Section 2 - Hazards Identification

Potential Health Hazards (Acute and Chronic): (See Section 11 for more information)
Eye Contact: Causes eye irritation on direct contact.
Skin Contact: Causes skin irritation upon prolonged contact.
Inhalation: May cause irritation of the respiratory tract.
Ingestion: May be harmful if swallowed.
Chronic: DPM (soot) is listed as a carcinogen/potential carcinogen
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH): In 1988, NIOSH found animal evidence for carcinogenesis but limited human evidence. DPM listed as potential occupational carcinogen.
International Institute for Research on Cancer (IARC): In 1989, IARC found evidence for
carcinogenicity in rats and limited human epidemiology data for carcinogenicity. DPM listed as a probable human carcinogen
National Toxology Program (NTP): In 2000, NTP found DPM as "reasonably anticipated to be a human
carcinogen" based on findings of several elevated lung cancer occupational groups exposed to diesel exhaust, in addition to supporting animal studies.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): In 2002, EPA found diesel emissions to be likely
carcinogens to humans, citing evidence of carcinogenicity of diesel exhaust particles in rats and mice through non-inhalation routes of exposure.
Medical Conditions Generally Known to be Aggravated by Exposure:
Inhalation of airborne particulate matter may exacerbate asthma symptoms and trigger an asthma attack.

Section 3 - Composition, Information on Ingredients

Distinction between Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) and particulate removed from DPF's and DOC's: DPM originating from diesel engine exhaust contains a high percentage of hydrocarbons and a  lower concentration of ash. Particulate removed or extracted from a DPF or DOC during the cleaning process has a higher ratio of ash to hydrocarbon-containing soot.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: Remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention immediately.
Skin Contact: Rinse affected area with water for at least 15 minutes after removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing and shoes before reuse. Obtain medical assistance if needed.
Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Administer artificial respiration by qualified personnel if victim is not breathing. Get medical attention immediately.
Inhalation: If adverse effects occur, remove to an uncontaminated area. Administer artificial respiration by qualified personnel if victim is not breathing. Seek immediate medical attention.
If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. WARNING: It may be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
