Inhalation The   initial   effects   of   overexposure   due   to inhaling   the   solvent   will   be   nose   and   eye irritation,    lightheadedness,    dizziness,    mental dullness,  and  uncoordination.  If  these  symptoms are   present,   the   affected   person    should    be removed from the contaminated area to fresh air. Once  the  person  is  removed  to  an  area  where there  is  fresh  air,  recovery  is  usually  rapid,  If recovery   is   not   rapid,   symptoms   worsen,   or breathing has stopped, start artificial respiration and obtain medical attention at once. Skin Contact Perchloroethylene is an excellent solvent and because  of  this  it  removes  natural  oils  from  the skin. Prolonged and/or repeated contact with the liquid may produce rough and  dry  skin  which  is more susceptible to infections. Exposures that are infrequent  or  of  short  duration  should  have  no adverse effects; however, in some persons a mild irritation, consisting of a mild temporary redness, may occur. There   is   little   practical   hazard   from   the standpoint of skin absorption. Although perchloroethylene can penetrate the human  skin in toxic quantities following massive or prolonged exposure,  there  is  little  absorption  through  the skin under normal conditions of use.    Personnel whose  skin  comes  in  contact  with  the  solvent should wash the affected area with large amounts of   warm   water   and   soap.   Any   contaminated clothes should be removed and dry cleaned. Eye Contact While the danger of serious injury is little or none  if  perchloroethylene  is  splashed  into  the eyes, a great deal of pain and redness may result. The eyes should always be flushed or rinsed with cool    water    immediately    after    contact    and immediate medical attention sought. STOWAGE OF THE DRY-CLEANING SOLVENT NSTM     S9086-WK-STM-010     of     Sept     87 contains   stowage   requirements   for   chlorinated cleaning   solvents.   Chapter   670   includes   the stowage,   handling,   and   disposal   of   hazardous general-use consumables. Do not stow tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethylene) near heat sources,  or  allow  contact  with  hot  surfaces.  Do 48.89 Figure 6-2.-Multimatic dry-cleaning machine. 6-6
