These products are all "water-based" glycol solutions. As such, toxicity is minimal. These products are considered "non-hazardous" by most national health and safety regulatory bodies.
Tests conducted by independent laboratories have confirmed the non-hazardous nature of these liquids. The most recent material test returned the following results:
Chromium (Cr) not detected
Cadmium (Cd) not detected
Mercury (Hg) not detected
Arsenic (As) not detected
IV. FLAMMABILITY DATA
Due to the fact that de-ionized water forms the base for all these solutions, no detectable fire or explosion hazard exists. Flammability is undetermined due to the lack of a flash point or auto-ignition temperature. Extinguishing techniques and/or media should be determined by the fire/safety personnel on site: water, foam, CO2 and dry chemical media will not cause an adverse chemical or physical reaction with these products.
V. HEALTH HAZARD DATA
No exposure limits have been determined for these products, nor for any of the ingredients from which they are formulated.
Swallowing has no adverse effects in low doses. Higher doses may induce nausea and vomiting, but with no long-term toxicity. Inhalation produces no adverse effects when used according to standard practices. Continuous exposure to highly concentrated fog may lead to throat/respiratory tract irritation. Under such conditions, irritation should subside immediately upon moving to an area of low fog concentration. The fog produced by these products will be adequately filtered by any 10 - 20 micron filtration system. Contact with the liquid may cause minimal, temporary irritation to exposed skin areas. Eye contact with the liquid may also cause minimal, temporary irritation. In all cases of contact with the liquid, flushing of the exposed area with water is sufficient. No contra-indications may be determined, as the ingredients have no independently toxicological effects, even when considered in combination with possible pre-existing physical conditions or dietary/medicinal regimens. Treatment of egregious overexposure may be determined by health personnel, with principal attention given to the control of symptoms and overall clinical status.
VI. SPILL AND DISPOSAL PROCEDURES
Spills will result in a slippery film on most surfaces. Flushing with water is a sufficient response. Liquids may be safely disposed according to standard waste disposal methods.
VII. REACTIVITY DATA
The liquids described herein are stable formulas. No avoidable reactive risks can be determined through an extrapolation of all possible uses. Exposure to air, heat, water and oxidants poses no risk for reaction. Non-standard combustion of these formulas may produce aldehydes, ketones, carbon dioxide and/or carbon monoxide.
The products covered by this MSDS are not regulated by any international regulating bodies, including the WHMIS. As such, they may be classified as non-hazardous. In view of the above MSDS, the most critical special information concerns protecting employees from irritation which may accompany long-term exposure to the products. They should be enable to avoid repeated contact with skin, eyes and/or clothing. Rubber or otherwise coated gloves and eye protection should be worn when handling large volumes or quantities of these products.
