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 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 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 immediately.

Fire hazard                 Combustible liquid and vapor. Vapors may          
                            accumulate in low or confined areas or travel a   
                            considerable distance to a source of ignition and 
                            flash back. In a fire or if heated, a pressure    
                            increase will occur and the container may burst,  
                            with the risk of a subsequent explosion.          
Fire-Fighting Procedures    Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the       
                            surrounding fire. Fire-fighters should wear       
                            appropriate protective equipment. Cool closed     
                            containers exposed to fire with water. Do not     
                            release runoff from fire to sewers or waterways.  
Section 6. Accidental Release Measures                                        
Spill Clean up       Eliminate all ignition sources. Put on appropriate       
                     personal protective equipment (see section 8).  Stop leak
                     if 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. Observe label           
                 precautions. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not reuse   
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 reach of children.
