3.  HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Emergency Overview
      Danger: Vapor Harmful. Contents  Under Pressure.

OSHA Regulatory Status:
      This material is classified as hazardous under OSHA regulations.
Route(s) of Entry:    Inhalation? Yes    Skin: Yes Eyes? Yes   Ingestion? N.A.
Potential Health Effects (Acute and Chronic)
      Eye: May cause slight temporary eye irritation. Vapors may irritate the
eyes at concentrations of 100 ppm.

      Skin: Short single exposure may cause skin irritation. Prolonged exposure
may cause severe skin irritation, even a burn. A single prolonged exposure is
not likely to result in the material being absorbed through skin in harmful
amounts.

      Inhalation: Dizziness may occur at concentrations of 200 ppm.
Progressively higher levels may also nasal irritation, nausea, in coordination,
and drunkenness. Very high levels or prolonged exposure could lead to
unconsciousness and death.

      Ingestion: Single dose oral toxicity is considered to be extremely low.
Swallowing  large amounts may cause injury of aspirated into the lungs.
This may be rapidly absorbed through the lungs and result in injury to
other body systems.

       Chronic Effects: Repeated contact with skin may cause drying or
flaking of skin. Excessive or long term exposure to vapors may increase
sensitivity to epinephrine and increase myocardial irritability.

Signs and Symptoms of Exposure
       Eye: Irritation.

       Skin: Varying degrees of irritation ranging from mild to severe to
possible chemical burns depending upon amount and length of exposure.

       Inhalation: Dizziness, nasal irritation, nausea, in coordination,
and drunkenness.

       Ingestion: Aspiration hazard. Irritation of the gastrointestinal
tract or other discomfort.
OSHA Hazard Classes:
       HEALTH HAZARDS: Toxic, Irritant.
       PHYSICAL HAZARDS: Compressed Gas.
       TARGET ORGANS & EFFECTS: Lungs, Kidney, Eyes, Skin, Liver, Central
       Nervous System, Respiratory System.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Emergency and First Aid Procedures
       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. Call a physician immediately.
Note to Physician
       Because rapid absorption may occur though lungs if aspirated and
cause systemic effects, the decision of whether to induce vomiting or not
should be made by a physician. If lavage is performed, suggest enotracheald
and/or esophageal control. If burn is present, treat as any thermal burn, after
decontamination. Exposure may increase myocardial irritability. Do not
administer sympathomimetic  drugs unless absolutely necessary. No specific
antidote.


5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash Point:        No data. Method Used: TCC
Explosive Limits:   LEL: No data.     UEL: No data
Fire Fighting Instructions
      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.
Flammable Properties and Hazard
      Containers are under pressure, and may rupture if exposed to extended
periods of high heat, or exposure to extreme heat.
Hazardous Combustion Products
      Hydrogen chloride. Trace amounts of phosgene, and chlorine.
Extinguishing Media
      This material does not burn. Use extinguishing agent suitable for
surrounding fire.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media
      No data available.


6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Release Or Spilled
      Personal Precautions: Use personal protection recommended in Section 8.
Do not breathe vapors.

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


      Methods for Containment and Clean-up: 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.


7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions To Be Taken In Handling
      Vapors of this product are heavier than air and will collect in low areas.
Make sure ventilation removes vapors from low areas. Do not eat, drink or
smoke while using this product.
Precautions To Be Taken In Storing
      Store in a cool dry area out of direct sunlight. Aerosol cans must be
maintained below 120 degrees F to prevent cans from rupturing. Keep out of 
reach of children.


8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Respiratory Equipment (Specify Type)
      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 Protection
      For normal conditions, wear safety glasses. Where there is reasonable
probability of liquid contact, wear splash-proof goggles.
Protective Gloves
      Use protective gloves such as PVA, PTFE or Viton.
Other Protective Clothing
      Use full protective clothing if there is prolonged or repeated contact of
liquid with skin.
Engineering Controls  (Ventilation etc.)
      Areas should have ventilation to provide fresh air. Use local exhaust to
prevent accumulation of vapors.  Provide proper exhaust to remove vapors from
low areas. Use mechanical means if necessary to maintain vapor levels below the
exposure guidelines.  If working in a confined space, follow applicable OSHA
regulations.
