Health Information

Light Ends Blend penetrates skin rapidly as a liquid or vapor, producing burns and dermatitis.  Swallowing this material causes intense burning of the mouth and throat, followed by abdominal pain and nausea; these effects may be delayed. There are no known acute, mutagenic, or teratogenic hazards.

Skin contact

Immediately wash from the skin by removing contaminated clothing and flushing the exposed area with water and soap.

Ingestion

Quickly give 3 or more glasses of milk or water to drink. Do not induce vomiting. Aspiration of liquid into the lungs due to vomiting can cause chemical pneumonitis.

Inhalation

Remove to fresh air.  Have qualified person restore and/or support breathing with oxygen, if needed. Keep warm.

Eye Contact

Immediately flush the eyes with plenty of running water, including under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes

Environmental Information

  • Ecotoxicity – no data available
  • Persistence and degradability – no data available
  • Bioaccumulation potential – no data available
  • Mobility in soil – no data available

No formal ecological data is available.  As with any hydrocarbon liquid which is not soluble in water, care should be taken to prevent spilled material from reaching waterways, storm drains, sewers, or direct ground contact.
