SECTION II HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS
INGREDIENT PERCENT EXPOSURE LIMITS VAPOR PRESSURE
PROPRIETARY BLEND CARRIER 100 PPM* 14.0
2003 SPECIAL FORMULA 2K3
TRADE SECRET: As defined in Hazard Communication
Act 29 CFR 1910.1200 Para 1 (i) end Appendix D to
PROPELLANT DYMEL 134A 1000 PPM 60 PSIG @ 70oF
ORTHOCHLOROBENZALMALONONITRILE .4MgM3 N/A
OLEORESIN CAPSICUM 2 MILLION SHU Not Established Not Known
Acute - Severe but short term.
Chronic - Lasting along time or recurring.
Irritant - A Chemical which is not corrosive but which causes a reversible inflammatory effect on living tissue by chemical reaction.
PEL - Permissible exposure level - the exposure limit which shall not be exceeded as an eight hour time weighted average.
FREEZE + P 2K3 is a strong irritant effecting skin, eyes nose and breathing. It is a non-persistent acute (short term) exposure which can be relieved with running water and soap for cleanup of the oleoresin capsicum. One of the solvents used is a suspected carcinogen in laboratory testing with chronic exposure. No health risk has been found from acute exposure.

SECTION IV: FIRE AND SAFETY EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA
Flammability Classification OSHA: Non Flammable
Shipping Classification D.O.T.: ORM-D
Flash Point: Not determined all ingredients are non-flammable
Flammable Levels in Air: Lower: N/A Upper: N/A
Extinguishing Media: Foam, Water Fog, CO2
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Do not expose to heat or flame or store above 120o F as high internal pressures cause leaking.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Full protective equipment including self contained breathing apparatus should be used, Fog nozzles should be used to cool closed containers to prevent pressure buildup. Move undamaged containers from fire area if accomplished without risk.
SECTION V: HEALTH HAZARD DATA
PRIMARY ROUTE(S) OF ENTRY: Dermal, Inhalation, Eyes
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURE
EYES: Flush eyes with large quantities of water to speed recovery. Face subject into wind or forced air source such as fans or air conditioning outlet. Wash face with mild soap
SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash affected area with soap and water to avoid transfer to more sensitive areas. Burning sensation with skin contact in most areas. Use no creams or salves. Persons with preexisting skin disorders be more susceptible to the effects of this agent.
INHALATION: Irritant, stimulation of facial nerves causes feeling of restricted airway. No danger exists for asphyxiation. Remove persons to fresh air.
INGESTION: Severe burning heartburn sensation cause nausea. Seek medical attention if nausea persists.
PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS AND HEALTH INFORMATION
EYE EFFECTS: This product is an eye irritant, Tearing and redness of the eyes will occur. Flush with water lifting upper and lower lids occasionally.
This product has been thoroughly tested by FDA approved Labs and has been found to have minor non persistent eye irritation, not to cause dermatitis, and is not toxic in this form.
SECTION VI: REACTIVITY DATA
HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Will Not Occur
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Heat, open flames.
INCOMPATIBILITY (MATERIALS TO AVOID): Strong Acids, Alkalies and Oxidizers.
SECTION VII: SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Ventilate area. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors. Confine spill with inert absorbent. Wear protective equipment during clean up.
WASTE DISPOSAL: Incinerate in an approved incinerator or dispose of in accordance with Local, State and Federal Regulations.
SECTION VIII: SAFE HANDLING AND USE INFORMATION
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use NIOSH/MSHA approved Chemical/Mechanical type filter system to remove a combination or particles, gas & vapor. Use air line if necessary.
VENTILATION: Use adequate ventilation in volume and pattern to keep LEL and TLV's in Section II below recommended level to produce explosion or fire. General mechanical ventilation should comply with OSHA 1910.94.
PROTECTIVE GLOVES: Use rubber gloves.
EYE PROTECTION: Safety glasses or goggles with splash guards or side shields.
OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Prevent prolonged skin contact to contaminated clothing.
SECTION IX: SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORING: When storing large quantities, store in building designed and protected against fire.
DO NOT STORE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT OR ABOVE 120O F.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: "FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY" Do not take internally. If ingested, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Consult a physician.
