Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:NO Ingestion:YES
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:ACUTE: INHALATION: FUMES DURING
SOLDERING MAY IRRITATE MUCOUS MEMBRANES AND RESPIRATORY SYSTEM.
HIGH CONCENTRATIONS CAN CAUSE HEADACHE, DIZZINESS, NARCOSIS, AND
NAUSEA. SKIN CONTACT: LOCAL IRRITATION. SKIN ABSORPTION: NONE. EYE
CONTACT: IRRITATION FROM CONTACT WITH LIQUID AND SMOKE FROM
SOLDERING. INGESTION: BURNING SENSATION IN THE DIGESTIVE TRACT.
CHRONIC: PROLONGED OR REPEATED SKIN CONTACT CAN RESULT IN A RASH.
BREATHING VAPORS CAN RESULT IN HEADACHE, DIZZINESS, NARCOSIS, AND
IRRITATION OF THE MUCOUS MEMBRANES. SMOKE DURING SOLDERING WILL
CONTAIN ROSIN WHICH IS AN ALLERGEN AND CAN CAUSE RES PIRATORY
SYSTEM IRRITATION AND DAMAGE.
Explanation of Carcinogenicity:NOT LISTED AS A CARCINOGEN.
Effects of Overexposure:INHALATION: IRRITATION HEADACHE, DIZZINESS,
NARCOSIS, NAUSEA. SKIN: IRRITATION. EYES: IRRITATION. INGESTION:
BURNING SENSATION IN THE DIGESTIVE TRACT.
Medical Cond Aggravated by Exposure:CHEMICAL HYPERSENSENSITIVITY,
ASTHMA AND OTHER RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS.CONTINUED BREATHING HIGH
CONC. OF ALCOHOL VAPORS CONTAINING ROSIN, AN ALLERGEN, CAN AFFECT
LIVER AND CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.

First Aid

First Aid:EYE CONTACT: FLUSH WITH PLENTY OF WATER AND GET MEDICAL
ATTENTION. REMOVE ROSIN FROM AROUND EYES WITH A DILUTE ETHANOL
SOLUTION. SKIN CONTACT: WASH THOROUGLY WITH SOAP AND WATER.
INHALATION: REMOVE VI CTIM TO FRESH AIR. INGESTION: INDUCE VOMITING
AND GET PROMPT MEDICAL ATTENTION. GENERAL: SEEK MEDICAL ASSISTANCE
FOR FURTHER TREATMENT, OBSERVATION AND SUPPORT IF NEEDED.

Lower Limits:2.0
Upper Limits:12.0
Extinguishing Media:CARBON DIOXIDE, ALCOHOL FOAM, DRY CHEMICAL.
Fire Fighting Procedures:USE WATER SPRAY TO COOL FIRE EXPOSED
CONTAINERS AND CONTROL VAPORS.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:A MODERATE EXPLOSION HAZARD EXISTS WHEN
EXPOSED TO HEAT OR FLAMES. EXPLOSION SENSITIVITY: IMPACT - NONE
IDENTIFIED. STATIC DISCHARGE SENSITIVITY - YES.

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:REMOVE ALL IGNITION SOURCES. PROVIDE ADEQUATE
VENTILATION. ABSORBANTS, SUCH AS VERMICULITE, CAN BE USED TO SOAK
UP THE SPILLED LIQUID. CLEAN UP RESIDUAL WITH ALKALINE DETERGENT.

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:STORE AWAY FROM SOURCES OF IGNITION.
STORAGE AT TEMPERATURES BELOW 40F (4C) MAY RESULT IN PRECIPITATION
OF SOME ROSIN. OPEN CONTAINERS CAUTIOUSLY TO ALLOW VENTING OF ANY
INTERNAL PRESSURE.
Other Precautions:CAUTION: EMPTY CONTAINERS MAY CONTAIN PRODUCT
RESIDUE. OBSERVE ALL LABEL PRECAUTIONS.

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:WHEN VENTILATION IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO REMOVE
FUMES FROM THE BREATHING ZONE, A NIOSH APPROVED RESPIRATOR SHOULD
BE WORN.
Ventilation:PROVIDE ADEQUATE VENTILATION (GENERAL AND/OR LOCAL) AS
NECESSARY TO MEET EXPOSURE REQUIREMENTS. LOCAL EXHAUST PREFERED TO
MINIMIZE SMOKE AND FUMES IN WORK AREA
Protective Gloves:PLASTIC OR RUBBER GLOVES WHERE NECESSARY TO AVOID
SKIN CONTACT.
Eye Protection:SAFETY GLASSES OR GOGGLES WHEN SPLASHING IS LIKELTO
OCCUR.
Other Protective Equipment:WEAR IMPERMEABLE APRON WHEN SPLASHING IS
LIKELY TO OCCUR.
Work Hygienic Practices:WASH HANDS THOROUGHLY BEFORE EATING OR SMOKING.
