Description of first aid measures Eye Contact:
If this product comes in contact with the eyes:
Wash out immediately with fresh running water. Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention without delay; if pain persists or recurs seek medical attention.
Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.
Immediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear. Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available).

Seek medical attention in event of irritation.
If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area. Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested. Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where possible, prior to initiating first aid procedures. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve mask device, or pocket mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary. Transport to hospital, or doctor, without delay.
Following uptake by inhalation, move person to an area free from risk of further exposure. Oxygen or artificial respiration should be administered as needed. Asthmatic-type symptoms may developand may be immediate or delayed up to several hours. Treatment is essential y symptomatic. A physician should be consulted. Ingestion:
If swal owed do NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration. Observe the patient carefully. Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness; i.e. becoming unconscious. Give water to rinse out mouth, then provide liquid slowly and as much as casualty can comfortably drink. Seek medical advice. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
For sub-chronic and chronic exposures to isocyanates:
This material may be a potent pulmonary sensitiser which causes bronchospasm even in patients without prior airway hyperreactivity. Clinical symptoms of exposure involve mucosal irritation of respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Conjunctival irritation, skin inflammation (erythema, pain vesiculation) and gastrointestinal disturbances occur soon after exposure. Pulmonary symptoms include cough, burning, substernal pain and dyspnoea. Some cross-sensitivity occurs between different isocyanates. Noncardiogenic pulmonary oedema and bronchospasm are the most serious consequences of exposure. Markedly symptomatic patients should receive oxygen, ventilatory support and anintravenous line. Treatment for asthma includes inhaled sympathomimetics (epinephrine [adrenalin], terbutaline) and steroids. Activated charcoal (1 g/kg) and a cathartic (sorbitol, magnesium citrate) may be useful for ingestion. Mydriatics, systemic analgesics and topical antibiotics (Sulamyd) may be used for corneal abrasions. There is no effective therapy for sensitised workers.
[Ellenhorn and Barceloux; Medical Toxicology] NOTE: Isocyanates cause airway restriction in naive individuals with the degree of response dependant on the concentration and duration of exposure. They induce smooth muscle contraction which leads to bronchoconstrictive episodes. Acute changes in lung function, such as decreased FEV1, may not represent sensitivity. [Karol & Jin, Frontiers in Molecular Toxicology, pp 56-61, 1992] Personnel who work with isocyanates, isocyanate prepolymers or polyisocyanates should have a pre-placement medical examination and periodic examinations thereafter, including a pulmonary function test. Anyone with a medical history of chronic respiratory disease, asthmatic or bronchial attacks, indications of allergic responses, recurrent eczema or sensitisation conditions of the skin should not handle or work with isocyanates. Anyone who develops chronic respiratory distress when working with isocyanates should be removed from exposure and examined by a physician. Further exposure must be avoided if a sensitivity to isocyanates or polyisocyanates has developed. SECTION 5 Firefighting measures Extinguishing media Special hazards arising from the substrate or mixture Fire Incompatibility:
Avoid contamination with oxidising agents i.e. nitrates, oxidising acids, chlorine bleaches, pool chlorine etc. as ignition may result
Advice for firefighters Fire Fighting:
Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard. Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves. Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses. Use water delivered as a fine spray to control fire and cool adjacent area.
Combustible. Moderate fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame.
When heated to high temperatures decomposes rapidly generating vapour which pressures and may then rupture containers with release of flammable and highly toxic isocyanate vapour. Burns with acrid black smoke and poisonous fumes.
SECTION 6 Accidental release measures Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures Minor Spills:
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear impervious gloves and safety goggles. Trowel up/scrape up.
Clear area of personnel and move upwind. Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard.
Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves. Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course.
Personal Protective Equipment advice is contained in Section 8 of the MSDS.
Page 3 of 6 Permarock Joint Adhesive (PU) SECTION 7 Handling and storage Precautions for safe handling Safe handling
Avoid all personal contact, including inhalation. Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs.
Use in a well-ventilated area. Prevent concentration in hollows and sumps.
Store in original containers. Keep containers securely sealed. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Store away from incompatible materials and foodstuff containers.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Suitable container:
Packaging as recommended by manufacturer. Check all containers are clearly labelled and free from leaks.
Avoid reaction with water, alcohols and detergent solutions. Isocyanates and thioisocyanates are incompatible with many classes of compounds, reacting exothermically to release toxic gases. Reactions with amines, strong bases, aldehydes,alcohols, alkali metals, ketones, mercaptans, strong oxidisers, hydrides, phenols, and peroxides can cause vigorous releases of heat. Acids and bases initiate polymerisation reactions inthese materials.

