Manufacturer: As above
White Mineral Oil
ACGIH TWA: 5mg/m3 (mist)
ACGIH STEL: 10 mg/m3 (mist)
OSHA PEL: 5mg/m3 (mist)
Routes of Entry: (under normal conditions of use)
Skin Contact: Minor Eye Contact: Minor Ingestion: Major Inhalation: Minor
Effects of Short-Term (Acute) Exposure:
Inhalation: This product has a low vapour pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation hazard at ambient conditions. Caution should be taken to prevent aerosolization or misting of this product. The short term exposure limit for this product as an oil mist is 10mg/m3. Above this limit product may cause respiratory irritation or other pulmonary effects.
Skin Contact: This product is not expected to cause any skin irriation upon direct single or repeated and prolonged contact; however, similar chemical composition prodducts applied to the skin of laboratory animals resulted in minimal to slight dermal irritation.
Eye Contact: This product is minimally irritating to the eyes upon direct contact, based on testing of similar products and/or components.
Ingestion: Ingestion is relatively non-toxic unless aspiration occurs. Aspiration may lead to chemical pneumonitis that is characterized by pulmonary edema and hemorrhage and may be fatal. This product has laxative properties and may result in abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
Hazards Identification, continued
Effects of Long-Term (Chronic) Exposure:
Medical Conditions Aggravated By Exposure:
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes until irritation subsides. If material is hot, treat for thermal burns and take victim to hospital immediately.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. If material is hot, submerge injured area in cold water. If victim is severely burned, remove to a hospital immediately.
Inhalation: This material has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation exposure at ambient conditions. If victim has been exposed to vapors remove to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, a trained person should perform artificial respiration. Get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: May act as a laxative. Do not induce vomiting due to aspiration hazard. If vomiting occurs, lower head below knees to avoid aspiration. Seek medical attention immediately.
Flash point: 168oC
Autoignition temperature: Not applicable.
Lower Explosive Limit: Not established
Upper Explosion Limit: Not established
Sensitivity to Impact: Not determined.
Sensitivity to Static Discharge: Not determined.
Hazardous Combustion Products: Dense smoke may be generated while burning. Incomplete combustion can form carbon monoxide.
Extinguishing Media: Use dry chemical, foam, or carbon dioxide.
Fire Fighting Instructions: This material will burn although it is not easily ignited. Caution should be exercised when using water or foam as frothing may occur, especially if sprayed onto burning liquid. Do not enter confined fire space without proper personal protection. Use approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION (NFPA) HAZARD INDEX:
HEALTH: 0 - No unusual hazard.
FLAMMABILITY: 1 - Combustible if heated.
REACTIVITY: 0 - Not reactive when mixed with water.
SPECIFIC HAZARDS: None
Personal Protection: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in section 8 while cleaning the spill.
Environmental Precautions: Implement spill control plan. Keep materials from spilling into sewers, storm drains, surface water and soil.
Remedial Measures: Contain spillage and mop up with absorbant material. Dispose of in approved waste containers. Comply with all applicable governmental regulations on spill reporting and handling and disposal of waste. It is recommended that each user establish a spill prevention, control and counter measure plan. Such a plan should include procedures applicable to proper storage, control and clean-up of spills, including reuse or disposal as appropriate.
Handling Procedures: Do not transfer to unmarked containers. Ensure adequate ventilation. Have emergency equipment readily available. Keep containers closed when not in use. Keep away from sources of ignition. Wash face and hands thoroughly after handling and before eating, drinking, or using tobacco products.
Storage: Store in closed containers away from heat, sparks, open flame, or oxidizing materials. Fire extinguishers should be kept readily available.
Engineering Controls: Ventilation not required under normal use. If necessary, use general or local exhaust ventilation to maintain exposure below the exposure limits.
Respiratory Protection: Not required under nomal use. If vapour or mist is generated by heating use a NIOSH certified organic vapour respirator with dust and mist filter.
Skin protection: Not required under normal use. For prolonged or repeated skin exposure, wear impervious gloves and boots and/or other protective clothing according to circumstances.
Eye and Face Protection: Not required under normal use. If material is used in such a way that splashing could occur, use splash proof safety goggles.
Footwear: As required by worksite rules.
Other: Always wash hands and face with soap and water before eacting, drinking, smoking.
