Inhalation          Over-exposure by inhalation may cause respiratory         
                    irritation. Inhalation causes headaches, dizziness,       
                    drowsiness and nausea and may lead to unconsciousness. Can
                    cause central nervous system (CNS) depression.            
Ingestion           Harmful if swallowed. Aspiration hazard if swallowed. Can 
                    enter lungs and cause damage.                             
Chronic effects     Overexposure of this product by inhalation or absorption  
                    can produce central nervous system depression resulting in
                    headache, nausea and/or dizziness. Prolonged or repeated  
                    contact can defat the skin and lead to irritation,        
                    cracking and/or dermatitis. Contains material which may   
                    cause damage to the following organs: kidneys, liver,

Inhalation    Move exposed person to fresh air. If breathing difficult, give 
              oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Get     
              medical attention immediately.                                 
Ingestion     Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical

Fire hazard     In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the
                container may burst. Bursting aerosol containers may be       
                propelled from a fire at high speed. May emit toxic fumes     
                under fire conditions.

Section 6. Accidental Release Measures                                        
Spill Clean up  Eliminate all ignition sources. Put on appropriate personal   
                protective equipment (see section 8). Stop leak is without    
                risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and  
                mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry material  
                and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose 
                of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.                  
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. Do not get in eyes or on skin or       
                clothing. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Do not ingest. Use    
                only with adequate ventilation. Empty containers retain       
                product residue and can be hazardous. Wash thoroughly after   
                handling. Observe label precautions.                          
Storage         CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Do not puncture or incinerate        
                container. 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. Keep out of reach of children.

*NOTE: Hazard Determination System (HDS) ratings are based on a 0-4 rating    
scale, with 0 representing minimal hazards or no risk, and 4 representing     
significant hazards or risks

preparer may choose to provide them. HDS ratings are to be used with a fully  
implemented program to relay the meanings of this scale.
