Section 4: First Aid Measures

Column 1column 2
General Advice:If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre.
(Phone Australia 131 126, New Zealand 0800 764 766).

Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is laboured give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.
Inhalation:Remove the source of contamination or move the victim to fresh air. Ensure airways are clear and have qualified person give oxygen through a face mask if breathing is difficult. If symptoms develop and persist seek medical attention.
Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Immediately wash out mouth with water. In general no treatment is necessary unless large quantities are ingested, however, seek medical attention.
Skin: Wash affected area thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse or discard. If symptoms develop seek medical attention.
Eye: If contact with the eye(s) occurs, wash with copious amounts of water holding eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water unto the non-affected eye. If symptoms persist seek medical attention.
First Aid Facilities: Eye wash and normal wash room facilities.
Advice to Doctor: Treat symptomatically
Other Information: For advice, contact a Poisons Information Center (Phone e.g Australia 131 126)

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

Column 1column 2
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical or foam
Hazards from Combustion Products: Under fire conditions this product may emit toxic and/or irritating fumes including carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.
Precautions in connection with Fire: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus. Operated in a positive pressure mode. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

Column 1column 2
Emergency procedures:Wear appropriate personal protective equipment and clothing to minimise exposure. Extinguish or remove all sources of ignition and stop leak if safe to do so. Increase ventilation. Evacuate all unnecessary personnel. If possible contain the spill. Place inert absorbent material onto spillage. Use clean nonsparkling tools to collect the material and place in a suitable labelled container. Do not dilute material but contain. Dispose of waste according to federal, Environmental Protection Authority and state regulations. If the spillage enters the waterways contact the Environmental Protection Authority, or your local Waste Management Authority.

Section 7: Handling And Storage

Column 1column 2
Precautions for Safe Handling: Do not get into eyes, on skin or on clothing. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. DANGER. Corrosive to the eyes, corrosive to the skin. Maybe harmful if swallowed. Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause skin sensitisation. Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain hazardous product residues. Wash with soap and water before eating, drinking, smoking, applying cosmetics, or using toilet facilities. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Contaminated leather articles, including shoes cannot be decontaminated and should be destroyed to prevent reuse.
Conditions for Safe Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. Keep containers closed when not in use.

Section 8: Exposure Controls & Personal Protection

Column 1column 2
National Exposure Standards: No exposure standards have been established for this material by the Australian National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC) or the Occupational Safety and Health Service (OHS) of the New Zealand Department of Labour. However, exposure standards for ingredients are stated below: Australian National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC) exposure standards:
Biological Limit Values: No biological limit allocated.
Engineering Controls: Provide sufficient ventilation to keep airborne levels below the exposure limit. Where vapours or mist are generated, particularly in enclosed areas, and natural ventilation is inadequate, a local exhaust ventilation system is required. Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
Respiratory Protection: Where ventilation is inadequate the use of an Air Purifying Respirator with a replaceable organic vapour filter complying with AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716 is recommended.
Eye Protection: Safety glasses with side shields, goggles or full-face shield as appropriate recommended. Final choice of appropriate eye/face protection will vary according to individual circumstances i.e. methods of handling or engineering controls and according to risk assessments undertaken. Eye protection should conform with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1337 – Eye protectors for Industrial Applications.
Hand Protection: Wear gloves of impervious material such as impervious PVC or rubber gloves. Final choice of appropriate gloves will vary according to individual circumstances i.e. methods of handling or according to risk assessments undertaken. Reference should be made to AS/NZS 2161.1 Occupational protection gloves – Selection use and maintenance.
Body Protection: Suitable work wear should be worn to protect personal clothing. Industrial clothing should conform to the specifications detailed in AS/NZS 2919: Industrial Clothing.

Section 11: Toxicological Information

Acute oral toxicityLD50 Low Toxicity Rat LD50 >1080mg/kg
Acute dermal ToxicityLD50 Low Toxicity Rabbit LD50 >1090mg/kg
InhalationDiethylenetriamine LC50/4h 0.3mg/L (rat)
SkinCaustic effect on skin and mucous membrane
EyesStrong caustic effect. Strong irritant with the danger of server eye injury
Specific Target Organ Systemic Toxicity (Single Exposure)Evaluation of available data suggests that this material is not an STOTSE toxicant
Specific Target Organ Systemic Toxicity (Repeated Exposure)Except for skin sensitisation, repeated exposures to low molecular weight epoxy resins of this type are not anticipated to cause any significant adverse effects.
CarcinogenicityMany studies have been conducted to assess the potential carcinogenicity of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBPA). Indeed, the most recent review of the available data by the Internationial Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has concluded that DGEBPA) is not classified as a carcinogen. Although some weak evidence of carcinogenicity has been reported in animals, when all the data is considered, the weight of evidence does not show that DGEBPA is carcinogenic.
Teratogenicity Resins based on diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBPA) did not cause birth defects or other adverse effects on the fetus when pregnant rabbits were exposed by skin contacts, the most likely route of exposure, or when pregnant rats or rabbits were exposed orally.
Reproductive Toxicity In animal studies, did not interfere with reproduction.
