material that is applied to the skin and the speed and thoroughness that it is removed.
Symptoms include redness, itching, and burning of the skin. Repeated or prolonged skin
contact can produce moderate irritation (dermatitis).
Ingestion If swallowed, this material may irritate the mucous membranes of the mouth, throat, and
esophagus. It can be readily absorbed by the stomach and intestinal tract. Symptoms
include a burning sensation of the mouth and esophagus, nausea, vomiting, dizziness,
staggering gait, drowsiness, loss of consciousness and delirium, as well as additional central
nervous system (CNS) effects.

Due to its light viscosity, there is a danger of aspiration into the lungs during swallowing and
subsequent vomiting. Aspiration can result in severe lung damage or death. Cardiovascular
effects include shallow rapid pulse and pallor followed by flushing. Also, progressive CNS
depression, respiratory insufficiency and ventricular fibrillation may result in death.
Chronic Health Effects Prolonged and/or repeated contact may cause skin irritation and inflammation. Symptoms
Summary include defatting, redness, blistering, lesions, and scaly dermatitis. Chronic effects of
ingestion and subsequent aspiration into the lungs may cause pneumatocele (lung cavity)
formation and chronic lung dysfunction. Repeated or prolonged overexposure to solvents
can cause brain or other nervous system damage. The symptoms can include the loss of
memory, the loss of intellectual capacity and the loss of coordination.

Repeated and prolonged overexposure to n-Hexane has been associated with peripheral

Hazardous Combustion Burning or excessive heating may produce smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and
Products possibly other harmful gases/vapors.
Special Properties Flammable Liquid! This material releases vapors at or below ambient temperatures. When
mixed with air in certain proportions and exposed to an ignition source, its vapor can cause a
flash fire. Use only with adequate ventilation. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel
long distances along the ground to an ignition source and flash back. A vapor and air
mixture can create an explosion hazard in confined spaces such as sewers. If container is
not properly cooled, it can rupture in the heat of a fire.
Extinguishing Media SMALL FIRE: Use dry chemicals, carbon dioxide, foam, water fog, or inert gas (nitrogen).
LARGE FIRE: Use foam, water fog, or water spray. Water fog and spray are effective in
cooling containers and adjacent structures. However, water can cause frothing and/or may
not extinguish the fire. Water can be used to cool the external walls of vessels to prevent
excessive pressure, autoignition or explosion. DO NOT use a solid stream of water directly
on the fire as the water may spread the fire to a larger area.
Firefighters must use full bunker gear including NIOSH-approved positive pressure

Fighters
decomposition products and oxygen deficiencies. Evacuate area and fight the fire from a
maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Cover pooling liquid
with foam. Containers can build pressure if exposed to radiant heat; cool adjacent containers
with flooding quantities of water until well after the fire is out. Withdraw immediately from the
area if there is a rising sound from a venting safety device or discoloration of vessels, tanks,
or pipelines. Be aware that burning liquid will float on water. Notify appropriate authorities if
liquid enter sewers or waterways.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Take proper precautions to ensure your own health and safety before attempting spill control or clean-up. For
more specific information, refer to the Emergency Overview on Page 1, Exposure Controls and Personal
Protection in Section 8 and Disposal Considerations in Section 13 of this MSDS.
Flammable Liquid! Release causes an immediate fire or explosion hazard. Evacuate all
non-essential personnel from immediate area and establish a "regulated zone" with site
control and security. A vapor-suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors. Eliminate all
ignition sources. All equipment used when handling this material must be grounded. Stop the
leak if it can done without risk. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Remove
spillage immediately from hard, smooth walking areas. Prevent spilled material from entering
waterways, sewers, basements, or confined areas. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand, or
other non-combustible material and transfer to appropriate waste containers. Use clean,
non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material.

For large spills, secure the area and control access. Prevent spilled material from entering
sewers, storm drains, other drainage systems, and natural waterways. Dike far ahead of a
liquid spill to ensure complete collection. Water mist or spray may be used to reduce or
disperse vapors; but, it may not prevent ignition in closed spaces. This material will float on

SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
For other health-related information, refer to the Emergency Overview on Page 1 and the Hazards Identification
in Section 3 of this MSDS.
Toxicity Data n-Hexane:
This material contains n-hexane. Long-term or repeated exposure to n-hexane can cause
peripheral nerve damage. Initial symptoms are numbness of the fingers and toes. Also,
motor weakness can occur in the digits, but may also involve muscles of the arms, thighs and
forearms. The onset of these symptoms may be delayed for several months to a year after
the beginning of exposure.

Heptane, all isomers:
n-Heptane was not mutagenic in the Salmonella/microsome (Ames) assay and is not
considered to be carcinogenic.

Cyclohexane:


MSDS No. Revision Date
19041 Page Number: 7
10/21/2003 Continued on Next Page
Hexane
Cyclohexane can cause eye, skin and mucous membrane irritation, CNS depressant and
narcosis at elevated concentrations. In experimental animals exposed to lethal
concentrations by inhalation or oral route, there was generalized vascular damage and
severe degenerative changes in the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and brain. Cyclohexane does
not act as a promotor for tumors on mice when exposed to dimethylbenzanthracene. Further,
it did not induce unscheduled DNA synthesis in cultured human lymphocytes. It is not
mutagenic in the Salmonella/microsome (Ames) or the mouse lymphoma L5178Y assays,
with or without metabolic activation. However, it did increase the number of chromosomal
aberrations in bone marrow cells of rats exposed to between 100 and 300 ppm for six
hours/day for five days. These chromosomal aberrations did not appear to be dose-related.



SECTION 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Ecotoxicity data are not available for this product. This mixture contains components that are
Ecotoxicity
potentially toxic to freshwater and saltwater ecosystems.
Environmental Fate This mixture will normally float on water with its lighter components evaporating rapidly. In
stagnant or slow-flowing waterways, a hydrocarbon layer can cover a large surface area. As a
result, this covering layer might limit or eliminate natural atmospheric oxygen transport into the
water. With time, if not removed, oxygen depletion in the waterway might be enough to cause
a fish kill or create an anaerobic environment. This coating action can also be harmful or fatal
to plankton, algae, aquatic life, and water birds.




SECTION 13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Hazard characteristic and regulatory waste stream classification can change with product use. Accordingly, it is
the responsibility of the user to determine the proper storage, transportation, treatment and/or disposal
methodologies for spent materials and residues at the time of disposition.
Maximize material recovery for reuse or recycling. Recovered non-usable material may be
regulated by US EPA as a hazardous waste due to its ignitibility (D001) and/or its toxic
(D018) characteristics. In addition, conditions of use may cause this material to become a
hazardous waste, as defined by Federal or State regulations. It is the responsibility of the
user to determine if the material is a hazardous waste at the time of disposal. Transportation,
treatment, storage, and disposal of waste material must be conducted in accordance with
RCRA regulations (see 40 CFR Parts 260 through 271). State and/or local regulations might
be even more restrictive. Contact the RCRA/Superfund Hotline at (800) 424-9346 or your
regional US EPA office for guidance concerning case specific disposal issues.
