                                                            Section IV

                                        FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA

Flash Point : 20 deg F (-7.0 C) Methyl Ethyl Ketone

Flammable Limits:

Upper Explosive Limit (UEL) (%) : 11.4% (Methyl Ethyl Ketone)

Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) (%) : 1.8% (Methyl Ethyl Ketone)

Auto-Ignition Temperature : Not established

Extinguishing Media : Dry Chemical; Carbon Dioxide; Form; Water

Special Fire Fighting Procedures : Full emergency equipment with self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing should be worn by firefighters. During a fire, irritating, highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion.

Unusual Fire / Explosion Hazards : Isolate from heat, electrical equipment, sparks and open flame. Closed container may explode when contaminated with water (CO2 evolved). Solvent vapors may be heavier than air. Stagnant air may cause vapors to build up and travel along the ground to an ignition source which may result in a flash back to the source of the vapors.

                                PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE

Precautions to be taken in handling storage:

Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not store above (115 deg. F ) keep from freezing. Empty containers may contain product residue. Do not cut, puncture or weld containers. All label warning must be observed, until container has been cleaned or reconditioned, or properly disposed of. Mix material well to proper specifications.

Spills: Wear air supplied NIOSH approved respirator for major unventilated release. Cover with absorbent material and keep loosely covered for 48 hours. Clean up residue with solvent.

                                                            Section VIII

                                                    CONTROL MEASURES

Ventilate area; remove spills with inert absorbent.

Waste disposal method: Dispose in chemical disposal area or in a manner that complies with local state and federal regulations, do not incinerate closed containers.

Use solvent resistant protective gloves, chemical splash safety glasses, and protective solvent resistant apron.
