ANY EVIDENCE OF BEING CARCINOGENIC.
Effects of Overexposure:PROLONGED OVEREXPOSURE OF VAPORS MAY CAUSE
COUGHING, DIZZINESS, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, AND INTOXICATION.
Medical Cond Aggravated by Exposure:MATERIAL OR ITS EMISSIONS MAY
AFFECT MUCOUA TISSUE AND/OR AGGRAVATE MUCOUS MEMBRANE DYSFUNCTION.

First Aid

First Aid:INHALATION:REMOVE VICTIM TO FRESH AIR IMMEDIATELY. GIVE
OXYGEN OR PERFORM CPR. OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION. EYE:IMMEDIATELY
RINSE WITH CLEAN WATER FOR 20-30 MIN. OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.

Handling and Storage Precautions:STORE IN TIGHTLY CLOSED CONTAINERS
AWAY FROM HEAT,SPARKS,OPEN FLAME & STRONG OXIDIZING AGENTS. EMPTY
CONTAINERS MAY CONTAIN FLAMMABLE VAPOR RESIDUE.
Other Precautions:USE NON-SPARKING TOOLS. VENT CAREFULLY BEFORE
REMOVING CLOSURE. GROUND CONTAINERS W/NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
EQUIPMENT BEFORE TRANSFERRING MATERIAL. MATERIAL MAY ATTACK SOME
FORMS OF PLASTIC, ALUMINUM , RUBBER AND COATINGS.

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:IF EXPOSURE EXCEEDS THE PEL/TLV, USE NIOSH/MSHA
APPROVED RESPIRATORY PROTECTION EQUIPMENT AS SPECIFIED IN THE
NIOSH/OSHA 1981 OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH GUIDELINES FOR CHEMICAL
HAZARDS.
Ventilation:NO SPECIAL VENTILATION BEYOND THAT FOR NORMAL COMFORT IS
USUALLY REQUIRED TO MEET EXPOSURE STANDARDS.
Protective Gloves:NOT NORMALLY CONSIDERED A SKIN HAZARD.

USING TOILET FACILITIES. WASH CONTAMINATED CLOTHING BEFORE REUSE.
Supplemental Safety and Health
ISOLATE, VENT, DRAIN, WASH & PURGE SYSTEMS OR EQUIPMENT BEFORE
MAINTENANCE OR REPAIR. REMOVE ALL IGNITION SOURCES, CHECK
ATMOSPHERE FOR EXPLOSIVENESS & OXYGEN DEFICIENCIES. USE ADEQUATE
PERSONAL PROTE CTIVE EQUIPMENT. OBSERVE PRECAUTIONS PERTAINING TO
CONFINED SPACE ENTRY.
