NOTE: MSDS data pertains to the product as delivered in the original shipping 
container(s). Risk of adverse effects are lessened by following all prescribed
safety precautions, including the use of proper personal protective equipment.
Acute Effects            Routes of Entry    Dermal contact. Eye contact.      
                                            Inhalation.                       
     Eyes            Causes eye burns. Direct contact with eyes can cause     
                     irreversible damage, including blindness.                
     Skin            Causes skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed       
                     through the skin. Prolonged exposure may result in skin  
                     burns and ulcerations. Skin inflammation is characterized
                     by itching, scaling, reddening or, occasionally,         
                     blistering.                                              
     Inhalation      Avoid breathing vapors, spray or mists. Over-exposure by 
                     inhalation may cause respiratory irritation. Can cause   
                     central nervous system (CNS) depression.                 
     Ingestion       May be harmful if swallowed. Aspiration hazard if        
                     swallowed. Can enter lungs and cause damage. Ingestion   
                     may cause nausea, weakness and central nervous system    
                     effects.                                                 
Chronic effects      Overexposure of this product by inhalation or absorption 
                     can produce central nervous system depression resulting  
                     in headache, nausea and/or dizziness. Repeated or        
                     prolonged exposure to spray or mist may produce          
                     respiratory tract irritation leading to frequent attacks 
                     of bronchial infection. Repeated or prolonged contact    
                     with spray or mist may produce chronic eye irritation and
                     severe skin irritation. Contains material which may cause
                     damage to the following organs: blood, kidneys, lungs,   
                     liver, upper respiratory tract, skin, eyes, central      
                     nervous system (CNS), ears.

Section 4. First Aid Measures                                                 
Eye Contact        Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally  
                   lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove  
                   any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10      
                   minutes. Get medical attention immediately.                
Skin Contact       Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove       
                   contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to rinse for at  
                   least 10 minutes. Wash clothing before reuse. Get medical  
                   attention if irritation develops.                          
Inhalation         Move exposed person to fresh air. If irritation persists,  
                   get medical attention.                                     
Ingestion          Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical 
                   personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low 
                   so the vomit does not enter the lungs. If affected person  
                   is conscious, give plenty of water to drink. Never give    
                   anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical    
                   attention immediately.

Fire hazard                 CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. In a fire or if heated, a
                            pressure increase will occur and the container may
                            burst, with the risk of a subsequent explosion.   
                            Bursting aerosol containers may be propelled from 
                            a fire at high speed.                             
Fire-Fighting Procedures    Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the       
                            surrounding fire. Cool closed containers exposed  
                            to fire with water. Fire-fighters should wear     
                            appropriate protective equipment.

Spill Clean up       Large spills are unlikely due to packaging.              
                                                                              
Section 7. Handling and Storage                                               
Handling         Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section
                 8). Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame or any  
                 other ignition source. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid        
                 prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Do not breathe vapor
                 or mist. Don not ingest. Use only with adequate ventilation. 
                 Observe label precautions. Wash contaminated clothing before 
                 reusing. Wash thoroughly after handling.                     
Storage          CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Do not puncture, incinerate or store
                 the container at temperatures above 49°C(120°F) or in direct 
                 sunlight. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding      
                 stuffs. Keep out of the reach of children.
