* This figure is “equivalentactivity”, although the ingredient is physically present at only 20%

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

hazardousingredients arealso possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentrationof aparticular substance when calculatedover a normal 8 hourworking dayfor a 5

dayworkingweek. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) isan exposure value thatshould notbe exceeded for morethan 15 minutes andshould

not be repeated for more than 4 times per day. There should be atleast 60 minutes between successive exposures atthe STEL. The term "peak "is

used when theTWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should neverbe exceeded, even briefly.
