6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment: If possible, seal leaking container. Place leaking containers in 
a well-ventilated area, preferably an operating exhaust hood, or if necessary     
outdoors on an impermeable surface until appropriate packaging for the leaking    
container or its contents is available. Contain spill. Cover spill area with a    
fire-extinguishing foam. An appropriate aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) is       
recommended. Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with        
bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material.   
Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Remember, adding an absorbent   
material does not remove a physical, health, or environmental hazard. Collect as  
much of the spilled material as possible using non-sparking tools. Place in a     
metal container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Clean up  
residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized person.
Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the      
solvent label and SDS. Seal the container. Dispose of collected material as soon  
as possible.

precautions have been read and understood. Keep away from heat/sparks/open        
flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Do not spray on an open flame or other ignition
source. Do not pierce or burn, even after use. Do not breathe                     
dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do  
not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash thoroughly after handling.  
Avoid release to the environment. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents (eg.        
product. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid release to the environment. Avoid  
contact with oxidizing agents (eg. distances along the ground or floor to an      
ignition source and flash back.
