upwind of spill/leak. Keep out of low areas. Wear appropriate protective
and clothing during clean-up. Avoid breathing mist or vapor. Avoid breathing
Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate  
protective clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation. Local authorities should be   
advised if significant spillages cannot be contained. For personal protection,

6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment:                                                                
Methods for Cleaning Up: Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares,    
sparks, or flames in immediate area). Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.)
away from spilled material. This material is classified as a water pollutant
the Clean Water Act and should be prevented from contaminating soil or from     
entering sewage and drainage systems which lead to waterways. Stop the flow of  
material, if this is without risk. Collect spillage. Wipe up with absorbent     
material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual      
contamination. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Obtain special instructions before use. Do
handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Pressurized  
container: Do not pierce or burn, even after use. Do not use if spray button is 
missing or defective. Do not spray on a naked flame or any other incandescent   
material. Do not smoke while using or until sprayed surface is thoroughly dry.
with adequate ventilation. Open doors and windows or use other means to ensure a
fresh air supply during use and while product is drying. If you experience any  
symptoms listed on this label, increase ventilation or leave the area. Do not
weld, solder, drill, grind, or expose containers to heat, flame, sparks, or
sources of ignition. Use caution around energized equipment. The metal container
will conduct electricity if it contacts a live source. This may result in injury
to the user from electrical shock and/or flash fire. Avoid breathing mist or    
vapor. Avoid breathing gas. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid  
prolonged exposure. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Should be handled in
systems, if possible. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Observe
industrial hygiene practices. Avoid release to the environment. Do not empty
drains. For product usage instructions, please see the product label.           
Hygiene Measures:  When using do not smoke. Always observe good personal hygiene
measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating,
and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove
