V. HEALTH EFFECTS DATA
Animal Toxicity Oral,
LD50 (Ingestion): Greater than 5000 mg/kg (rat)
Eye Effects: Moderately irritating (rabbit)
Skin Effects: Not irritating (rabbit; 24 hr.)
Human Effects of Overexposure: Acetic acid emitted during the normal curing of this product will produce a sharp vinegar-like odor in the area of use. The odor gradually diminishes as the sealant cures. The acetic acid vapors may irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, particularly in an enclosed or poorly ventilated area. Contact lenses wearers should remove contact lenses before product use. Do not handle contact lenses while any residual sealant remains on fingers. Direct contact with the uncured product will irritate the eyes and the mouth. Skin irritation may occur if contact is repeated and prolonged. Keep out of reach of children. Threshold Limit Value: 10 ppm for acetic acid vapors. 15ppm as a 15 minute STEL (ACGIH 1984-85)
