safety precautions, including the use of proper personal protective equipment.
Acute Effects          Routes of Entry       Dermal contact. Eye contact.     
Eyes           Causes eye irritation. Inflammation of the eyes is             
               characterized by redness, watering and itching.                
Skin           May cause skin irritation. May be 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

Ingestion      Harmful if swallowed. 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 exposure to the      
                       substance can product target organs damage. Contains   
                       material which may cause damage to the following       
                       organs: blood, kidneys, lungs, the nervous system,     
                       liver, heart, spleen, central nervous system (CNS),

Section 4. First Aid Meausres                                                 
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 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

Flammability   FLAMMABLE (CSMA Method)                                        
Fire hazard    Flammable aerosol. Flammable liquid and vapor. In a fire or if 
               heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may   
               burst, with the risk of 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.  
Procedures     Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water.             
               Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment.    
Section 6. Accidental Release Measures                                        
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. Do not get in eyes or on skin or      
                 clothing. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Do not ingest. Use   
                 only with adequate ventilation. Observe label precautions.   
                 Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Wash thoroughly   
                 after handling.                                              
Storage          CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE. Eliminate all ignition sources. Do  
                 no puncture, incinerate or store the container at            
                 temperatures above 49�C (120�F) or in direct sunlight. Keep  
                 out of the reach of children.
