2.2 Label elements

0 2 HEALTH 2 0 FLAMMABILITY - continued H360, H350 - California Proposition 65 Warning: This product contains a component (or components) that may cause cancer and genetic effects in a concentration greater than or equal to 0.1%. H371 - May cause liver damage. (Specific target organ toxicity, single exposure, category 2) H413 - May cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment. Precautionary Codes: P202 - This product should only by used by persons trained in the safe handling of hazardous chemicals. P260 - Do not breathe dust. P262 - Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing. P264 - Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not take internally. Eye wash and safety equipment should be readily available. P280 - Protective gloves must be worn to prevent skin contact. P284 - Respiratory Protection: If workplace exposure limit(s) of product or any component is exceeded (see TLV/PEL), or a risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate, use of a NIOSH/MSHA approved air supplied respirator is advised. Use a full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN14387) respirator cartridges in absence of proper environmental control. Always use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU). Engineering and/or administrative controls should be implemented to reduce exposure. P338 - Eye contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water. After initial flushing, remove and contact lenses and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Assure adequate flushing by separating the eyelids with fingers. P340 - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention. P360 - Skin contact: Immediately wash skin with soap and plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. P404 - Store in a tightly closed container.

Hazard statements

H302 - Harmful if swallowed. (Acute toxicity, oral, category 4) H312 - Harmful if absorbed through skin. (Acute toxicity, dermal, category 4) H315 - Irritating to skin. (Skin corrosion/irritation, category 2) H332 - Harmful if inhaled. (Acute toxicity, inhalation, category 4) H350 - This product is or contains a component that is classified (ACGIH, IARC, NTP, OSHA) as a possible cancer hazard. (Carcinogenicity, category 1B) H351 - The consistent finding in animal studies with PCB’s is that they produce liver injury and are suspected of causing cancer following prolonged and repeated exposure by any route, if the exposure is of sufficient degree and duration. Liver injury is produced first, and by exposures that are less than those reported to cause cancer in rodents. Therefore, exposure by all routes should be kept sufficiently low to prevent liver injury. (Carcinogenicity, category 1B) - continued

2.3 Other hazards

2.2.1 - Symptom of Exposure Health/Environment May cause liver damage. (Specific target organ toxicity, single exposure, category 2) Overexposure may cause reproductive disorders based on tests with laboratory animals. The consistent finding in animal studies with PCB’s is that they produce liver injury and are suspected of causing cancer following prolonged and repeated exposure by any route, if the exposure is of sufficient degree and duration. Liver injury is produced first, and by exposures that are less than those reported to cause cancer in rodents. Therefore, exposure by all routes should be kept sufficiently low to prevent liver injury. (Carcinogenicity, category 1B) May cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment. (H413) Prolonged or repeated contact can result in defatting and drying of the skin which may result in skin irritation or dematitis (rash).

Potential health effects

May be irritating to eyes. Irritating to skin. (Skin corrosion/irritation, category 2) Harmful if absorbed through skin. (Acute toxicity, dermal, category 4) Irritating to mucous membrane and upper respiratory system. Harmful if inhaled. (Acute toxicity, inhalation, category 4) Harmful if swallowed.
