HEALTH 1 FLAMMABILITY 2 REACTIVITY PERSONAL PROTECTION X
ProductName: FLOWAY (aerosol)
Product Use: External Engine Cleaner for Industrial Use
SECTION 2: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Clear liquid with a solvent odor packaged as an aerosol.
WARNING! Contents under pressure. Heated can may rupture. Combustible Liquid and Vapor. May cause eye and skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin. Inhalation of vapors or mist may cause respiratory irritation and central nervous system effects such as headache, dizziness, nausea and vomiting. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Aspiration into the lungs during ingestion or vomiting may cause lung damage. May cause chronic effects.
Potential Health Effects: Eye: May cause eye irritation with redness, tearing and stinging. Corneal injury is possible if not promptly removed.
Skin: May cause mild irritation with redness and swelling. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in defatting and dermatitis. May be absorbed through the skin with effects similar to inhalation and ingestion.
Inhalation: Inhalation of vapors or mists may cause mucous membrane and upper respiratory tract irritation and central nervous system depression. Symptoms may include burning sensation, coughing, wheezing, sore throat, shortness of breath, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, depressed respiration and heart rate, heart rhythm irregularities and unconsciousness.
Ingestion: Ingestion is an unlikely route of exposure for aerosol products. Swallowing may cause gastrointestinal irritation with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and central nervous system depression with symptoms including headache, dizziness, intoxication, weakness, respiratory failure, convulsions, cardiovascular collapse and pulmonary edema. Aspiration into the lungs during ingestion or vomiting may cause lung damage.
ChronicHazards: Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause damage to the central nervous system, blood, kidney and liver. This product contains chemicals that in animal studies caused harm to the developing fetus, but only at exposure levels that harm the pregnant animal. There is no evidence of adverse fetal or reproductive effects in humans.
Carcinogen Status: None of the components of this product at greater than 0.1% are listed as carcinogens by OSHA, IARC or NTP.
MedicalConditionsAggravated by Exposure: Pre-existing eye, skin, respiratory, heart, central nervous system, liver and kidney disorders.
SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES Eye: Rinse thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eyelids open to be sure the material is washed out. Get immediate medical attention.
Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contact area thoroughly with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation or symptoms of exposure develop. Launder clothing before re-use.
Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if needed. If breathing is difficult, oxygen should be administered by qualified personnel. Get immediate medical attention.
Ingestion: Ingestion is an unlikely route of exposure for aerosol products. DO NOT induce vomiting. Keep the victim calm and warm. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious or drowsy person. Get immediate medical attention.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES FlashPoint: 135°F (57oC) COC (concentrate) Flammable Limits: LEL: 0.9%
Autoignition Temperature: Not Determined
Aerosol Flame Extension: None
Aerosol Flashback: None
Aerosol Protection Level (NPPA 30B): Level 3
ExtinguishingMedia: Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical or foam. Water may be ineffective but can be used to cool containers and structures.
SpecialFire FightingProcedures:Wear NIOSH approved, positive pressure, self‑contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Cool fire exposed containers with water. Protect against bursting cans.
UnusualFireHazards: Contents under pressure. Keep away from heat and open flames. Container may rupture or explode in the heat of a fire. Prolonged exposure to temperatures above 120ºF may cause cans to burst. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along surfaces to remote ignition sources and flash back. Never use welding or cutting torch on or near containers (even empty) because product can ignite explosively. Combustion products may be hazardous.
Hazardous DecompositionProducts: Oxides of carbon, organic compounds, smoke and fumes.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Spill: Remove all ignition sources such as open flames, spark producing equipment, pilot lights, etc. Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent eye and skin contact including impervious gloves, safety goggles and respirator if needed (refer to Section 8 for specific recommendations). Ventilate area. Cover with an inert absorbent material and collect into an appropriate container for disposal. Report spills and releases as required to appropriate authorities.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling: Avoid breathing vapors, aerosols and mists. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with the eyes, skin and clothing. Wash exposed skin thoroughly with soap and water after use. Keep product away from heat, sparks, flames and all other sources of ignition. No smoking in storage or use areas. Do not cut, braze, solder, grind or weld empty containers. Contents under pressure. Do not puncture or incinerate container.
Storage Store in a cool, well ventilated area at temperatures below 120ºF. Do not store in direct sunlight. Store as a Level 3 aerosol.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Ventilation: Use with adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to maintain concentrations below the occupational exposure limits. Use explosion proof electrical equipment and wiring where required.
RespiratoryProtection: If needed, a NIOSH approved respirator with organic vapor cartridges may be used. For higher exposures, a supplied air respirator may be required. Respirator selection and use should be based on contaminant type, form and concentration. Follow OSHA 1910.134, ANSI Z88.2 and good Industrial Hygiene practice.
SkinProtection Impervious gloves are recommended when needed to avoid skin contact. Based on available test data, 4H or Silver Shield gloves are suggested.
EyeProtection: Chemical safety goggles recommended.
OtherProtectiveEquipment: Impervious clothing as required to prevent skin contact and contamination of personal clothing. Suitable eye wash and washing facilities should be available in the work area.
