DANGER!  Flammable aerosol.  Contents under pressure.  Combustible Liquid and 
Vapor.  Harmful or fatal if swallowed.  If swallowed, may be aspirated and    
cause lung damage.  May cause eye, skin and respiratory tract irritation.  Use
only with adequate ventilation.  Keep away from heat, sparks, flames and all  
other sources of ignition.                                                    
                                                                              
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 headache, dizziness and nausea.    Intentional abuse   
may be harmful or fatal.                                                      
Skin Contact:  May cause skin irritation with short-term exposure with        
redness, itching and burning of the skin.  Prolonged and/or repeated contact  
may produce defatting and 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
and other central nervous system effects.  This product is an aspiration      
hazard.  If swallowed, can enter the lungs and may cause chemical pneumonitis,
severe lung damage and death.                                                 
Chronic Effects:  Prolonged or repeated skin contact may defat the skin       
resulting in irritation and dermatitis.                                       
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:  Preexisting eye, skin and         
respiratory conditions may be aggravated by exposure.

Yes X  No  This product contains small amount of titanium dioxide, which is   
listed by IARC as a suspected carcinogen (Group 2B).  Titanium dioxide only   
presents a risk of cancer by inhalation of very fine dust.  In this product,  
the titanium dioxide is incorporated into the grease and is not present as a  
respirable dust.  There is no exposure to respirable titanium dioxide dust in 
the normal use of this product.

4 - First Aid Measures                                                        
                                                                              
Ingestion (Swallowed):  Aspiration Hazards.  DO NOT induce vomiting.  Call    
physician, poison control center or WD-40 Safety Hotline at 1-888-324-7596    
immediately.                                                                  
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 and persists,
get medical attention.                                                        
Inhalation (Breathing):  If irritation is experienced, move to fresh air.  Get
medical attention if irritation or other symptoms develop or 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 against    
bursting cans.                                                                
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  Contents under pressure.  Keep away from 
ignition source and open flame.  Exposure of containers to extreme heat and   
flames can cause them to rupture often with violent force.  Flammable 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 only 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.  Do not store in direct sunlight or above 120°F. U.F.C (NFPA 30B)

The oral toxicity of this product is estimated to be greater than 5,000 mg/kg 
based on an assessment of the ingredients.  This product is not classified as 
toxic by established criteria.  It is an aspiration hazard.  This product     
contains small amount of titanium dioxide, which is listed by IARC as a       
suspected carcinogen (Group 2B).  Titanium dioxide only presents a risk of    
cancer by inhalation of very fine dust.  In this product, the titanium dioxide
is incorporated into the grease and is not present as a respirable dust.      
There is no exposure to respirable titanium dioxide dust in the normal use of 
this product.                                                                 
None of the components of this product is considered as a reproductive hazard.
