Chemical Product and Company Identification Trade Name of this Product Dynatex® 49431 Super Glue MSDS ID DYN49431 Manufacturer Dynatex Inc. 350 Ring Road Elizabethtown, KY 42701 Phone Number (270) 769-3385 Emergency Phone CHEMTREC (800) 424-9300 Revision Date 4/30/2007 2 2 1 Health Fire Reactivity Specific USE NO WATER Health: Fire: Reactivity: Specific 2 2 1 2. Composition and Information on Ingredients Ingredient CAS Number Weight % ACGIH TLV PEL STEL Ethyl-2-Cyanoacrylate 7085-85-0 80% - 95% 0.2 ppm None Poly Methyl Methacrylate 9011-14-7 5% - 10% 3. Hazard Identification Eye Contact Irritating to eyes. Causes excessive tearing. Eyelids may bond. Skin Contact Bonds to skin in seconds. May cause skin irritation. Cyanoacrylates have been reported to cause allergic reaction due to rapid polymerization at the skin surface, an allergic response is rare. Cyanoacrylates generate heat during the cure process and, in rare instances, a large drop can burn the skin. Inhalation Exposure to vapors above the established exposure limit results in respiratory irritation which may lead to difficulty breathing and tightness in the chest. Page 2 6 Print Rev. Date 04/30/2007 MSDS ID DYN49431 Dynatex® 49431 Super Glue Ingestion Material is not harmful if ingested. Cyanoacrylates are almost impossible to swallow because they solidify in the mouth. 4. First Aid Information Eye Contact Flush with warm water. If eyelids are bonded closed, release eyelashes with warm water by covering the eye with a wet pad. Do not force eye open. See supplemental section for emergency action. Skin Contact Soak in warm water. Do not pull skin apart. See supplemental section for emergency action. Inhalation Remove to fresh air. If symptoms persist, obtain appropriate medical attention. Ingestion Ingestion is unlikely. See supplemental section for emergency action. First Aid Supplement Cyanoacrylate adhesive is a very fast setting and strong adhesive. It bonds to human tissue and skin in seconds. Experience has shown that accidents due to Cyanoacrylates are best handles by passive, non-surgical first aid. Treatment of specific types of accidents are suggested as follows: Skin Contact Remove excess adhesive. Soak in warm, soapy water. The adhesive will come loose from the skin in several hours. Dried adhesive does not present a health hazard even when bonded to the skin. Avoid contact with clothes, fabrics, rags, or tissue. Contact with these materials may cause polymerization. The polymerization of large amounts of adhesive will generate heat causing smoke, skin burns, and strong, irritating vapors. Wear rubber or polyethylene gloves and an apron when handling large amounts of adhesive. Skin Adhesion First immerse the bonded surfaces in warm, soapy water. Peel off or roll the surfaces open with the end of a blunt edge, such as a spatula or a spoon handle, then remove adhesive with soap and water. Do not try to pull the surfaces apart with a direct opposing action. Eyelid adhesion In the event that eyelids are stuck together or bonded to the eyeball, wash throughly with warm water and apply a gauze patch. The eye will open without further action, typically in one to two days. There will be no residual damage. Do not try to pull the surfaces apart with a direct opposing action. Adhesive in eye Adhesive introduced into the eyes will attach itself to the eye protein and will disassociate from it over intermittent periods, usually several hours. This will cause periods of weeping until clearance is achieved. It is important to understand that disassociation will normally occur within a matter of hours, even with gross contamination. Page 3 6 Print Rev. Date 04/30/2007 MSDS ID DYN49431 Dynatex® 49431 Super Glue Mouth If lips are accidentally stuck together apply lots of warm water and encourage maximum wetting and pressure from saliva inside the mouth. Peel or roll lips apart. Do not try to pull the lips apart with direct opposing action. It is almost impossible to swallow cyanoacrylate. The adhesive solidifies and adheres in the mouth. Saliva will lift the adhesive in one to two days. Burns Cyanoacrylate gives off heat on solidification. In rare cases, large drops will increase in temperature enough to cause a burn. Burns should be treated normally after the lump of cyanoacrylate is released from the tissue as described above. Surgery It should never be necessary to use such drastic action to separate accidentally bonded skin. 5. Fire Fighting Measures Flash Point 150-200°F FP Method TCC Extinguishing Media Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, Foam Unusual Fire or Explosion Hazards None known Special Fire Fighting Procedures Wear self- contained breathing apparatus. 6. Accidental Release Measures Steps to be taken in case of spill or release Observe all personal protection equipment recommendations. Do not use cloths for clean up. Flood spilled material with water to polymerize. Cured material can be scrapped up and disposed of as nonhazardous waste. Make sure spill area is well ventilated. Local, state and federal laws and regulations may apply to releases and disposal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to determine which federal, state and local laws and regulations are applicable. 7. Handling and Storage Handling Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Avoid contact with paper goods or fabric. Contact with these materials may cause rapid polymerization which can generate smoke and strong irritating vapors. Storage Store away from heat and direct sunlight to maximize shelf life. Store inside in a dry Page 4 6 Print Rev. Date 04/30/2007 MSDS ID DYN49431 Dynatex® 49431 Super Glue location. Keep container tightly closed. 8. Exposure Controls and Personal Protection Eye Protection Safety goggles or glasses with side shields are recommended. Skin Protection Polyethylene or non-reactive gloves. Do not use cotton, PVC or wool. Ventilation Local exhaust ventilation is recommended to maintain vapor level below TLV. Respiratory Protection Not applicable with good local exhaust. Use NIOSH approved respirator if there is a potential to exceed exposure limits. 9.
