3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: This is a clear, colorless liquid with a pleasant, lemon-like odor. The main health hazard
associated with exposure to this product is the potential for moderate irritation of skin and other contaminated tissue.
Contact with the eyes may result in tearing and moderate to severe irritation due to the presence of Dipropylene Glycol
Methyl Ether. Inhalation exposure may result in moderate irritation to the respiratory system. This solution is not flammable
or reactive. If involved in a fire, products of thermal decomposition from this product may include oxides of carbon.
Emergency responders must wear the personal protective equipment suitable for the situation to which they are
responding.
SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE BY ROUTE OF EXPOSURE:
The most significant routes of occupational
overexposure are inhalation and contact with skin and eyes. The symptoms of overexposure to this product are as follows:
INHALATION: Inhalation of vapors, mists, or sprays of this product may be moderately irritating to the respiratory system.
Depending on the concentration and duration of contact, symptoms of inhalation overexposure can include coughing, sore
throat, nasal congestion, and breathing difficulty.

3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION (Continued)
CONTACT WITH SKIN or EYES: This product may be mildly irritating to
contaminated skin when contact is short-lived. Prolonged skin contact may
be moderately irritating and may result in dermatitis (dry, red, itchy skin).
Contact with the eyes may cause moderate to irritation and symptoms of
pain, redness, and watering. Prolonged eye contact may result in
lacrymation and excessive tearing.
SKIN ABSORPTION: Although the Dipropylene Glycol Methyl Ether
component of this product can be absorbed via intact skin, due to the low
level of this compound in the product, no toxic effect is expected. If skin
contact is prolonged, symptoms such as described under inhalation may
occur.
INGESTION: Ingestion is not anticipated to be a significant route of
exposure for any component of this product. If this product is swallowed,
symptoms of such exposure may include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
INJECTION: Injection of this product (as may occur if skin is punctured by
a contaminated object) can result in pain, redness, and local swelling.

What should I do if a hazardous situation occurs?
4. FIRST-AID MEASURES
Contaminated individuals must be taken for medical attention. Rescuers should be taken for medical attention, if necessary.
Take a copy of label and MSDS to health professional with the contaminated individual.
SKIN EXPOSURE: If this product contaminates the skin, immediately begin decontamination with running water. Minimum
flushing is for 15 minutes. Remove exposed or contaminated clothing, taking care not to contaminate eyes. The
contaminated individual must seek immediate medical attention if any adverse health effect occurs.
EYE EXPOSURE: If this product's liquid or vapors enter the eyes, open the contaminated individual's eyes while under
gently running water. Use sufficient force to open eyelids. Have the contaminated individual "roll" eyes. Minimum flushing is
for 15 minutes. The contaminated individual must seek immediate medical attention.
INHALATION: If vapors, mists, or sprays of this product are inhaled, remove the contaminated individual to fresh air. If
necessary, use artificial respiration to support vital functions. Remove or cover gross contamination to avoid exposure to
rescuers.
INGESTION: If this product is swallowed, CALL PHYSICIAN OR POISON CONTROL CENTER FOR MOST CURRENT
INFORMATION. If professional advice is not available, do not induce vomiting. Have victim rinse mouth with water or drink
several cupfuls of water, if conscious. Never induce vomiting or give a diluent (e.g., water) to someone who is unconscious,
having convulsions, or unable to swallow. If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down
position, if possible) to maintain an open airway and prevent aspiration.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Preexisting respiratory problems, dermatitis, and other skin
disorders can be aggravated by exposure to this product.

SPECIAL FIRE-FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Incipient fire responders should wear eye protection. Structural firefighters
must wear Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus and full protective equipment. If possible, prevent runoff water from entering
storm drains, bodies of water, or other environmentally sensitive areas. If necessary, clean contaminated fire response
equipment with an acid neutralizing agent (e.g., sodium bicarbonate) and rinse thoroughly with water before returning such
equipment to service.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
RELEASE RESPONSE: In case of a release, clear the affected area and protect people. Uncontrolled releases should be
responded to by appropriately trained personnel in proper personal protective equipment, using pre-planned procedures.
The proper personal protective equipment for incidental releases (e.g., 32-ounce container) should be rubber gloves and
goggles. In the event that a clean up will generate excessive splashes, a face-shield, boots, and chemically-resistant body
protection should also be worn. In the event of a non-incidental release (e.g., several 1-gallon containers released in a
poorly ventilated area), minimum Personal Protective Equipment should be Level B: triple-gloves (rubber gloves and nitrile
gloves over latex gloves), chemical resistant suit and boots, hard-hat, and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus. Absorb
spilled liquid with polypads or other suitable absorbent materials. Triple-rinse with water. Decontaminate the area
thoroughly. Place all spill residue in an appropriate container and seal. Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State, and
local hazardous waste disposal regulations (see Section 13, Disposal Considerations).

