safety precautions, including the use of proper personal protective equipment.
Acute Effects         Routes of   Dermal contact. Eye contact. Inhalation     
Eyes                  Causes eye irritation. Inflammation of the eye is       
                      characterized by redness, watering and itching.         
Skin                  Causes skin irritation. May be harmul 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. 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 produce hearing impairment or change.     
                      Contains material which may cause damage to the         
                      following organs: blood, kidneys, lungs, adrenals,      
                      liver, heart, spleen, 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 affected 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. Never give anything
                   by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention

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 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    
Procedures         fire. 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  
                   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
                   not puncture, incinerate or store the container at         
                   temperatures above 49�C (120�F) or in direct sunlight. Keep
                   out of the reach of children.
