4. First Aid Measures

     INGESTION:   If accidentally swallowed, dilute by drinking large
                  quantities of water.  Immediately contact poison control
                  center or hospital emergency room for any other
                  additional treatment directions.
     INHALATION:  If inhaled, remove to fresh air.  If not breathing,
                  give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth.
                  Call a physician.
     SKIN:        Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least
                  15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and
                  shoes.  Wash clothing and shoes before reuse.
     EYES:        Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at
                  least 15 minutes.  Eyelids should be held apart during
                  irrigation to insure water contact with entire surface of
                  eyes and lids.  Call a physician.


5. Fire Fighting Measures

     Autoignition Temperature            Not established
     Upper/Lower Flammable Limits        Not established
     Up/Lower Explosive Limits, % by Vol Not established
     Flash Point                         >200F
     Will burn.
     In case of fire, use dry chemical, foam or CO2.  Water may
     be ineffective, but should be used to keep fire-exposed containers
     cool.


6. Accidental Release Measures

     Sweep (scoop) up and remove to a chemical disposal area.  Prevent
     entry into natural bodies of water.


7. Handling and Storage



7.1 Handling

     Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
     practices.  These practices include avoiding unnecessary exposure and
     removal of the material from eyes, skin and clothing.
     Wash thoroughly after handling.  Always use appropriate Personal
     Protective Equipment (PPE).
     INHALATION:  Avoid breathing vapor.  Use with adequate
     ventilation.
     SKIN:  Avoid contact with skin and clothing.
     EYES:  Avoid contact with eyes.


7.2 Storage

     Store at room temperature.
     Store in a cool, well-ventilated area.
     Keep containers tightly closed.


8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection



8.1 Exposure Controls

     ENGINEERING CONTROLS:  The following exposure control techniques may
     be used to effectively minimize employee exposure: local exhaust
     ventilation, enclosed system design, process isolation and remote
     control in combination with appropriate use of personal protective
     equipment and prudent work practices.  These techniques may not
     necessarily address all issues pertaining to your operations.  We,
     therefore, recommend that you consult with experts of your choice to
     determine whether or not your programs are adequate.
     If airborne contaminants are generated when the material is heated or
     handled, sufficient ventilation in volume and air flow patterns should
     be provided to keep air contaminant concentration levels below
     acceptable criteria.


8.2 Personal Protection

     Where air contaminants can exceed acceptable criteria, use NIOSH/MSHA
     approved respiratory protection equipment.  Respirators should be
     selected based on the form and concentration of contaminants in air
     in accordance with OSHA laws and regulations or other applicable
     standards or guidelines, including ANSI standards regarding
     respiratory protection.  Use goggles if contact is likely.  Wear
     impervious gloves as required to prevent skin contact.
