Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Inhalation hazard, only if dust if created. Treat symptomatically. Exposure to solvent vapor
concentrations from the component solvents in excess of the stated occupational exposure
limits may result in adverse health effects such as mucous membrane and respiratory
system irritation and adverse effects on the kidneys, liver and central nervous system.
Symptoms include headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, muscular weakness, drowsiness
and in extreme cases, loss of consciousness.
