The MSDS, or Material Safety Data Sheet, is a document that gives instructions on how to handle chemicals in case of a fire, how to store and handle the chemicals, and what to expect with long-term exposure. Although the ingredients for each paint may vary slightly, the handling and safety information is identical. Below is MSDS information on Krylon paints.
Krylon paints will irritate eyes, cause skin irritation with prolonged exposure and will irritate the upper respiratory system if inhaled. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, loss of coordination and nausea.
Flush eyes for 15 minutes; thoroughly wash all skin with soap and water; wash contaminated clothing; if inhaled, seek fresh air; and if ingested, seek medical attention immediately. Do not induce vomiting.
This product has a flash point of 0 degrees Fahrenheit and must be extinguished using foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemicals. Firefighters should wear full protective equipment including a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Storage and Handling
Keep away from heat, sparks and open flames, for the vapors will spontaneously ignite. Do not smoke near the paint, and use in a well-ventilated area.
Prolonged exposure may cause brain and nervous system damage. Ethylbenzene, an ingredient in these products, increases the risks of developing cancers if repeated, prolonged exposure occurs.
