Risk Phrases: 36/37/38 43
Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. May cause sensitization by skin contact.
Potential Health Effects
May result in corneal injury. Causes severe eye irritation and possible injury.
Causes mild skin irritation. May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Ingestion of large amounts may produce central nervous system depression, headache, dizziness, diarrhea, and possible hemorrhagic gastroenteritis.
Causes upper respiratory tract irritation. Causes irritation of the mucous membrane. Inhalation of dust may cause irritation of the nose and throat. Inhalation may cause liver, kidney, and bladder effects.
Animal studies have reported that fetal effects/abnormalities may occur when maternal toxicity is seen. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic effects. Repeated skin exposure may produce photoallergic contact dermatitis with persistent light reactivitiy.
Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively. Individuals with chronic respiratory disorders may be more susceptible to the effects of this product. Persons with pre-existing skin disorders may be more susceptible to dermatitis. To treat corneal damage, careful ophthalmologic evaluation is recommended and the possibility of local corticosteroid therapy should be considered.
Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Dusts may be combustible when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizing agents.
Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use only in a well-ventilated area. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
Exposure Limits CAS# 80-05-7: Germany: 5 mg/m3 TWA (inhalable fraction) Netherlands: 5 mg/m3 MAC (respirable dust); 10 mg/m3 MAC (inhalab dust) Russia: 5 mg/m3 TWA Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or European Standard EN 149 must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant respirator use.

Section 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Fish: Fathead Minnow: LC50 =4.6 mg/L; 96 Hr; Flow-through bioassayWater flea Daphnia: EC50 = 10 mg/L; 48 Hr; Unspecified4,4'-Isopropylidenediphenol is expected to show moderate to low soil mobility and will biodegrade in soil under aerobic conditions following acclimation. In acclimated water, biodegradaion will be the dominate fate process with a half-life of 4 days. In nonacclimated water, this product may biodegrade after a sufficient adaptation period and may adsorb extensively to suspended solids and sediments or it may photolyze. 4,4'-Isopropylidenediphenol is not expected to bioaccumulate significantly in aquatic organisms,
