Material Safety Data Sheet
Commercial Product Name: Photo luminescent Acrylic Latex Paint
CHARACTERIZATION: Cristobalite CONTENT (Weight %): <0.1% CAS-No: 14464-46-1
CHARACTERIZATION: Strontium Aluminate CONTENT (Weight %): ~ 60% CAS-No: 12004-37-4
Identification of Hazards:
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: INHALATION of vapor or spray mist; EYE or SKIN contact with the product, vapor or spray mist.
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE: EYES: Irritation; SKIN: Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause irritation; INHALATION: Irritation of the upper respiratory system. In a confined area vapors in high concentration may cause headache, nausea or dizziness.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Redness and itching or burning sensation may indicate eye or excessive skin exposure.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: None generally recognized.
Measures of First Aid:
AFTER INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If affected, remove from exposure. Restore breathing. Keep warm and quiet.
EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT: Wash affected area thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use.
SWALLOWING: Flush the mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.
Measures in Case of Fire:
FLASH POINT: Not Applicable; LEL: Not Applicable; UEL: Not Applicable; Flammability Classification: Not Applicable
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, Alcohol Foam
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Closed containers may explode (due to the build-up of pressure) when exposed to extreme heat. During emergency conditions overexposure to decomposition products may cause a health hazard. Symptoms may not be immediately apparent. Obtain medical attention.
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Full protective equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus should be used. Water spray may be ineffective. If water is used, fog nozzles are preferable. Water may be used to cool closed containers to prevent pressure build-up and possible auto ignition or explosion when exposed to extreme heat.
Measures after Spillage or Accidental Leakage:
Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate the area. Remove with inert absorbent.
Handling and Storage:
Store dry under indoor conditions. Keep containers tightly closed. Use mechanical ventilation. Avoid contacting with dust, acid, alkali and rain. Do not eat and drink while handling.
STORAGE CATEGORY: Not Applicable
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE: Keep container closed when not in use. Transfer only to approve containers with complete and appropriate labeling. Do not take internally. Keep out of the reach of children.
This is a glow in the dark product that facilitates safety through visibility.
Individual Exposure Controls/Personal Protection:
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN USE: Do not eat, drink or smoke in work areas. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing vapor and spray mist. Wash hands after using. This coating may contain materials classified as nuisance particulates which may be present at hazardous levels only during sanding or abrading of the dried film. If no specific dusts are listed in Section 2, the applicable limits for nuisance dusts are ACGIH TLV 10 mg/m3 (total dust), 3 mg/m3 (reparable fraction), OSHA PEL 15 mg/m3 (total dust), 5 mg/m3 (reparable fraction).
REMOVAL OF OLD PAINT: Sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
VENTILATION: Local exhaust preferable. General exhaust acceptable if the exposure to materials in Section 2 is maintained below applicable exposure limits. Refer to OSHA Standards 1910.94, 1910.107, 1910.108.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: If personal exposure cannot be controlled below applicable limits by ventilation, wear a properly fitted organic vapor/particulate respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for protection against materials in Section 2. When sanding or abrading the dried film, wear a dust/mist respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for dust which may be generated from this product, underlying paint, or the abrasive.
PROTECTIVE GLOVES: Wear gloves which are recommended by glove supplier for protection against materials in Section 2.
EYE PROTECTION: Wear safety spectacles with unperforated side shields.
