See Section 8 for any additional exposure limit guidelines. Chemical Name CAS # PERCENT OSHA PEL Ammonium Hydroxide 7664-41-7 .00129 TWA 50 ppm ACGIH TLV 25ppm SECTION 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION EMERGENCY OVERVIEW HMIS RATING: HEALTH -- 1 FLAMMABILITY -- 0 REACTIVITY -- 0 See SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION for personal protective equipment recommendations. POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS BY ROUTE OF ENTRY EYE: No irritation hazard in normal industrial use. SKIN: No irritation hazard in normal industrial use. INHALATION: Can cause minor respiratory irritation. INGESTION: Ingestion is not an anticipated route of exposure. LONG-TERM (CHRONIC) HEALTH EFFECTS TARGET ORGAN(S): No organs known to be damaged from exposure to this product REGULATED CARCINOGEN STATUS: Unless noted below, this product does not contain regulated levels of NTP, IARC, ACGIH, or OSHA listed carcinogens. EXISTING HEALTH CONDITIONS AFFECTED BY EXPOSURE: No known effects on other illnesses H-RX0586 Page 2 of 4 02-01-2008 MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET __________________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES IF IN EYES: None expected to be needed, however, use an eye wash to remove a chemical from your eye regardless of the level of hazard IF ON SKIN: Wash with soap and water. IF VAPORS INHALED: This material does not present a hazard if inhaled. Remove individual to fresh air after an airborne exposure if any symptoms develop, as a precautionary measures IF SWALLOWED: No hazard in normal industrial use. Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical attention if symptoms develop. Provide medical care provider with this MSDS. Induce vomiting as a last measure. Induced vomiting may lead to aspiration of the material into the lungs potentially causing chemical pneumonitis that may be fatal. SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES FLASH POINT: Non flammable AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not established LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (% in air): Not established UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (% in air): Not established EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use water spray, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: There is a possibility of pressure buildup in closed containers when heated. Water spray may be used to cool the containers. SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS: Persons exposed to products of combustion should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective equipment. HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon dioxide, Carbon monoxide SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES SPECIAL PROTECTION: No adverse health effects expected from the clean-up of spilled material. Follow personal protective equipment recommendations found in Section 8 of this MSDS. CLEAN-UP: Dike if necessary, contain spill with inert absorbent and transfer to containers for disposal. Keep spilled product out of sewers, watersheds, or water systems. Transport Emergency Phone Number (CHEMTREC): 1-800-424-9300 SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling: No special handling instructions due to toxicity. This product contains limited amounts of residual monomer. Under normal handling and use conditions the residual monomer should not present a hazard. In storage the monomer will migrate from the emulsion and establish an equilibrium between the headspace in the storage container and the liquid emulsion. Levels in excess of acceptable exposures can accumulate in non-vented headspaces above the emulsion. All procedures appropriate for a confined space entry should be completed prior to performing any work in a bulk storage tank. Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. Consult the Technical Data Sheet for specific storage instructions. H-RX0586 Page 3 of 4 02-01-2008 MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET __________________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION EYE PROTECTION: No special requirements under normal industrial use SKIN PROTECTION: Not normally considered a skin hazard. Where use can result in skin contact, practice good personal hygiene. Wash hands and other exposed areas with mild soap and water before eating, drinking and when leaving work GLOVES: Not normally required. Use nitrile gloves if conditions warrant. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: No respiratory protection required under normal conditions of use. Respirators should be selected by and used following requirements found in OSHA's respirator standard (29 CFR 1910.134). VENTILATION: No exposure limits exist for the constituents of this product. No engineering controls are likely to be required to maintain operator comfort under normal conditions of use.
