8. Control Measures

Engineering controls: The following exposure control techniques may be used to effectively minimize employee exposure: local exhaust ventilation, enclosed system design, process isolation and remote control in combination with appropriate use of personal protective equipment and prudent work practices. These techniques may not necessarily address all issues pertaining to your operations. We, therefore, recommend that you consult with experts of your choice to determine whether or not your programs are adequate.

9. Spill or Leak and Disposal Procedures

Eliminate all ignition sources.
Large quantities: Enclose with diking material to prevent seepage into natural bodies of water, then consult Custom-Pak Adhesives Inc.
Small quantities: soak up with absorbent material and remove to a chemical disposal area.
