Section VI Health Hazard Data
Route of Entry: Inhalation? YES Skin? YES Ingestion? YES
Carcinogenicity: NTP? NO IARC Monographs? NO OSHA Regulated? NO
Signs and Symptons of Exposure: Drying of skin, eye irritation, headache, dizziness, nausea
Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Never administer adrenalin following over exposure to Trichloroethylene. Increased sensitivity of the heart to adrenalin may be caused by overexposure.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
EYE AND SKIN CONTACT: Flush with plenty of water.
INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult administer oxygen.
INGESTION: If conscious, drink large quantities of water.
Health Hazards (Acute and Chronic)
|LC-50 Inhalation Rat: 8,000 ppm/7 hours
LC-50 Dermal Rabbit: 15g/kg (2)
LD-50 Ingestion Rat: 10-12g/kg (see Sec.5)
Fish. LC-50: Not determined
Skin: Not significantly toxic
Ingestion: Not significantly toxic
Acute: Primarily a central nervous system depressant. Inhalation can cause irritation of the respiratory system, dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, headache, loss of coordination and equilibrium, unconsciousness and even death in confined or poorly ventilated areas. Depression of the circulatory system has been reported as a result of overexposure. The heart may be sensitized by 1,1,1-Trichloroethylene, and ventricular arrhythmia may be induced by epinephrine administration.
Liquid splashed in the eyes can result in discomfort, pain and irritation. Prolonged or repeated contact with liquid on the skin can cause irritation and dermatitis. The problem may be accentuated by liquid becoming trapped against the skin by contaminated clothing and shoes. Skin absorption can occur.
Chronic: Prolonged exposure above the OSHA permissible exposure limits may result in liver and kidney damage. 1,1,1-Trichloroethylene has been extensively studied for cancer both in the U.S. and Europe by government, industry and academia in multiple species and biological test specimens. Recent reviews of this data by the Science Advisory Board to EPA's carcinogen assessment group concluded that there was no evidence to support the carcinogenicity of 1,1,1-Trichloroethylene causes an increased cancer incidence in humans.
Section VII Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING
Steps to Be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled: Dike area and absorb spilled material with sawdust or vermiculite. Dispose of waste in accordance with all federal, state and local regulations. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors during clean-up. If necessary use self-contained breathing apparatus.
Waste Disposal Method: In accordance with all local, state and federal regulations. Do not flush to sewer. Do not incinerate.
Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storing: Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid Contact with skin or eyes. Do not take internally. Do not use in confined areas.
Other precautions: Avoid contact with strong oxidants. Avoid prolonged contact with white metals (i.e. Aluminum, Lead). Keep container tightly closed when not in use.
Respiratory Protection (Specify Type): NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus for concentrations above TLV Limits (not necessary with normal use.)
Ventilation Mechanical (Genere): Sufficient to maintain workable concentration below permissable exposure limit.
Protective Gloves: Polyethylene, Neoprene or Polyvinyl alcohol.
Eye Protection: Splash proof goggles.
Other Protective Clothing or Equipment: Eye-wash fountain in immediate area. Personnel protective clothing and use of equipment must be in accordance with 29CFR 1910.133 and 1910.134.
Work/Hygenic Practices: Do not eat, drink or smoke in work areas.
