          protective gear. Will burn if involved in a fire. Flammable liquid
          and vapor.
     Extinguishing Media:
          In case of fire, use water, dry chemical, chemical foam, or
          alcohol-resistant foam. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish
          fire.

                **** SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES ****
