Although I am not familiar with un-du adhesive remover, when I wish
to learn something about the essential properties of a product I
look it up in a current edition of: Clinical Toxicology of
Commercial Products.  This is generally better than checking out the
MSDS of a product, because it is designed for physicians who may
have to quickly deal with inadvertent poisoning.

The copy I have near my desk is not current, so I am unable to
access the solvent data you request.

In this vein, Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials is
useful, as is, Hazardous Materials Reference Book: Cross Reference
by Daniel J. and Julie A. Davis, and Lange's Handbook of Poisoning
