=======================  First Aid Measures  =======================

First Aid:SKIN: WASH W/SOAP & WATER. REMOVE/LAUNDER CONTAMINATED
    CLOTHING BEFORE REUSE. EYE: FLUSH W/WATER. GET MED ATT. INGESTION:
    DON'T INDUCE VOMITING, KEEP PERSON WARM, QUIET/GET MED ATT.
    INHALATION: MOVE T O FRESH AIR. IF BREATHING IS
    DIFFICULT.ADMINISTER OXYGEN. IF BREATHING HAS STOPPED GIVE
    ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION. KEEP PERSON WARM, QUIET & GET MED ATT.
    DON'T GIVE STIMULANTS.

=====================  Fire Fighting Measures  =====================

Flash Point:>200F
Extinguishing Media:REGULAR FOAM, WATER FOG, CO2, DRY CHEMICAL
Fire Fighting Procedures:WEAR SCBA W/A FULL FACEPIECE OPERATED IN

    MOVED BY VENTILATION/IGNITED BY FLAMES.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:NEVER USE WELDING OR CUTTING TORCH ON OR
    NEAR DRUM (EVEN EMPTY) BECAUSE PRODUCT (EVEN JUST RESIDUE) CAN
    IGNITE EXPLOSIVELY.

==================  Accidental Release Measures  ==================

Spill Release Procedures:ABSORB ON ABSORBENT MATERIAL/TRANSFER TO HOOD.
    ELIMINATE IGNITION SOURCES (FLAMES/SPARKS). STOP SPILL AT SOURCE,
    DIKE AREA OF SPILL TO PREVENT SPREADING, PUMP LIQUID TO SALVAGE
    TANK. LIQUID MAY BE TAK EN UP ON SAND/EARTH/CLAY/SHOVELED INTO
    CONTAINERS.

======================	Handling and Storage  ======================

Handling and Storage Precautions:CONTAINERS OF THIS MATERIAL MAY BE

STRONG OXIDIZING AGENTS

====================  Disposal Considerations  ====================

Waste Disposal Methods:ALLOW VOLATILE PORTIONS TO EVAPORATE IN
    HOOD/SUFFICIENT TIME FOR VAPORS TO CLEAR HOOD DUCT WORK, DESTROY BY
    LIQUID INCINERATION W/OFF-GAS SCRUBBED. CONTAMINATED ABSORBENT MAY
    BE DEPOSITED IN A LANDFIL L IN ACCORDANCE W/LOCAL/STATE/FEDERAL
    REGULATIIONS
