       May cause mild skin irritation.  Prolonged or repeated contact may   
       dry the skin.  Symptoms may include redness, buring, drying and      
       cracking of skin, and skin burns.

       Swallowing small amounts of this material during normal handling     
       is not likely to cause harmful effects.  Swallowing large amounts    
       may be harmful.  This material can enter the lungs during            
       swallowing or vomiting and cause lung inflammation and/or damage.

       If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from           
       exposure and into fresh air.  Flush eyes gently with water for at    
       least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart; seek immediate         
       medical attention.

       Remove contaminated clothing.  Wash exposed area with soap and       
       water.  If symptoms persist, seek medical attention.  Launder        
       clothing before reuse.

       Do not induce vomiting.  This material is an aspiration hazard.      
       If individual is drowsy or unconscious, place on left side with      
       the head down.  Seek medical attention.  If possible, do not leave   
       individual unattended.

       If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from           
       exposure and into fresh air.  Seek immediate medical attention;      
       keep person warm and quiet.  If person is not breathing, begin       
       artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult, administer       
       oxygen.

  Fire and Explosion Hazards                                                
       Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along the ground or be    
       moved by ventilation and ignited by heat, pilot lights, other        
       flames and ignition sources at locations distant from material       
       handling point.  Never use welding or cutting torch on or near       
       drum (even empty) because product (even just residue) can ignite     
       explosively.

       Water or foam may cause frothing which can be violent and possibly   
       endanger the life of the firefighter.  Wear a self-contained         
       breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in the positive   
       pressure demand mode with appropriate turn-out gear and chemical     
       resistant personal protective equipment.  Refer to the personal

       Eliminate all ignition sources (flares, flames including pilot       
       lights, electrical sparks). Persons not wearing protective           
       equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has   
       been completed. Stop spill at source. Prevent from entering          
       drains, sewers, streams or other bodies of water.  Prevent from      
       spreading.  If runoff occurs, notify authorities as required.        
       Pump or vacuum transfer spilled product to clean containers for      
       recovery.  Absorb unrecoverable product. Transfer contaminated       
       absorbent, soil and other materials to containers for disposal.

       Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied.  Since    
       emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or    
       solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be       
       observed.

       Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are      
       advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other type safety     
       glasses.  Consult your safety representative.

       Wear resistant gloves such as:  neoprene, nitrile rubber, To         
       prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious          
       clothing and boots..

       exceeded (See Exposure Guidelines), a NIOSH/MSHA approved air        
       supplied respirator is advised in absence of proper environmental    
       control.  OSHA regulations also permit other NIOSH/MSHA              
       respirators (negative pressure type) under specified conditions      
       (consult your industrial hygienist).  Engineering or                 
       administrative controls should be implemented to reduce exposure.

       ventilation to maintain exposure below TLV(s).
