7. Handling and Storage

Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Store in cool dry place away from incompatible substances. Keep container closed when not in use. Store at moderate temperatures, do not freeze. Avoid contact with liquid, mists or dried residues. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flame. Follow disposal instructions for hazardous chemical waste. Do not ingest or inhale.
