7. HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                       
Handling             Use in accordance with good industrial workplace         
Precautions:         practices. Avoid unnecessary contact. Wash thoroughly    
                     after handling. Use with good ventilation.               
Storage              Keep containers tightly closed and in a cool             
Requirements:        well-ventilated place. Always store this material in     
                     closed labeled containers. Store away from acids.        
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION                                    
Engineering          Eye wash stations and emergency showers should be        
Controls:            immediately available.                                   
Protective           Eyes and Face: Standard safety glasses with splash       
Equipment:           shields typically offer adequate protection. Where       
                     excessive splashing or spraying is possible, a face      
                     shield should be used. Do not wear contacts.             
                     Skin and clothing: Excessive contact should be avoided.  
                     Nitrile gloves, boots and aprons will provide adequate   
                     protection when contact cannot be avoided. Remove and    
                     wash any contaminated clothing immediately. Wash         
                     thoroughly after handling.                               
                     Respiratory: Good general ventilation should be          
                     sufficient to control airborne levels. Maintain airborne 
                     concentrations below OSHA established exposure limits of 
                     ingredients in Section 2.  Use NIOSH approved respirator 
                     if ventilation is not adequate enough to maintain levels 
                     below these limits.                                      
Exposure Guidelines  The Blaster Chemical Companies takes no responsibility   
/ Other:             for determining what measures are required for personal  
                     protection in any specific application. This information 
                     should be used with discretion.
