Section 3: Hazard Identification


Emergency Overview:
Potential Health Effects:

Inhalation:

        Major potential rout of exposure. Minimal effects observed
        below 1000 ppm. Dizziness, drowsiness, and throat irritation
        possible at levels above 1,000 ppm. Unconsciousness and death
        at levels above 10,000 ppm.  Blood pressure depression, cardiac
        sensitization, and ventricular arrhythmia can result from
        exposure to near-anesthetic levels.

Eyes:
        Liquid can cause slight, temporary irritation with slight temporary
        corneal injury. Vapors can irritate eyes.

Skin:
        Prolonged or repeated contact with liquid can cause freezing of skin
        tissues, defatting, and dermatitis.


Ingestion:
        Single dose toxicity is low to moderate. If vomiting occurs
        the liquid can be aspirated into the lungs, which can cause
        chemical pneumonia and systemic effects. Human psychotropic,
        gastrointestinal, and central nervous system effects possible.


Section 4: First Aid Measures


Inhalation:  Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation
             of vapors.  If victim has stopped breathing, give
             artificial respiration.  Call for prompt medical
             attention.

Eye Contact:  Flush eyes with large amounts of water for 15
              minutes or until irritation subsides.  If irritations
              persist, get medical attention.

Skin Contact:  Remove contaminated clothing (including shoes)
               and wash before reuse.  Flush with large amounts
               of water.  Use soap if available.  If irritation
               persists, seek medical attention.

Ingestion:     Do not induce vomiting unless directed by a
               physician.  If conscious and alert, give two
               glasses of water.  Seek medical attention
               immediately.



Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

Flash Point & Method:     None TCC Method

Flammable Limits:         LEL: NA     UEL: NA

Autoignition Temperature:

General Hazard:
    Aerosol cans may erupt with force at temperatures above 49C (120 F).

Fire Fighting Instructions:

    Fire fighters should wear self contained, positive-pressure breathing
    apparatus and avoid skin contact.

Fire Fighting Equipment:
    Water, foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide.

Hazardous Combustion Products:
    Smoke, fumes and oxides of carbon.



Section 6: Accidental Release Measures


Land Spill:

  Evacuate area. Ventilate area well and avoid breathing vapors. Vapor
  concentration will be highest along floor and in low lying areas. Pick
  up liquid on suitable absorbent and store in sealed containers.


Water Spill:
  The high vapor pressure of this material will result in its evaporation
  before it could make its way into any sewer or waterway.



Section 7: Handling and Storage


Storage Temperature:  Ambient

Storage Pressure:  Atmospheric


General:  Keep container closed when not in use.  Store in
          cool, well ventilated place out of direct sunlight
          and away from incompatible materials.

         (See STABILITY AND REACTIVITY Section 10.)  Follow all MSD Sheet
         and Label warnings even after container is emptied.



Section 8: Exposure Controls and Personal Protection


Engineering Controls:
     Local Exhaust ventilation acceptable.
        
     See section 2 for component exposure guidelines.

Personal Protection:

Respirator:

         If concentrations are over the exposure limit and are
         known, air purifying respirator with Organic Vapor
         Cartridges may be acceptable.  Refer to cartridges
         for acceptable levels.  If concentrations are over
         exposure limit and are unknown, use a supplied air
         respirator.

Hand Protection:
         (X) Gloves recommended
         (X) Solvex          (X) Neoprene
         (X) Butyl           (X) Buna
         (X) Natural Latex   (X) Cotton/Jersey

Eye Protection:
         (X) Safety Glasses  ( ) Chemical Goggles  ( ) Full Face Shield

Other Recommendations:

         ( ) Rubber Boots    ( ) Splash-proof chemical resistant suit/apron
