                        SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE
   INHALATION of vapor or spray mist.

   EYE or SKIN contact with the product, vapor or spray mist.

EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE
EYES;  Irritation.

SKIN:  Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause irritation.

INHALATION: Irritation of the upper respiratory system.
May cause nervous system depression. Extreme overexposure may result in
unconsciousness and possibly death.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
Headache, dizziness, nausea, and loss of coordination are indications of
excessive exposure to vapors or spray mists.  Redness and itching or burning
sensation may indicate eye or excessive skin exposure.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE
None generally recognized.

CANCER INFORMATION
For complete discussion of toxicology data refer to Section 11.


                          SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES


EYES:  Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15 minutes. Get medical
attention.

SKIN:  Wash a affected area thoroughly with soap and water. Remove contaminated
clothing and launder before re-use.

INHALATION:  If affected, remove from exposure. Restore breathing. Keep warm and
quiet.

INGESTION:  Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.


                        SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES


FLASH POINT                       LEL      UEL
        Propellant  < 0 F         1.0      36.5

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
        Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, Foam

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
   Containers may explode when exposed to extreme heat. Applications to hot
surfaces requires special precautions. During emergency conditions overexposure
to decomposition products may cause a health hazard. Symptoms may not be
immediately apparent. Obtain medical attention.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES
   Full protective equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus should
be used. Water spray may be ineffective. If water is used, fog nozzles are
preferable. Water may be used to cool closed containers to prevent pressure
build-up and possible autoignition or explosion when exposed to extreme heat.


                     SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES


STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED
     Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate the area. Remove with inert
absorbent.


                         SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE


STORAGE CATEGORY
    Not Available

PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE
    Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Vapors will accumulate readily
and may ignite explosively. During use and until all vapors are gone:  Keep area
ventilated - Do not smoke - Extinguish all flames, pilot lights, and heaters -
Turn off stoves, electric tools and appliances, and any other sources of
ignition. Consult NFPA Code. Use approved Bonding and Grounding procedures.
Contents under pressure. Do not puncture, incinerate, or expose to temperature
above 120 F. Heat from sunlight, radiators, stoves, hot water, and other heat
sources could cause container to burst. Do not take internally. Keep out of the
reach of children.


                SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION


PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN USE
    Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid
breathing vapor and spray mist. Wash hands after using.

VENTILATION
    Local exhaust preferable. General exhaust acceptable if the exposure to
materials in  Section 2 is maintained below applicable exposure limits.
Refer to OSHA Standards 1910.94, 1910.107, 1910.108.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
    If personal exposure cannot be controlled below applicable limits by
ventilation, wear a properly fitted organic vapor/particulate respirator
approved by NIOSH/MSHA for protection against materials in Section 2.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES
    None required for normal application of aerosol products where minimal skin
contact is expected. For long or repeated contact, wear chemical resistant
gloves.

EYE PROTECTION
    Wear safety spectacles with unperforated sideshields.

OTHER PRECAUTIONS
    Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents
can be harmful or fatal.

                      SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION


CHRONIC HEALTH HAZARDS
    Ethylbenzene is classified by IARC as possibly carcinogenic to humans (2B)
based on inadequate evidence in humans and sufficient evidence in laboratory
animals. Lifetime inhalation exposure of rats and  mice to high ethylbenzene
concentrations resulted in increases in certain types of cancer, including
kidney tumors in rats and lung and liver tumors in mice. These effects were not
observed in animals exposed to lower concentrations.  There is no evidence that
ethylbenzene causes cancer in humans. Prolonged overexposure to solvent
ingredients in Section 2 may cause adverse effects to the liver, urinary and
reproductive systems. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged
overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
