4.1.  Description of First Aid Measures
First-aid Measures General:                                                       
First-aid Measures After Inhalation: Move exposed person to fresh air. If not     
breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.   
Get medical attention immediately.                                                
First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: Flush affected skin with plenty of water.  
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Get medical   
attention if irritation develops.                                                 
First-aid Measures After 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          
First-aid Measures After 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. If affected person is conscious, give plenty of   
water to drink. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical
attention immediately.                                                            

4.2.  Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms/Injuries After Inhalation: Avoid breathing vapors, spray or mists.       
Over-exposure by inhalation may cause respiratory                                 
irritation. Can cause central nervous system (CNS) depression.                    
Symptoms/Injuries After Skin Contact: Causes skin irritation. Harmful if absorbed 
through the skin. Skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling,         
reddening or, occasionally, blistering.                                           
Symptoms/Injuries After Eye Contact: Causes eye irritation. Liquid in eye may     
cause irritation with possible damage if not rinsed immediately. Inflammation of  
the eye is characterized by redness, watering and itching.                        
Symptoms/Injuries After Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. May cause burns to mouth,
throat and stomach.                                                               
Chronic Symptoms: Contains material which may cause damage to the following       
organs: blood, kidneys, liver, lymphatic system, upper respiratory tract, skin,   
central nervous system (CNS), eye, lens or cornea. Repeated or prolonged contact  
with spray or mist may produce chronic eye irritation and severe skin irritation. 
Overexposure of this product by inhalation or absorption can produce central      
nervous system depression resulting in headache, nausea and/or dizziness.
