=============================================================== SECTION 4. FIRE
AND EXPLOSION HAZARD
Flammability Classification: Flammable Liquid. Product can be shipped ORM-D Consumer Commodity.
Flash Point: 81 F
Extinguishing Media: Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, Foam
Special Firefighting Procedures: Full protective equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus should be
used. Water may be ineffective. If water is used, fog nozzles are preferable. Water may be used
to cool closed containers to prevent pressure build-up and possible auto ignition or explosion when exposed
to extreme heat.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Keep containers tightly closed. Isolate from heat, electrical equipment,
sparks and open flame. Do not spray near open flame. Closed containers may explode when exposed to extreme
heat. Application to hot surfaces requires special precautions. During Emergency conditions overexposure to
decomposition products may cause a health hazard. Symptoms may not be immediately apparent. Obtain
medical attention.
================================================================SECTION 5.
HEALTH HAZARD DATA.
Routes of exposure: Exposure may be inhalation and/or skin or eye contact, depending on conditions of use.
Follow recommendations for proper use, ventilation, and personal protective equipment to minimize
Exposure.
Acute Health Hazards:
Effects of Overexposure: Irritation of eyes, skin, and respiratory system. May cause nervous system
depression. Extreme overexposure may result in unconsciousness and possibly death.
Signs and Symptoms of Overexposure: Headache, dizziness, nausea, and loss of coordination are Indications
of excessive exposure to vapors and spray mists. Redness and itching or burning sensation may indicate eye or
excessive skin exposure.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Eyes: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Get medical
attention.
Skin: Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and wash with plenty of soap and water. Get medical attention
if symptoms persist.
Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Keep warm and
quiet. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Give patient milk or water to dilute. Immediately consult physician.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: None generally recognized.
Chronic Health Hazards: Prolonged overexposure to solvent ingredients in section II may cause adverse effects
to the liver, urinary, blood forming, cardiovascular, and reproductive systems. Reports have associated repeated
and prolonged overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage.
============================================================== SECTION 6.
REACTIVITY DATA.
Stability: Stable.
Conditions to avoid: Keep containers closed at all times.
Incompatibility: Contamination with water, acids, or alkalis can cause evolution of hydrogen, which may result in
dangerously increased pressures in closed containers.
Hazards Decomposition Products: Carbon monoxide and/or carbon dioxide.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
============================================================= SECTION 7. SPILL
OR LEAK PROCEDURES.
Steps to be taken in case material is released or spilled. Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate and remove
with inert absorbent.
Waste Disposal Method
Waste from this product may be hazardous as defined under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
(RCRA), 42 U.S.C. section 6901 et seq., and regulations there under, 40 C.F.R. Part 261. Dispose of in

maintained below applicable exposure limits. Refer to OSHA standards 1910.94, 1910.107, and 1910.108.
Respiratory Protection.
If personal exposure cannot be controlled ventilation, wear properly fitted organic vapor/particulate
respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for protection from materials in section II.
Protective Gloves.
Wear gloves, which are recommended by glove supplier for protection against materials in Section II. Eye
Protection.
Wear safety spectacles with imperforated side shields.
==============================================================SECTION 9.
PRECAUTIONS.
Precautions to be taken in Handling and Storing. Keep
away from heat, sparks, and open flame.
During use and until all vapors are gone: keep area ventilated -- DO NOT SMOKE -- extinguish all flames,
pilot lights and heaters -- turn off stoves, electric tools and appliances, and any other source of ignition. Consult
NFPA code. Use approved bonding and grounding procedures.
Keep container closed when not in use. Transfer only to approved containers with complete and
appropriate labeling. Do not take internally. Keep out of the reach of children.
