                 **** SECTION 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION ****

                              EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Appearance:  colourless. Flash Point: 40.6 deg C.
Danger! Flammable liquid. Strong oxidizer. Contact with other
material may cause a fire. Harmful if inhaled. Corrosive. May become
violently reactive or explosive exposed to heat, shock or friction.
May be harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin.
Target Organs: None.

Potential Health Effects
    Eye:
         Causes eye irritation and burns.  Vapor is highly irritating to the
         eyes.
    Skin:
         Causes severe skin irritation and burns. May be harmful if absorbed
         through the skin.
    Ingestion:
         May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea,
         vomiting and possible burns. May be harmful if swallowed.
    Inhalation:
         May cause burns to the respiratory tract. Vapors may cause dizziness
         or suffocation. Vapor or mist is irritating to the mucous membranes
         and upper respiratory tract.
    Chronic:
         Not available.

                   **** SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES ****

    Eyes:
         Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT allow victim to rub or keep eyes
         closed. Extensive irrigation is required (at least 30 minutes).
    Skin:
         Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of
         soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated
         clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Discard contaminated
         clothing in a manner which limits further exposure.
    Ingestion:
         Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical
         aid immediately. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert,
         rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
    Inhalation:
         Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air
         immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If
         breathing is difficult, give oxygen. DO NOT use mouth-to-mouth
         respiration.
    Notes to Physician:
         Treat symptomatically and supportively.

                 **** SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES ****

    General Information:
         As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in
         pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full
         protective gear. Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash
         back. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be
         generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. This material is an
         explosion hazard when exposed to heat, mechanical shock, or friction.
         Flammable Liquid. Vapors may be heavier than air.  They can spread
         along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
    Extinguishing Media:
         Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. Use flooding
         quantities of water.

               **** SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES ****

    General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
                         in Section 8.
    Spills/Leaks:
         Absorb spill with inert material, (e.g., dry sand or earth), then
         place into a chemical waste container. Clean up spills immediately,
         observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Remove
         all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation.

                  **** SECTION 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE ****

    Handling:
         Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and
         wash before reuse. Use only in a well ventilated area. Material is
         heat, shock and/or friction sensitive. Use care in handling and
         storage. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Do
         not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty containers retain
         product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Do not
         ingest or inhale. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder,
         drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open
         flames.
    Storage:
         Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep away from sources of
         ignition. Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a cool,
         dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.

         **** SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION ****

    Engineering Controls:
         Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
