EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush with plenty of water, Continue for 15 minutes. Call a physician.

SKIN CONTACT: Wash affected area with soap and water.

INHALATION: If exposed to decomposition products, remove person to fresh air. Call a physician.

IF SWALLOWED: Call a physician or Poison Control Center with detailed description. Include possible material that contaminated liquid during use.


SECTION VIII - PRECAUTIONARY INFORMATION

EYE PROTECTION: Safety Glasses

SKIN PROTECTION: None required at room temperature.

RECOMMENDED VENTILATION: Local exhaust recommended for temperatures, > or at boiling point.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: If decomposition occurs, in the absence of adequate ventilation, an air supplied respirator should be worn.

PREVENTION OF ACCIDENTAL INGESTION: Not determined.

RECOMMENDED STORAGE: Not determined.

FIRE AND EXPLOSION AVOIDANCE: Not determined.

OTHER PRECAUTIONARY INFORMATION:

Not expected to present a hazard when used with good industrial hygiene practices under the following conditions. Use only in areas with sufficient local exhaust ventilation to maintain airborne concentrations at recognized health and safety levels. Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors. Do not breathe thermal decomposition products, Avoid eye contact; wear safety glasses. Do not smoke when using the product. Local exhaust ventilation with a minimum capture velocity of 50 linear feet per minute should be provided for applications at or above the boiling point. If interfering air currents are present, minimum capture velocity should be at least 100 linear feet per minute.

* SKIN NOTATION: Listed substances indicated with 'Y' under SKIN refer to the potential contribution to the overall exposure by the cutaneous route including mucous membrane and eye, either by airborne or, more particularly, by direct contact with the substance. Vehicles can alter skin absorption.

SOURCE OF EXPOSURE LIMIT DATA: NONE (None Established)


SECTION IX - HEALTH HAZARD DATA

EYE CONTACT: Not expected to produce significant irritation of the eyes on contact. After product has been in use, contaminants may be introduced that may cause irritation of the eyes.

SKIN CONTACT: Not expected to cause irritation of the skin after limited, direct contact. After product has been in use, contaminants may be introduced that may cause irritation to the skin.

INHALATION: The hazards associated with vapors of product are expected to be low, Above the boiling point small amounts of toxic decomposition products which may include hydrogen fluoride (HF) and perfluoroisobutylene (PFIB) may occur. Hydrogen fluoride (HF) has an ACGIH threshold limit value of 3 ppm of fluoride as a ceiling limit and an OSHA PEL of 3 ppm of fluoride as an 8 hour time-weighted average and 6 ppm of fluoride as a Short Term Exposure Limit. Perfluoroisobutylene (PFIB) has a 3M recommended exposure guideline of 0.01 parts per million parts of air as a ceiling value.

IF SWALLOWED: Expected to be practically non-toxic by ingestion. After product has been in use, contaminants may be introduced that are toxic by ingestion.
