4.1.  Description of First Aid Measures
First-aid Measures General: Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the      
material(s) involved, and take precautions to                                   
protect themselves.                                                             
First-aid Measures After Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest
in a position comfortable for breathing. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician.                                       
First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: Wash off with soap and water. Get medical
attention if irritation develops and persists. Take off contaminated clothing
wash before reuse.                                                              
First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of
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. Do not induce vomiting.                                            

4.2.  Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms/Injuries: Exposed individuals may experience eye tearing, redness, and 
discomfort. Vapors have a narcotic effect and may cause headache, fatigue,      
dizziness and nausea. May cause drowsiness or dizziness.                        
Symptoms/Injuries After Inhalation:                                             
Symptoms/Injuries After Skin Contact:                                           
Symptoms/Injuries After Eye Contact:                                            
Symptoms/Injuries After Ingestion:                                              
Chronic Symptoms:                                                               

4.3.  Indication of Any Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment
Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Keep victim under
observation. Symptoms may be delayed.                                           

SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                               

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Foam. 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. This product is a poor conductor of electricity and
become electrostatically charged. If sufficient charge is accumulated, ignition
flammable mixtures can occur. Static electricity accumulation may be
increased by the presence of small quantities of water or other contaminants.   
Material will float and may ignite on surface of water.                         

5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire:                                                    
Firefighting Instructions: In case of fire: Stop leak if safe to do so. Move    
containers from fire area if you can do so without risk. Containers should be   
cooled with water to prevent vapor pressure build up.                           
Protection During Firefighting: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and     
protective clothing.                                                            

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. Remove all possible sources of     
ignition in the surrounding area. Wear appropriate protective equipment and     
clothing during clean-up. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material   
unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapors or   
mists. Avoid breathing gas. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Use   
appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Local authorities 
should be advised if 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:                                                           
Emergency Procedures:                                                           

6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Use appropriate  
containment to avoid environmental contamination.                               

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 product is miscible in water. Stop the flow of 
material, if this is without risk. Dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.  
Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly
remove residual contamination. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or
confined areas. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.                  

6.4.  Reference to Other Sections
See heading  8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.                      

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                 

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Minimize fire risks from flammable and       
combustible materials (including combustible dust and static accumulating
or dangerous reactions with incompatible materials. Handling operations that can
promote accumulation of static charges include but are not limited to: mixing,  
filtering, pumping at high flow rates, splash filling, creating mists or sprays,
tank and container filling, tank cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading,   
vacuum truck operations. Pressurized container: Do not pierce or burn, even
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. Avoid breathing mist or vapor. Avoid
gas. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid prolonged exposure. Use only in    
well-ventilated areas. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Observe  
good industrial hygiene practices. For product usage instructions, please see
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 

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                             
Storage Conditions:  Pressurized 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 an open flame, heat or other sources of      
ignition. This material can accumulate static charge which may cause spark and  
become an ignition source. Avoid spark promoters. These alone may be
to remove static electricity. Store in a well-ventilated place. Store away from 
incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS). Keep out of the reach of
