3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Appearance: Colorless to Light Yellow Viscous Liquid Mild Odor Contact may
cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction which becomes evident on re-
exposure to this material.
Route(s) of Entry:
Skin contact. Eye contact. Ingestion.
SKIN: Contact may cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction which
becomes evident on re-exposure to this material. Contact causes skin
irritation. EYES: Direct contact with this material causes eye irritation.
INHALATION: Low volatility makes vapor inhalation unlikely. Aerosol can
be irritating. INGESTION: Single dose oral toxicity is low. Swallowing
small amounts during normal handling is not likely to cause harmful effects;
swallowing large amounts may be harmful. Chronic Exposure: No significant toxicological effects were observed in rats exposed by the oral route.
Carcinogenicity: This material does not contain 0.1% or more of any chemical listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National Toxicology Program (NTP), or regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a carcinogen. =================================================================
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Immediately flush eyes with large quantities of clean water for at least 15 minutes. Get immediate medical attention.
Wash skin with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Solvents should not be used to clean hands or skin because they increase the penetration of the material into the skin. Remove and dispose of all contaminated leather goods, including shoes.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Give the victim one or two glasses of water or milk to drink. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical advice. In general, no adverse effects are anticipated by this route of exposure incidental to proper industrial handling.
Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air. Keep warm and quiet. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen by trained personnel. GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. ================================================================= 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES Flash Point: 480 degrees F ( 249 degrees C) Flash Point Method Used: PMCC Flammable Limits in Air (Lower): Not available Flammable Limits in Air (Upper): Not available Autoignition: Not available VM&P Naphtha Fire Fighting Extinguishing Media:
Use carbon dioxide, foam, dry chemical or water fog to extinguish fire. Fire Fighting Equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full fire-fighting protective clothing. Thoroughly decontaminate all protective equipment after use. Fire Fighting Instructions: Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers. Use water spray to disperse vapors if a spill or leak has not ignited. See Section 13 for disposal considerations. Fire and Explosion Hazards: This material may polymerize (react) when its container is exposed to heat (as during a fire). This polymerization increases pressure inside a closed container and may result in the violent rupture of the container. Hazardous Combustion Products: The by-products expected in incomplete pyrolysis or combustion of epoxy resins are mainly phenolics, carbon monoxide and water. =================================================================
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Accidental Release Measures: FOR SMALL SPILLS: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g., dry sand or earth), then place in a chemical waste container. LARGE SPILL: Persons not wearing protective equipment (see Section 8) should be excluded from the area of the spill until clean-up has been completed. Prevent spilled material from: 1) contaminating soil, 2) entering sanitary sewers, storm sewers, and drainage systems, and 3) entering bodies of water or ditches that lead to waterways.
Shut off the leak when it is safe to do so, dike and pump the liquid into waste containers. Residual resin may be removed using steam or hot soapy water. =================================================================
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Signal Word: W A R N I N G Handling Information:
Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Wash hands thoroughly after handling and before eating or drinking. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Empty containers may retain product residue (liquid and/or vapor). Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose these containers to heat, flame, sparks, static electricity, or other sources of ignition as the container may explode and may cause injury or death. Empty drums should be completely drained and properly bunged. Empty drums should be promptly returned to a drum reconditioner or properly disposed. See Section 13 for disposal considerations.
Keep container closed when not in use. Warm storage (130 degrees F/54 degrees C to 150 degrees F/65.5 degrees C) is recommended. This resin may crystallize during extended storage or when stored at low temperatures. Resin which has crystallized can be melted by warming at 130 degrees F - 150 degrees F until all crystals have melted. Remelting of resin has no negative effects on performance. =================================================================
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
There are no Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) Permissable Exposure Limits (PEL) or American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygenists (ACGIH) Threshold Limit Values (TLV) or Short Term Exposure Limits (STEL) established for the component(s) of this product. Engineering Controls: Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels of irritating vapors.
Eye Protection: Wear 1) safety glasses with side shields and a faceshield or 2) goggles and a faceshield. Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash station and safety shower. Skin Protection:
Wear chemical resistant gloves such as polyvinyl alcohol. If splashing is likely, wear impervious clothing and boots to prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact. Consult your supplier of personal protective equipment for additional instructions on proper usage. Respiratory Protection: If material generates fumes when heated, a NIOSH/MSHA approved air- purifying respirator with organic vapor cartridge or canister may be used to minimize exposure. A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.Protection provided by air purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure air- supplied respirator if 1) there is any potential for an uncontrolled release, 2) exposure levels are not known, or 3) during other circumstances where air purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection. =================================================================

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Acute Skin Toxicity: Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol A: dermal LD50 (rabbit), 20,000 mg / kg.
Acute Oral Toxicity: Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol A: oral LD50 (rat), > 5,000 mg / kg.
Chronic/Carcinogenicity: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A in Group 3, the agent is not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans. Many studies have been conducted to assess (DGEBPA) based epoxy resins. In one of these, a DGEBPA-based resin (containing high levels of several impurities, including a known animal carcinogen) was reported to produce a weak carcinogenic response in the skin of one of two strains of mice tested. Recent studies have suggested slight increases in two systemic tumor types following repeated application of certain DGEBPA-containing resins (or pure DGEBPA), although the response was not uniform among practically identical resins. Based on the cause-effect relationship between DGEBPA treatment and these tumor increases is questionable. Teratology: Diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A did not cause birth defects or other adverse effects on the fetus when pregnant rabbits were exposed by skin contact, the most likely route of exposure, or when pregnant rats or rabbits were exposed orally.
Reproduction: In animal studies, diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A has been shown not to interfere with reproduction.
Mutagenicity: Diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A has proved to be inactive when tested by in-vivo mutagenicity assays. It has shown activity by in-vitro microbial mutagenicity screening and has produced chromosomal aberrations in cultured rat liver cells. The significance of this information to man is unknown.
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Ecotoxicity: Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol A: material is moderately toxic to aquatic organisms on an acute basis (LC50/EC50 between 1 and 10 mg / L in most sensitive species); LC50 (water flea Daphnia magna), 1.3 mg / L; LC50 (fathead minnow), 3.1 mg / L.
Environmental Fate: The bioconcentration potential for diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A is moderate (BCF between 100 and 3,000 of Log Pow between 3 and 5). Potential for mobility in soil is low (Koc of 500-2000). Measured lof ocatanol/water partition coefficient (log Pow) is 3.7-3.9. Soil organic carbon/water partition coefficient (Koc) is estimated to be 1767. Biodegradation under aerobic laboratory conditions is below detechtable limits. Theoretical oxygen demand is calculated to be 2.35 p/p. The atmospheric half-life is 1. 92 hr. Biodegradation reached in Modified Zahn-Wellens/EMPA test after 28 days: 12%. =================================================================
