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

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The 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 should not be exceeded for more than 15 minutes and should

not be repeated for 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.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

General Information:

You should call The Poisons Information Centre if you feel that you may have been poisoned, burned or irritated by

this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is available at all

times. Have this MSDS with you when you call.

Self Injection: Accidental self injection may lead to an inflammatory response. Medical advice should be sought on

the management of deep injections, particularly those near a joint or associated with bruising. If possible the

application of gentle squeezing pressure with absorbent material (e.g. facial tissues) at the injection site will swab up

unabsorbed vaccine. Strong squeezing of the site should be avoided. The damaged area should be thoroughly

cleansed and a topical antiseptic applied.

AS INDICATED ABOVE, IF INJECTED INTO A PREGNANT WOMAN, SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ADVICE.

or waterways. Sweep up and shovel or collect recoverable product into labelled containers for recycling or salvage,

and dispose of promptly. Recycle containers wherever possible after careful cleaning. After spills, wash area

preventing runoff from entering drains. If a significant quantity of material enters drains, advise emergency services.
