SECTION VI - ENVIRONMENTAL AND DISPOSAL INFORMATION
CAUTION: Use appropriate protective and safety equipment. See Section VIII of this Material Safety Data Sheet for handling precautions.
SMALL SPILL: Slowly neutralize with diluted hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid to pH range between 6 and 9. Mop up or soak up with non-combustible absorbent inorganic material. Transfer to DOT-approved container.
LARGE SPILL: Contain by diking with a non-combustible absorbent inorganic material. Prevent runoff from entering sewers, storm drains, surface water, and soil. Slowly neutralize with diluted hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid to pH range between 6 and 9. Transfer neutralized solution and contaminated absorbent to a DOT-approved container.
WASTE DISPOSAL INFORMATION: Consult appropriate federal, state, and local regulatory agencies to ascertain proper disposal procedures.
NOTE: Comply with all applicable government regulations on spill reporting and handling and disposal of waste. Empty containers can have residues, gases, and mists, and are subject to proper disposal.


SECTION VII - HEALTH HAZARD DATA
BREATHED: Vapors and mists of a component(s) are extremely corrosive to nose, throat, and mucous membranes. The effects include: irritation, coughing, chest pain, difficulty in breathing, bronchitis, pulmonary edema, and chemical pneumonitis. Prolonged exposure may result in more severe irritation and tissue damage.
SKIN CONTACT: Vapors, mists, and liquid of a component(s) at full concentration will severely burn the skin. Prolonged contact over a large area of the body may be fatal. Effects may be delayed.
SKIN ABSORPTION: Components are unlikely to be absorbed through skin in harmful concentrations.
EYE CONTACT: May cause severe irritation with corneal injury which may result in permanent impairment of vision or even blindness. Vapors may irritate the eye and liquid may cause irritation and corneal injury.
SWALLOWED: Swallowing a component(s) may cause burns of the mouth and throat and irritation or ulceration to the stomach and intestines. Swallowing a component(s) may cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea and possibly unconsciousness.
SYSTEMIC AND OTHER EFFECTS: If a chronic effect has not been mentioned under a route of entry, no chronic effects are known to result from exposure to components of this product.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED: Component(s) of this product may aggravate pre-existing eye diseases.
SUSPECTED CANCER AGENT:

No No No No
TARGET ORGANS, OTHER THAN THOSE IMPLIED BY ROUTES OF ENTRY (i.e., BREATHED, INCLUDES RESPIRATORY TRACT AND LUNGS) ARE CAPITALIZED.


SECTION VIII - FIRST AID
BREATHED: Remove victim to fresh air at once. If not breathing, give mouth-to mouth resuscitation. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Keep victim warm and at rest. GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
SKIN: Wash skin immediately with lots of soap and water. If clothes and shoes are contaminated, remove and wash before reuse. Get medical attention if ill effect or irritation develops. Leather articles of clothing may have to be destroyed if contaminated.
EYES: Wash eyes immediately with running water for at least 15 minutes. Use fingers to assure that eyelids are separated and that eye is being washed. Lift the lower and upper lid occasionally. GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
SWALLOWED: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If victim is conscious, give large amounts of water. If available give several glasses of milk. Do not attempt to give fluids to unconscious victim. GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN:
Supportive care: Treatment based on judgement of physician in response to reactions of patient.


SECTION IX - HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
VENTILATION: Control airborne concentrations below exposure guidelines (Section I) with MECHANICAL VENTILATION, if necessary. Local explosion-proof EXHAUST VENTILATION may be necessary for some operations.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Atmospheric levels should be maintained below exposure guidelines. When respiratory protection is required for certain operations, use an NIOSH-approved cannister-type respirator. In confined or poorly ventilated areas or for emergency and other conditions where the exposure guidelines may be greatly exceeded, use an approved positive-pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus.
EYE PROTECTION: Contact lenses should not be used. Contact lenses may increase the severity of the injury. Suggested protection is safety glasses, but where contact with liquid is likely, chemical goggles or face shields are recommended.
SKIN PROTECTION: Impermeable gloves are recommended. When prolonged or frequently repeated contact could occur, use protective clothing. Selection of specific items such as boots, apron, or full-body suit will depend on operation. Wash thoroughly after handling chemicals.
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: Suitable safety equipment includes safety showers, eye washes, and proper fire extinguishing media.


SECTION X - STORAGE AND HANDLING
Train all employees on all special handling procedures in this section before they work with this product. Exercise reasonable care and caution. Personnel should avoid breathing vapors and/or mists and getting product in the eyes or on the skin.
DO NOT CONSUME food, drink, or tobacco in areas where they may become contaminated with this material. Keep containers cool, dry, and away from sources of ignition.
DO NOT STORE product in direct sunlight, high temperatures, or below freezing areas. Keep product container tightly closed when not in use. Protect containers from physical damage. Use and store with adequate ventilation.
DO NOT cut, grind, weld or drill on or near this container. Ground all equipment. Wash thoroughly after using.
