NOTE: MSDS data pertains to the product as delivered in the original shipping 
container(s). Risk of adverse effects are lessened by the following all       
prescribed safety precautions, including the use of proper personal protective
Acute Effects   Routes of Entry     Dermal Contact.    Inhalation              
Eyes            Causes eye irritation. Inflammation of the eye is             
                characterized by redness, watering and itching.               
Skin            Direct contact may cause irritation and redness. Product may  
                be dermal absorbed. Skin inflammation is characterized by     
                itching, scaling, or reddening. Defatting properties, may     
                aggravate an existing dermatitis.                             
Inhalation      Avoid breathing vapors, spray or mists. Over-exposure by      
                inhalation may cause respiratory irritation. Can cause central
                nervous system (CNS) depression. High vapor concentrations can
                cause headaches, dizziness, drowsiness and nausea and may lead
                to unconsciousness.                                           
Ingestion       Harmful if swallowed. Aspiration hazard if swallowed. Can     
                enter lungs and cause damage. Vomiting increases risk of      
                chemical pneumonia or pulmonary edema caused by aspiration of 
                hydrocarbon solvents.                                         
Chronic effects Prolonged or repeated contact may dry skin and cause          
                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, heart, brain, 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  Wash affected area with soap or mild detergent and 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.                                          
Ingestion     ASPIRATION HAZARD. 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. Never give     
              anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical         
              attention immediately.

Flammability   Extremely flammable. (CSMA) Aerosol that may flash back.       
Fire hazard    FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR. Vapor may cause flash fire. Vapors 
               may accumulate in low or confined areas or travel a            
               considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back.  
               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  Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.  
Procedures     Fire-fighters should wear positive pressure self-contained     
               breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full turnout gear. Cool closed  
               containers exposed to fire with water.

Section 7. Handling and Storage                                               
Handling       Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame or any other  
               ignition source. Put on appropriate personal protective        
               equipment (see section 8). Avoid contact with eyes, skin and   
               clothing. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Use only with adequate 
               ventilation. Do not ingest. Wash thoroughly after handling.    
               Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.  Observe label      
Storage        CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Do not puncture or incinerate. Do not 
               store above the following temperature: 49�C (120.2�F). Store   
               away from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated   
               area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10) and    
               food and drink. Eliminate all ignition sources. Keep out of
