Plastic derived oil is a dark brown liquid with a strong unique and recognizable odor. The degree of airborne exposure is dependent upon the area open for vapors to escape and the temperature of the oil.
Eyes: ACUTE - Mild to severe irritation, redness, burning, blurred vision. CHRONIC - Not determined
Skin: ACUTE - Mild irritation, burning, drying, flaking, staining. CHRONIC - Not determined
Inhalation: ACUTE - Over exposure can cause dizziness, disorientation, headache, nausea, fatigue and lung congestion. CHRONIC - Continued inhalation can adversely affect liver, kidney and lungs.
Ingestion: ACUTE - Over exposure can cause irritation to mouth, throat, stomach, headache, gastrointestinal irritation, narcosis, vomiting, diarrhea, jaundice, coma and hemolytic anemia. CHRONIC - Benzene is a carcinogen. Benzene exposure increased the incidence of leukemia in exposure levels of 210 to 650 ppm. Daily mean styrene exposure levels of 10 to 300 ppm resulted in adverse effects on Visio-motor speed, memory and intellectual function. Toluene exposure of pregnant employees has resulted in adverse fetal developmental effects.

Eyes: Flush with eye solution or large amounts of water. Continue until irritation subsides. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin: Immediately wash with warm water and soap. Remove contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Ingestion: Seek medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Do not give mouth-to-mouth.

Small Spill Control and Recovery: Oil absorbent should be used to contain and soak up oil. Do not use a combustible material. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
Large Spill Control and Recovery: Safely eliminate the source of the leak. Eliminate ignition sources. Prevent runoff from entering storm sewers and ditches. Water fog can be used to control vapors.

Stability: Material is stable under normal storage and handling situations.

Storage: Store in tight sealed container at ambient temperature in well ventilated areas. Do not store near flame or heat.
Handling: Only in well ventilated areas. Keep container closed when not dispensing product. Avoid body contact. Use grounding and bonding devices when transferring material.

Engineering controls: Use process enclosures, explosion proof local exhaust and general ventilation to maintain airborne concentrations below the applicable exposure limits. Store away from heat and flame.
Administrative Controls: Training must be conducted before routine and non-routine handling.
Respiratory Protection: Maintain atmospheric levels below exposure limits. SCBA or respirator when liquid is warm.
Protective Equipment: Apron or overalls to prevent staining and exposure to skin.

Subchronic: Rats exposed to 13.6, 136, 408, 680 mg/kg/day ethyl benzene in 182-day oral bioassay indicate liver and kidney damage at and above 408 mg/kg/day. Rat oral exposure to 0, 312, 625, 1,250, 2,500, 5,000 mg/kg toluene for 13 weeks. Death occurred within one week at 5,000 dose and within test period at 2,500. No deaths occurred at lower dosages. Toxic affects included prostration, hyperactivity, ataxia, piloerection, lacrimation, excessive salivation, body tremors.

Ecotoxicological information: Acute lowest effect levels for freshwater organisms: 5,300 ug/L benzene, 32,000 ug/L ethyl benzene, 2,300 ug/L naphthalene, 17,500 ug/L toluene. Product has the potential to cause large fish kills if released in substantial quantities to waterways (i.e., potentially dangerous to aquatic organisms). However, long term or chronic effects are not expected because of the anticipated short half-life of the product in the environment.
Distribution: The chemical constituents that comprise this product are volatile in nature and are expected to be readily released to the atmosphere from water and soil. It is expected that the bio concentration potential of the product is low; therefore, retention in plants and animals is expected to be minimal.
Chemical fate information: Degradation is expected in the environment. Biodegradation is expected if the conditions are favorable.

RCRA hazardous waste if discarded (D001 or D018). A determination will have to be made by the end user to whether the waste is D001 or D018. If waste is D108, it may be subject to land disposal restrictions under 40 CFR 268, “Land Disposal Restriction”. Waste must be disposed of in accordance with federal, state, and local environmental control regulations.
Empty containers retain residue and can be dangerous; therefore, they must be handled with care. Empty drums should be completely drained, properly closed and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner. All other containers should be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner in accordance with governmental regulations.
Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze solder, drill, grind or expose to heat, sparks, static electricity or other sources of ignition; they may cause injury or death.
