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 cause nasal irritation, nausea,      
incoordination, 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 though the lungs and result in injury to      
other body systems.

      Chronic Effects:  Repeated contact with skin may cause dying of 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 through 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 endotracheal 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 Pt:      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 Hazards
      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 Released 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 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.
