                        SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

 
*** EMERGENCY OVERVIEW ***: Vapors irritating to eyes and respiratory tract.
Vapors may cause flash fire or explosion.
 
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE - EYE CONTACT: Liquid, aerosols and vapors of this 
product are irritating and can cause pain, tearing, reddening and swelling 
accompanied by a stinging sensation and/or a feeling like that of fine dust in 
the eyes. 
 
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE - SKIN CONTACT: Prolonged or repeated contact can result

in defatting and drying of the skin which may result in skin irritation and 
dermatitis (rash).
 
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE - INHALATION: Harmful if inhaled. Headaches, dizziness, 
nausea, decreased blood pressure, changes in heart rate and cyanosis may result 
from over-exposure to vapor or skin exposure. Prolonged inhalation may be 
harmful.
 
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE - INGESTION: No hazard in normal industrial use. This 
material may be harmful or fatal if swallowed. Corrosive and may cause severe 
and permanent damage to mouth, throat and stomach.
 
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE - CHRONIC HAZARDS: Overexposure may cause nervous system

damage. Overexposure may cause lung damage. Overexposure may cause kidney 
damage. 
 
PRIMARY ROUTE (S) OF ENTRY: SKIN CONTACT  SKIN ABSORPTION   INHALATION  
INGESTION  EYE CONTACT. 
 

                          SECTION 4- FIRST AID MEASURES

 
FIRST SID - EYE CONTACT:  Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. Get 
medical attention, if irritation persists. 
 
FIRST AID - SKIN CONTACT:  Immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove 
clothing. Get medical attention immediately. Wash clothing separately before 
reuse. 
 
FIRST AID - INHALATION;  Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial 
respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get immediate medical 
attention.
 
FIRST AID - INGESTION;  Get medical attention immediately. If swallowed, do NOT
induce vomiting. Give victim a glass of water or milk. Call a physician or 
poison control center immediately. Never give anything by mouth to an 
unconscious person. 
 

                        SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
FLASH POINT:  -156 F        LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT:  0.8 %
                            UPPER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT:  36.0 %
 
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE:  ND
 
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:  ALCOHOL FOAM  CO2  DRY CHEMICAL  FOAM WATER FOG
 
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS:  Vapors can travel to a source of ignition 
and flash back. "Empty" containers retain product residue (liquid and/or vapor) 
and can be dangerous.  DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT, WELD, BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL, 
GRIND, OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC ELECTRICITY, OR 
OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION; THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH.  Empty 
drums should be completely drained, properly bunged and promptly returned to a 
drum reconditioner, or properly disposed of.
 
SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PROCEDURES: Containers can build up pressure if exposed to 
heat (fire). As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus 
pressure-demand (MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent) and full protective gear.
 

                     SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Absorb spill with 
inert material (e.g. dry sand or earth), than place in a chemical waste 
container.
 

                         SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

 
HANDLING:  Wash thoroughly after handling.
 
STORAGE; Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Keep from freezing.
 

                SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 
ENGINEERING CONTROLS:  Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary to control any

air contaminants to within their TLVs during the use of this product.
 
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: A NIOSH/MSHA  approved air purifying respirator with an 
organic vapor cartridge or canister may be permissible under certain 
circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure 
limits. Protection provided by air purifying respirators is limited. Use a 
positive pressure air supplied respirator if there is any potential for an 
uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or any other circumstances 
where air purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.
 
SKIN PROTECTION: Where contact is likely, wear chemical resistant gloves, a 
chemical suit, rubber boots, and chemical safety goggles plus a face shield.
 
EYE PROTECTION:  Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles) and a face 
shield. 
 
OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: STANDARD INDUSTRIAL CLOTHING STANDARDS SHOULD BE 
FOLLOWED.
 
HYGIENIC PRACTICES: Wash hands before eating. Remove contaminated clothing and 
wash before reuse. Use only in a well ventilated area. Follow all MSDS/label 
precautions even after container is emptied because they may retain product 
residues. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Avoid breathing vapors 
from heated material. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing.
