     -- See Footnote C.
     Footnote C:  As of the date of issuance of this document, this
     material has not been listed by NTP, classified by IARC nor regulated
     by OSHA as a carcinogen.

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:        Flush with plenty of water.  Remove contaminated
                  clothing.  Call a physician if irritation persists.
     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 available
     Upper/Lower Flammable Limits        Not available
     Up/Lower Explosive Limits, % by Vol 12.8/1.0 %
     Flash Point                         -104.5°C (-156°F) pensky-martens c.c.
     EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE.
     DO NOT INCINERATE (BURN) CONTAINER.  AVOID HEAT.  KEEP CONTAINER
     BELOW 120 F (50 C). High temperatures may cause bursting.  Do not
     place container on radiator, stove, in direct sunlight or near other
     heat sources.  DO NOT PUNCTURE CONTAINER.  Contents under pressure
     will discharge. AVOID OPEN FLAMES, SPARKS, PILOT LIGHTS.  DO NOT
     SMOKE.  Vapor may ignite explosively.  Spray mist or vapor
     evaporating from a deposited film is heavier than air and may settle
     in low places or travel outward to a source of ignition and flashback.
     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

 
     Eliminate all ignition sources.  Soak up with absorbent material 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:  USE WITH ADEQUATE VENTILATION.  To avoid breathing
     vapors or spray mist, open windows and doors or use other means, such
     as an exhaust fan to ensure fresh air entry during application and
     drying.  If you experience eye watering, headache or dizziness,
     increase fresh air, wear respiratory protection (NIOSH/MSHA TC23C or
     equivalent), or leave the area.
     SKIN:  Avoid contact with skin and clothing.
     EYES:  Avoid contact with eyes.

7.2 Storage

 
     Store in a cool, dry place.
     Keep containers tightly closed.
     Do not store at temperatures above 50 C.
     Keep away from heat, sparks, flame and other ignition sources.

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.
