brief contact with the liquid will not result
in significant irritation unless evaporation
is impeded. Frequent or prolonged contact may
irritate and cause dermatitis. Low order of toxicity.
Skin contact may aggravate and existing dermatitis
vapor/aerosol concentrations (greater than
approximately 700 PPM, attainable at elevated
temperatures well above ambient) are irritating
to the eyes and the respiratory tract, and
may cause headaches, dizziness, anesthesia,
drowsiness, unconsciousness, and other central
nervous system effects, including death. Negligible
hazard at ambient temperature (-18 to 38 Deg.
C; 0 to 100 Deg. F).
amounts of this product aspirated into the
respiratory system during ingestion or vomiting
may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury,
possibly progressing to death. Low order of
eyes with large amounts of water until irritation
subsides. If irritation persists, get medical
with large amounts of water; use soap if available.
Remove grossly contaminated clothing, including
shoes, and launder before reuse.
proper respiratory protection, immediately
remove the affected victim from exposure. Administer
artificial respiration if breathing is stopped.

hazard, liquid can burn upon heating to temperatures
at or above the flashpoint. Static discharge,
material can accumulate static charges which
can cause an incendiary electrical discharge. "Empty" containers
retain product residue (liquid and/or vapor)
and can be dangerous. DO NOT pressurize, cut,
weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose
such containers to heat, flame, sparks, static
electricity, or other sources of ignition;
THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH.
Empty drums should be completely drained, properly
bunged and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner,
or properly disposed of.
water spray to cool fire exposed surfaces and
to protect personnel. Isolate "fuel" supply
from fire. Use foam, dry chemical, or water
spray to extinguish fire. Avoid spraying water
directly into storage containers due to danger
of boilover. This liquid is volatile and gives
off invisible vapors. Either the liquid or
vapor may settle in low areas or travel some
distance along the ground or surface to ignition
sources where they might ignite or explode.

of material, if possible to do so without hazard.
For small spills implement cleanup procedures;
for large spills implement cleanup procedures
and, if in public area, keep public away and
advise authorities. Also, if this product is
subject to CERCLA reporting (see Section 15
REGULATORY INFORMATION) notify the National
Response Center. Prevent liquid from entering
sewers, watercourses, or low areas. Contain
spilled liquid with sand or earth. Recover
by pumping or with a suitable absorbent. Consult
an expert on disposal of recovered material
and ensure conformity to local disposal regulations.

in surrounding and downwind areas of fire and
explosion hazard and request all to stay clear.
Remove from surface by skimming or with suitable
absorbents. If allowed by local authorities
and environmental agencies, sinking and/or
suitable dispersants may be used in non-confined
waters. Consult an expert on disposal of recovered
material and ensure conformity to local disposal
use proper bonding and/or grounding procedure.

|STORAGE AND HANDLING:
container closed. Handle and open containers
with care. Store in a cool, well ventilated
place away from incompatible materials. Do
NOT handle or store near an open flame, heat
or other sources of ignition. Protect material
from direct sunlight. Material will accumulate
static charges which may cause an electrical
spark (ignition source). Use proper bonding
and/or grounding procedures. Do NOT pressurize,
cut, heat, or weld containers. Empty product
containers may contain product residue. Do
NOT reuse empty containers without commercial
cleaning or reconditioning.
EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
use of mechanical dilution ventilation is recommended
whenever this product is used in a confined
space, is heated above ambient temperatures,
or is agitated.
open systems where contact is likely, wear
safety glasses with side shields, long sleeves,
and chemical resistant gloves. Where contact
may occur, wear safety glasses with side shields.
Where concentrations in air may exceed the
limits given in this Section and engineering,
work practice or other means of exposure reduction
are not adequate, NIOSH/MSHA approved respirators
may be necessary to prevent overexposure by
