Symptoms of Overexposure:                                                     
Inhalation: Mist or vapor can irritate the throat and lungs. High             
concentrations may cause nasal and respiratory irritation and central nervous 
system effects such as headaches, dizziness and nausea. Intentional abuse may 
be harmful or fatal.

may produce defatting and possible dermatitis.                                
Eye Contact: Contact may be irritating to eyes. May cause redness, stinging,  
swelling and tearing.                                                         
Ingestion: This product has low oral toxicity. If swallowed, this material may
cause irritation of the mouth, throat and esophagus. Swallowing may cause     
gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness,           
drowsiness, loss of consciousness, delirium and other central nervous system

Ingestion (Swallowed): Aspiration Hazard. DO NOT induce vomiting. Call        
physician, poison control center or the WD-40 Safety Hotline at 1-888-324-7596
Eye Contact: Flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses
if present after the first 5 minutes and continue flushing. Get medical       
attention if irritation persists.                                             
Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. If irritation develops or persists,   
get medical attention.                                                        
Inhalation (Breathing): If irritation is experienced, move to fresh air. Get  
medical attention if irritation or other symptoms develop and persist.        
5 - Fire Fighting Measures                                                    
Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or foam. Cool
fire exposed containers with water.                                           
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Firefighters should always wear positive    
pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Cool
fire-exposed containers with water. Use shielding to protect from bursting    
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Contents under pressure. Keep away from   
ignition sources and open flames. Exposure of containers to extreme heat and  
flames can cause them to rupture often with violent force. Combustible liquid 
and vapor. This material can release flammable vapors when heated above       
ambient temperatures. Vapors can cause a flash fire. Vapors are heavier than  
air and may travel along surfaces to remote ignition sources and flash back. A
vapor and air mixture can create an explosion hazard in confined spaces.      
6 - Accidental Release Measures                                               
Wear appropriate protective clothing (see Section 8). Eliminate all sources of
ignition and ventilate area. Contain and collect liquid with an inert         
absorbent and place in a container for disposal. Clean spill area thoroughly. 
Report spills to authorities as required.                                     
7 - Handling and Storage                                                      
Handling: Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged contact with skin. Avoid   
breathing vapors or aerosols. Use with adequate ventilation. Keep away from   
heat, sparks, pilot lights, hot surfaces and open flames. Unplug electrical   
tools, motors and appliances before spraying or bringing the can near any     
source of electricity. Electricity can burn a hole in the can and cause       
contents to burst into flames. To avoid serious burn injury, do not let the   
can touch battery terminals, electrical connections on motors or appliances or
any other source of electricity. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after    
handling. Keep containers closed when not in use. Keep out of the reach of    
children. Do not puncture, crush or incinerate containers, even when empty.   
Storage: Store in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from incompatible        
materials and heat, sparks or open flame. Do not store in direct sunlight or  
above 120�F. U.F.C. (NFPA 30B) Level 1 Aerosol.
