IV. HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Ingestion is the primary method of possible entry. Material will not pass
the skin barrier. Inhalation is unlikely due to low vapor pressure.
EFFECTS OF ACUTE OVEREXPOSURE:
INHALATION – Concentration in excess of 1000 ppm may cause headache, nasal and respiratory irritation, nausea, drowsiness, fatigue, eyei rritation and central nervous system depression. Narcotic effects may bes evere at concentrations greater than 20,000 ppm.
SKIN CONTACT –Material will not pass the skin barrier.
INGESTION – Headache, drowsiness, nausea, fatigue, CNS depression. LD50 for rabbits is 28g/kg; estimated toxic adult dose 3-4 oz.
EYE – May cause pain and irritation.
EFFECTS OF CHRONIC OVEREXPOSURE:
SKIN CONTACT – Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause defatting of
the skin and subsequent rash or irritation.
ALL ROUTES OF ENTRY – Based on available data, repeated exposures are
not anticipated to cause any significant adverse effects. Birth defects are
unlikely. Exposures having no adverse effects on mother should have no
effect on the fetus. In animal studies, has been shown not to interfere
with reproduction. Results of in vitro ("test tube") mutagenicity tests have
been negative. Results of mutagenicity tests in animals have been negative.
CARCINOGENICITY –Does not cause cancer in long term animal studies. Not a carcinogen or
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
EYE – Flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes. Supportive
treatment by a physician is recommended.
SKIN – Wash with mild soap and water. Remove wetted clothing until dry.
INHALATION – Remove to fresh air. Individuals showing pronounced
anesthetic effects may require artificial respiration and oxygen.
INGESTION – Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician and/or transport to emergency medical facility immediately.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN:
ORAL: Low in toxicity. Emetics are contraindicated due to danger of aspiration. If CNS Depression is prominent, nikethamide may be givenp arenterally. Avoid epinephrine. If and when warranted by special circumstances, gastric lavage may be performed cautiously with 3% sodium bicarbonate or water. Instill 30 to 60 ml of olive oil in the stomach at the conclusion of lavage and follow with a saline cathartic (sodium sulfate) in water.
V. REACTIVITY DATA
STABILITY – Chemical stability is great; odor and color may be adversely affected by prolonged
storage in hot, moist environment.
INCOMPATIBILITY – May cause swelling of some plastics and synthetic rubbers. Contact with strong
oxidizing agents should be avoided. (Example: Oxygen gas under high pressure.)
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS – None, Incomplete combustion can yield carbon monoxide.
CONDITIONS CONTRIBUTING TO HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION – None
VI. DISPOSAL, SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
AQUATIC TOXICITY – Aquatic toxicity is low: Product is not soluble in water.
SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES – FOR SMALL SPILLS, absorb with inert material (saw dust, rags, activated charcoal). Remove to out of doors and incinerate. FOR LARGE SPILLS, evacuate area. contain liquid; transfer to closed metal (steel) containers. Keep out of water supply. Protect from ignition sources.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD– Small amounts may be incinerated in compliance with local, state and federal regulations. The recommended method of disposal for large quantities is recycling by
a reclaimer or incineration. "If inert absorbents are employed in spill containment or cleanup, these absorbents must be non-biodegradable materials if destined for landfill disposal. Suitable absorbents include natural minerals (clay), activated charcoal, man-made polymers (HD polyethylene)."
NEUTRALIZATION CHEMICAL: Product may be effectively absorbed with activated charcoal.
VII. SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS– Normal ventilation with regular use to maintain vapor concentration below 1000 ppm.
SPECIFIC PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT – RESPIRATORY: None during normal use. Up to 2500 ppm, half-mask organic vapor respirator. Up to 5000 ppm, full-face organic vapor respirator, or full-face supplied air respirator. Greater than 5000 ppm, fire fighting or unknown concentration, self
-contained breathing apparatus with positive pressure.
EYES – None during normal use; face shield is recommended during machining operations.
SKIN – None required for casual contact during normal use. Nitrile, neoprene or other petroleum distillate resistant gloves and/or boots recommended for dealing with large spills.
VIII. SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
It is a combustible liquid, keep away from open flames. Do not ingest. Do not expose to ignition sources. Do not store with any strong oxidizers.
IX. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Tap Magic Aluminum DOES NOT CONTAIN 1,1,1-trichloroethane, or any ozone-depleting substances. Tap Magic Aluminum does not contain nitrites, nitrite derivatives, amines, polynuclear aromatic compounds either as an ingredient or a trace contaminant. Tap Magic Aluminum does not contain any chemical compound listed on the SARA list of "Extremely Hazardous Chemicals" and is in compliance with all of the requirements of the TSCA at the time of shipment.
Caution – Any cutting fluid can be "overworked" or "overheated", causing it to break down. This overuse is identified by the sight of or strong odor of vapors or fumes not normally present. The effects of these vapors or fumes on human health have not been fully determined. After use of this product, clean and lubricate metal surfaces to avoid staining and/or corrosion. Shelf life is indefinite at ambient temperatures and left in original containers.
