Extinguishing Media:                                         Foam, Water, CO2, Dry Chemical

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

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.

SKIN CONTACT:  Wash affected area with soap and water to avoid transfer to more sensitive areas.  Only minor sensation with skin contact in most areas.

INHALATION:  Minor respiratory stimulation.  Wintergreen Fragrance to simulate live units cause sneezing.

INGESTION:  Severe burning heartburn sensation cause nausea.

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS AND HEALTH INFORMATION

EYE EFFECTS:       This product is a minor eye irritant, Tearing and redness occur.

This product has been thoroughly tested by FDA approved Labs and has been found to have minor non persistent eye irritation, to be non toxic, and not to cause dermatitis.

SECTION VI: REACTIVITY DATA

SECTION VII: SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:  Ventilate area.  Remove all possible sources of ignition.  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:  Store in a cool dry area away from sources of ignition.  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.
