6.1.  Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures
General Measures: Evacuate area. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot     
surfaces. - No smoking. Use only non-sparking tools. Ventilate the area with
air. Warning! A motor could be an ignition source and could cause flammable
or vapors in the spill area to burn or explode. Refer to other sections of this 
SDS for information regarding physical and health hazards, respiratory
ventilation, and personal protective equipment.                                 

6.1.1.      For Non-emergency Personnel

to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water.                         

6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment:                                                                
Methods for Cleaning Up: If necessary outdoors on an impermeable surface until  
appropriate packaging for the leaking container or its contents is available.   
Contain spill. Cover spill area with a fire-extinguishing foam designed for use
solvents, such as alcohols and acetone, that can dissolve in water. An AR - AFFF
type foam is recommended. Working from around the edges of the spill inward,
with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent      
material. Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Remember, adding an 
absorbent material does not remove a physical, health, or environmental hazard. 
Collect as much of the spilled material as possible using non-sparking tools.   
Place in a metal container approved for transportation by appropriate
Clean up residue with detergent and water. Seal the container. Dispose of       
collected material as soon as possible.
