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

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

Accidental release

: Minor spills do not normally need any special cleanup measures. In the event of a major spill,

prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses. As a minimum, wear overalls, goggles and gloves. Suitable

materials for protective clothing include rubber, PVC. Stop leak if safe to do so, and contain spill. Absorb onto sand,

vermiculite or other suitable absorbent material. If spill is too large or if absorbent material is not available, try to

create a dike to stop material spreading or going into drains or waterways. Sweep up and shovel or collect

recoverable product into labelled containers for recycling or salvage, and dispose of promptly. After spills, wash area

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

Full details regarding disposal of used containers, spillage and unused material may be found on the label. If there is

any conflict between this MSDS and the label, instructions on the label prevail. Ensure legality of disposal by

consulting regulations prior to disposal. Thoroughly launder protective clothing before storage or re-use. Advise

laundry of nature of contamination when sending contaminated clothing to laundry.
