Explosive Limits: LEL:  No data.                                    UEL:  No data.
Autoignition Pt: N.A.
Fire Fighting Instructions
Fight fire from upwind. As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent and full protective gear. Do not use water. Handle as an oil fire, class B fire procedures. Remove unignited product from fire area if possible. Dike fire control waters to prevent their entry into sewers or other water courses.
Flammable Properties and Hazards
Combustible Liquid. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame. Guard against spontaneous combustion or improperly discarded oily rags. Overheated containers are an explosion hazard. Vapors which form inside empty containers may also present an explosion hazard during a fire. Equipment used to fight pesticide fires may require decontamination before reuse.
Extinguishing Media
Foam, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, or halogenated agents.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media
No data available.

SECTION 6. Accidental Release Measures
EQUI-SPOT SPOT-ON FLY CONTROL FOR HORSES

Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Released Or Spilled
Small Spills: Absorb with inert absorbent. Wash contaminated area with detergent and water solution. Discard in trash.
Large Spills (Bulk product only): Wear OSHA approved clean protective clothing, rubber gloves, and goggles. If vapor concentration becomes high, use self contained air mask (NIOSH approved). No smoking. Eliminate any source of ignition. Minimize inhalation. Recover free liquid by adding absorbent (earth, sawdust, kitty litter, etc.) to spill area. Shovel waste into a metal drum. Avoid contact with skin. Keep product out of sewers and water courses by diking or impounding. Advise authorities if product has entered or may enter sewers, watercourses or extensive land areas. CAUTION: SLIPPERY ON FLOOR. Following clean up of spilled liquid, wash contaminated area with detergent and water solution. Collect wash water in containers for disposal.

SECTION 7. Handling and Storage
EQUI-SPOT SPOT-ON FLY CONTROL FOR HORSES

Precautions To Be Taken in Handling
No data available.
Precautions To Be Taken in Storing
COMBUSTIBLE. DO NOT USE OR STORE NEAR HEAT OR OPEN FLAMES
Other Precautions
Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Causes moderate eye irritation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear goggles, face shield or safety glasses. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.

SECTION 8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
EQUI-SPOT SPOT-ON FLY CONTROL FOR HORSES

Respiratory Equipment (Specify Type)
For fires, use self-contained breathing apparatus only. For moderate vapor or liquid mist exposure, use half mask or full face piece respirators which have NIOSH/MSHA approval for pesticides.
Eye Protection
Where potential for splashing exists, or contact with spray or mist is likely, protective goggles and face shield should be worn. A source of clean water for flushing should be nearby (i.e., emergency eye wash and shower stations).
Protective Gloves
Neoprene gloves for extended exposure, as in manufacturing or other large quantity work.
Other Protective Clothing
Long sleeved coveralls or uniform, cap, rubber boots, rubber or plastic apron may be needed during formulation, packaging, or other handling of large amounts or product.
Engineering Controls (Ventilation etc.)
Local exhaust should be sufficient. If user operations generate fumes or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Work/Hygienic/Maintenance Practices
Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, or using tobacco. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
