6. TOXICOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
Specific toxicity tests have not been conducted on this product.
This hazard evaluation is based on information from similar products,
the ingredients, technical literature and / or professional experience.
Cyanoacylate adhesives, while relatively low-toxicity, are mild irritants
to the skin and are severe eye irritants and tissue binders. This adhesive
gives an immediate, strong bond: apply only to surfaces to be bonded.
Do not get adhesive on skin or other part of the body. Ethyl 2-cyanoacrylate
at high concentrations may cause sensitization by inhalation and skin
EYE CONTACT: Severe eye irritant at high vapour levels causing
tearing. Vapour irritation to the eyes will be most noticeable under
conditions of low relative humidity. Adhesive is a tissue bonder.
SKIN CONTACT: Mild irritant to the skin, Acute Dermal LD50
is >6.76 ml/kg. CAUTION: strong bonds will form between adjacent
skin surfaces, such as the fingers.
INHALATION:. At high concentrations ethyl 2-cyanoacrylate is
severe irritant to upper respiratory tract with symptoms of coughing,
wheezing, laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache nausea and vomiting.
INGESTION: Very low toxicity, Acute Oral LD50 is
>5000 mg/kg. Caution: rapid hardening of the adhesive will take
place in contact with surfaces of the mouth and lips. Vapour irritation
to the mucous membranes will be most noticeable under conditions of
low relative humidity
CHRONIC TOXICITY: No reported carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, reproductive toxicity, mutagenicity,
7. PREVENTIVE MEASURES
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:
SKIN PROTECTION: Polyethylene gloves should be used to protect
the hands. CAUTION: Do NOT use rubber or cloth gloves. Rubber gloves
may bond when in contact with the adhesive and porous cotton gloves
will adsorb the adhesive and bond the gloves to the skin.
RESPIRATORS: Respiratory protection is not normally required
unless product is used in enclosed area of poor ventilation or individual
has a history of chronic respiratory disease.
EYE PROTECTION: Goggles or safety glasses should always be
OTHER PROTECTION: Eye bath and coveralls
Provide adequate ventilation in area of usage. When possible this
should be achieved by the use of local exhaust ventilation and good general
ventilation. Vapours are heavier than air, therefore, downward ventilation
should be used.
Controlled waste incineration or secure
use of excess adhesive. Excess adhesive outside of bond area will increase
level of vapours. Assemble parts as quickly as possible. Long open times
will increase levels of vapours. This product is not regulated for shipping
SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURE:
Wipe off quickly with paper towel or
STORAGE: . Store in cool (less than 5°C) and dry, dark area.
8. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE: In the
event of eye contact, the eyes should be copiously flushed with water
and medical aid sought immediately. If eyelids are bond closed, only
a qualified physician should attempt to separate them. In case of bonding
corneal surface, forced separation is NOT recommended. Allow eye to remain
closed and the bond to separate naturally, which generally will occur
witn a few days.
skin surfaces may be separated relatively easily by soaking the bonded
area in warm, soapy water for a few minutes. With appropriate caution,
solvents such as acetone or nail polish remover can be used effectively.
If skin contact is over a large area, the area should be flushed with
large amounts of water. A soaking wet cloth can be used to wipe off excessive
adhesive. If the adhesive has soaked through the clothing, flush the
area with water. If the cloth has bonded to the skin, the removal of
the bonded clothing without these precautions might result in skin damage.
Cured adhesive will flake from the skin within a day or so or can be removed
by treatment or by soaking with hot, soapy water.
adhesive comes in contact with the surfaces of the mouth, the mouth should
be flushed copiously with water and medical aid sought immediately. Lips,
if bonded, can be gently peeled apart, preferably with the aid of hot
water. If ingested, induce vomitting and seek medical aid immediately.
