SOME OF THE CHEMICALS USED
Source of chemical list: FracFocus
Chemical descriptions: Multiple sources
TRADE NAME PURPOSE INGREDIENTS CHEMICAL ABSTRACT SERVICE NUMBER (CAS #)
37% HCL Cleans perforation HCL 7647-01-0
CI-100 Corrosion Inhibitor Methanol 67-56-1
   

Methanol has a high toxicity in humans. If ingested the median lethal dose is typically 4 fl oz.

    Propargyl Alcohol 107-19-7
   

Propargyl alcohol is a primary skin irritant and a severe eye and mucous membrane irritant. It is toxic by ingestion, inhalation, and skin adsorption. The oral LD50 for rats is 70 mg/kg (WARNING LABEL Moderate Toxicity).

MC B-8520 Antibacterial Agent 4,4-Dimethyloxazolidine 51200-87-4
   

Dimethyloxazolidine has been placed in Toxicity Category I for its effects as a severe eye irritant. 4,4-Dimethyloxazolidine is slightly to moderately toxic to birds on an acute basis and slightly toxic on a subacute basis. It demonstrates slight toxicity to both cold and warm freshwater fish, and is slightly toxic to freshwater invertebrates on an acute basis.

    3,4,4-Trimethyloxazolodine 75673-43-7
    2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol 124-68-5
   

AMP (2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol) is a skin irritant, severe eye irritant, and toxic by ingestion. Causes severe irritation. Inhalation may be fatal as a result of spasm, inflammation, and edema of laryns and bronchi, chemical pneumonitis, and pulmonary edema. Symptoms of exposure may include burning sensation, coughing, wheezing, laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache, nausea and vomiting.

    Formaldehyde Amine 56652-26-7
MC B-8650 Antibacterial Agent Glutaraldehyde 111-30-8
   

The following health effects have been reported in hospital workers exposed to glutaraldehyde: Throat and lung irritation; Asthma, asthma-like symptoms, and breathing difficulty; Nose irritation, sneezing, and wheezing; Nosebleed; Burning eyes and conjunctivitis; Rash-contact and/or allergic dermatitis; Staining of the hands (brownish or tan); Hives; Headaches and Nausea.

    Methanol 67-56-1
