Section 3: Hazard Identification

Emergency overview:
Combustible, corrosive
Harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed.  Causes burns. May
cause sensitization by skin contact.  Lachrymator.  Target organ(s): Central nervous

Potential Health Effects:

	Causes burns; lachrymator

	Causes burns; harmful if absorbed through skin 

	Material is extremely destructive to mucous membrane tissue and to
	the upper respiratory tract.  Harmful if inhaled.

    	Harmful if swallowed.

Section 4: First Aid Measures
Inhalation - First Aid
    If inhaled, remove victim to fresh air. If not breathing, give 
    artificial respiration.  If breathing becomes difficult, give oxygen
    and get medical attention. 

Skin Contact - First Aid
    Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes.  Flush skin with
    plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes.  Get medical attention 

Eye Contact - First Aid
    Immediately flush eyes with large quantities of running water for 
    a minimum of 15 minutes. If the victim is wearing contact lenses, 
    remove them. Hold the eyelids apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing 
    of the entire surface of the eye and lids with water. Contact a physician
