EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
: Drink two glasses of water. Induce
vomiting by touching back of throat with fingers.
: Flush eyes with copious amounts of water.
Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
: Wash skin with soap and water. Get medical
attention if irritation persists.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN:
There is no specific antidote for exposure to this
material. Treatment of overexposure should be directed at
the control of symptoms and the clinical condition.
Toxicology studies have shown the material to be of very
low acute toxicity.
MEDICAL CONDITION AGGRAVATED BY OVEREXPOSURE:
A knowledge of the available toxicology information and of
the physical and chemical properties of the material
suggests that overexposure is unlikely to aggravate
existing medical conditions.
EXPOSURE During the formulation of this product, wear rubber
CONTROL METHODS gloves, goggles, and protective clothing while handling.
Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling.
Ventilation is not required under normal use conditions.

Dike spill area to prevent spill from spreading. Absorb
the spilled material with an inert absorbent such as
granular clay or sawdust. Shovel or sweep the absorbed
spill into covered containers for proper disposal. (See
Rinse the spill area and any tools or implements several
times with soapy water. Contain and absorb this rinsate
with inert absorbents and place into the same covered
container as the spilled material.
Spills to the soil can be shoveled directly into covered
containers for disposal. If the spill occurred to a body
of water, immediately notify the appropriate authorities
downstream of the spill so that they can decide what if
any further action is needed.
Depending on local spill reporting requirements and the
amount released to the environment, it may be necessary to
notify the regulatory authorities.
