Other Precautions:DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT, WELD, BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL,
    GRIND, OR EXPOSE CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, STATIC
    ELECTRICITY, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION. MATERIAL MAY ATTACK SOME
    FORMS OF PLASTIC, ALU MINUM, RUBBER AND COATINGS.

=============  Exposure Controls/Personal Protection  =============

Respiratory Protection:USE NIOSH/MSHA APPROVED AIR-PURIFYING OR
    SUPPLIED AIR RESPIRATOR AS APPROPRIATE.

Work Hygienic Practices:WASH HANDS BEFORE EATING, DRINKING, SMOKING, OR
    USING TOILET FACILITIES. WASH CONTAMINATED CLOTHING BEFORE REUSE.
Supplemental Safety and Health
AVOID VOMITING IN CASES OF OVEREXPOSURE SINCE ASPIRATION INTO LUNGS IS
    A POSSIBLE HAZARD. PROPERLY GROUND LARGER DRUMS OF MATERIAL TO
    GUARD AGAINST STATIC ELECTRICITY.  PRACTICE GOOD HOUSEKEEPING.  PO
    ST NO-SMOKING SIGNS.  NOTIFY THE NATIONAL RESPONSE CENTER IN CASE
    OF SPILLS.
