Other Effects:
None known
This product contains ingredients that may contribute to the following potential chronic health effects:
Notice: Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain
and nervous system damage. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents may be harmful
or fatal.May cause liver damage. May cause kidney damage.
See Section 11 for toxicological information about Mutagens, Teratogens and Carcinogens.
If this section is blank, no information is available.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Inhalation:
If inhaled, remove from area to fresh air. Get medical attention if respiratory irritation develops or if breathing becomes
difficult.
Eye Contact:
Flush with plenty of low pressure water for 15 minutes, occasionally lifting eye lids. If irritation persists, consult a physician.
Skin Contact:
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists get
medical attention.
Ingestion:
If swallowed, give 2 glasses of water to drink. Never give fluids or induce vomiting if the victim is unconscious or having
convulsions. Get immediate medical attention.
Medical conditions aggravated by exposure: Any respiratory or skin condition.

Unusual fire and explosion hazards:
None known.
Extinguishing media:
Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam and/or water fog.
Fire fighting procedures:
Use water spray to cool nearby containers and structures exposed to fire. Firefighters should be equipped with selfcontained breathing apparatus and turn out gear.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Action to be taken if material is released or spilled:
Ventilate area. Avoid breathing of vapors. Use self-containing breathing apparatus or airmask for large spills in a confined
area. Wipe, scrape or soak up in an inert material and put in a container for disposal. See section 5, "Unusual Fire and
Explosion Hazards", for proper container and storage procedures. Avoid contact with eyes.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions to be taken in handling and storage:
Keep container closed when not in use.
8. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EXPOSURE CONTROLS
Personal Protective Equipment
Eye and face protection:
Avoid contact with eyes. Wear chemical goggles if there is the possibility of contact or splashing in the eye.
Skin protection:
Appropriate chemical resistant gloves should be worn.To prevent skin contact wear protective clothing covering all
exposed areas.
Respiratory protection:
If exposure cannot be controlled below applicable limits, use the appropriate NIOSH approved respirator such as an air
purifying respirator with organic vapor cartridge and dust/mist filter. Consult the respirator manufacturer's literature to
ensure that the respirator will provide adequate protection. Read and follow all respirator manufacturer's instructions.
Ventilation
Required when spraying or applying in confined area.
