SECTION IV 鈥? FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA
FLASH POINT: 59 F METHOD USED: TCC
FLAMMABLE LIMITS IN AIR BY VOLUMELOWER: 1.0 UPPER: 7.0
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: FOAM. Blanket fire with this extinguishing media.
SPECIAL FIREFIGHTING PROCEDURES:
For fires involving this material, do not enter any enclosed or confined fire space without
proper protective equipment. Selfcontained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece
operated in pressuredemand or other positive pressure mode to protect against the
hazardous effects of normal products of combustion or oxygen deficiency.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS:
Vapors are heavier than air and may travel along the ground or be moved by ventilation and
ignited by heat, pilot lights, other flames and ignition sources at locations distant from
material handling point. Never use welding or cutting torch on or near drum (even empty)
because product (just residue) can ignite
EXPLOSIVELY! Thermal decomposition of this product will produce carbon monoxide and

SECTION VI 鈥? HEALTH HAZARD DATA
NHALATION HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Use only with adequate ventilation. If adequate ventilation is not possible, such as in a closed
room or other situations where air flow is minimal or nonexistent, see section VIII for
information regarding respiratory protection. Do not breathe dust or spray mist. Ensure fresh
air entry during application and drying. For spray application, sanding, abrading, and dust
cleanup, wear an appropriate properly fitted respirator (NIOSH/MSHA TC21C approved).
Follow respirator manufacturer's directions for respirator use. If affected, remove to fresh air.
If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If breathing has stopped, give artificial
respiration. Get medical attention.
SKIN AND EYE CONTACT HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Exposure may cause drying of the skin with mild irritation. Symptoms may include: redness,
burning sensation, drying and cracking. Exposure with material may cause moderate eye
irritation. Symptoms may include: tearing, redness, and stinging sensation. Corneal
involvement or visual impairment is not expected to occur.
SKIN ABSORPTION HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Prolonged exposure limit may result in the absorption of harmful amounts of material.
INGESTION HEALTH RISKS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Excessive breathing of vapors can cause nasal and respiratory irritation, dizziness, weakness,
fatigue, nausea, headache, possible unconsciousness, and even asphyxiation. Can cause
gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Aspiration of material into lungs
and cause chemical pneumonitis which can be fatal.
HEALTH HAZARDS (ACUTE AND CHRONIC)
Potential local and systemic effects due to single or short term overexposure to the eyes and
skin or through inhalation or ingestion.
HEALTH HAZARDS OF PREVIOUS COATINGS
WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS
TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE,
ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVIOD EXPOSURE. Wear a
NIOSHapproved respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum
and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by
contacting the National Lead Information hotline at 1800424 LEAD or log on to
CARCINOGENICITY: NTP CARCINOGEN: No IARC MONOGRAPHS: Yes OSHA REGULATED: Yes
This material is not listed as a human carcinogenic.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: None known.
EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES
SKIN: Wash exposed area with soap and water.
EYES: Flush with large amounts of water.
SECTION VII 鈥? PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED
Eliminate all ignition sources (flares, flames including pilot lights and electrical sparks).
Persons not wearing protective equipment should be excluded from area of spill until cleanup
had been completed. Stop spill at source, dike area of spill to prevent spreading, pump liquid
to salvage tank. Remaining liquid may be taken up with sand, clay, earth, floor absorbent, or
other absorbent material and shoveled into containers. Prevent runoff sewers, streams, or
other bodies of water.
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD
Destroy by liquid incineration. Material collected on absorbent material may be deposited in
an approved toxic substance landfill in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORING
Store in a cool, dry area. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Keep containers
closed when not in use. Use only with adequate ventilation.
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain
product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in this data sheet
must be observed. READ AND OBSERVE ALL PRECAUTIONS ON LABEL!
SECTION VIII 鈥? CONTROL MEASURES
If TLV of the product or any component is exceeded, a NIOSH/MESA jointly approved self-
breathing apparatus with a full face piece operated in pressure demand or other positive
pressure mode is advised; however, OSHA regulations also permit other NIOSH/MESA
respirators under specified conditions. (See your safety equipment supplier).
Provide sufficient mechanical and/or local exhaust to maintain exposure below TLV(s).
Wear resistant gloves such as: BUNAN
Chemical splash goggles in compliance with OSHA regulations are advised, unless full
facepiece respirator is worn.
OTHER PROTECTIVE CLOTHING OR EQUIPMENT:
To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing and boots.
Wash hands thoroughly after handling this product.
