                                Loss of consciousness may occur. Headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and drowsiness may
         Inhalation:
                                occur.
                                Although ingestion is unlikely, liquid would irritate upper digestive tract if swallowed. Ingestion of
         Ingestion:
                                this product would cause headache, dizziness, fatigue and central nervous system depression.


    4.     FIRST AID MEASURES


Eye Contact:                    Flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Obtain medical attention.
Skin Contact:                   Flush skin with large amounts of water. If irritation persists, get medical attention.
Inhalation:                     If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give
                                oxygen. Get medical attention immediately
                                                                       1
Ingestion:
                             Do not induce vomiting. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Guard against
                            aspiration into lungs by having the individual turn on to their left side. If vomiting occurs
                            spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration of liquid into the lungs. Seek immediate
                            medical attention.

Notes to Physician:          If symptoms such as loss of gag reflex, convulsions or unconsciousness occur before vomiting,
                            gastric lavage with a cuffed endotracheal tube should be considered. Metabolism of isopropanol
                            forms acetone, which may be detected in the urine and expired air. In contrast to diabetic acidosis,
                            acidosis will occur in the absence of hyperglycemia. Hemodialysis should be considered in severe
                            acute intoxications.

Extinguishing Media:                                Use DRY chemicals, C02, alcohol foam or water spray.

Special Exposure Hazards:                           Vapor forms a flammable / explosive mixture with air between upper and
                                                    lower flammable limits. Do not enter confined fire space without adequate
                                                    protective clothing and an approved positive pressure self-contained
                                                    breathing apparatus. Isolate and restrict area access. Closed containers may
                                                    explode in fire. Containers exposed to intense heat from fires should be
                                                    cooled with water to prevent vapor pressure build-up which could result in
                                                    container rupture. Fight fire from maximum distance. Always stay away from
                                                    ends of containers due to explosive potential.

Special Protective Equipment:                       Fire fighters should wear full protective clothing, including self-contained
                                                    breathing equipment.

    6.   ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES


Procedure for Clean Up:           Eliminate all ignition sources. Isolate hazard area and restrict access. Try to work upwind of
                                  spill. Avoid direct contact with material. Saturated clothing should be immediately removed to
                                  avoid flammability hazard. Wear appropriate breathing apparatus (if applicable) and protective
                                  clothing. Stop leak only if safe to do so. Dike and contain land spills; contain water spills by
                                  booming. Use water fog to knock down vapors; contain runoff. For large spills, remove by
                                  mechanical means and place in appropriate containers for disposal. Absorb residue or small
                                  spills with absorbent material and remove to non leaking containers for disposal. Flush area
                                  with water to remove trace residue.

Personal Precautionary Measures:               Wear appropriate protective equipment.

Environmental Precautionary Measures:                   Spills or releases should be reported, if required to the appropriate local,
                                                        state and federal agencies. Prevent from entering sewers, waterways or low
                                                        areas.




                                                                 2
    7.    HANDLING AND STORAGE


Handling:          Flammable. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld or perform similar operations on or near containers. Vapors may
                   accumulate and travel to distant ignition sources and flashback. Empty containers may contain hazardous product
                   residues. Fixed equipment as well as transfer containers and equipment should be grounded to prevent
                   accumulation of static charge. Hot surfaces may be sufficient to ignite liquid even in the absence of sparks or
                   flames. Extinguish pilot lights, cigarettes and turn off other sources of ignition prior to use and until all vapors is
                   gone. Do not pressurize drum containers to empty them. Avoid breathing vapors and prolonged or repeated
                   contact with skin. Launder contaminated clothing prior to reuse. Use good personal hygiene. Air-dry
                   contaminated clothing in a well ventilated area before laundering. Avoid frequent opening and closing of
                   containers and repeated exposure to air as explosive peroxides may be formed.

Storage:           Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area, away from heat and ignition sources. Use explosion-proof ventilation to
                   prevent vapor accumulation. Can attack aluminum at elevated temperature.



    8.    EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION


Engineering Controls:                            Mechanical ventilation is recommended for all indoor situations to control fugitive
                                                 emissions. Electrical and mechanical equipment should be explosion-proof.
                                                 Concentrations in air should be maintained below lower explosive limit at all times
                                                 or below the recommended threshold limit value if unprotected personnel are
                                                 involved. Make up air should always be supplied to balance air exhausted (either
                                                 generally or locally). Local ventilation recommended where mechanical ventilation
                                                 is ineffective in controlling airborne concentrations below the recommended
                                                 occupational exposure limit. For personnel entry into confined spaces (i.e. bulk
                                                 storage tanks) a proper confined space entry procedure must be followed including
                                                 ventilation and testing of tank atmosphere.

Respiratory Protection:                          If exposure exceeds occupational exposure limits, use an appropriate NIOSH -
                                                 approved respirator. Use a NIOSH-approved chemical cartridge respirator with
                                                 organic vapor cartridges or use a NIOSH-approved supplied-air respirator. For high
                                                 airborne concentrations, use a NIOSH -approved supplied-air respirator, either self-
                                                 contained or airline breathing apparatus, operated in positive pressure mode.

Gloves:                                          Impervious gloves. Viton gloves. Nitrile gloves
Skin Protection:                                 In confined spaces or where the risk of skin exposure is much higher, impervious
                                                 clothing should be worn.

Eyes:                                            Splash goggles
Other Personal Protection Data:                  Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station
                                                 location.
