injury or death, keep away from open flame and use in a well-ventilated area. If solvent gets on skin or
clothing, wash immediately with soap and water.
Particles blown by compressed air can be dangerous. Be certain to direct airstream away from user and
other personnel in the area. Compressed air used for cleaning purposes will not exceed 30 psi. Use only
with effective chip-guarding and personnel protective equipment (goggles/shield and gloves).
