Heath Effects
Acute – Swallowed Ingestion will result in gastrointestinal Upset. Data suggests that product should be regarded as moderately toxic by ingestion. Higer pH products may be corrosive to mucous membranes and the gastrointestinal tract.
Acute – Eye  May cause irreparable damage if not reated immediately. May cause severe eye irritation with potential for permanent injury or blindness via polonged exposure.  
Acute – Skin If at high temperature may cause chemical and/or thermal burns. Skin and mucous membrane irritation possible.
Acute – Inhaled   Inhalation may cause irritation of nose and mucous membranes, coughing and chest disomfort. This is an unlikely route of entry in normal commercial / industrial usage.
Chronic Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in burns to exposed areas.

Swallowed Induce vomiting. If patient is conscious rinse mouth to remove as much free product as possible and five a glass owater to drink. Guard against aspiration into the lungs. Consult a physician or Poisons Information Centre immediately.
Eye  Flush eyes thoroughly with water immediately and continue for at least twenty minutes. DO NOT attempt to remove contact lenses unless properly trained. Transport to Doctor or Hopital immediately.
Skin Remove contaminated clothing and wash aggected body areas with copious quantities of water. A light acid(eg vinegar,lemon juice or cloa drink) may be used to neutralise the alkaline natureof the product. if effects persist seek medical attention.
Inhaled Remvoe from exposure. If effects occur seek medical attention.
First Aid Facilities Ensure an eye bath and safety shower are available and ready for use.
Other Information  For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre.  Phone 131 126 or a doctor.

Advice to Doctor No specific antidote. Treat symptomatically based on judgement of doctor and individual reactions of patient.

Precautions for Use

  Formaldehyde  2.5 2     1.2   1
Other Exposure Info.

No exposure standards have been established for this material by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC).  However, exposure standards for ingredients are stated above.

TWA – the Time-Weighted Average airborne concentration over an eight hour working day, for a five day working week over an entire working life.  e.g. as above, the TWA for ammonia is 25ppm and for Formaldehyde is 1ppm.

STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) – the average airborne concentration over a 15 minute period which should not be exceeded at any time during a normal eight hour workday.  e.g. as above, the STEL for ammonia is 35ppm and for formaldehyde is 2ppm.

According to current knowledge these concentrations should neither impair the health of, nor cause undue discomfort to, nearly all workers. These Exposure Standards are guides to be used in the control of occupational health hazards.  All atmospheric contamination should be kept

to as low a level as is workable.  Exposure Standards should not be used as fine dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations of chemicals. 

They are not a measure of relative toxicity.

Eng. Controls   Use only in a well ventilated area.  Local exhaust ventilation will be required in confined areas or where natural ventilation is not sufficient to maintain concentrations below exposure limits.

Respirator Type  If engineering controls are not effective in controlling airborne exposure then an approved respirator with a replaceable ammonia vapour filter should be used.  Reference should be made to Australian Standards AS/NZS 1715, Selection, Use and Maintenance of Respiratory Protective Devices; and AS/NZS 1716, Respiratory Protective Devices; and AS/NZS 1716, Respiratory Protective Devices, in order to make any necessary changes for individual circumstances.
Eye Protection  Safety glasses with side shields or goggles should be worn as described in Australian Standard AS/ANZ 1337 – Eye Protectors for Industrial Applications.
Glove Type    Where skin contact is likely to be prolonged or repeated impervious PVC or nitrile rubber gloves are recommended.
Clothing    Suitable protective clothing should be worn e.g. cotton overalls buttoned at neck and wrist.  When large quantities are handled the use of plastic aprons and rubber boots is recommended.
Protective Equip.  
Work/Hygienic Practices

Ensure a high level of personal hygiene is maintained when using this product.  Always wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.

Flammability Non-flammable
Fire Hazards Non-flammable.  Residue after evaporation is combustible.      

Storage and Transport  
Storage Precautions   Store in containers that prevent free circulation of air. Store at temperature of between 0 to 40 degrees Celsius. No special transprot requirements. Store in a coll, dry area away from acids. Keep from freezing.
Transport    Not classified as a Dangerous Good, according to the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail.
Proper shipping  None Allocated
Spills and Disposal  
Spills & Leaks  Slippery when spilt – avoid accidents.  Increase ventilation.  Evacuate all unnecessary personnel.  Wear protective clothing to minimise skin and eye exposure.  If possible contain large spills, absorb with inert absorbent such as vermiculite, sand or dirt and place in suitably labelled steel container.  Mop up material and place in to the same container.  Hose down residues or minor spills with excess water.

Dispose should be in accordance with the relevant local, state and federal government regulations.  The recommended method of disposal is controlled incineration by approved agent.

Fire Explosions Hazard  
Fire/Explos. Hazard This product is non-flammable.  However, following evaporation of aqueous component, residue may burn if involved in a fire.

Fumes, smoke, ammonia and oxides or carbon (carbon monoxide and Combustion Byproducts     carbon dioxide).

Fire Fighting Procedures Fire fighters to wear Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and full protective clothing if risk of exposure to vapour or products of combustion to minimise skin exposure.  Water spray may be used to cool down heat exposed containers.
Extinguishing Media  Use appropriate fire extinguisher for surrounding environment.
Hazchem Code None allocated.

Toxicology Oral LD50+ not available, Dermal LD50- not available, Inhalation LC50= not available 
Environment Protection Clean spills immediatley and disposal of waste should be in accordance of all local, state and federal regulations.
