SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                               

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water fog. Foam. Dry chemical powder. Carbon
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: During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed.              
Contents under pressure. Pressurized container may rupture when exposed to heat
Explosion Hazard:                                                               

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: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full     
protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.                               

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. Many gases are heavier than air and
will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers,
tanks). Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up.     
Emergency personnel need self-contained breathing equipment. Do not touch
containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing.  
Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Local authorities should be
if significant spillages cannot be contained. For personal protection, see
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.                  

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. 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.                                            

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: 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 get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.
Use only in well-ventilated areas. Wear appropriate personal protective
Observe good industrial hygiene practices. For product usage instructions,
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 

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                             
Storage Conditions: Level 1 Aerosol.                                            
Contents under pressure. Do not expose to heat or store at temperatures above   
120°F/49°C as can may burst. Do not puncture, incinerate or crush. Do not handle
or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. Store in a      
well-ventilated place. Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of
the SDS).

8.2.  Exposure Controls
Appropriate Engineering      |Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes
Controls                     |per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should
                             |be matched to conditions. If applicable, use
                             |enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other   
                             |engineering controls to maintain airborne levels  
                             |below recommended exposure limits. If exposure    
                             |limits have not been established, maintain
                             |levels to an acceptable level.

hazardous waste (See 40 CFR Part 261.20  261.33). Consult authorities before    
disposal. Contents under pressure. Do not puncture, incinerate or crush. Do not 
allow this material to drain into sewers/water supplies. Do not contaminate
waterways or ditches with chemical or used container. Dispose of                
contents/container in accordance with local/regional/national regulations.
