Special Fire Fighting Procedures:                Do not expose containers to temperatures above 120 F.

Unusual Fire and Explosion:                Forms flammable vapor-air mixtures. Lower temperatures increase the difficulty of getting it to ignite.


SECTION V-Health Hazard and First Aid

Time Weighted Average (TWA):      50 ppm based in the raw material TWA

Carcinogen:                                           No

Acute Chronic Health Effects:           Excessive exposure may cause irritation to upper respiratory tract. Excessive exposure may cause                                                                      carboxyhemoglobinemia, thereby impairing the bloods ability to transport oxygen.

Primary Routes of Entry:                     X Inhalation                              X Skin                    X Ingestion

Effects of Overexposure:                    Eyes- May cause pain, moderate eye irritation, and slight corneal injury, Vapors may irritate eyes.

                                                                Skin- May cause irritation. Repeated contact may cause drying or flaking of skin.

                                                                Inhalation- In confined or poorly ventilated areas, vapors can readily accumulate and cause                                                                      unconsciousness and death.

                                                                Ingestion- May be harmful.

First Aid:

                                                                Eyes- Flush with water for 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.

                                                                Skin- Wash with soap and water.
