Extremely Flammable (reference – Consumer Product Commission, flame
projection test aerosol products, per 16CFR 1500.45
FLASH POINT
Less than –117 deg F
FLAMMABLE LIMITS:
LEL % 1.8
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
If feasible stop flow of gas. Use water to cool fired exposed cartridge,
and surroundings and to protect personnel working on shut-off. Water
spray, dry power or carbon dioxide can be directed at flame area if gas
flow cannot be stopped to reduce fire intensity. DO NOT
COMPLETELY EXTINGUISH FLAME UNLESS GAS FLOW HAS
BEEN SHUT OFF.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Avoid possible accumulation of vapors at floor level, as vapor is heavier
than air. Self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing
should be worn in fighting fires involving chemicals. This product is
extremely flammable at all times. Keep away from any sources of
inadvertent ignition, including heat, sparks, or flame.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZZARDS: Avoid possible bursting of cartridge. Don not store where
temperature may exceed 120 deg. F. Don not puncture or incinerate.
5. PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
STEPS TO TAKE IN CASE OF SPILL: Protect from ignition source, keep away from heat, fire, sparks, or flame.
Ventilate area well. Avoid accumulation of vapor at low levels.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: Dispose of at appropriate waste facility in accordance with regulations.
PRECAUTIONS IN STORAGE: Do not store where temperature may exceed 120 deg. F. Store away from fire, sparks,
or flame. Store in suitable area for hazardous materials storage.

7. SPRECIAL PROTECTION CONTROL MEASURES
RESPIRATION PROTECTION:
If TLV is exceeded wear NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing
device or respirator.
PROTECTIE GLOVES:
None needed for normal use. Solvent resistant rubber type recommended
for prolonged exposure.
VENTILATION TYPE:
Must be adequate to maintain vapors at less than 800 ppm, particularly at
floor level as vapors are heavier than air.
EYE PROTECTION:
Safety glasses or goggles recommended.
SPECIAL PRCAUTIONS:
Do not use near heat, flame or sparks,. Avoid excessive breathing of
vapor. Do not spray in direction of body. Use only in accordance with
directions.
The information contained herein is based on data considered accurate. However, no warranty, expressed or
implied, is given regarding the accuracy of these data or the results to be obtained from the use thereof.
