Prolonged or repeated contact with lubricating oil may irritate the eyes and
skin. Long term use without hand protection may cause dermatitis. Breathing
mists may cause respiratory irritation. If there is any prolonged contact with
skin, wash area with soap and water. Remove saturated clothing. If solution
contacts eyes, flush eyes with water immediately. If oil is swallowed, do not
try to vomit; aspiration may damage lungs. Get immediate medical attention.
When handling liquid, wear rubber gloves and chemical splash proof
goggles. Wear NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator if mists exceed
established exposure limits.
Do not clean parts with chlorinated solvents, such as freon, perchloroethylene,
trichloroethane, carbon tetrachloride, etc. Do not use any type of silicone grease
on any components.
