03: COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
04: FIRST AID MEASURES
General Advice: Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped
trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.
Inhalation: If respiratory irritation occurs, go to fresh air, flood work area with fresh air. If irritation continues, seek medical attention
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash affected area(s) thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.
SOLVENTS SHOULD NOT BE USED because they carry the irritant into the skin.
Eye Contact: Flush the eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If necessary, gently hold eyelids open during the flush. Immediately seek medical attention
Ingestion: Obtain immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Should vomiting occur, be sure to keep the victim’s head below hips to avoid
aspiration of vomit into the lungs.
05: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: None. Avoid breathing smoke. NFPA Class B-C extinguisher (dry chemical or foam) for class 1C fires. Water spray may be ineffective on fire but can protect fire-fighters
and cool closed containers. Use fog nozzles if water is used. Use supplied breathing masks.
Protection of firefighters: Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield,
gloves, rubber boots and in enclosed spaces SCBA. Structural firefighters protective clothing will only provide limited protection.
06: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal Precautions: Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Avoid inhalation of vapors and spray mists. Keep out of low areas. Do not touch damaged containers or
spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Follow facility/company’s emergency plans.
Small Spills: Absorb with an inert material (sand, vermiculite). Sweep or scoop up and put into disposal containers. Flush area immediately with water (prevent water
from entering waterways).
Large Spills: Dike area far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal. Do not release into sewers or waterways. Absorb with an inert material (sand, vermiculite). Sweep or
scoop up into disposal containers. Flush area immediately with water (prevent water from entering waterways)
Regulatory Requirements: Follow applicable OSH regulations (29 CFR 1910.120). Eliminate all ignition sources (flares, flames including pilot lights, electrical sparks). Persons not wearing
protective equipment should be excluded from the area or until spill clean-up has been completed.
07: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling Precautions: For professional use only. Avoid eye/skin contact. Wash after using and before eating or smoking. Avoid breathing vapors. Use as directed. Avoid
uncontrolled mixing with other mixtures (strong acids, bases, and oxidizers). Do not use a solvent to thin. Respiratory protection is required when
ventilation is inadequate. NIOSH/OSHA approved respirators should be provided and worn.
Storage Requirements: Store in a cool/dry location. Do not allow the material to freeze, as the product may be damaged. Store away from sparks and open flames.
08: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering Controls: HMIS PP, H | Splash Goggles, Gloves, Apron, Vapor Respirator Use local and general exhaust ventilation to maintain airborne concentrations
below TLV. Suitable respiratory equipment should be used in cases of insufficient ventilation or where operational procedures demand it.
Personal Protective Equipment RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Seek professional advice prior to respirator selection and use. Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR 1910.134) and if
necessary, wear OSHA/NIOSH approved respirator.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING/EQUIPMENT: Wear chemically protective gloves, boots, and aprons to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact. Wear protective
goggles and face shield, per OSHA eye and face protection (29 CFR 1910.133)
CONTAMINATED EQUIPMENT: Separate contaminated work clothing from street clothing. Launder before reuse. Remove this material from your work
shoes and clean personal protective equipment.
OTHER PRECAUTIONS: Never eat, drink or smoke in work areas. This material is not listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the National
Toxicology Program, or the Occuptional Safety and Health Administration.
