Section 3: Hazard Identification

Emergency Overview:
Silver/gray paste with mild odor.  This product is nonflammable.
Liquid will irritate eyes and skin.  Breathing high concentrations
may cause respiratory irritation and allergic respiratory reaction.

Potential Health Effects:

Liquid and vapors of this product may cause chemical burns in the eye.
Damage is irreversible.

Contact may cause chemical burns on the skin.  Sensitizer - may cause
allergic skin reaction.

Harmful if swallowed.  May cause chemical burn in gastrointestinal
tract and may be potentially toxic.  Silver ingestion may result
in generalized argyria. 
Harmful if inhaled.  High concentrations in immediate area can cause
respiratory irritation if inhaled.  Sensitizer - may cause allergic
respiratory reaction.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:
Heart, lung, eye, skin

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Eyes:  Immediately flush with large amounts of water.  After initial
       flushing, remove any contact lenses and continue flushing for
       at least  15 minutes.  Have eyes examined by a Physician.

Skin:  Remove contaminated clothing and wash skin with soap and water.
       Get medical attention if irritation develops persists.  Wash
       clothes separately before reuse.

Ingestion:  If appreciable quantities are swallowed,
            seek medical attention.  Neutralize with milk or dilute
            with water.

Inhalation:  In case of exposure to high concentrations of vapor
             or mist, remove to fresh air.  If breathing is difficult,
             give oxygen and call a Physician.  If breathing has stopped,
             apply artificial respiration and call a Physician.

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

Flash Point:  > 200F (Setaflash) 

LEL/UEL:  0.9/NA (% by volume in air)

Extinguishing Media:
Use carbon dioxide or dry chemicals for small fires, aqueous foam
or water for large fires involving this material. 

Fire Fighting Instructions:    
Remove all ignition sources.  Closed containers may rupture due to
build-up of pressure when exposed to extreme heat.  As in any fire,
wear self-contained breathing apparatus (pressure demand, OSHA/NIOSH
approved or equivalent) and full protective gear.  

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

Large Spills:
Remove all sources of ignition (sparks, open flames, etc.).  Wears
self-contained breathing apparatus and appropriate personal protective
equipment.  Ventilate area and contain spill by diking and/or absorbing
with inert material.  Collect spill by scooping up liquids and absorbent
material and place in a chemical waste container for proper disposal.
Do not flush to sewer.  Prevent material from entering storm sewers,
ditches that lead to waterways and ground.  Considering the small
quantity packaging sold by SPI Supplies, this kind of spill is
highly unlikely.

Small Spills:  
Absorb spill with absorbent material, then  place in a chemical waste
container for proper disposal.

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Overheating may cause container to rupture.  Use explosion proof
electrical equipment.  Containers must be kept closed and ventilation
provided to prevent vapor concentration build-up.  Store in a cool dry
place.  Do not breath vapor or get liquid in eyes, or on skin and
clothing.  Keep away from heat or sources of ignition.  Check all
containers for leaks.  Wear protective clothing as in section above.
Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors or contact with skin.  Ensure that
all equipment is grounded to prevent static discharge.  Containers of
this material may be hazardous when emptied due to solid or vapor residue.
All hazard precautions given in this data sheet must be observed for
empty containers.  Do not reuse this container.

Keep out of reach of children!

Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

Exposure Guidelines:
