SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                               

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water fog. Foam. Dry chemical powder. Carbon
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: None known.                                     

5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: Contents under pressure. Pressurized container may rupture when    
exposed to heat or flame.                                                       
Explosion Hazard: During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed.         

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:                                                               

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

6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment:                                                           
Emergency Procedures:                                                           

6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to
do so. Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Inform    
appropriate managerial or supervisory personnel of all environmental releases.  

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. Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk.           
Methods for Cleaning Up: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece).  
Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination. For waste disposal,
section 13 of the SDS. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or

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.
Avoid prolonged exposure. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Wear appropriate   
personal protective equipment. Avoid release to the environment. Observe good   
industrial hygiene practices. 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 

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
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).
