ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Little human data are available concerning adverse effects, although there is considerable opportunity for exposure to triethanolamine in occupational settings and in consumer products. Triethanolamine is anticipated to have low acute toxicity, with effects mainly resulting from its alkalinity (pH 9-11 in water). Significant caustic injury is not expected from this substance.
- The principal route of exposure causing toxicity is through the skin, with some exposure occurring from inhalation of vapor and aerosols. It may cause eye and skin irritation. The degree of irritancy depends upon triethanolamine concentration, exposure duration, and site.
- Irritant gases (nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide) and carbon monoxide can be produced when triethanolamine is heated to decomposition.
- Large doses of triethanolamine produced minimal toxicity when administered orally to laboratory animals. Mild to moderate eye irritation has been reported.
