Acute Effects   Routes of Entry         Eye contact. Skin contact. Inhalation.
Eyes            Causes eye irritation. Inflammation of the eye is             
                characterized by redness, watering and itching.               
Skin            Causes skin irritation. Defatting properties, may aggravate an
                existing dermatitis May cause skin sensitization. May cause   
                allergic reactions in certain individuals. 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 (CAN) 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.                                 
Chronic effects Defatting to the skin. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may 
                produce chronic inflammation or dermatitis, characterized by  
                redness, scaling or itching.

Eye Contact     Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally     
                lifting the upper and lower eyelids.  Check for and remove any
                contact lenses.  Get medical attention immediately.

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 if swallowed. Can enter lungs and cause     
                damage. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by    
                medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the heat should be kept
                low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. If affected person

                mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry material  
                and place in an appropriate waste disposal container.         
Section 7.  Handling and Storage

                clothing. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Do not ingest. Use    
                only with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after         
                handling. Do not reuse container.                             
Storage         Eliminate all ignition sources. Store in original container   
                protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and             
                well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see   
                section 10) and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed 
                and sealed until ready for use. Store between the following   
                temperatures: 40�F - 120�F (4.4�C - 49�C). Keep out of the
