3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:

Eye: Not expected to be an eye irritant.

Skin: Not expected to be a skin irritant.

Inhalation (Breathing): No information available.

Ingestion (Swallowing): No information available.

Signs and Symptoms: Effects of overexposure may include irritation of the
nose, throat and digestive tract.

Cancer:  No data available.

Target Organs: No data Available

Developmental: No data available.

Pre-Existing Medical Conditions: None known.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Eye: If irritation or redness develops, move victim away from exposure and into
fresh air. Flush eyes with clean water. If symptoms persist, seek medical
attention.

Skin: Remove contaminated shoes and clothing, and cleanse affected area(s)
thoroughly  by washing with mild soap and water and, if necessary, a waterless
skin cleanser. If irritation or redness develops or persists, seek medical attention.

Inhalation (Breathing): If respiratory symptoms develop, move victim away
from source of exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical
attention. If victim is not breathing, clear airway and immediately begin artificial
respiration. If breathing difficulties develop, oxygen should be administered by
qualified personnel. Seek immediate medical attention.

Ingestion (Swallowing): If swallowed, seek emergency medical attention. If
victim is drowsy or unconscious and vomiting, place on left side with the head
down and do not give anything by mouth. If possible, do not leave victim
unattended and observe closely for adequacy of breathing.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flammable properties:
Flash Point: None
OSHA Flammability Class: N/A
LEL/UEL: No data
Autoignition Temperature: No data

Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards: No unusual fire or explosion hazards are
expected.

Extinguishing Media: Use extinguishing agent suitable for type of surrounding
fire.

Fire Fighting Instructions: For fires beyond the incipient stage, emergency
responders in the immediate hazard area should wear bunker gear. When the
potential chemical hazard is unknown, in enclosed or confined spaces, or when
explicitly required by DOT, a self-contained breathing apparatus should be
worn. In addition, war other appropriate protective equipment as condition
warrant (see Section 8). Isolate immediate hazard area and keep unauthorized
personnel out. Stop spill/release if it can be done with minimal risk. Move
undamaged containers from immediate hazard area if it can be done with
minimal risk. Water spray may be useful in minimizing or dispersing vapors. Cool
equipment exposed to fire with water, if it can be done with minimal risk.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURE
Stay upwind and away from spill/release. Notify person down wind of
spill/release, isolate immediate hazard area and keep unauthorized personnel
out. Stop spill/release if it can be done with minimal risk. Wear appropriate
protective equipment including respiratory protection as conditions warrant (see
Section 8). Prevent spilled material from entering sewers, storm drains, other
unauthorized treatment drainage systems, and natural waterways. Dike far
ahead of spill for later recovery or disposal. Spilled material may by absorbed
into an appropriate absorbed material. Notify appropriate federal, state, and
local agencies. Immediate cleanup of any spill is recommended.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not wear contaminated clothing
or shoes. Use good personal hygiene practice.

Storage: Protect container(s) against physical damage.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering controls: If current ventilation practices are not adequate to
minimize exposure, additional ventilation or exhaust systems may be required.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

Respiratory:
A NIOSH/MSHA approve air purifying respirator with a N95 filter
may be used under conditions where airborne concentrations are expected to
exceed exposure limits (see Section 2).

Protection provided by air purifying respirators is limited. (see manufacturer's
respirator selection guide). Use a positive pressure air supplied respirator if
there is potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or
any other circumstances where air purifying respirators may not provide
adequate protection. A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29
CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever
workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.

Skin: The use of gloves impermeable to the specific material handled is advised
to prevent skin contact, possible irritation, absorption, and skin damage (see
glove manufacturer literature for information on permeability).

Eye/Face: Approved eye protection to safeguard against potential eye contact,
irritation, or injury is recommended. Depending on conditions of use, a face
shield may be necessary.

Other Protective Equipment: A Source of clean water should be available in
the work area for flushing eyes and skin. Impervious clothing should be worn.
