Handling/Disposal
Handling: Do not breathe material. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.Containers of this material may be hazardous when emptied. Since emptied containers retain product residues(vapor and liquid), all hazard precautions given in the data sheet must be observed. All five-gallon pails and larger metal containers should be grounded and/or bonded when material is transferred. Store in cool place, out of hot sun and below 90F. All containers are subject to damage in storage and transit. Damaged containers may start leaking immediately or at a later time. Do not store in areas with widely fluctuating temperatures and do not store where vapors may come in contact with flames, sparks, or heat. Do not store in below ground areas that cannot be adequately ventilated at floor level. Do not use cutting or welding torches near full or empty containers. Closed containers may explode if exposed to extreme heat. Never use internal gas or air pressure to remove contents from a container. Emptied containers may retain product residues (e.g. vapor and liquid or solids); Therefore all precautions given in this sheet must be observed until a container is thoroughly cleaned or destroyed. All containers must be completely drained, (less than one inch of material in the bottom of 55 gallon container) before disposal. If possible emptied container of 55 gallons or more should be given to reconditioner for cleaning
Disposal: Removers cannot be neutralized for disposal into a sewer. Solvents must not be dumped on the ground or be allowed to contaminate ground water, streams, drinking water sources or other bodies of water. Solids collected from stripping should be screened out. Recovered remover, if not contaminated with other solvents or water, may be recycled in the system. Dispose of contaminated remover as spent solvent to a licensed reclaimer. Comply with all local, state, and federal regulations.
