Health Effects

Routes of entry for solids and liquids include eye and skin contact, ingestion and inhalation. Routes of entry for gases include inhalation and eye contact. Skin contact may be a route of entry for liquefied gases.
Acute Overexposure Effects

Contact with the eyes and skin may result in irritation. Vapors are readily absorbed through the lungs. Inhalation of ethylbenzene vapors causes drowsiness, narcosis, headaches, cramps, and tightness of the chest. Severe overexposure can cause death due to respiratory center paralysis. If aspiration occurs, chemical pneumonitis or pulmonary edema may result. Ingestion may result in kidney or liver damage. Ethyl benzene is absorbed through the skin at a low rate.

Acute overexposure to petroleum distillate vapors may cause CNS effects, including headache, dizziness, drowsiness and confusion. Ingestion causes nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, and CNS disorders. Aspiration of the liquid into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis, which may be fatal.

Aspiration of xylene may result in chemical pneumonitis, pulmonary edema and hemorrhage. Ingestion and skin absorption may lead to CNS depression, symptoms may include nausea, dizziness and blurred vision.

Chronic Overexposure Effects

Animal studies indicate that chronic overexposure to ethylbenzene may cause liver and kidney injury. Increased liver and kidney weight were found in rats exposed to 400 ppm for 186 days. Animal studies indicate that the vapors may be embryotoxic. Prolonged skin contact will cause edema and blistering. In NTP 2-year inhalation studies, clear evidence of carcinogenicity of ethylbenzene in male rats was noted based on increased incidences of kidney neoplasms. Incidences of testicular adenoma, lung neoplasms and liver neoplasms, respectively. Prolonged or repeated skin contact with petroleum distillates may cause defatting and dermatitis.

The chronic effects of overexposure to xylene include possible liver and kidney damage. A mixture of o, m, and p - xylenes was teratogenic and embryotoxic to mice by the oral route; however, these effects were accompanied by maternal toxicity. Rats exposed to 1000 mg/m3 by inhalation exhibited no tertogenic effects; however, minor skeletal abnormalities occurred.

First Aid Procedures  -  Skin Wash affected areas with soap and water. Remove and launder contaminated clothing before reuse. If irritation develops, get medical attention.
First Aid Procedures  -  Eyes Immediately rinse eyes with running water for 15 minutes. If irritation develops, get medical attention.
First Aid Procedures  -  Ingestion If swallowed, dilute with with water and immediately induce vomiting. Never give fluids or induce vomiting if the victim is unconscious or having convulsions. Get immediate medical attention.
First Aid Procedures  -  Inhalation Move to fresh air. Aid in breathing, if necessary, and get immediate medical attention.
First Aid Procedures  -  Notes to Physicians None Known.

Explosion Proofing None required.

Spill-Leak / Environmental

General Spills should be contained, solidified and placed in suitable containers for disposal in a RCRA licensed facility. This material is RCRA hazardous due to its properties.
Waste Disposal Incinerate or bury in a RCRA licensed facility. Do not discharge into waterways or sewer systems without proper authority.
Container Disposal Empty containers with less than 1 inch of residue may be landfilled at a licensed facility. Recommend crushing or other means to prevent unauthorized reuse. Other containers must be disposed of in a RCRA licensed facility.

Storage and Handling

General Keep containers closed when not in use. Keep away from open flames or excessive heat.
