin desensitization.
Inhalation: Inhalation of high vapor concentrations may have results ranging from dizziness,
headaches, shortness of breath, muscular weakness to unconsciousness.
Ingestion: May be toxic if ingested in large amounts. May cause throat irritation, gastrointestinal
discomfort, and vomiting.
Other: Effects of Overexposure - Inhalation of high vapor concentrations may have results ranging
from dizziness and headaches to unconsciousness. Prolonged or repeated liquid contact with the
skin will dry and de-fat skin, leading to dermatitis.
Refer to Section 11 for toxicological information.
SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
If in Eyes: Flush eyes with water for 15-20 minutes. Seek medical attention.
If on Skin: Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.
If Inhaled: Move victim to fresh air. If unconscious, seek medical attention at once.
If Swallowed: Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical attention.
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash Point: 6 Deg F
Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) %: Tetrahydrofuran 2.0% Cyclohexanone 1.1%
Upper Explosive Limit (UEL) %: Tetrahydrofuran 11.8% Cyclohexanone 12.75%
Auto-Ignition Temperature: N.A.
OSHA Flammability Classification: N.A.
Hazardous Products of Combustion: See Section 10
Extinguishing Media: N.A.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Flammable material
Fire Fighting Equipment: Use foam, carbon dioxide, or dry chemical fire fighting apparatus.
Miscellaneous Advice: Solvent vapors can travel to an ignition source and flash back. Vapors can
form explosive mixtures with air. Containers may vent, rupture, or burst at temperatures of 130 Deg
F or over. Water spray may be used to keep closed containers cool to prevent pressure build-up.
Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and use equipment to protect against
venting or bursting of containers. Avoid breathing vapors.
Refer to Section 10 for additional information.
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions: Remove all possible sources of ignition.
Methods for Clean-up: Transfer to a suitable container using non-sparking tools.
Refer to Section 13 for disposal information.
Refer to Sections 14 and 15 for reportable quantity information.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling: Use only in a well ventilated area.
Storage: Close containers after use. Store in a dry environment away from any sources of ignition.
Keep from prolonged freezing for optimum performance. Acceptable storage temperature range is
35-95 deg F.
Consult the Mannington Professional Installation Handbook for additional information on
handling and storage.
SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering Controls: Use adequate ventilation, local exhaust at point of use.
Respiratory Protection: Use NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying respiration with combination
dust/mist filter and organic vapor cartridge if ventilation is not present.
Eye Protection: Chemical safety glasses.
Hand and Skin Protection: Use gloves if in contact with skin.
Other Protective Equipment:
Hygienic Practices: Always wash hands before eating, smoking or using toilet facilities. Do not
smoke in any chemical handling or storage area. Food or beverages should not be consumed
anywhere this product is handled or stored. Wash thoroughly after handling.
