                     SECTION 7- SPILL AND DISPOSAL PROCEDURE 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN THE EVENT OF A SPILL OR DISCHARGE

SMALL SPILLS COLLECT SPILLS INTO A CLEAN WASTE CONTAINER. ABSORB THE 
REMAINING PRODUCT WITH EARTH OR SAND AND DISPOSE ACCORDING TO LOCAL LAWS. 
CLEAN ANY REMAINING SLIPPERY SURFACES WITH XENTEX711 AND PRESSURE STEAM 
CLEANING. FOR LARGE SPILLS PROVIDE DIKING FOR CONTAINMENT, IMPLEMENT CLEANUP 
PROCEDURES, AND IF IN PUBLIC AREA KEEP PUBLIC AWAY AND ADVISE AUTHORITIES. 
PREVENT LIQUID FROM ENTERING SEWER, WATERCOURSES, OR LOW AREAS. 

WATER SPILL: FOR LARGE SPILLS, REMOVE FROM SURFACE BY SKIMMING. INFORM ENVIRON-
             MENTAL AUTHORITIES.

DISPOSAL PROCEDURE

DISPOSE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL ENVIRONMENT-
AL REGULATIONS.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                     SECTION 8 - INDUSTRIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

VENTILATION:USE ADEQUATE GENERAL VENTILATION TO KEEP MIST LEVELS TO MINIMUM IN
            THE CONFINED SPACE AIR.
 
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION : IF AIRBORNE CONCENTRATION IS HIGH, A NIOSH / MSHA
                         APPROVED MIST RESPIRATOR IS RECOMMENDED. IF CONCENTRA-
                         TION EXCEEDS CAPACITY OF RESPIRATOR, A SELF-CONTAINED
                         BREATHING APPARATUS IS ADVISED.

EYE / SKIN PROTECTION : SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE SHIELDS, LONG SLEEVES, AND
                        RUBBER GLOVES.

OTHERS : EYE WASH FOUNTAIN AND SHOWER IN THE AREA OF WORK IS RECOMMENDED.