prepolymers, present inthe workplace air asvapours, mist or dust. Emergency Limits Ingredient Ingredient Original IDLH Revised IDLH Exposure controls Appropriate engineering controls
Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or place a barrier between the worker and the hazard. Well-designed engineering controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and willtypically be independent of worker interactions to provide this high level of protection. The basic types of engineering controls are:Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk. Personal protection Eye and face protection:
Safety glasses with side shields. Chemical goggles. Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, shouldbe created for each workplace or task. Skin protection: Hand protection:
The material may produce skin sensitisation in predisposed individuals. Care must be taken, when removing gloves and other protective equipment, to avoid all possible skin contact. Contaminated leather items, such as shoes, belts and watch-bands should be removed and destroyed.

Evidence shows, or practical experience predicts, that the material produces irritation of the respiratory system, in a substantial number of individuals, following inhalation. In contrast to most organs,the lung is able to respond to a chemical insult by first removing or neutralising the irritant and then repairing the damage. The repair process, which initially evolved to protect mammalian lungsfrom foreign matter and antigens, may however, produce further lung damage resulting in the impairment of gas exchange, the primary function of the lungs. Respiratory tract irritation often resultsin an inflammatory response involving the recruitment and activation of many cell types, mainly derived from the vascular system. Ingestion:
Accidental ingestion of the material may be damaging to the health of the individual. Skin Contact:
Evidence exists, or practical experience predicts, that the material either produces inflammation of the skin in a substantial number of individuals following direct contact, and/or produces significantinflammation when applied to the healthy intact skin of animals, for up to four hours, such inflammation being present twenty-four hours or more after the end of the exposure period. Skin irritation mayalso be present after prolonged or repeated exposure; this may result in a form of contact dermatitis (nonallergic). The dermatitis is often characterised by skin redness (erythema) and swelling
(oedema) which may progress to blistering (vesiculation), scaling and thickening of the epidermis. At the microscopic level there may be intercellular oedema of the spongy layer of the skin(spongiosis) and intracellular oedema of the epidermis.
Evidence exists, or practical experience predicts, that the material may cause eye irritation in a substantial number of individuals and/or may produce significant ocular lesions which are presenttwenty-four hours or more after instillation into the eye(s) of experimental animals. Repeated or prolonged eye contact may cause inflammation characterised by a temporary redness (similar towindburn) of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis); temporary impairment of vision and/or other transient eye damage/ulceration may occur. Chronic:
Practical evidence shows that inhalation of the material is capable of inducing a sensitisation reaction in a substantial number of individuals at a greater frequency than would be expected from the
Pulmonary sensitisation, resulting in hyperactive airway dysfunction and pulmonary allergy may be accompanied by fatigue, malaise and aching. Significant symptoms of exposure may persist forextended periods, even after exposure ceases. Symptoms can be activated by a variety of nonspecific environmental stimuli such as automobile exhaust, perfumes and passive smoking. TOXICITY IRRITATION Permarock Joint Adhesive (PU)

Pure p-phenylenediamine is non-mutagenic in but becomes mutagenic after it is oxidized. Permarock Joint Adhesive (PU), POLYMERIC DIPHENYLMETHANE DIISOCYANATE
The following information refers to contact allergens as a group and may not be specific to this product. Contact allergies quickly manifest themselves as contact eczema, more rarely as urticaria or Quincke's oedema. The pathogenesis of contact eczema involves a cell-mediated (T lymphocytes)immune reaction of the delayed type. Other allergic skin reactions, e.g. contact urticaria, involve antibody-mediated immune reactions.
