Box 80607 WHITE LITHIUM GREASE San Diego, California, USA 92138-0607 Chemical Name: Organic Mixture Telephone: Emergency only: 1-888-324-7596 Product Use: Cleaner, Lubricant (PROSAR) Information: 1-888-324-7596 Chemical Spills: 1-800-424-9300 MSDS Date Of Preparation: 08/07/09 (Chemtrec) 1-703-527-3887 (International Calls) 2 - Hazards Identification Emergency Overview: DANGER! Flammable aerosol. Contents under pressure. Combustible Liquid and Vapor. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. If swallowed, may be aspirated and cause lung damage. May cause eye, skin and respiratory tract irritation. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat, sparks, flames and all other sources of ignition. Symptoms of Overexposure: Inhalation: Mist or vapor can irritate the throat and lungs. High concentrations may cause nasal and respiratory irritation and central nervous system effects such as headache, dizziness and nausea. Intentional abuse may be harmful or fatal. Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation with short-term exposure with redness, itching and burning of the skin. Prolonged and/or repeated contact may produce defatting and dermatitis. Eye Contact: Contact may be irritating to eyes. May cause redness, stinging, swelling and tearing. Ingestion: This product has low oral toxicity. If swallowed, this material may cause irritation of the mouth, throat and esophagus. Swallowing may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness and other central nervous system effects. This product is an aspiration hazard. If swallowed, can enter the lungs and may cause chemical pneumonitis, severe lung damage and death. Chronic Effects: Prolonged or repeated skin contact may defat the skin resulting in irritation and dermatitis. Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Preexisting eye, skin and respiratory conditions may be aggravated by exposure. Suspected Cancer Agent: Yes X No This product contains small amount of titanium dioxide, which is listed by IARC as a suspected carcinogen (Group 2B). Titanium dioxide only presents a risk of cancer by inhalation of very fine dust. In this product, the titanium dioxide is incorporated into the grease and is not present as a respirable dust. There is no exposure to respirable titanium dioxide dust in the normal use of this product. 3 - Composition/Information on Ingredients Ingredient CAS # Weight Percent Petroleum Solvents 64742-47-8 25-35% 64742-88-7 Hydrotreated Heavy 64742-52-5 5-10% Naphthenic Distillate Calcium Sulfonate Proprietary 1-5% Titanium Dioxide 13463-67-7 <1% Propellant (propane, 74-98-6/106-97-8 40-50% n-butane) See Section 8 for Exposure Limits 4 - First Aid Measures Ingestion (Swallowed): Aspiration Hazards. DO NOT induce vomiting. Call physician, poison control center or WD-40 Safety Hotline at 1-888-324-7596 immediately. Eye Contact: Flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses if present after the first 5 minutes and continue flushing. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. If irritation develops and persists, get medical attention. Inhalation (Breathing): If irritation is experienced, move to fresh air. Get medical attention if irritation or other symptoms develop or persist. 5 - Fire Fighting Measures Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or foam. Cool fire exposed containers with water. Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Firefighters should always wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Cool fire-exposed containers with water. Use shielding to protect against bursting cans. Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Contents under pressure. Keep away from ignition source and open flame. Exposure of containers to extreme heat and flames can cause them to rupture often with violent force. Flammable liquid and vapor. This material can release flammable vapors when heated above ambient temperatures. Vapors can cause a flash fire. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along surfaces to remote ignition sources and flash back. A vapor and air mixture can create an explosion hazard in confined spaces. 6 - Accidental Release Measures Wear appropriate protective clothing (see Section 8). Eliminate all sources of ignition and ventilate area. Contain and collect liquid with an inert absorbent and place in a container for disposal. Clean spill area thoroughly. Report spills to authorities as required. 7 - Handling and Storage Handling: Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged contact with skin. Avoid breathing vapors or aerosols. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat, sparks, pilot lights, hot surfaces and open flames. Unplug electrical tools, motors and appliances before spraying or bringing the can near any source of electricity. Electricity can burn a hole in the can and cause contents to burst into flames. To avoid serious burn injury, do not let the can touch battery terminals, electrical connections on motors or appliances or any other source of electricity. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Keep containers closed when not in use. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not puncture, crush or incinerate containers, even when empty. Storage: Store in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials. Do not store in direct sunlight or above 120Â°F. U.F.C (NFPA 30B) Level 3 Aerosol. 8 - Exposure Controls/Personal Protection Chemical Occupational Exposure Limits Petroleum Solvents 1200 mg/mÂ³ TWA Supplier Recommended (total hydrocarbon) Hydrotreated Heavy Naphthenic 5 mg/m3 TWA, 10 mg/m3 STEL ACGIH TLV Distillate 5 mg/m3 TWA OSHA PEL Calcium Sulfonate None Established Titanium Dioxide 15 mg/m3 (total dust) TWA OSHA PEL 10 mg/m3 TWA ACGIH TLV Propane 1000 ppm TWA OSHA PEL 1000 ppm TWA ACGIH TLV (aliphatic hydrocarbon gas) n-Butane 1000 ppm TWA ACGIH TLV (aliphatic hydrocarbon gas) The following Controls are Recommended for Normal Consumer Use of this Product Engineering Controls: Use in a well-ventilated area Personal Protection: Eye Protection: Avoid eye contact.
