The following information (Health Effects, Handling/Disposal, and Ingredients) is taken from the product label and/or the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) prepared by the manufacturer. The National Library of Medicine does not test products nor does it evaluate information from the product label or the MSDS. (What is an MSDS?)
Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Can cause central nervous system, cardiopulmonary and kidney disorders. May cause respiratory tract and eye irritation. Birth defect hazard based on animal data. Do not drink antifreeze or solution. Avoid breathing of mists and vapors. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not store in open or unlabeled containers. If swallowed, immediately contact a poison control center, emergency treatment center, or physician. Ethylene glycol base. In case of eye contact, flush eyes thoroughly. Keep out of reach of children.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Emergency and Hazards Overview
WARNING: HARMFUL OR FATAL IF SWALLOWED.
If swallowed, IMMEDIATELY contact a poison control center, emergency treatment center, or physician.
Primary Route of Exposure: Skin

Health Effect Information
EYE CONTACT: Avoid eye contact. This product may be slightly irritating to the eyes upon direct contact. This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present a hazard to the eyes at ambient conditions. Exposure to mists and vapors may be irritating to the eyes.
SKIN CONTACT: Avoid skin contact. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in slight skin irritation.
INHALATION: Avoid prolonged inhalation of mist or vapors. This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation hazard at ambient conditions. Caution should be taken to prevent aerosolization or misting of this product. This product may be considered a low health hazard unless inhaled in very high concentrations. Acute and chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Symptoms of overexposure include respiratory tract irritation, headache, drowsiness and narcosis.
INGESTION: Do not ingest. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Signs and symptoms include behavioral disorders, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, visual disturbances, thirst, convulsions, cyanosis, and rapid heart rate. Signs and symptoms are central nervous system stimulation followed by depression, cardiopulmonary effects, and later potentially fatal kidney damage. Ingestion of small quantities (100 ml) may be fatal.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: No information available.
Other: A hazard due to inhalation may exist in circumstances where ethylene glycol is handled hot or where agitation or other mechanical operations may create an excessive fog or heavy mist. Ethylene glycol is not readily absorbed through skin in acutely toxic amounts. However, animal studies and human case reports suggest that absorption through the skin repeatedly over a
prolonged period of time can present a health hazard.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
CHRONIC
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may result in slight skin irritation.
Inhalation: Avoid prolonged inhalation of mist or vapors. Caution should be taken to prevent aerosolization or misting of this product. Acute and chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract.
Inhalation Toxicity: If warning discomfort from excessive concentrations are heeded, no health problems are expected. May lead to kidney, liver, blood and CNS disorders.

Reproductive and Developmental Toxicity: Ethylene glycol has been shown to produce reproductive and developmental effects in experimental animals. The no-effect doses for developmental toxicity for ethylene glycol given by gavage over the period of organogenesis has been shown to be 150 mg/kg/day for the mouse and 500 mg/kg/day for the rat. The relevance of these reproductive and
developmental animal studies to human exposures to ethylene glycol is currently unknown.
Teratogenicity: Ethylene glycol has been shown to produce dose-related teratogenic effects in rats and mice when given by gavage or in drinking water at high concentrations or doses.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
The absence of carcinogenic potential for ethylene glycol has been supported by numerous in vitro genotoxicity studies showing that it does not produce mutagenic or clastogenic effects. Based on data from long-term animal studies, ethylene glycol does not pose a carcinogenic risk to humans.
First Aid: From MSDS
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing for 15 minutes or until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.
Skin Contact: Wash contaminated area thoroughly with soap and water.
Inhalation: This material has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation exposure at ambient conditions. If vapor or mist is generated when the material is heated or handled, remove victim from exposure. If discomfort persists seek medical attention.
Ingestion: If person is conscious, give large quantities of water immediately. Induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Notes to Physician: Immediate medical treatment is imperative, especially if a large dose has been ingested. Administer alkali to correct acidosis. Hemodialysis is effective in the management of poisoning. Intravenous administration of ethanol has been effective.
