(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
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: Remove material from skin immediately by washing with soap and plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes while washing. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. Wash clothing before reuse. Discard items which cannot be decontaminated, including leather articles such as shoes, belts and watchbands.
Eye: If contact with the eye(s) occurs, wash with copious amounts of water holding eyelid(s) open remove contact lenses after the initial 1-2 minutes and continue flushing for several additional minutes. Take care not to rinse contaminated water unto the non-affected eye. If symptoms persist seek medical attention, preferably an ophthalmologist. Suitable emergency eye wash facilities should be available in the work area.

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

Column 1column 2
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water fog or fine spray. Dry chemical fire extinguishers. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. Foam. Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) are preferred. General purpose synthetic foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may functions, but will be less effective. Water fog, applied gently may be used as a blanket for fire extinguishment.
Hazards from Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion products may include and are not limited to: Phenolics, Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide.
Precautions in connection with Fire: Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry. Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and fire affected zone until fire is out and danger of reignition has passed. Fight fire from protected location or safe distance. Consider the use of unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Immediately withdraw all personnel from the area in cases of rising sound from venting safety device or discolouration of the container. Do not use direct water stream. May spread fire. Move container from fire if this is possible without hazard. Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect personnel and minimize property damage. Water fog, applied gently may be used as a blanket for fire extinguishment. Contain fire water run-off if possible. Fire water run-off, if not contained, may cause environmental damage.

SkinIrritating to skin. This product may cause sensitisation in some individuals
EyesIrritating to eyes. On eye contact this product will cause tearing, stinging, blurred vision and redness.
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.
