3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
3.1 EMERGENCY OVERVIEW:
White, odorless solid, powder (See Section 9). Avoid prolonged contact with eyes or skin and dust inhalation (See Section 3 below). Avoid contact with strong oxidizers and reducers. Material becomes molten and free flowing at softening point. Protect against decomposition products of hydrogen chloride and oxides of carbon (See Sections 5, 7 and 10).
HMIS RATING:       HEALTH: 1       FLAMMABILITY: 0            REACTIVITY: 1        PPE: B
3.2 POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
This particular product has not been shown to have adverse effects in years of manufacture and use. Chlorinated paraffins are a class of compounds that are similarly manufactured but vary in molecular structure by carbon chain length and degree of chlorination.
EYE: Repeated or prolonged contact may cause eye irritation.
SKIN: Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin irritation.
INGESTION: No hazard in normal industrial use.
INHALATION: Dust may be irritating to the respiratory tract.
CHRONIC EFFECTS: Not listed as human carcinogen by OSHA, IARC, or NTP.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS: Eye, skin or respiratory tract irritation.
See TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION (Section 11)
3.3 POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS:
AQUATIC ENVIRONMENT: In long-term (60 day) fish studies the NOEL is greater than the solubility limit.
NON-AQUATIC ENVIRONMENT: Based on available animal studies this product has not been classified as Dangerous to the Non-aquatic Environment.
See ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION (Section 12)
 
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE: Hold eyelid open; flush with large volume of water; continue for 15 minutes. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.
SKIN: Brush powder from skin; wash area with mild soap and water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention. If molten material is on skin, cool rapidly with cold water. Do not attempt to peel from skin. Seek medical attention for thermal burn.
INGESTION: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting . Rinse mouth and dilute with water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.
NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: Treat as exposure to any fine powder. Consider powder as organic chemical. (See Section 3 for observable SIGNS/SYMPTOMS).
 
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
