3.  HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION                                                    
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS                                                      
INHALATION:  Repeated or excessive inhalation of vapor can cause irritation,  
dizziness, and nausea.                                                        
Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling vapors, may be  
harmful or fatal.  No chronic effects known.                                  
INGESTION:  Can cause digestive system upsets and nausea.  Avoid sucking into 
lungs.  No chronic effects known.                                             
SKIN CONTACT:  Can cause irritation.  No chronic effects known.               
EYE CONTACT:  Flush with water for 15 minutes.  Get medical attention if      
effects persist.                                                              
4.   FIRST AID MEASURES                                                       
EYE:  Flush with water for 15 minutes.  Get medical attention if effects      
SKIN:  Remove contaminated clothing.  Wash effected areas thoroughly with soap
and water.  Launder clothing before re-use.                                   
INHALATION:  Remove to fresh air.  Use artificial respiration and oxygen if   
INGESTION:  Rinse mouth.  Never give anything orally to someone who is        
unconscious.  Give several large glasses of water to drink.  Do not induce    
vomiting.  If liquid is sucked into lungs, get prompt medical attention.      
5.   FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES                                                   
FLASH POINT:  Sprayed vapors can be ignited with a flame.  Flame length 14 -  
16 inches or less with no flash back to nozzle by CPCS test [16 CFR           
1500.3(b)(6)(viii)] is rated non-flammable.                                   
NFPA 30B:  Aerosol Level 3                                                    
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:  Water Spray, Alcohol Foam, Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical 
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES:  Aerosol cans, under pressure, can explode  
when heated above 140oF (60oC) and become projectiles.  Treat contents as     
flammable liquid/explosive vapor fire.  Keep unignited containers cool with   
water.  Vapors, that are heavier than air, can collect in low areas and may   
travel to distant source of ignition and flashback.  Avoid flow of material to
sewers.  See Sec. 8 for personal protection.                                  
6.   ACCIDENTIAL RELEASE MEASURES                                             
SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES:  Remove all ignition sources.  Provide good         
ventilation.  Take up spills and put into closed containers.  Avoid flow to   
sewers.  Floors may be slippery.  See Section 8 for other protective measures.
