Inhalation: Product is irritating to the nose, throat and respiratory tract. See "Other Health Effects" Section. . Skin Contact: Brief contact causes irritation (itching, local redness or possible swelling). Prolonged and repeated contact may lead to dermatitis. May cause defatting, drying and cracking of the skin. Skin contact can cause irritation, especially under the finger nails (and other confined spaces such as under rings or watch bands).
Travchem Deicer, Liquid Brenntag Canada Inc. WHMIS Number: 00064165 Date of Revision: 2003 August 11 Page 2 _______________________________________________________________________________________________ . Skin Absorption: May be absorbed through intact skin. . Eye Contact: Vapours from this product are irritating to the eyes. Causes eye irritation. . Ingestion: Ingestion is not a likely route of exposure. This product causes irritation, a burning sensation of the mouth and throat and abdominal pain. Other Health Effects: Effects (irritancy) on the skin and eyes may be delayed, and damage may occur without the sensation or onset of pain. Strict adherence to first aid measures following any exposure is essential. Intentional misuse of organic solvents (eg. "glue sniffing") over prolonged periods of time may be habit forming and lead to behavioural changes. May cause central nervous system (CNS) depression, liver damage, kidney damage, systemic poisoning and death. CNS depression is characterized by headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting and incoordination. Severe overexposures may lead to coma and possible death due to respiratory failure. Liver damage is characterized by the loss of appetite, jaundice (yellowish skin colour), and occasional pain in the upper left-hand side of the abdomen. Signs and symptoms of kidney damage generally progress from oliguria, to blood in the urine, to total renal failure. Methanol may cause visual disturbances, blindness, photophobia, metabolic acidosis and endocrine effects. Mild blurring of vision to complete blindness may occur, including changes in colour perception and photophobia. Symptoms usually develop 12-18 hours after exposure. Abnormal sensitivity to light is termed photophobia. Metabolic acidosis is a condition that describes a decreased pH and bicarbonate concentration in the body fluids. Ethylene Glycol poisoning occurs in three stages: central nervous system (CNS) depression, cardiopulmonary failure and kidney failure. The severity of those stages, and advancement from one stage to another depends upon the dose ingested. CNS depression is characterized by headache, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting and incoordination. Severe overexposures may lead to coma and possible death due to respiratory failure. Survival of CNS depression may be followed by cardiopulmonary failure, which is initiated by the onset of coma and is characterized by quick, shallow breathing, excessively fast heart beat, mild hypertension and cyanosis. Survival of cardiopulmonary failure may be followed by kidney damage, which may range from a mild increase in blood urea nitrogen to complete kidney failure and possible death. In severe cases of overexposure, pulmonary oedema, bronchopneumonia, cardiac enlargement and possible death may occur. Pulmonary oedema is the exposure to high concentrations of a substance causing the build-up of fluid in the lungs that might be fatal. Symptoms of pulmonary oedema, such as shortness of breath, may not appear until several hours after exposure and are aggravated by physical exertion. There may be cranial nerve involvement in the late stages of toxicity from swallowed Ethylene Glycol. In particular, effects have been reported from the seventh, eighth and ninth cranial nerves, presenting with bilateral facial paralysis, diminished hearing and difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia). (3) Diethyl Ether may cause weakness, fatigue, anorexia, dyspnea and blood changes. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ 3.

