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
Acute Effects    Routes of Entry    Dermal contact.  Eye contact.  Inhalation.
Eyes             Causes eye irritation.  Inflammation of the eye is           
                 characterized by redness, watering and itching.              
Skin             May cause skin irritation.  May cause skin sensitization.    
                 May cause allergic reactions in certain individuals.  Harmful
                 if absorbed through the skin.  Skin inflammation is          
                 characterized by itching, scaling, or reddening.             
Inhalation       Avoid breathing vapors, spray or mists.  Over-exposure by    
                 inhalation may cause respiratory irritation.  Can cause      
                 central nervous system (CNS) depression.                     
Ingestion        Harmful if swallowed.  Ingestion may cause nausea, weakness  
                 and central nervous system effects.  Aspiration hazard if    
                 swallowed.  Can enter lungs and cause damage.                
Chronic effects  Prolonged or repeated contact may dry skin and cause         
                 irritation.  Repeated or prolonged contact with spray or mist
                 may produce chronic eye irritation and severe skin           
                 irritation.  Repeated or prolonged inhalation of vapors may  
                 lead to chronic respiratory irritation.  Overexposure of this
                 product by inhalation or absorption can produce central      
                 nervous system depression resulting in headache, nausea      
                 and/or dizziness.  Contains material which may cause damage  
                 to the following organs:  kidneys, liver, central nervous    
                 system (CNS).

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.  Get medical attention if   
                 irritation develops.                                         
Inhalation       Move exposed person to fresh air.  If not breathing, give    
                 artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult, give     
                 oxygen.  Get medical attention immediately.                  
Ingestion        Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical   
                 personnel.  If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low  
                 so that 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 medial      
                 attention immediately.

Fire Hazard      Flammable liquid and vapor.  In a fire or if heated, a       
                 pressure increase will occur and the container may burst,    
                 with the risk of a subsequent explosion.  Gas may accumulate 
                 in low or confined areas or travel a considerable distance to
                 a source of ignition and flash back, causing fire or         
                 explosion.  Bursting aerosol containers may be propelled from
                 a fire at high speed.                                        
Fire-Fighting    Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
                 Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment.  
                 Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water.  Do not   
                 release runoff from fire to sewers or waterways.

Section 7.   Handling and Storage                                             
Handling         Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (s ee       
                 section 8).  Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame
                 or any other ignition source.  Do not get in eyes or on skin 
                 or clothing.  Do no breathe vapor or mist.  Do not ingest.   
                 Use only with adequate ventilation.  Watch for accumulation  
                 in low confined areas.  Observe label precautions.  Wash     
                 thoroughly after handling.  Do not reuse container.          
Storage          CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE.  Store in a cool, well-ventilated   
                 area away from incompatible materials and ignition sources.  
                 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.
