This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non hazardous

ingredients are also possible.

The SWA TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a

5 day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no longer than

15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL.

The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

by this product. The number is 13 11 26 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is

available at all times. Have this MSDS with you when you call.

or until product is removed. Under running water, remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g.

watchbands and belts) and completely decontaminate them before reuse or discard.

Eye Contact:

No effects expected. If irritation does occur, flush contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing

water for 5 minutes or until the product is removed. Obtain medical advice if irritation becomes painful or lasts more than

a few minutes. Take special care if exposed person is wearing contact lenses.