DEFINITIONS OF TERMS
A large number of abbreviations and acronyms appear on a MSDS. Some of these which are commonly used include the following:
CAS #: This is the Chemical Abstract Service Number which uniquely identifies each constituent.
EXPOSURE LIMITS IN AIR:
ACGIH - American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, a
professional association which establishes exposure limits.
TLV Threshold Limit Value - an airborne concentration of a substance which
represents conditions under which it is generally believed that nearly all
workers may be repeatedly exposed without adverse effect. The duration
must be considered, including the 8-hour Time Weighted Average (TWA),
the 15-minute Short Term Exposure Limit, and the instantaneous Ceiling
Level (C). Skin absorption effects must also be considered.
OSHA - U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
PEL - Permissible Exposure Limit - This exposure value means exactly the
same as a TLV, except that it is enforceable by OSHA.
The OSHA
Permissible Exposure Limits are based in the 1989 PELs and the June,
1993 Air Contaminants Rule (Federal Register: 58: 35338-35351 and 58:
40191). Both the current PELs and the vacated PELs are indicated. The
phrase, “Vacated 1989 PEL,” is placed next to the PEL which was vacated
by Court Order. IDLH - Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health - This
level represents a concentration from which one can escape within 30minutes without suffering escape-preventing or permanent injury. The DFG
- MAK is the Republic of Germany’s Maximum Exposure Level, similar to
the U.S. PEL. NIOSH is the National Institute of Occupational Safety and
Health, which is the research arm of the U.S. Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA). NIOSH issues exposure guidelines called
Recommended Exposure Levels (RELs). When no exposure guidelines
are established, an entry of NE is made for reference.
HAZARD RATINGS:
HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM: Health Hazard:
0 (minimal acute or chronic exposure hazard); 1 (slight acute or chronic
exposure hazard); 2 (moderate acute or significant chronic exposure
hazard); 3 (severe acute exposure hazard; onetime overexposure can
result in permanent injury and may be fatal); 4 (extreme acute exposure
hazard; onetime overexposure can be fatal). Flammability Hazard: 0
(minimal hazard); 1 (materials that require substantial pre-heating before
burning); 2 (combustible liquid or solids; liquids with a flash point of 38-93°C
[100-200°F]); 3 (Class IB and IC flammable liquids with flash points below
38°C [100°F]); 4 (Class IA flammable liquids with flash points below 23°C
[73°F] and boiling points below 38°C [100°F]. Reactivity Hazard: 0
(normally stable); 1 (material that can become unstable at elevated
temperatures or which can react slightly with water); 2 (materials that are
unstable but do not detonate or which can react violently with water); 3
(materials that can detonate when initiated or which can react explosively
with water); 4 (materials that can detonate at normal temperatures or
pressures).
NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION: Health Hazard: 0
(material that on exposure under fire conditions would offer no hazard
beyond that of ordinary combustible materials); 1 (materials that on
exposure under fire conditions could cause irritation or minor residual
injury); 2 (materials that on intense or continued exposure under fire
conditions could cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury);
3 (materials that can on short exposure could cause serious temporary or
residual injury); 4 (materials that under very short exposure causes death
or major residual injury). Flammability Hazard and Reactivity Hazard: Refer
to definitions for “Hazardous Materials Identification System”.
FLAMMABILITY LIMITS IN AIR:
Much of the information related to fire and explosion is derived from the
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Flash Point - Minimum
temperature at which a liquid gives off sufficient vapors to form an ignitable
mixture with air. Autoignition Temperature: The minimum temperature
required to initiate combustion in air with no other source of ignition. LEL the lowest percent of vapor in air, by volume, that will explode or ignite in
the presence of an ignition source. UEL - the highest percent of vapor in air,
by volume, that will explode or ignite in the presence of an ignition source.
TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION:
Possible health hazards as derived from human data, animal studies, or
from the results of studies with similar compounds are presented.
Definitions of some terms used in this section are: LD50 - Lethal Dose
(solids & liquids) which kills 50% of the exposed animals; LC50 - Lethal
Concentration (gases) which kills 50% of the exposed animals; ppm
concentration expressed in parts of material per million parts of air or water;
3
mg/m concentration expressed in weight of substance per volume of air;
mg/kg quantity of material, by weight, administered to a test subject, based
on their body weight in kg. Data from several sources are used to evaluate
the cancer-causing potential of the material. The sources are: IARC - the
International Agency for Research on Cancer; NTP - the National
Toxicology Program, RTECS - the Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical
Substances, OSHA and CAL/OSHA. IARC and NTP rate chemicals on a
scale of decreasing potential to cause human cancer with rankings from 1
to 4. Subrankings (2A, 2B, etc.) are also used. Other measures of toxicity
include TDLo, the lowest dose to cause a symptom and TCLo the lowest
concentration to cause a symptom; TDo, LDLo, and LDo, or TC, TCo,
LCLo, and LCo, the lowest dose (or concentration) to cause lethal or toxic
effects. BEI - Biological Exposure Indices, represent the levels of
determinants which are most likely to be observed in specimens collected
from a healthy worker who has been exposed to chemicals to the same
extent as a worker with inhalation exposure to the TLV. Ecological
Information: EC is the effect concentration in water.
REGULATORY INFORMATION:
This section explains the impact of various laws and regulations on the
material. EPA is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. WHMIS is the
Canadian Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System. DOT and
TC are the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Transport Canada,
respectively. Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA);
the Canadian Domestic/Non-Domestic Substances List (DSL/NDSL); the
U.S. Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA); Marine Pollutant status
according to the DOT; the Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund); and various
