blue WD-40 WORKS COMPANY Material Safety Data Sheet 1 - Chemical Product and Company Identification Manufacturer: WD-40 Company Trade Name: blue WORKS Address: 1061 Cudahy Place (92110) INDUSTRIAL P.O. Box 80607 GRADE DEGREASER San Diego, California, USA 92138-0607 Chemical Name: Organic Mixture Telephone: Emergency only: 1-888-324-7596 (PROSAR) Product Use: Cleaner, Degreaser Information: 1-888-234-7596 Chemical 1-800-424-9300 (Chemtrec) MSDS Date of Spills: 1-703-527-3887 (International Prepartation 02/05/10 Calls) : 2 - Hazards Identification Emergency Overview: WARNING! Contents under pressure. Flammable liquid and vapor. May be irritating to eyes, respiratory tract and skin. May be harmful if swallowed. Prolonged overexposure may cause liver, kidney and central nervous system effects. Use with adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat, sparks, flame and all other sources of ignition. Avoid eye contact and inhalation. Symptoms of Overexposure: Inhalation: Excessive inhalation can cause headache, drowsiness, nausea and lack of coordination. Can cause irritation of respiratory tract. Intentional abuse may be harmful or fatal. Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation. Prolonged contact may cause defatting, dermatitis, and drying of the skin. Harmful amounts of 2-butoxyethanol may be absorbed through the skin with symptoms similar to those under inhalation and ingestion. Eye Contact: May cause eye irritation with redness, tearing and blurred vision. Ingestion: Symptoms are similar to those of inhalation including pain, diarrhea and vomiting. May cause damage to the liver and kidneys. Chronic Effects: 2-butoxyethanol has caused lymphatic system, blood, liver and kidney damage. Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Pre-existing respiratory, skin, eye, liver, kidney and lymphatic disorders. Suspected Cancer Agent: Yes No X 3 - Composition/Information on Ingredients Ingredient CAS # Weight Percent Surfactants Proprietary 1-5% Isopropanol 67-63-0 1-5% 2-Butoxyethanol 111-76-2 5-10% Liquefied Petroleum Gas (propane, 68476-86-8 5-10% n-butane) or Isobutane propellant 75-28-5 Non-hazardous Ingredients Mixture Balance See Section 8 for Exposure Limits 4 - First Aid Measure Ingestion (Swallowed): Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician, poison control center, or the WD-40 Safety Hotline at 1-888-324-7596. Rinse mouth with water and give one eight-ounce glass of water to drink if the patient is conscious and responsive. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Skin Contact: Rinse skin with water for 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Get medical attention if irritation persists or symptoms of exposure develop. Inhalation (Breathing): Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention if irritation or symptoms persist. 5 - Fire Fighting Measures Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or foam. 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. Concentrate is a flammable liquid. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to remote ignition sources and flash back. A vapor and air mixture can create an explosion hazard in confined spaces. 6 - Accidental Release Measures Remove personnel from general area. Wear appropriate protective clothing (see Section 8). Ventilate the area and eliminate all sources of heat. 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: Store in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials and heat, sparks or open flame. Do not store in direct sunlight or above 120Â°F. U.F.C. (NFPA 30B) Level 1 Aerosol. 8 - Exposure Controls/Personal Protection Chemical Occupational Exposure Limits Surfactants None Established Isopropanol 200 ppm TWA, 400 ppm STEL ACGIH-TLV 400 ppm TWA OSHA PEL 2-Butoxyethanol 20 ppm TWA ACGIH TLV 50 ppm TWA (Skin) OSHA PEL Propane 1000 ppm TWA ACGIH TLV 1000 ppm TWA OSHA PEL n-Butane 1000 ppm TWA ACGIH TLV Isobutane 1000 ppm TWA ACGIH TLV Non-hazardous Ingredients None Established The Following Controls are Recommended for Normal Consumer Use of this Product Engineering Controls: Use in a well-ventilated area.
