section 3 - Composition/ Information on Ingredients: 
Ingredients CAS No Conc,% TWA (mg/m3) STEL (mg/m3)
Piperonyl butoxide 51-03-6 80 not set not set
Other non hazardous ingredients secret to 100 not set not set

 

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5 day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

section 4 - First Aid Measures: 

General Information:
You should call The Poisons Information Centre if you feel that you may have been poisoned, burned or irritated by
this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is available at all
times. Have this SDS with you when you call.
Inhalation: First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.
Skin Contact: Irritation is unlikely. However, if irritation does occur, flush with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 5
minutes or until chemical is removed. If in doubt obtain medical advice.
Eye Contact: No effects expected. If irritation does occur, flush contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing
water for 5 minutes or until the product is removed. Obtain medical advice if irritation becomes painful or lasts more
than a few minutes.
Ingestion: First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.

Fire and Explosion Hazards: There is no risk of an explosion from this product under normal circumstances if it is
involved in a fire. Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon application of direct water stream on hot
liquids.

section 6 - Accidental Release Measures: 

Accidental release: Minor spills do not normally need any special cleanup measures. In the event of a major spill,
prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses. As a minimum, wear overalls, goggles and gloves. Suitable
materials for protective clothing include rubber, PVC. Stop leak if safe to do so, and contain spill. Absorb onto sand,
vermiculite or other suitable absorbent material. If spill is too large or if absorbent material is not available, try to
create a dike to stop material spreading or going into drains or waterways. Sweep up and shovel or collect
recoverable product into labelled containers for recycling or salvage, and dispose of promptly. After spills, wash area
preventing runoff from entering drains. If a significant quantity of material enters drains, advise emergency services.
Full details regarding disposal of used containers, spillage and unused material may be found on the label. If there is
any conflict between this SDS and the label, instructions on the label prevail. Ensure legality of disposal by consulting
regulations prior to disposal. Thoroughly launder protective clothing before storage or re-use. Advise laundry of nature
of contamination when sending contaminated clothing to laundry.

section 7 - Handling and Storage: 

Handling: Keep exposure to this product to a minimum, and minimise the quantities kept in work areas. Check
Section 8 of this SDS for details of personal protective measures, and make sure that those measures are followed.

materials listed in Section 10.
Storage: Make sure that containers of this product are kept tightly closed. Make sure that the product does not come
into contact with substances listed under "Materials to avoid" in Section 10. Some liquid preparations settle or
separate on standing and may require stirring before use. Check packaging - there may be further storage
instructions on the label.

section 11 - Toxicological Information: 

Toxicity: Acute toxicity/irritation studies:
Ingestion: Minimally toxic: Oral LD50 (Rat) 4,570 mg/kg - males, 7,220 mg/kg - females
Dermal: Slightly toxic: Dermal LD50 (Rabbit) >2,000 mg/kg
Inhalation: Slightly toxic: Inhalation LC50 >5.9 mg/L
Eye Contact: Slightly irritating (Rabbit)
Skin Contact: Minimally irritating (Rabbit)
Skin Sensitization: Not a sensitizer (Guinea Pig)
Mutagenic Potential: None observed.
Reproductive Hazard Potential: None observed.
Chronic/Subchronic Toxicity: None observed.
Carcinogenic Potential: Marginally higher incidences of benign liver tumors in mice were observed following lifetime
high dose exposures to Piperonyl Butoxide. The significance of this observation is questionable and under review.
The doses at which tumors were observed greatly exceeded potential human exposure from labeled uses. Doses at
which these effects were observed greatly exceeded human dietary intake. At anticipated dietary exposure levels, it is
highly unlikely that this product would result in carcinogenic effects.
Other toxicity information:
Mutagenicity: Piperonyl Butoxide was not genotoxic in several tests, including the Ames mutagenicity assay,
chromosome aberration in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, CHO/HGPRT assay with S9 activation, and in the
unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) assay in cultured human liver cells.
Teratology/Reproductive effects: There were no birth defects or adverse effects on reproductive parameters in rats
or rabbits. Piperonyl Butoxide is not considered to be teratogenic.
Toxicity of other components: Not applicable.
Target Organs: Central nervous system.
