Solvents can burn easily, give off harmful vapors, and are harmful to skin and clothing. To avoid injury
or death, keep away from open flame and use in 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 yourself
and other personnel in the area. Compressed air used for cleaning will not exceed 30 psi (207 kPa). Use
only with effective chip-guarding and personal protective equipment (goggles/shield and gloves).
Clean dirt and other foreign materials from flexible shafts. Thoroughly wipe core tips with lint-free rags saturated with
dry-cleaning solvent. Wash rubber tubing with clean water; rinse and dry.
