Information: 1-888-234-7596 Chemical 1-800-424-9300 (Chemtrec) MSDS Date of Spills: 1-703-527-3887 (International Prepartation 8/6/09 Calls) : 2 - Hazards Identification Emergency Overview: DANGER! Flammable Aerosol. Contents under pressure. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Eye irritant. Avoid eye contact. Use with adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat, sparks 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 headaches, dizziness and nausea. Intentional abuse may be harmful or fatal. Skin Contact: Prolonged and/or repeated contact may produce mild irritation and defatting with possible dermatitis. Eye Contact: Contact may be irritating to eyes. May cause redness and tearing. Ingestion: This product has low oral toxicity. Swallowing may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The liquid contents are an aspiration hazard. If swallowed, can enter the lungs and may cause chemical pneumonitis. Chronic Effects: Prolonged overexposure may cause peripheral nervous system damage characterized by muscular weakness, loss of sensation in extremities and impaired gait. Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Preexisting eye, skin and respiratory conditions may be aggravated by exposure. Suspected Cancer Agent: Yes No X 3 - Composition/Information on Ingredients Ingredient CAS # Weight Percent n-Hexane 110-54-3 20-30 Isopropyl Alcohol (Isopropanol) 67-63-0 10-20 1, 1 Difluoroethane 75-37-6 40-60 See Section 8 for Exposure Limits 4 - First Aid Measure Ingestion (Swallowed): Aspiration Hazard. DO NOT induce vomiting. Call physician, poison control center or the WD-40 Safety Hotline at 1-888-324-7596 immediately. Eye Contact: Flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. If irritation develops or persists, get medical attention. Inhalation (Breathing): If irritation is experienced, move to fresh air. Give artificial respiration or oxygen, if needed. Get medical attention if irritation or other symptoms develop and persist. 5 - Fire Fighting Measures Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or foam. Do not use water jet or flooding amounts of water. Burning product will float on surface and spread fire. 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 from bursting cans. Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Contents under pressure. Keep away from ignition sources and open flames. Exposure of containers to extreme heat and flames can cause them to rupture often with violent force. Flammable liquid and vapor. 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. Leaking cans should be placed in a plastic bag or open pail until the pressure has dissipated. 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 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: Do not store above 120Â°F or in direct sunlight. U.F.C.
