HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (HMIS) Health Flammability Reactivity BASIS 1 1 0 Recommended by Exxon NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION (NFPA) - HAZARD IDENTIFICATION Health Flammability Reactivity BASIS 1 1 0 Recommended by Exxon VARIABILITY AMONG INDIVIDUALS Health studies have shown that many petroleum hydrocarbons and synthetic lubricants pose potential human health risks which may vary from person to person. As a precaution, exposure to liquids, vapors, mists or fumes should be minimized. EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE (Signs and symptoms of exposure) Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause skin irritation. PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS WHICH MAY BE AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE None recognized ________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES ________________________________________________________________________________ EYE CONTACT If splashed into the eyes, flush with clear water for 15 minutes or until irritation subsides. If irritation persists, call a physician. SKIN In case of skin contact, remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin with soap and water. Launder or dry-clean clothing before reuse. If product is injected into or under the skin, or into any part of the body, regardless of the appearance of the wound or its size, the individual should be evaluated immediately by a physician as a surgical emergency. Even though initial symptoms from high pressure injection may be minimal or absent, early surgical treatment within the first few hours may significantly reduce the ultimate extent of injury. INHALATION Vapor pressure is very low. Vapor inhalation under ambient conditions is normally not a problem. If overcome by vapor from hot product, immediately remove from exposure and call a physician. If breathing is irregular or has stopped, start resuscitation; administer oxygen, if available. If overexposed to oil mist, remove from further exposure until excessive oil mist condition subsides. INGESTION If ingested, DO NOT induce vomiting; call a physician immediately. ________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES ________________________________________________________________________________ FLASH POINT (MINIMUM) AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE 200~C (392~F) Greater than 260~C (500~F) ASTM D 92, Cleveland Open Cup FLAMMABLE OR EXPLOSIVE LIMITS (APPROXIMATE PERCENT BY VOLUME IN AIR) Estimated values: Lower Flammable Limit 0.9% Upper Flammable Limit 7% EXTINGUISHING MEDIA AND FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES Foam, water spray (fog), dry chemical, carbon dioxide and vaporizing liquid type extinguishing agents may all be suitable for extinguishing fires involving this type of product, depending on size or potential size of fire and circumstances related to the situation.

"EMPTY" CONTAINER WARNING "Empty" containers retain residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT, WELD, BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION; THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. Do not attempt to refill or clean containers since residue is difficult to remove. "Empty" drums should be completely drained, properly bunged and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner. All other containers should be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner and in accordance with governmental regulations. For work on tanks refer to Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations, ANSI Z49.1, and other governmental and industrial references pertaining to cleaning, repairing, welding, or other contemplated operations. ________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION ________________________________________________________________________________ EXPOSURE LIMIT FOR TOTAL PRODUCT BASIS 5 mg/m3 for oil mist (aerosol) for OSHA Regulation 29 CFR 1910.1000 and an 8-hour workday recommended by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). ACGIH states that the air is to be sampled by a method that does not collect vapor; in addition, it lists a 10 mg/m3 STEL. VENTILATION Use local exhaust to capture vapor, mists or fumes, if necessary. Provide ventilation sufficient to prevent exceeding recommended exposure limit or buildup of explosive concentrations of vapor in air. No smoking, or use of flame or other ignition sources. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION Use supplied-air respiratory protection in confined or enclosed spaces, if needed. PROTECTIVE GLOVES Use chemical-resistant gloves, if needed, to avoid prolonged or repeated skin contact. EYE PROTECTION Use splash goggles or face shield when eye contact may occur. OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT Use chemical-resistant apron or other impervious clothing, if needed, to avoid contaminating regular clothing, which could result in prolonged or repeated skin contact. WORK PRACTICES / ENGINEERING CONTROLS To prevent fire or explosion risk from static accumulation and discharge, effectively bond and/or ground product transfer system in accordance with (THE) National Fire Protection Association PUBLICATIONS. Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not store near heat, sparks, flame or strong oxidants. In order to prevent fire or explosion hazards, use appropriate equipment. Information on electrical equipment appropriate for use with this product may be found in the latest edition of the National Electrical Code (NFPA-70). This document is available from the National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, Massachusetts 02269. PERSONAL HYGIENE Minimize breathing vapor, mist or fumes. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Remove contaminated clothing; launder or dry-clean before re-use. Remove contaminated shoes and thoroughly clean before re-use; discard if oil-soaked.

Hazardous polymerization will not occur. Avoid contact with strong oxidants such as liquid chlorine, concentrated oxygen, sodium hypochlorite, calcium hypochlorite, etc., as this presents a serious explosion hazard. ________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 11: TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION ________________________________________________________________________________ NATURE OF HAZARD AND TOXICITY INFORMATION Repeated and prolonged overexposure to oil mists may result in droplet deposition, oil granuloma formation, inflammation and increased incidence of infection. In accordance with the current OSHA Hazard Communication Standard criteria, this product does not require a cancer hazard warning. This is because the product is formulated from base stocks which are severely hydrotreated, severely solvent extracted, and/or processed by mild hydrotreatment and extraction. Alternatively, it may consist of components not otherwise affected by IARC criteria, such as atmospheric distillates or synthetically derived materials, and as such is not characterized by current IARC classification criteria. Prolonged or repeated skin contact with this product tends to remove skin oils, possibly leading to irritation and dermatitis; however, based on human experience and available toxicological data, this product is judged to be neither a "corrosive" nor an "irritant" by OSHA criteria. Continuous contact with used motor oil has caused skin cancer in animal tests. Product contacting the eyes may cause eye irritation. Product has a low order of acute oral and dermal toxicity, but minute amounts aspirated into the lungs during ingestion or vomiting may cause mild to severe pulmonary injury and possibly death. This product is judged to have an acute oral LD50 (rat) greater than 5 g/kg of body weight, and an acute dermal LD50 (rabbit) greater than 3.16 g/kg of body weight. ________________________________________________________________________________ SECTION 12: ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION ________________________________________________________________________________ Do not discharge this product into public waters or waterways unless authorized by a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
