Major Major Minor Major
Effects of Acute Exposure to Product: Irritation can result from liquid, mist or vapor contact
respiratory tract, eyes and skin. Absorption through skin or inhalation of vapor at normal
temperatures poses minimal hazard. Ingestion of large amounts will cause diarrhea.
Aspiration can damage lungs and cause death.
Effects of Chronic Exposure to Product: Prolonged or repeated exposure can de-fat skin and
lead to dermatitis. May cause allergic skin response in some persons. Intense long-term
exposure may cause kidney problems.

Section VII - Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Steps to Be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled:
Soak up small spills with absorbent materials. Prevent run-off from reaching sewers, storm
drains or natural water bodies. No Reportable Quantity according to 40 CFR 302.
Waste Disposal Method:
Dispose of according to federal, state, and local laws.
Precautions to Be taken in Handling and Storing:
Avoid generating mists. Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not freeze. Ground
containers to avoid static accumulation. Empty containers may contain a hazardous residue.
Store in cool, well ventilated area away from incompatible materials and ignition sources.
Engineering Controls (Specify, ventilation enclosed process):
Mechanical ventilation, both dilution and local exhaust may be utilized to keep exposure
below the exposure limit. Extra ventilation should be provided in enclosed spaces and in hot

Section VIII - Control Measures and First Aid
Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, a trained person should
perform artificial respiration. Seek medical care.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give victim cold water. Never give anything
by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical attention.
Eye Contact: Flush eye for 15 minutes with water while retracting eyelids. Seek medical
Skin contract: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash affected area with soap and water.
Launder clothing before reuse. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.
Protective Gloves: Neoprene, Nitrile, Butyl Eye Protection: Chemical safety goggles
rubber or Polyvinyl alcohol are recommended. recommended. A face shield may be
warranted in some applications.
