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

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

LAND SPILL: ELIMINATE SOURCES OF IGNITION. PREVENT ADDITIONAL DISCHARGE OF
MATERIAL. CONTAIN SPILL. FOR 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 XENTEX 711 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: ELIMINATE SOURCES OF IGNITION. WARN OCCUPANTS AND SHIPPING IN
SURROUNDING AND DOWNWIND AREAS OF FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD AND REQUEST
ALL TO STAY CLEAR. REMOVE FROM SURFACE BY SKIMMING OR WITH SUITABLE
ABSORBENTS. IF ALLOWED BY LOCAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL AUTHORITIES, SINKING
AND/ OR SUITABLE DISPERSANTS MAY BE USED IN NON-CONFINED WATERS. 

DISPOSAL PROCEDURE

DISPOSE IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL
ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS. 

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

VENTILATION :  USE ADEQUATE GENERAL OR LOCAL EXHAUST VENTILATION TO KEEP

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION : IF AIRBORNE CONCENTRATION EXCEEDS 300 PPM, 
             NIOSH / MSHA APPROVED MIST/VAPOR RESPIRATOR IS RECOMMENDED. IF
             CONCENTRATION 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. 
           
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
SECTION 9 - STORAGE AND HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
STORAGE :  STORE IN TIGHTLY CLOSED CONTAINER IN COOL , DRY, AND WELL
           VENTILATED PLACE. DO NOT STORE IN VICINITY OF INCOMPATIBLE 
           MATERIALS SUCH AS LIQUID CHLORINE, AND OXYGEN. PROPERLY GROUND 
           FOR ELECTROSTATIC ACCUMULATION HAZARD.

HANDLING : AVOID PRODUCING CHEMICAL MIST OR VAPOR. DO NOT GET IN EYES, ON 
SKIN, OR ON
           CLOTHING. WASH THOROUGHLY WITH SOAP AND WATER AFTER HANDLING.
