Primary Routes of Entry:                     X Inhalation                          X Skin                    X Ingestion

Effects of Overexposure:                    Eyes- May cause irritation, with tearing, pain or blurred vision.

Skin- May cause slight irritation with itching, redness or swelling. Repeated exposure and/or prolonged exposure may cause redness or rash.

                                                                Inhalation- May cause irregular heartbeat, dizziness, and loss of consciousness, suffocation, and death .                                                                Ingestion- May cause aspiration which may result in chemial pneumonia.

First Aid:

                                                                Eyes- Immediately flush eyes with water for 15 min. Call a physician.

                                                                Skin- Flush skin with water after contact.  Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
