Emergency Overview

Route(s) of Entry:    Inhalation?  Yes    Skin? Yes   Eyes? Yes   Ingestion? Yes
Potential Health Effects (Acute and Chronic)
            Eye Irritation: Moderate to strong eye irritation. Based on data
from components or similar material.

            Skin Irritation: May cause skin irritation. Based on data from
components or similar materials. Prolonged or repeated skin contact as from
clothing wet with material may cause dermatitis. Symptoms may include redness,
edema, drying, and cracking of the skin.

            Inhalation Toxicity:  High concentrations may cause headaches,
dizziness, nausea, stupor, and other central nervous system effects leading to
visual impairment, difficulty breathing and convulsions.

            Respiratory Irritation: If material is misted or if vapors are
generated from heating , exposure may cause irritation of mucous membranes and
the upper respiratory tract. Based on data from components and similar

            Dermal Sensitization:  No data available to indicate product or
components may be a skin sensitizer.

            Inhalation Sensitization: No data available to indicate product or
components may be respiratory sensitizers.

            Chronic Toxicity; Repeated overexposure to aliphatic mineral spirits
such as Stoddard Solvent can cause chronic nervous system disease.
Signs and Symptoms of Exposure
            See Potential Health Effects.
OSHA Hazard Classes:
            HEALTH HAZARDS;  Irritant
            PHYSICAL HAZARDS;  Combustible Liquid
            TARGET ORGANS & EFFECTS:  Eyes, Skin, Central Nervous System,
            Respiratory System.

                              4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Emergency and First Aid Procedures
            DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If conscious, give 2 glasses of water.
            Aspiration of material due to vomiting can cause chemical
pneumonitis which can be fatal. Get immediate medical attention. If vomiting
occurs naturally, the casualty should lean forward to reduce the risk of

            EYE: Flush immediately with water for at least 15 minutes. Get
immediate medical attention.

            SKIN: Wash with soap and water. Immediately remove contaminated
clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops. Launder contaminated
clothing before reuse.

            INHALATION:  Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects
are observed. If breathing is labored, administer oxygen. If breathing has
stopped, apply artificial respiration.

Note to Physician
            Treat symptomatically.

                            5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Flash Pt:         > 108.00 F (42.2 C)    Method Used:  PMCC
Explosive Limits: LEL: unknown  UEL:  unknown
Autoignition Pt:  No data.

Fire Fighting Instructions
            Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus. Water may
cause splattering. Liquid will float on water. Water spray may be used to keep
containers cool to avoid rupturing.

Flammable Properties and Hazards
            Containers may burst upon heating. Toxic fumes, gases or vapors may
evolve on burning of the liquid. Vapors may be heavier than air and may travel
along the ground to a distant ignition source and flash back.

Hazardous Combustion Products
            Smoke, aldehydes, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxides of
incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons.

Extinguishing Media
            CO2, dry chemical, or foam. Water can be used to cool and protect
exposed material.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media
            No data available.

                         6.  ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Released Or Spilled
            Evacuate  all non-essential personnel. Personal Protective Equipment
must be worn. Remove sources of ignition. Ventilate spill area. Prevent entry
into sewers and waterways. Pick up free liquid using non-sparking equipment
and/or non-flammable absorbents for recycle and/or disposal. Residual
liquid can be absorbed on inert material.

                             7.  HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions To Be Taken in Handling
            Keep away from potential sources of ignition. Avoid breathing
vapors. Do not discharge into drains or the environment, dispose to an
authorized waste collection point. Wash thoroughly after handling. Empty
containers retain material residue. Do not cut, weld, braze, solder, drill,
grind or expose containers to heat, flame, spark or other sources of

Precautions To Be Taken in Storing
            Do not store near potential sources of ignition. Store in well
ventilated area away from heat, sparks and open flame.


Respiratory Equipment (Specify Type)
            Use NIOSH/MSHA approved full face respirator with a combination
organic vapor and dust/mist cartridge if the recommended exposure limit is
exceeded. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space,
for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Eye Protection
            Chemical goggles or face shield.

Protective Gloves

Other Protective Clothing
            Long sleeve shirt is recommended. Wear either a chemical protective
suit or apron when potential for contact with material exists. Use neoprene or
nitrile rubber boots when necessary to avoid contaminating shoes.

Engineering Controls (Ventilation etc.)
            Use local exhaust ventilation to control mists or vapors. Additional
ventilation or exhaust may be required to maintain air concentrations below
recommended exposure limits. Contains mineral oil. Under conditions which may
generate mists, observe the OSHA PEL of 5 mg per cubic meter, ACGIH STEL of 10
mg per cubic meter.
