Special Fire Fighting Procedures:
Wear full protective equipment (Bunker Gear) and a self-contained breathing apparatus
(SCBA).
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:
Extremely flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors may travel long distances along the ground
or floor to an ignition source and flash back. Aerosol container contains flammable material under pressure.
Note: See STABILITY AND REACTIVITY (SECTION 10) for hazardous combustion and thermal decomposition
information.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
If possible, seal leaking container. Place leaking containers in a well-ventilated area, preferably an operating exhaust hood, or if
necessary outdoors on an impermeable surface until appropriate packaging for the leaking container or its contents is available.
Evacuate unprotected and untrained personnel from hazard area. The spill should be cleaned up by qualified personnel. Remove all
ignition sources such as flames, smoking materials, and electrical spark sources. Use only non-sparking tools. Ventilate the area with
fresh air. For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapors, in accordance with
good industrial hygiene practice. Warning! A motor could be an ignition source and could cause flammable gases or vapors in the spill
area to burn or explode. Remember, adding an absorbent material does not remove a toxic, corrosivity or flammability hazard.
6.2. Environmental precautions
For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water. Collect the resulting residue
containing solution. Place in a metal container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Dispose of collected material
as soon as possible.
Clean-up methods
Refer to other sections of this MSDS for information regarding physical and health hazards, respiratory protection, ventilation, and
personal protective equipment. Call 3M-HELPS line (1-800-364-3577) for more information on handling and managing the spill.
Contain spill. Cover spill area with a fire-extinguishing foam. An aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) is recommended. Working
from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material.
Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized
person. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and MSDS. Seal the container.
In the event of a release of this material, the user should determine if the release qualifies as reportable according to
local, state, and federal regulations.

8.1 ENGINEERING CONTROLS
Use with appropriate local exhaust ventilation. Provide appropriate local exhaust ventilation on open containers. Use in an enclosed
process area is recommended. Use with functioning spray booth or local exhaust. Do not use in a confined area or areas with little or
no air movement. Do not remain in area where available oxygen may be reduced. Use general dilution ventilation and/or local
exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below Occupational Exposure Limits and/or control mist, vapor, or spray. If
ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment. Do not use in a confined area or areas with little or no air
movement. If exhaust ventilation is not adequate, use appropriate respiratory protection. Provide ventilation adequate to control vapor
concentrations below recommended exposure limits and/or control spray or mist.
8.2 PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
8.2.1 Eye/Face Protection
Avoid eye contact with vapors, mists, or spray.
The following eye protection(s) are recommended: Safety Glasses with side shields
.
8.2.2 Skin Protection
Avoid skin contact.
Select and use gloves and/or protective clothing to prevent skin contact based on the results of an exposure assessment. Consult with
your glove and/or protective clothing manufacturer for selection of appropriate compatible materials.
Gloves made from the following material(s) are recommended: Nitrile Rubber
Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA)
.
8.2.3 Respiratory Protection
An exposure assessment may be needed to decide if a respirator is required. If a respirator is needed, use respirators as part of a full
respiratory protection program. Based on the results of the exposure assessment, select from the following respirator type(s) to reduce
inhalation exposure:
Half facepiece or full facepiece air-purifying respirator suitable for organic vapors
For questions about suitability for a specific application, consult with your respirator manufacturer.
8.2.4 Prevention of Swallowing
Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water. Not applicable.
