absorbent if needed (sand, earth or vermiculite). Flush residuals to drain
with water for normal biological water treatment. Place collected material
into suitable containers for disposal. Can usually be disposed of my approved
metered release to WWTP or other approved disposal. Observe local, federal
and state disposal regulations. Several washes and/or the use of detergents
may be necessary to completely clean any spills.

get into eyes. Avoid prolonged/repeated skin contact. Do not inhale vapors/mists.
Do not ingest. Store away from sources of ignition. Spilled product creates
very slippery conditions, especially in contact with water. Avoid freezing
which may cause separation and increases in viscosity. Do not store above
85 deg. F for long periods of time. Several washes and/or the use of detergents
may be necessary to completely clean any spills
8. Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection

Skin Protection: Long sleeved clothing, impervious rubber
or neoprene gloves and protective apron.
Eye Protection: Safety glasses or goggles
Other Control Measures:
in accordance with good hygiene practice. Avoid handling which would create
large amounts of mists/vapors. Exxon Medical Research recommended inhalation
TLV for CAS 64742-47-8 of 200 ppm.
