Inhalation: Non-hazardous in case of inhalation, may be a mild irritant.
Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Eyes: Remove contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid if irritation occurs.
Skin: Wash skin with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear. Support breathing as needed.
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. During a fire, irritating and toxic gases may be
generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam.

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. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Remove all sources of ignition.
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Handling: Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid breathing spray or mist.
Storage: Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.

Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans: Potential Health Effects: Skin: This product is not expected to cause any skin irritation upon direct single or repeated and prolonged contact. However,
similar chemical compositon products applied to the skin of lab animals resulted in minimal to slight dermal irritation. Eyes: May cause mild (minimal) eye irritation. Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation with coughing and shortness of breath. This product has a low vapor pressure and is not expected to present an inhalation hazard at ambient conditions. Caution should be taken to prevent aerosolization or misting. If aspiration occurs, it may lead to chemical pneumonitis which is characterized by pulmonary edema and hemorrhage and may be fatal. Signs of lung involvement include increased respiratory rate, increased heart rate, and bluish discoloration of the skin. Coughing, choking and gagging are often noted at the time of aspiration Ingestion: Ingestion is relatively non-toxic unless aspiration occurs. It has laxative properties and may cause gastrointestinal tract discomfort, abdominal cramps, vomiting and diarrhea. Exposure to a large single dose, or repeated small doses by inhalation, aspiration or ingestion leading to aspiration can lead to lipid pneumonia or lipid granuloma. These are low-grade, chronic localized tissue reactions which are not fatal.
