DANGER!  Flammable aerosol.  Contents under pressure.  Harmful of fatal is    
swallowed.  Extremely Flammable Liquid and Vapor.  Vapor may cause flash fire.
If swallowed, may be aspirated and cause lung damage.  May cause eye, skin and
respiratory tract irritation.  May cause allergic skin reaction               
(sensitization).  Avoid eye contact.  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 possible dermatitis.  Repeated contact may result in
an allergic reaction.

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.

4 - First Aid Measures                                                        
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 and 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 against    
bursting cans.                                                                
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  Contents under pressure.  Keep away from 
ignition sources and open flames.  Exposure of containers to extreme heat and 
flame can cause them to rupture often with violent force.  Flammable liquid   
vapor.  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, 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)
