SECTION 7 – HANDLING AND STORAGE
7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Pressurized container: do not pierce or burn, even after use. Container may explode if heated. Avoid contact with skin and
eyes. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Do not swallow. Use only in a well-ventilated area or outdoors.
Avoid welding or other “hot work” in the vicinity of exposed cured foam. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. (See
section 8) General hygiene advice: Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Wash hands before eating, drinking or
smoking.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage including any incompatibilities
Store in a dry place. Ideal use temperature is 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). Do not expose aerosol cans to open flame or
store at temperatures above 122°F (50°C). Excessive heat can cause premature aging of components resulting in a
shorter shelf life. Storage below 55°F (12.7°C) may affect foam quality if chemicals are not warmed to room temperature
before using. Protect containers from physical abuse. Keep containers upright. KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.
SECTION 8 – EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
8.1 Control Parameters

P age |4
8.2 Exposure Controls:
Engineering measures: Use ventilation adequate to keep exposures below recommended exposure limits.
Eye/face Protection: Wear protective safety glasses with side shields or goggles.
Hand Protection: Use chemically resistant gloves (i.e. Nitrile gloves). Nitrile/butadiene rubber, butyl rubber, polyethylene,
PVC (vinyl), or neoprene gloves are also effective. Glove selection should take into account potential body reactions to
certain materials and manufacturer’s instructions for use. Break through time of selected gloves must be greater than the
intended use period.
Other Protective Equipment: Use clothing that protects against dermal exposure. Appropriate protective clothing varies
depending on the potential for exposure. To ensure proper skin protection, wear PPE in such a manner that no skin is
exposed.
Respiratory Protection: If atmospheric levels are expected to exceed the exposure levels, use a NIOSH approved air
purifying respirator equipped with an organic vapor cartridge and particulate filter. If atmospheric levels exceed 10 times
the TLV or PEL level for which an air purifying respirator is effective, use a powered air purifying respirator (PAPR). The
type of respiratory protection selected must comply with the requirements set forth in OSHA’s Respiratory Protection
Standard (29 CFR1910.134).
Hygiene Measures: An eye wash station or portable eye wash station should be in the area.Wash hands thoroughly after
use, before eating, drinking, or using the lavatory. Employees/Users should be educated and trained in the safe use and
handling of this product.
