General Advice                                                            
Eyes               |Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water 
                   |for at least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held apart
                   |and away from eyeball for thorough rinsing. Do not   
                   |permit victim to rub eyes. Get immediate medical     
Skin               |Immediately flush skin with copious amounts of water 
                   |for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated  
                   |clothing and shoes. Do not rub or apply ointment to  
                   |affected area. Obtain medical attention if irritation
                   |persists. Wash clothing before re-use.               
Inhalation         |Remove subject immediately to fresh air. Give        
                   |artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. If
                   |breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get immediate   
                   |medical attention.                                   
Ingestion          |Contact a Poison Control Center immediately. Do NOT  
                   |induce vomiting. If conscious, have victim swallow   
                   |large amounts of water. Do not give anything by mouth
                   |to an unconscious or convulsing person. Get immediate
                   |medical attention.

Procedures                 |fire-fighting procedures for which they have  
                           |been trained. Remove all sources of ignition. 
                           |Move exposed containers from fire area if it  
                           |can be done without risk. Firefighters should 
                           |wear proper protective equipment and          
                           |self-contained breathing apparatus with full  
                           |facepiece operated in positive pressure mode.

                           |fire-exposed containers cool.                 
Explosion Data             |Unusual fire and Explosion hazard: When       
                           |heated, mixture will give off ammonia gas, a  
                           |strong irritant to eyes, respiratory tract,   
                           |and mucous membranes. Other toxic gases       
                           |produced are oxides of nitrogen, carbon       
                           |monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. Closed 
                           |containers exposed to heat may develop        
                           |pressure and explode. Alcohol vapors are      
                           |heavier than air and may travel a considerable
                           |distance to a source of ignition and flash    
                           |back. Alcohols burn with a pale blue flame    
                           |which may be extremely hard to see under      
                           |normal lighting conditions. Personnel may be  
                           |able to feel the heat of the fire without     
                           |seeing flames. Extreme caution must be        
                           |exercised in fighting alcohol fires.

Notes: For large spills, stop leak if you can do so without risk.         
Extinguish all sources of ignition. Wear self-contained breathing         
apparatus, chemical safety goggles and full protective clothing. Ventilate
area. Spilled liquids should be contained and not washed into sewers or   
ground water. Contain by diking with non-combustible absorbent materials  
and place residue in DOT approved waste container.  Comply with all       
applicable local, state and federal regulations on spill reporting,       
handling and disposal of waste.                                           
7.  HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                  
Handling: All ignition sources should be eliminated. Remove closure       
carefully; internal pressure may be present. Keep closure up to prevent   
leakage. When contents are being transferred, metallic containers must be 
bonded to the receiving container and grounded to avoid static discharges.
Never use pressure to empty containers. Replace closure carefully after   
each opening.                                                             
Storage: Protect containers from physical damage. Detached or outside     
storage is preferred. Inside storage should be in an NFPA approved        
flammable liquids storage room or cabinet. Store in corrosion-proof area  
at temperatures below 77 degrees F (25oC). Do not store in direct         
sunlight. Isolate from incompatible materials. Keep containers tightly

                   |sufficient to achieve full conformance with          
                   |acceptable exposure limits, use NIOSH approved       
                   |respiratory protection equipment. Care must be taken 
                   |to assure that any respirator chosen is capable of   
                   |protecting the user from both ammonia and ethyl      
                   |alcohol vapors. In some cases, a self-contained
