SECTION III - HEALTH HAZARD DATA
SPECIAL NOTE: MSDS data pertains to the product as dispensed from the container. Adverse health effects would not be expected under
recommended conditions of use (diluted) so long as prescribed safety precautions are practiced.
ACUTE EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE:
The solvents in this product, when inhaled or absorbed through the skin in harmful quantities, may produce central nervous system
depression characterized by headache, nausea, dizziness and stupor. Vapors or spray mists may be irritating to nasal and respiratory tract.
Product may be irritating to skin and eyes resulting in redness, itching or burning. Introduction of solvents, as in aspiration of vomitus fluid,
may produce chemical pneumonia. Existing respiratory disorders and skin diseases may be aggravated by exposure.
CHRONIC EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE:
There are no known effects from chronic exposure to this product. None of the ingredients are listed as carcinogens by IARC, NTP, or
EST'D PEL/TLV: Not established

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIALS IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:
Observe safety precautions in sections 4 & 9 during spill clean-up. Large spills are unlikely due to packaging. Spill may be absorbed on an
inert absorbent material, and placed in a suitable container for disposal. Wash area thoroughly with a detergent solution and rinse well with
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD:
Product is consumed in use. Do not crush, puncture or incinerate spent containers. Large numbers of aerosol containers may require
handling as a hazardous waste, but in most states total hazardous waste quantities less than 220 lbs per month may allow disposal in a
chemical or industrial waste landfill. Consult local, state and federal agencies for the proper disposal method in your area.

SECTION IX - SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN WHEN HANDLING AND STORING
Do not store at temperatures above 120F (39C) or in direct sunlight. Do not puncture or incinerate container. Keep product away from skin
and eyes. Do not breathe spray mists or vapors. Vapors are heavier than air and will accumulate at low points. Ventilation should include floor
level exhausting. Clothing or shoes which become contaminated with substance should be removed promptly and not reworn until thoroughly
cleaned. Keep out of the reach of children.
