Section 2 Composition


Product formulation is proprietary.  No ingredients are known to be hazardous
under normal use.  This product is not a hazardous chemical(s) under the criteria
of the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200).



Section 3: Hazard Identification


EFFECTS OF SINGLE OVEREXPOSURE:

SWALLOWING:
Small amounts transferred to the mouth by fingers during use, etc., should
not injure.  Swallowing large amounts may cause digestive discomfort.

SKIN ABSORPTION:
No evidence of adverse effects from available information.

INHALATION:
Short-term harmful health effects are not expected from vapor generated at
ambient temperature.

SKIN CONTACT:
A single relatively short exposure causes no known adverse effects.
Several repeated prolonged exposures (24 to 48 hours) may irritate.

EYE CONTACT:
Direct contact may cause temporary discomfort with mild redness, dryness,
and irritation.

EFFECTS OF REPEATED OVEREXPOSURE:
No evidence of adverse effects from available information.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY OVEREXPOSURE:
A knowledge of the available toxicology information and of the physical and
chemical properties of the material suggests that overexposure is unlikely
to aggravate existing medical conditions.

SIGNIFICANT LABORATORY DATA WITH POSSIBLE RELEVANCE TO HUMAN HEALTH
HAZARD EVALUATION:
None currently known.  Refer also to section 11.

OTHER EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE:
None currently known.



Section 4: First Aid Measures


EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID MEASURES:

SWALLOWING:
No emergency care anticipated.

SKIN:
Wash with soap and water.

INHALATION:
No emergency care anticipated.

EYES:
Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes.  Obtain medical
attention if discomfort persists.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN:
There is no specific antidote.  Treatment of overexposure should be directed
at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

NOTE:
Do not induce vomiting.  Emesis of this material may prove difficult due to
its high viscosity.  Aspiration may cause lung damage.




Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

      

FLASH POINT (test method(s)): >440°F (226°C) by Cleveland Open Cup

FLAMMABLE LIMITS IN AIR (by volume):
                                   LOWER: N/A
                                   UPPER: N/A

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:
Water spray, foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide (CO2) or other agents
suitable for Class B fires.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES:
Do not spray a solid stream of water or foam directly into a pool of hot,
burning liquid as this may cause frothing, and may intensify the fire.  Use
self-contained breathing apparatus when fighting fire in an enclosed area.

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS:
This product contains components which can generate sulfur dioxide, or small
amounts of other toxic materials as a byproduct of oxidative thermal
decomposition when exposed to fire.   See section 10 for further information




Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

      


STEPS TO BE TAKEN IF MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED:
Spills should be contained with mechanical barriers.  Add absorbent to the
spill area (e.g. absorbent fabrics, sand, earth, sawdust).  Transfer spilled
material and saturated absorbents to suitable containers for disposal.

WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD:  Dispose of in accordance with all Federal, State,
and local regulations.



Section 7: Handling and Storage


PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE:
Normal precautions common to safe manufacturing practice should be followed
in handling and storage.

Keep container closed, in a cool dry place.

Any proposed use of this product in elevated-temperature processes should be
thoroughly evaluated to assure that safe operating conditions are
established and maintained.



Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE VALUES AND SOURCE:  None.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION:  None should be required for normal use.

VENTILATION:
General (mechanical) room ventilation is expected to be satisfactory for
normal handling.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES:  Nitrile  gloves or similar types.

EYE PROTECTION:  Use safety goggles.

OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:  Eye bath and safety shower.