FIRST AID MEASURES _______________________________________________________________________________________________ FIRST AID PROCEDURES
Travchem Deicer, Liquid Brenntag Canada Inc. WHMIS Number: 00064165 Date of Revision: 2003 August 11 Page 3 _______________________________________________________________________________________________ . Inhalation: Move victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration ONLY if breathing has stopped. Give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if there is no breathing AND no pulse. Obtain medical attention IMMEDIATELY. . Skin Contact: Start flushing while removing contaminated clothing. Wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation, redness, or a burning sensation develops and persists and obtain medical advice. . Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with running water for a minimum of 20 minutes. Hold eyelids open during flushing. If irritation persists, repeat flushing. Obtain medical attention IMMEDIATELY. . Ingestion: Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If victim is alert and not convulsing, rinse mouth out and give 1/2 to 1 glass of water to dilute material. IMMEDIATELY contact local Poison Control Centre. Vomiting should only be induced under the direction of a physician or a poison control centre. If spontaneous vomiting occurs, have victim lean forward with head down to avoid breathing in of vomitus, rinse mouth and administer more water. IMMEDIATELY transport victim to an emergency facility. Note to Physicians: This product contains materials that may cause severe pneumonitis if aspirated. If ingestion has occurred less than 2 hours earlier, carry out careful gastric lavage; use endotracheal cuff if available, to prevent aspiration. Observe patient for respiratory difficulty from aspiration pneumonitis. Give artificial resuscitation and appropriate chemotherapy if respiration is depressed. Methanol: When plasma Methanol concentrations are higher than 20 mg/dL, when ingested doses are greater than 30 mL, and when there is evidence of acidosis or visual abnormalities, a 10% solution of ethanol in 5% aqueous dextrose, administered intravenously, is a safe, effective antidote. (3) Isopropanol: Metabolism of isopropanol forms acetone, which may be detected in the urine and expired air. In contrast to diabetic acidosis, acidosis will occur in the absence of hyperglycemia. Haemodialysis should be considered in severe, acute intoxications. (3) Ethylene Glycol is metabolized by alcohol dehydrogenase to various metabolites including glycoaldehyde, glycolic acid, and oxalic acid which cause an elevated anion-gap metabolic acidosis and renal tubular injury. Urinalysis may show albuminuria, hematuria and oxaluria. Clinical chemistry may reveal anion-gap metabolic acidosis and uremia. (3) The currently recommended medical management of Ethylene Glycol poisoning includes elimination of Ethylene Glycol and metabolites, correction of metabolic acidosis and prevention of kidney injury. It is essential to have immediate and follow-up urinalysis and clinical chemistry. There should be particular emphasis on acid-base balance and renal function tests. A continuous infusion of 5% Sodium Bicarbonate with frequent monitoring of electrolytes and fluid balance is used to achieve correction of metabolic acidosis and forced diuresis. (3) Pulmonary oedmea with low arterial oxygen levels (hypoxemia) has been described in a number of patients following poisoning with Ethylene Glycol. The mechanism of production has not been elucidated, but it appears to be not carcinogenic in origin in several cases. Respiratory support with mechanical ventilation and positive end-expiratory pressure may be required. (3) As a competitive substrate for alcohol dehydrogenase, Ethyl Alcohol is antidotal. Given in the early stages of intoxication, it blocks the formation of nephrotoxic metabolites. A therapeutically effective blood concentration of ethanol is in the range of 100-150 mg/dL, and should be achieved by a rapid loading dose and maintained by intravenous infusion. (3) For severe and/or deteriorating cases, hemodialysis may be required. Dialysis should be considered for patients who are symptomatic, have severe metabolic acidosis, a blood Ethylene Glycol concentration greater than 25 mg/dL, or compromise of renal function. (3) 4-Methylpyrazole, a potent inhibitor of alcohol dehydrogenase, has been effectively used to decrease the metabolic consequences of Ethylene Glycol poisoning before metabolic acidosis, coma, seizures and renal failure have occurred. (3) Additional therapeutic measures may include the administration of cofactors involved in the metabolism of Ethylene Glycol. Thiamine (100 mg) and pyridoxine (50 mg) should be given

See "Other Studies Relevant to Material". Reproductive Data: Not available. No adverse reproductive effects are anticipated. Mutagenicity Data: Not available. No adverse mutagenic effects are anticipated. Teratogenicity Data: Based on animal studies, ingestion of very large amounts of Ethylene Glycol appears to be the major and possibly the only route of exposure to produce birth defects. (3) See "Other Studies Relevant to Material". Respiratory / Skin Sensitization Data: None known. Synergistic Materials: Alcohols may interact synergistically with chlorinated solvents (example - carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, bromotrichloromethane), dithiocarbamates (example - disulfiram), dimethylnitrosamine and thioacetamide. (4) Other Studies Relevant to Material: Ethylene Glycol has been shown to produce dose-related teratogenic effects in rats and mice when given by gavage or in drinking water at high concentrations or doses. The absence of a carcinogenic potential for Ethylene Glycol has been supported by numerous in vitro genotoxicity studies showing that it does not produce mutagenic or clastogenic effects. (3) Ethylene Glycol caused mild skin and eye irritation when tested in rabbits. (3) Methanol caused moderate skin and eye irritation when tested on rabbits using the Standard Draize Test. Methanol showed no evidence of carcinogenic potential in limited animal studies in which methanol was given orally or applied to the skin. Limited evidence of mutagenicity and teratogenicity exists. (3) Methanol was tested for alterations in circulating free testosterone and leuteinizing hormone. The most extensive effects were noticed after exposure to 200 ppm Methanol for six weeks, with serum levels of testosterone being 32 % that of the controls. A significant change in leuteinizing hormone concentration after exposure to 10,000 ppm of
