A MILD SOAP MAY BE USED IF AVAILABLE. [INHALE] REMOVE FROM AREA TO FRESH AIR. IN ANY CASE IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST CONTACT POISON CONTROL CENTER, EMERGENCY ROOM, OR PHYSICIAN


SECTION VII - Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Steps if Material Released/Spilled       PROVIDE MAXIMUM VENTILATION. ONLY PERSONNEL EQUIPPED W/ PROPER RESPIRATORY, SKIN, & EYE PROTECTION SHOULD BE PERMITTED IN THE AREA. REMOVE ALL SOURCES OF IGNITION. TAKE UP SPILLED MATERIAL WITH SAND, VERMICULITE, OR OTHER NONCOMBUSTIBLE ABSORBENT MATERIAL & PLACE IN CLEAN, EMPTY CONTAINERS FOR DISPOSAL. ONLY THE SPILLED MATERIAL & THE ABSORBANT SHOULD BE PLACED IN THIS CONTAINER
Waste Disposal Method                    WASTE MATERIAL MUST BE DISPOSED OF IN ACCORDANCE WITH FED, STATE & LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL REGULATIONS. EMPTY CONTAINERS SHOULD BE RECYCLED OR DISPOSED OF THROUGH AN APPROVED WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY 
Handling and Storage Precautions         DO NOT STORE ABOVE 120 DEGREES F. STORE LARGE QUANTITIES IN BUILDINGS DESIGNED & PROTECTED FOR STORAGE OF NFPA CLASS IC FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS
Other Precautions                        VAPORS MAY COLLECT IN LOW AREAS. IF THIS MATERIAL IS PART OF A MULTIPLE COMPONENT SYSTEM, READ THE MSDS FOR THE OTHER COMPONENT(S) BEFORE BLENDING AS THE RESULTING MIXTURE MAY HAVE THE HAZARDS OF ALL OF ITS PARTS. CONTAINERS SHOULD BE GROUNDED WHEN POURING. AVOID FREE FALL OF LIQUIDS IN EXCESS OF A FEW INCHES


SECTION VIII - Control Measures
Respiratory Protection                   MAY BE PREVENTED BY ENSURING PROPER VENTILATION CONTROLS, VAPOR EXHAUST OR FRESH AIR ENTRY. A NIOSH APPROVED AIR PURIFYING RESPIRATOR WITH THE APPROPRIATE CHEMICAL CARTRIDGES OR A POSITIVE PRESSURE, AIR SUPPLIED RESPIRATOR MAY ALSO REDUCE EXPOSURE 
Ventilation                              PROVIDE GENERAL DILUTION OR LOCAL EXHAUST VENTILATION IN VOLUME & PATTERN TO KEEP THE CONCENTRATION OF INGREDIENTS
Protective Gloves                        NEOPRENE RUBBER GLOVES
Eye Protection                           WEAR CHEMICAL-TYPE SPLASH GOGGLES OR FULL FACE SHIELD WHEN POSSIBILITY EXISTS FOR EYE CONTACT
Other Protective Equipment               WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING TO PREVENT SKIN CONTACT. APRON SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTED OF NEOPRENE RUBBER
