for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do.      
Continue rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.    
First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Call a physician or poison control center   
immediately. Rinse mouth. Do not induce vomiting. If                            
vomiting occurs, keep head low so that stomach content doesn't get into the

SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                               

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Powder. Alcohol resistant foam. Water. Water
Dry chemicals. Carbon dioxide (CO2).                                            
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this
will spread the fire.                                                           

5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: Extremely flammable aerosol.                                       
Explosion Hazard: Contents under pressure. Pressurized container may explode
exposed to heat or flame.                                                       

5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire:                                                    
Firefighting Instructions: In case of fire: Stop leak if safe to do so. Do not  
move cargo or vehicle if cargo has been exposed to heat. If tank, rail car or
truck is involved in a fire, ISOLATE for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all
also consider initial evacuation for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions.   
ALWAYS stay away from tanks engulfed in flame. Move containers from fire area if
you can do so without risk. Cool containers exposed to heat with water spray and
remove container, if no risk is involved. Containers should be cooled with water
to prevent vapor pressure build up. For massive fire in cargo area, use unmanned
hose holder or monitor nozzles, if possible. If not, withdraw and let fire burn 
Protection During Firefighting: Firefighters must use standard protective       
equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with                           
face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces, SCBA.                

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES                                          

6.1.  Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures
General Measures: Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and    
upwind of spill/leak. Keep out of low areas. Wear appropriate protective
and clothing during clean-up. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled
unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapors or   
mists. Avoid breathing gas. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Local 
authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained. For 
personal protection, see section 8 of the SDS.                                  

6.1.1.      For Non-emergency Personnel
Protective Equipment:                                                           
Emergency Procedures:                                                           

6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment:

6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Contact local authorities in case of spillage
drain/aquatic environment. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Do not contaminate water. Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the

6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment: Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or 
flames in immediate area). Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.) away from 
spilled material.                                                               
Methods for Cleaning Up: Large Spills: Stop leak if you can do so without risk. 
Move the cylinder to a safe and open area if the leak is irreparable. Isolate
until gas has dispersed. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible.
with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or
and place into containers. Use water spray to reduce vapors or divert vapor
drift. Scoop up used absorbent into drums or other appropriate container.
entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas. Following product     
recovery, flush area with water.                                                
Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean
thoroughly to remove residual contamination.                                    
For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                 

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: 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. Do not cut, weld, solder, drill, grind,
or expose containers to heat, flame, sparks, or other 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. Do not re-use empty containers. Avoid       
breathing mist or vapor. Avoid breathing gas. Avoid contact with skin. Avoid    
contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged exposure. Avoid contact with clothing. Use
in well-ventilated areas. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash  
hands thoroughly after handling. Observe good industrial hygiene practices.

instructions, please see the product label.                                     
Hygiene Measures: When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Always observe good   
personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and
eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective   
equipment to remove contaminants.                                               

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities

Storage Conditions: Level 3 Aerosol. Store in a well-ventilated place.
container. Protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding    
50°C/122 °F. Do not puncture, incinerate or crush. Do not handle or store near
open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. This material can accumulate
charge which may cause spark and become an ignition source. Store away from     
incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS). Keep out of the reach of
