6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment:                                                                  
Methods for Cleaning Up: WHERE EXPOSURE LEVEL IS NOT KNOWN, WEAR NIOSH APPROVED,  
POSITIVE PRESSURE, SELF-CONTAINED RESPIRATOR. WHERE EXPOSURE LEVEL IS KNOWN, WEAR 
NIOSH APPROVED RESPIRATOR SUITABLE FOR LEVEL OF EXPOSURE. WEAR SAME PROTECTIVE    
CLOTHING / EQUIPMENT AS IN SECTION 8 (EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION).   
SWEEP UP SPILLS AND PLACE IN A WASTE DISPOSAL CONTAINER. FLUSH AREA WITH WATER.   
ELIMINATE SOURCES OF IGNITION AND VENILATE. DUST DEPOSITS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO
ACCUMULATE ON SURFACES, AS THESE MAY FORM AN EXPLOSIVE MIXTURE IF THEY ARE        
RELEASED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE IN SUFFICIENT CONCENTRATION. AVOID DISPERSAL OF DUST 
IN THE AIR (I.E., CLEARING DUST SURFACES WITH COMPRESSED AIR).                    


6.4.  Reference to Other Sections
See heading 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.                         


SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                   


7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: AVOID BREATHING DUST. AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES, 
SKIN, AND CLOTHING. WASH THOROUGHLY AFTER HANDLING.                               
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: MAY CAUSE NUISANCE DUST UPON GRINDING OF MOLDED MATERIAL.      
MINIMIZE DUST GENERATION AND ACCUMULATION. ROUTINE HOUSEKEEPING SHOULD BE         
INSTITUTED TO ENSURE THAT DUSTS DO NOT ACCUMULATE ON SURFACES. DRY POWDERS CAN    
BUILD STATIC ELECTRICITY CHARGES WHEN SUBJECTED TO THE FRICTION OF TRANSFER AND   
MIXING OPERATIONS. PROVIDE ADEQUATE PRECAUTIONS, SUCH AS ELECTRICAL GROUNDING AND 
BONDING, OR INERT ATMOSPHERES.                                                    
Hygiene Measures:                                                                 


7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                               
Storage Conditions: FOR MAXIMUM STORAGE LIFE AND TO MAINTAIN MOLDABILITY, STORE AT
BELOW 70 °F (22°C). THESE COMPOUNDS ARE PACKAGED IN SPECIAL BAGS IMPERMEABLE TO   
STYRENE OR VINYL TOLUENE. DO NOT PUNCTURE BAG. CLOSE TIGHTLY AFTER PARTIAL USE.   


7.3.  Specific End Use(s)

8.2.  Exposure Controls
Appropriate Engineering      |ENGINEERING CONTROLS ARE NOT USUALLY NECESSARY IF   
Controls                     |GOOD HYGIENE PRACTICES ARE FOLLOWED. BEFORE EATING, 
                             |DRINKING, OR SMOKING, WASH FACE AND HANDS THOROUGHLY
                             |WITH SOAP AND WATER. AVOID UNNECESSARY SKIN CONTACT.
                             |IMPERVIOUS GLOVES AND APRON ARE RECOMMENDED TO      
                             |PREVENT SKIN CONTACT. FOR OPERATIONS WHERE EYE OR   
                             |FACE CONTACT CAN OCCUR, WEAR EYE PROTECTION SUCH AS 
                             |CHEMICAL SPLASH-PROOF GOGGLES OR FACE SHIELD. WHERE 
                             |EXPOSURES ARE BELOW THE PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE LIMIT  
                             |(PEL), NO RESPIRATORY PROTECTION IS REQUIRED. WHERE 
                             |EXPOSURES EXCEED THE PEL, USE RESPIRATOR APPROVED BY
                             |NIOSH FOR THE MATERIAL AND LEVEL OF EXPOSURE. SEE

SECTION 13: DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
13.1. Waste treatment methods
Waste Disposal Recommendations: THE INFORMATION OF RCRA WASTE CLASSIFICATION AND  
DISPOSAL METHODOLOGY PROVIDED BELOW APPLIES ONLY TO THE IDI PRODUCT, AS SUPPLIED. 
IF THE MATERIAL HAS BEEN ALTERED OR CONTAMINATED, OR IT HAS EXCEEDED ITS          
RECOMMENDED SHELF LIFE, THE GUIDANCE MAY BE INAPPLICABLE, HAZARDOUS WASTE         
CLASSIFICATION UNDER FEDERAL REGULATIONS (40 CFR PART 261 ET SEQ) IS DEPENDENT    
UPON WHETHER A MATERIAL IS A RCRA "LISTED HAZARDOUS WASTE" OR HAS ANY OF THE FOUR 
RCRA "HAZARDOUS WASTE CHARACTERISTICS". REFER TO 40 CFR PART 261.33 TO DETERMINE  
IF A GIVEN MATERIAL TO BE DISPOSED OF IS RCRA "LISTED HAZARDOUS WASTE";           
INFORMATION CONTAINED IN SECTION 15 OF THIS MSDS IS NOT INTENDED TO INDICATE IF   
THE PRODUCT IS A "LISTED HAZARDOUS WASTE" OR HAS A RCRA HAZARDOUS WASTE           
CHARACTERISTIC. THERE ARE FOUR CHARACTERISTICS DEFINED IN 40 CFR SECTION          
261.21-61.24: IGNITABILITY, CORROSIVITY, REACTIVITY, AND TOXICITY. TO DETERMINE   
IGNITABILITY, SEE SECTION 5 OF THIS MSDS (FLASH POINT). FOR CORROSIVITY, SEE      
SECTION 9 AND 14 (PH AND DOT CORROSIVITY). FOR REACTIVITY, SEE SECTION 10         
(INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS). FOR TOXICITY, SEE SECTION 2 (COMPOSITION). FEDERAL      
REGULATIONS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. STATE AND LOCAL REQUIREMENTS, WHICH MAY DIFFER 
FROM OR BE MORE STRINGENT THAN THE FEDERAL REGULATION, MAY ALSO APPLY TO THE      
CLASSIFICATION OF THE MATERIAL IF IT IS TO BE DISPOSED. IDI ENCOURAGES THE        
RECYCLE, RECOVERY AND REUSE OF MATERIALS, WHERE PERMITED, AS AN ALTERNATE TO      
DISPOSED AS A WASTE. IDI RECOMMENDS THAT ORGANIC MATERIAL CLASSIFIED AS RCRA      
PROVIDED THE FOREGOING FOR INFORMATION ONLY; THE PERSON GENERATING THE WASTE IS   
RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE WASTE CLASSIFICATIONS AND DISPOSAL METHOD.
