6. Accidental Release Measures
Small spill and leak : Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Avoid breathing vapors of this product. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark or flame). Keep unnecessary people away from spill area. Clean up spills immediately. Absorb with liquid-binding material (sand, universal binders, or spill kit). Place in suitable clean, dry containers for disposal by approved methods.
Large spill and leak : Do not clean-up or dispose except under supervision of a specialist. Eliminate all ignition sources. For large spills like spilled material or otherwise contain material to ensure runoff does not reach a water way. Keep unnecessary people awayfrom spill area. Follow company spill response procedures. Clean up spills immediately. Wear protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles and face protection. Contact lenses are not protection devices. Appropriate eye protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with contact lenses . Wear approved self contained breathing apparatus or equivalent and full protective gear. Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Place spilled material in an appropriate container for disposal Dispose off according to all federal, state and local applicable regulations.
7. Handling and Storage
Handling : Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing dust. Wash thoroughly after handling. Ground and bond containers when transferring material to prevent dust explosion. Minimize dusty generation and accumulation.
Storage : The resin should be stirred in the original, unopened and undamaged container in a dry place at storage temperature between 25-30˚C Exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided.
8. Exposure Control/Personal Protection
Exposure limits : None established
Engineering Controls : Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep air borne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operation generate dust fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to air borne contaminants below the exposure limit. Avoid dust accumulation.
Ventilation : Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control air borne levels.
Respiratory System : Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
Skin Contact : Use chemical resistant, impervious gloves, work uniform or laboratory coat.
Eyes : Safety glasses with side shields or chemical splash goggles.

11. Toxilogical Information
Routes of Entry Skin, eyes and respiratory tract.
Toxilogical Acute oral toxicity (LD50):940 mg/kg[ Rat]. (Adipic Acid)
Information Acute dermal toxicity (LD50) :> 7940 mg/kg [Rabbit] (Adipic Acid)
Acute toxicity of the gas (LC50):2330 mg/m3 8 hr(s) [Rat](Trimellitic anhydride)
Acute toxicity of the dust (LC50) :> 7.7 mg/l 4 hr.(s) [Rat]. (Adipic Acid)

Skin: 555mg (open)-mild (rabbit), Eye: 100 mg/1h-mild (rabbit),Eye:1440mg/6h-moderate(rab-bit)Eye: 500 mg/24h-mild (rabbit), Eye 12 mg/m3/3D (rabbit)
Chronic Health Effects:
Substance is reproductive effectors in rats. Mutagenic to Rat cells. Exposure to the material for prolonged periods may cause physical defects in the developing embryo (teratogensis)
Trimellitic Anhydride: Acute or chronic overexposure may cause systemic toxicity, including adverse effects to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. It is an irritant and respiratory sensitizer.
EFFECTS ON THE HUMAN:
TMA inhalation by humans can cause respiratory irritation, which is generally accompanied by coughing and nasal discharge, and can occur immediately upon a moderately heavy exposure to TMA. In susceptible individual, repeated inhalation of TMA can cause respiratory sensitization that may result in one of the following syndromes.
1. Immediate onset asthma/ rhinitis; This response occurs in sensitized individuals, typically within minutes of exposure and can include coughing, tightness in the chest, wheezing due to constriction of the airways, and sneezing. Symptoms may range from mild to severe. Recovery is generally rapid and complete following termination of exposure. Medical therapy, such as is routinely given for asthma, may be necessary.
2. Late onset respiratory systemic syndrome (TMA flu): This response occurs in sensitized individuals, typically from 4 to 8 hr(s) after exposure has ended. Symptoms are very much like influenza and include coughing wheezing, breathlessness,
congestion, fever, chills, fatigue and generalized aching. Recovery usually occurs without treatment and generally is complete 6 to 12 hours after the onset of symptoms. Infrequently, respiratory symptoms can progress, requiring medical attention.
3 . Hemoptysis and hemolytic anemia: This rare response has occurred in sensitized individuals exposed to TMA fumes and can result in severe symptoms (often requiring hospitalization) consisting of cough, breathlessness, impaired respiratory function, and anemia. Fumes are solid particles formed by condensation of the vapor resulting from heat vaporization of TMA.
