SECTION V-Health Hazard and First Aid

Time Weighted Average (TWA):         50 ppm based in the raw material TWA

Carcinogen:                                                                No

Acute Chronic Health Effects:                 Excessive exposure may cause irritation to upper respiratory tract. Excessive exposure may cause                                                                                                      carboxyhemoglobinemia, thereby impairing the bloods ability to transport oxygen.

Primary Routes of Entry:                               X Inhalation                                        X Skin                              X Ingestion

Effects of Overexposure:                              Eyes- May cause pain, moderate eye irritation, and slight corneal injury, Vapors may irritate eyes.
