Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
General Information:
Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Sweep up or absorb material, then place into a suitable clean, dry, closed container for disposal.
Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation. Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.,) Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Do not ingest or inhale. Keep from contact with clothing and other combustible materials. Discard contaminated shoes. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection
Engineering Controls:
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
Exposure Limits:
