|SECTION I. PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION|
Seaboard Mineral Spirits Paint Thinner & General Cleaner
|SECTION II. INGREDIENT INFORMATION|
|Mineral Spirits (Stoddard)||100||64741-41-9||100 ppm|
This product does not contain any materials listed by OSHA, NTP, or IARC as carcinogens.
|SECTION III. HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION|
Stoddard solvent, like all petroleum distillates, is a central nervous system depressant. Symptoms of overexposure to high vapor concentrations range from headache, dizziness, drowsiness, loss of coordination and fatigue to possible convulsions and unconsciousness. Eye contact with the liquid may cause conjunctivitis, stinging, tearing and redness. Respiratory symptoms associated with pre-existing lung disorders such as asthma, may be aggravated by exposure to this product. Prolonged or repeated skin contact causes a defatting effect, resulting in irritation, drying, cracking, and dermatitis. No harmful effects have been demonstrated in skin absorption studies. Persons with pre-existing skin disorders may be more susceptible to the effects of this material. This product has a low order of oral toxicity, however, if excessive quantities are ingested, it may cause irritation of the digestive tract and signs of nervous system depression (headache, drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination and fatigue). Aspiration of minute quantities of this material during vomiting may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury and possibly death.
This material has not been identified as a carcinogen by NTP, IARC, or OSHA. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational over exposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage (sometimes referred to as solvent or painters’ syndrome). Intentional misuse by deliberately concentration and inhaling this product may be harmful or fatal.
FIRST AID: EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes, including eyelids, with running water for at least fifteen minutes. Get medical attention. SKIN CONTACT: Flush exposed area with water while removing contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation persists. INHALATION: Remove person to fresh air. Restore and/or support breathing as required. Get medical help. INGESTION: DO NOT induce vomiting because this material can enter the lungs and cause severe lung damage. If victim is drowsy or unconscious, place on the left side with the head down. If possible, do not leave victim unattended. Contact a physician of Poison Control Center. Never give anything by mouth to a person who is unconscious or is having convulsions.
NFPA RATING: HEALTH - 1 FIRE - 2 REACTIVITY - 0
|SECTION IV. FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA|
FLASH POINT AND METHOD: ~101 °F TCC
UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT: ~ .9%
LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT: ~ 7.0%
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Foam, water spray (fog), carbon dioxide, dry chemical and vaporizing liquid type extinguishing agents may all be suitable for extinguishing fires involving this type of product, depending on size or potential size of fire and circumstances related to the situation. Plan fire protection and response strategy through consultation with local fire protection authorities or appropriate specialists. Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers. A fine water mist may be used to smother the fire or to disperse vapors. Do not use a solid stream of water since the stream will scatter and spread the fire.
Fire fighters must wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing when fighting fires involving this material.
The following procedures for this type of product are based on the recommendations in the National Fire Protection Association’s “ Fire Protection Guide on Hazardous Materials”, Eighth Edition (1984).
Use dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide to extinguish the fire. Water may be ineffective, but water should be used to keep exposed containers cool. If a leak or spill is ignited, use water spray to disperse the vapors and to protect men from attempting to stop a leak. Water sprays may be used to flush spills away from exposures. Minimize breathing of gases, vapor fumes and decomposition products. Use supplied air breathing equipment for enclosed or confined spaces or as otherwise needed.
Note: The inclusion of the phrase "water may be ineffective" is to indicate that although water can be used to cool and protect exposed material, water may not extinguish the fire unless used under favorable conditions by experienced fire fighters trained in fighting all types of flammable liquid fires.
|SECTION V. REACTIVITY DATA|
This material is stable in closed containers at room temperature under normal storage and handling conditions It does not polymerize. It is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Decomposition products can include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide ,water vapor, fumes, smoke and aldehydes.

|SECTION VII. SPILL, LEAK, AND DISPOSAL PROCEDURE|
Notify safety personnel of large spills or leaks. Shutoff and eliminate all ignition sources. Keep everyone away that is not involved in the clean-up. Clean-up personnel need protection against liquid contact and vapor inhalation. Absorb small spills and collect liquid, if feasible, or absorb with vermiculite or sand. Do not flush to sewer or stream. Ventilate any confined spaces.
Advise authorities if product has entered or may enter sewers, watercourses, or extensive land areas.
Dispose of liquid waste via licensed waste disposal company. Follow Federal, State and Local regulations.
|SECTION VIII. SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION|
Wear impervious gloves and safety glasses to prevent contact with the skin and eyes. If repeated or prolonged contact with liquid is likely, wear protective clothing including boots, apron, and faceshield or splash goggles. Removed contaminated clothing immediately and do not reuse until it has been properly laundered.
Eye wash stations and safety showers should be available in use and handling areas.
Contact lenses pose a special hazard; soft lenses may absorb and all lenses concentrate irritants.
|SECTION IX. SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS AND COMMENTS|
Stored in closed containers in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from oxidizers, heat and open flame. To prevent fire or explosion risk from static accumulation and discharge, effectively ground transfer system in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association standard for petroleum products
Protect containers from physical damage
"EMPTY" CONTAINER WARNING: "EMPTY" containers retain residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT WELD BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC, ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION; THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. Do not attempt to clean since residue is difficult to remove. “Empty” drums should be completely drained, properly bunged and promptly returned to drum reconditioner. All other containers should be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner and in accordance with governmental regulations. For work on tanks refer to Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, ANSI Z49.1, and other governmental and industrial references pertaining to cleaning, repairing welding, or other contemplated operations.
