    LIGHT-HEADEDNESS, GIDDINESS, SHORTNESS OF B REATH, AND MAY LEAD TO
    NARCOSIS, CARDIAC IRREGULARITIES, UNCONSCIOUSNESS OR DEATH.
    SKIN/EYE: IRRITATION AND FROSTBITE.
Explanation of Carcinogenicity:NOT LISTED AS A CARCINOGEN BY IARC, NTP
    OR OSHA.
Effects of Overexposure:BREATHING HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF VAPOR MAY
    CAUSE LIGHT-HEADEDNESS, GIDDINESS, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, AND MAY
    LEAD TO NARCOSIS, CARDIAC IRREGULARITIES, UNCONSCIOUSNESS OR DEATH.
    LIQUID IS IRRITATING TO S KIN AND EYES, AND MAY CAUSE FROSTBITE.
