MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
SECTION IV - FIRE & EXPLOSION DATA
Flash point (Closed cup): 72
Approximate flammable limits: 1,5
Extinguishing media: Foam, carbon dioxide, and dry chemical.
Special fire fighting procedures: Water spray may be ineffective. Water Spray may be used to cool closed containers to prevent pressure build-up and possible auto ignition or
explosion when exposed to extreme heat. If water is used, fog nozzles are preferable. Fire Fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.
Unusual fire & explosion hazards: Keep this product away from heat, sparks and flame, and other sources of ignition. Invisible vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back.
Do not smoke while using this product. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Closed containers may explode when overheated. Do not apply to hot surfaces. Toxic gases
may form when this product comes in contact with extreme heat.
SECTION V - HEALTH HAZARD DATA
INGESTION: Gastro-intestinal distress. In the unlikely event of ingestion, call a physician immediately and have the names of the ingredients available.
INHALATION: Vapor and/or spray mist may be harmful if inhaled. Vapor irritates eyes, nose, and throat. Sanding and grinding dusts may be harmful if inhaled. Repeated exposure to high vapor
concentrations may cause irritation of the respiratory system and permanent brain and nervous system damage.
CHRONIC OVEREXPOSURE: Avoid long-term and repeated contact. This product contains titanium dioxide. Animals inhaling massive quantities of titanium dioxide dust in a long-term study
developed lung tumors. Studies with humans involved in manufacture of this pigment indicate no increased risk of cancer from exposure. Potential for inhalation of titanium dioxide dusts from
coatings is very limited. Since overexposures are not expected, there is no significant hazard for man. This product contains methyl ethyl ketone (MEK). MEK has been shown to cause minor
embryotoxic/fetotoxic effects in laboratory animals exposed for prolonged periods at high concentrations via inhalation. The potential for human exposure to high concentrations is expected to
be low due to the irritating effects of MEK at low concentrations. This product contains a material which may be a fibrogenic dust. Long-term exposure to this material in the form of dust may
result in accumulation of the material in the lungs and in subsequent lung damage. This product contains toluene. Toluene inhalation in animals (greater than 1500 ppm) and intentional
inhalation of toluene-containing products by humans (e.g. glue) has caused adverse fetal development effects. This product contains carbon black which has been rated an IARC 2B carcinogen
due to animal data. Ethyl benzene has been reported by NTP to cause cancer in laboratory animals following a chronic (2-year) inhalation exposure. Dose levels of 75, 250 and 750 ppm were
used, with evidence of carcinogens found in the kidneys of rats and the lung and liver of mice at 750 ppm. The No Observed Effect Level (NOEL) was 75 ppm. The relevance of these findings to
humans is uncertain, but appropriate safeguards should be employed to reduce or eliminate inhalation exposure to ethyl benzene.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Eye watering, headaches, nausea, dizziness, and loss of coordination are indications that solvent levels are too high. Intentional misuse by
deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal. Redness, itching, burning sensation and visual disturbances may indicate excessive eye contact. Dryness, itching,
cracking, burning, redness, and swelling are conditions associated with excessive skin contact.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Not applicable.
WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
SECTION VI 鈥? First Aid
INGESTION: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Gently wipe out inside mouth to remove any residual material.
EYE CONTACT: In case of eye contact, remove contact lenses and flush eyes immediately with a gentle stream of lukewarm water for at least 15 minutes.
SKIN CONTACT: In case of skin contact, flush immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes followed by washing with soap and water.
INHALATION: If affected by inhalation of vapor or spray mist, remove to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration and other support measures as required.
OTHER: If ingestion, any type of overexposure or symptoms of overexposure occur during or following the use of this product, contact a poison control center, emergency room or physician
immediately; have Material Safety Data Sheet information available.

Safe handling of this product requires that all of the information on the MSDS be evaluated for specific work environments and conditions of use.
SECTION VIII - SPILL or LEAK PROCEDURES
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Provide maximum ventilation. Only personnel equipped with proper respiratory, skin, and eye protection should be
permitted in the area. Remove all sources of ignition. Take up spilled material with sand, vermiculite, or other noncombustible absorbent material and place in clean, empty containers for
disposal. Only the spilled material and the absorbent should be placed in this container.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: Waste material must be disposed of in accordance with federal, state, provincial, and local environmental control regulations. Empty containers should be
recycled or disposed of through an approved waste management facility.
SECTION IX - SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
EYE PROTECTION: Wear chemical-type splash goggles or full face shield when possibility exists for eye contact due to splashing or spraying liquid, airborne particles, or vapors.
SKIN PROTECTION: Wear protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Apron and gloves should be constructed of neoprene rubber. No specific permeation/degradation testing have been done
on protective clothing for this product. Recommendations for skin protection are based on infrequent contact with this product. For frequent contact or total immersion, contact a manufacturer of
protective clothing for appropriate chemical impervious equipment.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Overexposure to vapors may be prevented by ensuring proper ventilation controls, vapor exhaust or fresh air entry. A NIOSH- approved air-purifying respirator
with the appropriate chemical cartridges or a positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator may also reduce exposure. Read the respirator manufacturer's instructions and literature carefully to
determine the type of airborne contaminants against which the respirator is effective, its limitations, and how it is to be properly fitted and used.
OTHER EQUIPMENT: Clean contaminated clothing and shoes.
VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS: Provide general dilution or local exhaust ventilation in volume and pattern to keep the concentration of ingredients listed in Section 2 below the lowest
suggested exposure limits, the LEL below the stated limit, and to remove decomposition products during welding or flame cutting.

SECTION X - SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
HANDLING AND STORAGE PRECAUTIONS: Do not store above 120 degrees F. (48 degrees C.). Store large quantities in buildings designed and protected for storage of NFPA Class IB
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: Vapors may collect in low areas. If this material is part of a multiple component system, read the Material Safety Data Sheet (s) for the other component or
components before blending as the resulting mixture may have the hazards of all of its parts. Containers should be grounded when pouring. Avoid free fall of liquids in excess of a few inches.
