C deg F. Flammable Limits (% by volume in air) LEL % N/A UEL % N/A Extinguishing Media: Water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam. Explosion Hazards: Flammable liquid. Special Instructions: Explosive vapor could form. SECTION VI – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personal Safeguards Remove all source of ignition. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, flame retardant protective clothing. Shut off leaks if without risk. Environmental Precautions Contain or absorb leaking liquid with inert material (e.g. sand, earth). Prevent liquid from entering sewers, basements and work pits, as vapor may build up and create explosive atmosphere. If substance has entered a watercourse, sewer, or contaminated soil or vegetation advise appropriate local authorities. Spill Clean-up Procedures Industrial: In the event of spill, the product will not readily flow, however, dike/contain the spill with inert material (e.g. sand, earth.), transfer liquid to containers for disposal. Prevent liquid from entering sewers, watercourses or low areas. Household: Product used in household may be disposed of in refuse or sewer. SECTION VII – HANDLING AND STORAGE Recommended Storage Temperature: None Personal Precautions for Safe Storage and Handling: Use only in an area provide with appropriate localized exhaust ventilation. Store at room temperature, keep away from sources of ignition, heat and direct sunlight. Prevent liquid from entering sewers, watercourses or low areas. Conditions for Safe Storage: Keep container tightly closed and sealed, while ensuring pressure release valve is fitted. Store at room temperature, keep away from sources of ignition, heat and direct sunlight. SECTION VIII – EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION This section only applies to the product when used in an industrial setting. Ventilation: The product is flammable, keep away from sources of ignition, heat, direct sunlight and precautions must be taken to reduce the possibility of static discharge that may cause ignition of organic vapors. Ground the container before handling and use non-sparking tools. Do not cut, drill, weld or grind on or near this container. Ensure adequate localized ventilation to remove vapor build up that is the concern for cause of ignition of the product. Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields.
