Prentox® Perm-X™ UL 4-4
EPA Signal Word: Active Ingredients (%): (CAS # 52645-53-1) Piperonyl Butoxide Technical (4%) Insecticide mixture Ingredients
Material: PEL
Piperonyl Butoxide Technical White Mineral Oil (CAS# 8042-47-50)(<92%) Primary Routes of Entry: Eye and skin contact, inhalation.
Prolonged or frequent repeated skin contact with permethrin may cause allergic reaction in some
individuals. Repeated and prolonged skin contact with piperonyl butoxide may cause skin irritation.
This product may cause temporary eye irritation.
Symptoms of Acute Exposure
Large, toxic doses of permethrin, administered to laboratory animals, have produced central nervous
system effects with symptoms that include diarrhea, salivation, bloody nose, tremors and intermittent
convulsions. Overexposure to permethrin via inhalation also produced hyperactivity and
Ingestion: Immediately call a physician or Poison Control Center or doctor. Do not induce vomiting
unless told by a poison control center or a doctor. Do not give any liquid to the person. Do not give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water and continue flushing until irritation
subsides. If irritation persists, seek medical attention (based on solvent).
Skin Contact: Take off contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15 to
20 minutes. Call a Poison Control Center for treatment advice.
Inhalation: The solvent in this product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an
inhalation exposure hazard during mixing and loading. Follow directions for use on product packaging
when applying this product.
Product: 655-898 Prentox® Perm-X™ UL 4-4
Note to Physician: Contains petroleum distillate – vomiting may cause aspiration hazard.

Unusual Fire, Explosion and Reactivity Hazards
The solvent in this product may generate dense smoke when burning. Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide
and other oxides may be generated as products of combustion.
In case of Fire
Use water fog, dry chemical, foam or CO2 extinguishing media. Wear full protective clothing and self-
contained breathing apparatus. Evacuate nonessential personnel from the area to prevent human
exposure to fire, smoke, fumes or products of combustion. Prevent use of contaminated buildings, area
and equipment until decontaminated. Use as little water as possible to prevent spread of contaminated
Wear chemical safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles, rubber gloves, rubber boots, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, to prevent contact with spilled material. For small spills, cover the spill with an absorbent material such as pet litter. Sweep up and place in an approved chemical container. Wash the spill area with water containing a strong detergent, absorb with pet litter or other absorbent material, sweep up and place in a chemical container. Seal the container and handle in an approved manner. Flush the area with water to remove any residue. Do not allow wash water to contaminate water supplies. Handling
Store the material in a well-ventilated, secure area, out of the reach of children and domestic animals. Do not store food, beverages or tobacco products in the storage area. Prevent eating, drinking, tobacco usage, and cosmetic application in areas where there is a potential for exposure to the material. Always wash thoroughly after handling. Exposure
Ingestion: Prevent eating, drinking, tobacco usage and cosmetic application in areas where there is a
potential for exposure to the material. Always wash thoroughly after handling.
Eye Contact: To avoid eye contact, wear safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles.
Skin Contact: To avoid skin contact, wear rubber gloves, rubber boots, long-sleeved shirt, and long
Inhalation: Avoid breathing vapors or mist.

Acute Toxicity/Irritation Studies

Oral LD50 (Rat): >500 to <5,000 mg./Kg. (female) Dermal: Dermal LD50 (Rat): >2,000 mg/Kg.
4-hour LC50 (Rat): Eye Contact:
Skin Contact:
Non-irritating. Skin Sensitization:
Permethrin is a skin sensitizer in some individuals. Mutagenic Potential:
Permethrin and Piperonyl Butoxide did not produce any mutagenic effects when tested in the Ames test. Reproductive Hazard Potential: Permethrin and Piperonyl Butoxide were not teratogenic when
Chronic/Subchronic Toxicity Studies:
Carcinogenic Potential:
Permethrin: A statistically significant increase of lung and liver tumors was observed in female mice receiving diets containing 375 and 750 mg/Kg/day over 85 weeks. Piperonyl Butoxide: Marginally higher incidences of benign liver tumors in mice were observed following lifetime high dose exposures. The significance of this observation is questionable and under review. The doses at which tumors were observed greatly exceeded human dietary intake. At anticipated dietary exposure levels, it is highly unlikely that piperonyl butoxide would result in carcinogenic effects. Toxicity of Other Components: The solvent in this product is classified by IARC as a Group 3
substance ("Not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans" based on inadequate animal evidence).
Product: 655-898 Prentox® Perm-X™ UL 4-4
IARC has also concluded that there is no evidence for the carcinogenicity of white oils when administered by routes other than by interperitoneal injection. The solvent is not carcinogenic according to the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard. Ecological
Summary of Effects: Permethrin and piperonyl butoxide are highly toxic to fish and other aquatic
organisms. Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal
areas below the mean high water mark other than as instructed on the product label. Do not contaminate
water by disposing of equipment washwater. Apply this product only as specified on the label.
Disposal: Do not reuse product containers. Dispose of product containers, waste containers, and
residues according to Federal, State and local health and environmental regulations.
