For more specific information, refer to Exposure Controls and Personal Protection in Section 8 of this MSDS. Inhalation Eye Contact Skin Contact Ingestion General Advice If breathing is difficult, remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists. Wash off with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists. It swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this container or label. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show label when possible). 5. Fire Fighting Measures Extinguishing Media Suitable extinguishing Media Protection of firefighters Water, Alcohol foam, polymer foam, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide Wear full protective clothing, including helmet, SCBA. If tank, rail car, or tank truck is involved in a fire. Isolate for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions. Always stay away from tanks engulfed in flame. Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or any discoloration of tanks due to fire. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk. Do not scatter spilled material with high pressure water streams. Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. 6. Accidental Release Measures Personal precautions Environmental precautions Keep people away from upwind of spill/leak. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Stay upwind, keep out of low areas. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not contaminate water. Methods for containment Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area.) Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Use water spray to reduce vapors or divert vapor cloud drift. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. Methods for cleaning up Should not be released into the environment. Large Spills: Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal. Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal. After removal flush contaminated area thoroughly with water. Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (cloth, fleece). Clean contaminated surface thoroughly. Never return spills in original containers 7. Handling and Storage Handling Do not breathe dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid release to the environment. Wash thoroughly after handling. Performance Chemical Company Product: Pro-Flow-501 Current Issue Date: May 29, 2013 Storage Page 3 of 5 Store in a closed container away from incompatible materials. Store in accordance with local/regional/national/international regulation. 8. Exposure Controls and Personal Protection Engineering Controls Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing. Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves. General Hygiene considerations When using do not smoke. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. 9.

Includes flammable liquids with flash points below 73 F and boiling points above 100 F. as well as liquids with flash points between 73 F and 100 F. (Classes IB & IC) 4 Severe Hazard Flammable gases, or very volatile flammable liquids with flash points below 73 F, and boiling points below 100 F. Materials may ignite spontaneously with air. (Class IA) HMIS® III - PHYSICAL HAZARD RATINGS 0 Minimal Hazard Materials that are normally stable, even under fire conditions, and will NOT react with water, polymerize, decompose, condense, or self-react. Non-Explosives. 1 Slight Hazard Materials that are normally stable but can become unstable (self-react) at high temperatures and pressures. Materials may react non-violently with water or undergo hazardous polymerization in the absence of inhibitors. 2 Moderate Hazard Materials that are unstable and may undergo violent chemical changes at normal temperature and pressure with low risk for explosion. Materials may react violently with water or form peroxides upon exposure to air. 3 Serious Hazard Materials that may form explosive mixtures with water and are capable of detonation or explosive reaction in the presence of a strong initiating source. Materials may polymerize, decompose, self-react, or undergo other chemical change at normal temperature and pressure with moderate risk of explosion. 4 Severe Hazard Materials that are readily capable of explosive water reaction, detonation or explosive decomposition, polymerization, or self-reaction at normal temperature and pressure.
