Keep tightly closed in a cool place in a tightly closed container.
Handling
Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues (vapor, liquid, and/or solid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed.
Protection
Wear safety glasses or goggles, resistant gloves, and other appropriate protective equipment essential for your operation. Wear resistant gloves. To prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact, wear impervious clothing.
Respirators
If overexposure has been determined or documented, a NIOSH/MSHA jointly approved air supplied respirator is advised in absence of proper environmental control. OSHA regulations also permit other NIOSH/MSHA respirators under specified conditions.
Small spills/leaks
Small Spill - Absorb liquid on vermiculite, floor absorbent, or other absorbent material and transfer to hood. Large Spill - Persons not wearing protective equipment should be excluded from area of spill until clean-up has been completed. Stop spill at source, dike area of spill to prevent spreading, pump liquid to salvage tank. Remaining liquid may be taken up on sand, clay, earth, floor absorbent, or other absorbent material and shoveled into containers.
