Section 9 - Toxicology and Health Information
Routes of Absorption: Ingestion
Warning Statements and Warning Properties:
Do not take internally, prolonged contact with the eyes may cause irritation. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause irritation.
Human Threshold Response Data:
Odor Threshold: No data
Irritation Threshold: No data
Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health: The IDLH concentration has not been established for this product.
Signs, Symptoms and Effects of Exposure:
Acute: No significant adverse effects to health would be expected to occur from inhalation with normal use of this product due to
its low volatility and vapor pressure.
Chronic: There are no known or reported effects from chronic exposure.
Acute: Contact with the skin is not expected to produce appreciable irritation. Skin contact may cause transient redness if not
washed off and left on the skin for an extended period of time. This irritant effect would not be expected to result in
permanent damage.
Chronic: There are no known or reported effects from chronic exposure except for effects similar to those experienced from single
Propylene glycol has not caused any eye injury in humans or laboratory animals. However, contact with the
eyes may cause transient eye redness, stinging, twitching and tearing if not washed out and left in the eye for an
extended period of time. No corneal involvement or visual impairment would be expected.
Acute: Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal discomfort with any or all of the following symptoms:
nausea, vomiting, lethargy or diarrhea.
Chronic: There are no known or reported effects from chronic exposure except for effects similar to
those experienced for single exposure.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure
There are no medical conditions known to be aggravated by exposure.
Interactions with Other Chemicals which Enhance Toxicity
There are no chemicals known to enhance the toxicity of the product.

Irritation: May cause mild skin and eye irritation from prolonged acute exposure.
Acute Target Organ Toxicity
No organs known to be damaged from exposure to this product. May cause mild eye and
skin irritation from prolonged acute exposure.
Chronic Target Organ Toxicity
There are no known or reported effects from repeated exposure.
Reproductive and Developmental Toxicity
There are no known or reported effects on reproductive function or fetal development from
exposure to this product.
Continuous breeding reproduction studies were conducted using mice and rats. The animals were
fed propylene glycol in their feed or water. No adverse effects on reproduction were found in either
species. Propylene glycol has been tested and was found to be non-teratogenic in mice, and it does
not affect maternal or embryo-toxicity in mice, rats, hamsters, or rabbits.
This product is not known or reported to be carcinogenic by any reference source including IARC, OSHA, NTP or EPA.
Propylene glycol has been tested for carcinogenicity in rats and mice. It was found to be non-carcinogenic in both a feeding study
using rats and in a skin application study using mice.
This product is not known or reported to be mutagenic.
Propylene glycol has been tested in a battery of in vitro and in vivo mutagenicity and genotoxicity assays. The weight of evidence
from these assays suggests that propylene glycol is not mutagenic.
Aquatic Toxicity
Goldfish (Carassius auratus), 24 hr LC 50: > 5000 mg/1 (measured, static)
Rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri), 24 hr Acute
lethality/mortality (non-LC50 testing): > 50,000 mg/1 (nominal, static)
Brine shrimp, 24 hr. LC50: > 10,000 mg/1 (nominal, static)

Water Release:
This material is heavier than and soluble in water. Notify all downstream water users of possible contamination. Divert water flow around spill
if possible and safe to do so. If unable to divert, create an overflow dam to contain material. Remove with a vacuum systems or pumping
device for treatment and/or disposal. Continue to handle as described in land spill.
Land Spill:
Create a dike or trench to contain materials. Spill materials may be absorbed using sand or vermiculite.
Do not place spill materials back in their original container. Containerize and label all spill materials properly.
