occurs, remove to fresh air and call a physician.
EYE CONTACT:  Remove contact lenses.  Flush eyes with cool water for
at least 15 minutes.  Hold eyelids apart while flushing to rinse
entire surface of eyes and lids.   Call a physician.
SKIN CONTACT:  Remove contaminated clothing.  Wash skin with mild soap
and water.  If irritation or any other symptoms occur, call a
physician.

induce vomiting.
OTHER INSTRUCTIONS:  None.

                       V.  FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
----------------------------------------------------------------------
FLASH POINT (CC, F): 127
RECOMMENDED FIRE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:  Carbon-dioxide, foam, or dry
chemicals.
RECOMMENDED PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIREFIGHTERS AND SPECIAL
PROCEDURES:  Use of self-contained breathing apparatus with full face
piece operated in the positive pressure demand mode when fighting
fires.  Protective clothing is recommended.  Prevent contact with skin
and eyes.  Cool fire exposed containers.
UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS:  Combustible liquid.  Avoid heat,
sparks, and open flames.

                   VI.  ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
----------------------------------------------------------------------
PROCEDURES IN CASE OF ACCIDENTAL RELEASE, BREAKAGE, OR LEAKAGE:
Ventilate area.  Avoid breathing vapor.  Avoid contact with skin, eyes
and clothing.  Pressure demand air supplied respirators should always
be worn when the airborne concentration of the contaminant or oxygen
is unknown.  Otherwise, wear NIOSH approved respiratory protection and
other personal protective equipment as appropriate for the potential
exposure hazard.  Remove any sources of flame or sparks.  Contain
spill if possible.  Absorb spill with vermiculite or other suitable
absorbant material.  Shovel up material and place in approved disposal
container.  Dispose of in accordance with current local, state, and
federal laws and regulations.

                  VII.  HANDLING AND STORAGE INFORMATION

----------------------------------------------------------------------
This preparation has not been subjected to toxicological testing as an
entity but has been blended from materials with established
toxicological bibliographies.  In view of the difficulty of using
current standard toxicological evaluation techniques to predict
potential hazards to susceptible individuals or arising from
unforeseeable potentiation, this preparation should be considered and
handled as if it displayed health hazards and treated in consequence
with all possible precaution.

                       XII.  ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
----------------------------------------------------------------------

an entity.  In view of the difficulty of using current standard
ecotoxicological evaluation techniques to predict the impact of
particular modes of release on vulnerable or localised parts of the
ecosystem, this preparation should be considered and handled as if it
displayed potential environmental hazards, and treated in consequence
with all possible precaution.

                      XIII.  DISPOSAL CONSIDERATION
