                        Emergency Overview

        Appearance & Odor: Dark amber liquid, petroleum odor
        Combustible. Harmful or Fatal if Swallowed.

As defined by OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard, this product is hazardous.

Potential Health Effects:

EYE:     Contact with liquid or vapor may cause mild irritation.

SKIN:    May cause skin irritation with prolonged or repeated contact.
         Practically non-toxic if absorbed following a single exposure. 

INHALATION: Excessive exposure may cause irritations to the nose, throat, lungs
            and respiratory tract. Central nervous system effects may include
            headache, dizziness, loss of balance and coordination, 
            unconsciousness, coma, respiratory failure and death. 

INGESTION:  Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal disturbance, including 
            irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The major health
            threat of ingestion occurs from the danger of aspiration of
            liquid drops into the lungs, particularly from vomiting. 
            Aspiration may result in chemical pneumonia, severe lung
            damage and even death. 

CHRONIC EFFECTS:  Liquid may be absorbed through the skin in toxic amounts
            if large areas of skin are repeatedly exposed. 

TARGET ORGANS: Central nervous system. 

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:

Irritation from skin exposure may aggravate existing open wounds, skin 
disorders, and dermatitis

See Section 11 for toxicology and carcinogenicity information on product

Eye Contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes.
             Call a physician if irritation persists.

Skin Contact:  Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with soap
            and water. Call a physician if irritation persists.
            Wash contaminated clothing prior to re-use. 

Inhalation: Remove person to fresh air. Keep person calm.
            If not breathing, give artificial respiration. 
            If breathing is difficult give oxygen. Call a physician. 

Ingestion:  Do NOT induce vomiting. Do not give liquids.
            Obtain immediate medical attention. 
            If spontaneous vomiting occurs, lean victim forward to reduce the 
            risk of aspiration. Monitor for breathing difficulties.
            Mouth can be rinsed to dissipate the taste. 

Note to Physicians:    Treat symptomatically. 


Flammable Properties:  In  accordance with OSHA definitions, this product is a 
Class II combustible liquid. 

Flash Point:               133 F (TCC)    Upper Explosive Limit:    7.5
Auto ignition Temperature: 494 F          Lower Explosive Limit:    0.6

Suitable Extinguishing Media:  Use extinguishers rated for Class B Fires, such 
         as dry Chemical, Halon, fire fighting foam or CO2.

Products of Combustion: Oxides of carbon.

Protection of Fire-Fighters: Firefighters should wear self-contained, 
        NIOSH-approved Breathing apparatus for protection against suffocation 
        and possible toxic decomposition products. Proper eye and skin
        protection should be provided. Use water spray to keep 
        fire-exposed containers cool and to knock down vapors
        which may result from product decomposition. 


Personal Precautions:  Use personal protection recommended in Section 8.

Environmental Precautions: Take precautions to prevent contamination of ground  
        and surface waters. Do not flush into sewers or storm drains. 

Methods for Containment &
Clean-up:    Remove all sources of ignition. Dike area to contain spill.
             Ventilate the area with fresh air. If in confined space or
             limited air circulation area, clean-up workers should
             wear appropriate respiratory protection. Recover or absorb
             Spilled material using an absorbent designed for chemical
             spills. Place used absorbents into proper waste containers. 


Handling Procedures: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame.
                Bond and ground containers during product transfer to
                reduce the possibility of static-initiated fire or explosion.
                Provide adequate ventilation during use. Do not breathe 
                vapors. Wash hands after use. 

Storage Procedures: Store in a cool dry area out of direct sunlight.
                Store in a well ventilated area. Keep out of reach of 

Aerosol Storage Level:    NA

Engineering Controls: Area should have ventilation to provide fresh air.
                Use local exhaust to prevent accumulation of vapors.
                Use mechanical means if necessary to maintain vapor 
                levels below the exposure guidelines. If working in a
                confined space, follow applicable OSHA regulations

Respiratory Protection: None required for normal work where adequate 
                ventilation is provided. Use NIOSH-approved self-
                contained positive pressure respirators in low
                circulation areas and for emergencies. 

Eye/face Protection: For normal conditions, wear safety glasses. Where there is
                reasonable probability of liquid contact, wear splash-
                proof goggles. 

Skin Protection: Use protective gloves such as nitrile, neoprene or PVC.
                Also, use full protective clothing if there is prolonged or
                repeated contact of liquid with skin.
