Section 3 Hazard Identification (Also see section 11)
Keep away from heat and ignition sources. Harmful if swallowed. Avoid breathing vapors. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothes. Wash thoroughly after handling. Keep container closed. 
Section 4 First Aid Measures
Keep away from heat and ignition sources. Harmful if swallowed. Avoid breathing vapors. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothes. Wash thoroughly after handling. Keep container closed.

FIRST AID: SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention

EYES: Wash eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lids occasionally. Seek Medical Aid. INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen

INGESTION: If swallowed, induce vomiting immediately after giving two glasses of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconcious person.
Section 5 Fire Fighting Measures
Fire Extinguisher Type:Carbon Dioxide, dry chemical powder or appropriate foam
Fire/Explosion Hazards:Vapors can form explosive mixtures at temperatures at or above the flashpoint. Vapor may travel to source of ignition and flash back.
Fire Fighting Procedure:Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and clothing.
Section 6 Accidental Release Measures
Eliminate Ignition Sources. Absorb with inert material. Place in container. Vent area and wash site.
Section 7 Handling and Storage
Keep away from heat and flame. Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Use with adequate ventilation.
