eyes, and clothes; and do not breathe vapors. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.

solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts eyes, immediately flush eyes
with water and get immediate medical attention.
· Adhesives, solvents, and sealing compounds burn easily and give off vapors that are harmful to the skin
and clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire when using these materials, and use
only in well-ventilated areas. If adhesives, solvents, or sealing compounds contact the skin or clothing,
wash immediately with soap and water, and rinse thoroughly. Failure to comply may result in injury or
death to personnel.
