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.

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.

Inhalation:

If irritation occurs, contact a Poisons Information Centre, or call a doctor. Remove source of

contamination or move victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, oxygen may be beneficial if administered by trained

personnel, preferably on a doctor's advice. In severe cases, symptoms of pulmonary oedema can be delayed up to 48

hours after exposure.

Skin Contact:

Quickly and gently brush away excess solids. Wash gently and thoroughly with warm water (use non-

abrasive soap if necessary) for 10-20 minutes 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. If irritation persists, repeat flushing and seek medical attention.

Eye Contact:

Quickly and gently brush particles from eyes. Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with

lukewarm, gently flowing water for 20 minutes or until the product is removed, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Take

care not to rinse contaminated water into the unaffected eye or onto the face. Obtain medical attention immediately.

Take special care if exposed person is wearing contact lenses.

Ingestion:

If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Wash mouth with water and contact a Poisons Information

Centre, or call a doctor.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures

Fire and Explosion Hazards

: There is a moderate risk of an explosion from this product if commercial quantities

are involved in a fire. Firefighters should take care and appropriate precautions. The presence of this product in a fire

is likely to intensify the fire due to its oxidising properties.

Fire decomposition products from this product may be toxic if inhaled. Take appropriate protective measures.

Extinguishing Media

: Not Combustible. Use extinguishing media suited to burning materials. Coarse water spray

is the preferred medium for large fires. Try to contain spills, minimise spillage entering drains or water courses.

Fire Fighting

: If a significant quantity of this product is involved in a fire, call the fire brigade. There is a danger of a

violent reaction or explosion if significant quantities of this product are involved in a fire. Recommended personal

protective equipment is liquid-tight chemical protective clothing and breathing apparatus.
