Eye contact: Causes moderate irritation to the eyes. Skin contact: Causes moderate irritation to the skin. Inhalation: Spray mist is irritating to respiratory system. Ingestion: May cause irritation to mouth, esophagus, and stomach. Chronic hazards: No known chronic hazard. Not listed by NTP, IARC or OSHA as a Carcinogen Physical hazards: Dries to form glass film which can easily cut skin. Spilled material is very Slippery. Can etch glass if not promptly removed.
4. First Aid Measures Eye: In case of splashing into eyes, immediately flush eyes with clean water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists get medical attention. Skin: In case of contact with skin, wash with warm water and soap. In contact with clothing or shoes remove and wash. Inhalation: Material is odorless, open container in adequate ventilation. Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately. If victim is fully conscious, give a cupful of water.

Hazards to fire-fighters: See section 3 for more information on hazards when this material is present in the area of fire. Fire-fighting equipment: The following protective equipment for fire fighters is recommended when this material is present in the area of a fire: chemical goggles, body covering protective clothing, chemical resistant gloves, and rubber boots. Hazardous Combustion Products: Not available Explosion data Sensitivity to mechanical impact and static discharge: Not applicable.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personal protection: Wear chemical goggles, body-covering protective clothing, chemical resistant gloves, and rubber boots. See section 8. Environmental Hazards: Sinks and mixes with water. High pH of this material is harmful to aquatic life, see section 12. Only water will evaporate from a spill of this material. Small spill cleanup: Mop up and neutralize liquid, dispose in accordance with federal and local regulations or permits. Large spill cleanup: Keep unnecessary people away, isolate hazard area and deny entry. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Stop leak if you can do so without risk. Prevent runoff from entering into storm sewers and ditches which lead to natural waterways. Isolate, dike and store discharged material, if possible. Use sand or earth to contain spilled material. If containment is impossible, neutralize contaminated area and flush with large quantities of water. CERCLA RQ (US): There is no CERCLA Reportable Quantity for this material. If a spill goes Site, notification of state and local authorities is recommended.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling: Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing spray mist, Keep container closed. Promptly clean residue from closures with cloth dampened with water. Promptly clean up spills. Storage: Keep containers closed. Store in clean steel or plastic containers. Separate from acids, reactive metals, and ammonium salts. Storage temperature 0-95C. Loading temperature 45- 95C. Do not store in aluminum, fiberglass, copper, brass, zinc or galvanized containers.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION Engineering controls: Use with adequate ventilation. Keep containers closed. Safety shower And eyewash fountain should be within direct access. Respiratory protection: Use a NIOSH-approved dust and mist respirator where spray mist Occurs. Observe Provincial regulations for respirator use. Skin protection: Wear body-covering protective clothing and gloves. Eye protection: Wear chemical goggles.

11. TOXICOLOOGICAL INFORMATION Acute Data: Eye and skin irritation potential, a similar material caused moderate irritation to the eyes and moderate irritation to the skin. Human experience indicates that skin irritation occurs, particularly, when on clothes at the collar, cuffs or other areas where abrasion may occur. The acute oral toxicity of this product has not been tested. When PipeFuze was tested on 100% solids basis, their single does acute oral LD50 in rats ranged from 1500mg/kg to 3200 mg/kg. The acute oral lethality resulted from nonspecific causes. Subchronic Data: In a study of rats fed PipeFuze in drinking water for three months. At 200, 600 and 1800 ppm, changes were reported in blood chemistry of some animals, but no specific changes to the organs of the animals due to PipeFuze were observed in any of the dosage groups. Special Studies: Mutagenicity: PipeFuze was not mutagenic to the bacterium E.Coli when tested in a mutagenicity bioassay. Carcinogenicity: there are no known reports of carcinogenicity of PipeFuze. PipeFuze is not listed by IARC, NTP or OSHA as a carcinogen. Sensitization to product: Not applicable Reproductive toxicity: Not applicable Teratogenicity: Not applicable Name of toxicologically synergistic products: Not applicable.
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Eco toxicity: The following data is reported for PipeFuze on a 100% solids basis: A 96 hour median tolerance for dish of 2320ppm; a 96 hour median tolerance for water fleas of 247 ppm; a 96 hour median tolerance for snail eggs of 632ppm; and a 96 hour median tolerance for amphipod of 160 ppm. Environmental Fate: This material is not persistent in aquatic systems, but it’s high pH when Undiluted or unneutralized is acutely harmful to aquatic life. Diluted material rapidly depolymerized to yield dissolved silica in a form that is indistinguishable from natural dissolved silica. It does not contribute to BOD. This material does not bio accumulate except in species that use silica as a structural material such as diatoms and siliceous sponges. Where abnormally low natural silica concentrations exist, dissolved Silica may be a limiting nutrient for diatoms and a few other aquatic Algal species. However, the addition of excess dissolved silica over the limiting concentration will not stimulate the growth of diatom populations; their growth rate is independent of silica concentration once the limiting concentration is exceeded. Neither silica’s nor sodium will appreciably bio concentrate up the food chain. Physical/Chemical: Sinks and mixes with water. Only water will evaporate from this material.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS Disposal Method: Dispose is accordance with federal, provincial and local regulations.
