2. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: DANGER! Flammable liquid and vapor. May cause eye, skin and
respiratory tract irritation. May cause asphyxiation, or brain, lung or other organ injury if inhaled,
swallowed or absorbed by the skin.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYES: Liquid is severely irritating to the eyes. High vapor concentrations are also irritating.
SKIN: Liquid is moderately irritating to the skin. Prolonged or repeated contact can result in drying
of the skin which may result in skin irritation and dermatitis (rash). Liquid may be absorbed
through the skin.
INGESTION: Ingestion may cause headache, dizziness, fatigue, and central nervous system
depression along with gastrointestinal disturbances.
INHALATION: Vapors may be irritating to the nose, throat, and respiratory tract. Exposure to high
vapor concentrations may cause central nervous system (CNS) depression. Aspiration of liquid
may cause pneumontitis, pulmonary edema, and hemorrhaging.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
ACUTE TOXICITY: Irritation as noted above. Early to moderate CNS depression may be
evidenced by giddiness, headache, dizziness, and nausea; in extreme cases, unconsciousness
and death may occur.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED: Pre-existing eye and skin disorders may be aggravated

CHEMICALS KNOWN TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE CANCER AND BIRTH DEFECTS OR OTHER REPRODUCTIVE HARM."
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYES: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids
open. Seek medical aid if irritation persists.
SKIN: Flush skin with soap and water while removing contaminated clothing. If irritation occurs,
seek immediate medical attention. Do not reuse clothing or shoes until thoroughly cleaned.
INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting, and seek immediate medical attention. Do not attempt to give
any liquids if victim is unconscious.
INHALATION: Immediately remove victim to fresh air. If victim is not breathing, give artificial
respiration. If breathing is difficult, oxygen should be administered by qualified personnel. Seek
immediate medical attention.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: If the victim is a child, give no more than 1 glass of water and 15cc (1
tablespoon) syrup of ipecac. If symptoms such as loss of gag reflex, convulsions or
unconsciousness occur before emesis, gastric lavage should be considered following intubation
with a cuffed endotracheal tube.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASHPOINT AND METHOD: 1?Fahrenheit, Tagliabue Closed Cup
FLAMMABLE LIMITS IN AIR BY VOLUME: 0.3% - 12.8%
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: No data available.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use water fog, "alcohol" foam, dry chemical, or CO2.
500A88 ?Low VOC Flat Gray Spray Ready Lacquer Page 3 of 7
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide and unidentified organic compounds
may be formed during combustion.
EXPLOSION HAZARDS: When heated above the flash point, this material emits flammable vapors
which, when mixed with air, can burn or be explosive. Fine mists or sprays may be flammable at
temperatures below the flash point.
FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: WARNING! Flammable Liquid. Clear the fire area of unprotected
personnel. Do not enter confined fire space without full bunker gear; including a positive pressure
NIOSH approved SCBA. Cool fire exposed containers with water. If water is used, fog nozzles
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
WATER SPILL: Keep material out of storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways.
GENERAL PROCEDURES: WARNING. Flammable. Ventilate area of leak or spill for at least 24
hours or until it has been declared safe. Remove all sources of ignition. Stop the leak if there is no
risk involved. Clean-up personnel require protective clothing and respiratory protection from
vapors. Absorb liquid with inert material. Only specially trained or qualified personnel should
handle the emergency.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
GENERAL PROCEDURES: Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Surfaces that are hot may
ignite liquid even in the absence of sparks or flame. Extinguish pilot lights, cigarettes, and turn off all
other sources of ignition prior to use, and until all vapors are gone. Keep containers tightly closed
and upright to prevent leakage.
COMMENTS: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! Empty containers retain product residue and
can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers
to heat, flame, sparks static electricity, or other sources of ignition.
