Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or CO2. Do not use a direct stream of water. Product will float and can be
reignited on surface of water.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures and Precautions: Caution, combustible. When heated above flash point, releases vapors. When
mixed with air and exposed to ignition source, vapors can burn in open or explode if confined. Vapors may be heavier than air. May
travel long distances along the ground before igniting and flashing back to vapor source. Vapors may accumulate and travel to ignition
sources distant from the handling site; Flash Fire can result. Fine sprays/mist may be combustible at temperatures below normal flash
point. Keep liquid and vapor away from heat, sparks and flame. Container, even those that have been emptied, can contain explosive
vapors. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld or perform similar operations on or near containers. Static electricity may accumulate and create a
fire hazard. Do not enter confined fire space without full bunker gear (helmet with face shield, bunker coats, gloves and rubber boots),
including a positive pressure NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus. Containers exposed to intense heat from fires
should be cooled with water to prevent vapor pressure buildup which could result in container rupture. Contained areas exposed to
direct flame contact should be cooled with large quantities of water as needed to prevent weakening of container structure.
Section V - Reactivity Data
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
Incompatibility/Conditions and materials to avoid: Avoid heat, flame and contact with strong oxidizing agents.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Carbon monoxide and unidentified organic compounds may be formed during combustion.
Section VI - Health Hazard Data/Toxicity Data
The health effects noted below are consistent with requirements under the OSHA hazard communications standard (29 CFR 1910. 1200).
EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Eye Contact: Liquid is severe irritant to the eyes. No permanent damage. Skin Contact: Liquid is irritating
to the skin. Prolonged or repeated liquid contact can result in defatting and drying of the skin which may result in skin irritation and severe
dermatitis, e.g. blisters, cracking, edema, redness. Inhalation: Vapors may cause irritation to nose, throat, and respiratory tract. Ingestion:
Very low toxicity by ingestion. Signs and Symptoms: Irritation as noted above. Early to moderate CNS (Central Nervous System) depression
may be evidenced by giddiness, headache, dizziness and nausea; in extreme cases, unconsciousness and death may occur. Aggravated
Medical Conditions: Preexisting eye, skin, and respiratory disorders may be aggravated by exposure to this product.
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES: Eye Contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids
open. Get medical attention. Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing/shoes. Flush skin with water. Follow by washing with soap
and water. If irritation occurs, get medical attention. Do not reuse clothing until cleaned. Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air and
provide oxygen if breathing is difficult. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to
prevent aspiration of liquid into the lungs. Get medical attention.
Supplemental Health Information: Overexposure may cause blurring of vision.
Section VII: Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Stop dike flow, dike spill, absorb with inert
material (e.g. sand, earth).
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: The coating and any contaminated diking material should be thoroughly air dried and
collected into a container. The containers should then be sealed and properly labeled with waste designation and landfill
or incinerated according to current local, state and federal regulations.
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORING: Maximum storage temperature 100癋. Keep closure
tight and container upright to prevent leakage. Precautionary labeling: "Keep from Freezing". Department of Transpor-
tation (D.O.T.) Proper shipping name: Paint Product UN 1263.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: Do not get in eyes. Avoid skin contact. Prevent prolonged or repeated breathing of vapor
mists. Do not handle until the manufacturer's safety precautions and label instructions have been read and understood.
Avoid breathing sanding dust.
Section VIII: Control Measures
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of vapors. If exposure may or does exceed
occupational exposure limits (Section II) use a NIOSH-approved respirator to prevent overexposure. In accord with
29CFR 1910, 134 use either an atmosphere supplying respirator or an air-purifying respirator for organic vapors. Use
approved chemical/mechanical filters designed to remove particulates in open and restricted ventilation areas. Use
MSHA/NIOSH-approved airline type respirator or hood in confined areas. OSHA has established transitional occupa-
tional exposure limits for this product and/or components of this product. Refer to 29 CFR 1910.1000 for these transi-
tional limits and requirements for meeting these limits.
VENTILATION: Air-dry contaminated clothing in a well ventilated area then launder before reusing. Sufficient ventila-
tion, in pattern and volume, should be provided to keep the air contaminant concentration below applicable exposure
limits. All application areas should be ventilated in accordance with OSHA regulation 29CFR Part 1910.94.
PROTECTIVE GLOVES: Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Wear chemical resistant gloves and other
clothing as required to minimize contact. Test data from published literature and/or glove and clothing manufactures
indicate the best protection is provided by nitrile material.
EYE PROTECTION: Avoid contact with eyes. Use safety eyewear including side shields, face shields, or chemical
splash goggles (ANSIZ-87.1 or approved equivalent).
OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Use disposable or impervious clothing if work clothing contamination is likely. Use
protective cream if prolonged skin contact is likely.
HYGIENIC PRACTICES: Wash hands before eating, smoking, or using the washroom. Do not smoke in any chemical
handling or storage area. Food or beverages should not be consumed anywhere this product is being applied.
