several minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.                    
First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for several 
minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.                            
First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Water may be given    
slowly. Contact physician immediately.

Symptoms/Injuries After Inhalation: Prolonged exposure may irritate the           
respiratory tract.                                                                
Symptoms/Injuries After Skin Contact: Prolonged contact may cause mild irritation.
Level 3 Aerosol - Contents under pressure. Dark amber oil-like liquid with        
distinctive odor. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause skin irritation.   
Ingestion harmful or fatal if not treated. Prolonged exposure to heavy            
concentrations of vapors may cause irritation to mucus membranes and airway.      
Respiratory diseases such as asthma and skin conditions such as rashes, cuts or   
similar skin diseases are generally aggravated by exposure. Do not handle near    
excessive heat, sparks, flame or strong oxidants. Incompatible with (material to  
avoid) strong oxidants like liquid chlorine or concentrated oxygen. This material 
could be a slipping hazard if spilled.                                            
Symptoms/Injuries After Eye Contact: May cause redness and mild irritation.       
Symptoms/Injuries After Ingestion: Can cause cramps and nausea.                   
Chronic Symptoms:

mixtures at or above the flash point. Empty product containers may contain product
residue. Do not pressurize, cut, heat, weld or expose containers to flame or other
sources of ignition.

General Measures: Leaking aerosol cans should be put into suitable container until
the internal pressure has dissipated. Use appropriate personal protective         
equipment (PPE). (see section 8) Soak up the spill with oil absorbents, sand or   
other non-combustible material. Place residue in suitable, covered and properly   
labeled container. Dispose in accordance with federal, state and local laws.

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Do not use product near any potential source of
ignition. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid breathing vapors. Wash          
thoroughly after handling. 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. For product use    
instructions, please see the product label.
