--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Appearance & Odor: White, waxy solid Mild Hydrocarbon Odor
Health Hazards: Contact with hot material will cause thermal burns.
Physical Hazards: No known physical hazards.
NFPA Rating (Health, Fire, Reactivity): 0, 1, 0
Hazard Rating:Least - 0     Slight - 1     Moderate - 2     High - 3    
Extreme - 4

Inhalation:
Molten wax fumes may cause respiratory irritation.

Eye Irritation:
Molten wax fumes may be slightly irritating to eyes.  Molten wax will cause 
burns on contact with eyes.  Contact with hot material can cause thermal burns 
which may result in permanent damage or blindness.

Skin Contact:
Contact with hot material can cause thermal burns which may result in 
permanent damage.

Ingestion:
Generally considered to have a low order of acute oral toxicity.

Other Health Effects:
This product and its components are not classified as carcinogens by the 
International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National toxicology 
Program (NTP), or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Signs and Symptoms:
Irritation as noted above.

Aggravated Medical Conditions:
None identified.

For additional health information, refer to section 11.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SECTION 4	FIRST AID MEASURES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inhalation:
Remove victim to fresh air and provide oxygen if breathing is difficult.  Get 
medical attention.

Skin:
If hot wax strikes the skin, drench or immerse the area in water to assist 
cooling.  If available, apply iced water or ice packs to the burned area.  Do 
not use iced water or cold packs if burned area covers more than 10% of the 
body, as this may contribute to shock.  Do not try to remove wax from a burn 
after it has cooled.  Seek Medical attention.  If cool wax contacts skin, wash 
the area with warm soapy water.  DO NOT attempt to remove anything from the 
burn area or apply burn creams or ointments.  Cover the burn area loosely with 
a sterile dressing, if available.  Transport to nearest medical facility for 
additional treatment.

Eye:
Cool the exposed area by flushing with large amounts of water.  Flush with 
water for at least 15 minutes.  If eye is burned or irritation occurs, get 
medical attention.  Transport to nearest medical facility for additional 
treatment.

Ingestion:
In general no treatment is necessary unless large quantities are swallowed, 
however, get medical advice.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SECTION 5	FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flash Point [Method]:     405 ºF/207.22 ºC

Extinguishing Media:
Material will float and can be re-ignited on surface of water.  Use water fog, 
'alcohol foam', dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames.  Do 
not use a direct stream of water.

Fire Fighting Instructions:
Material will not burn unless preheated.  Clear fire area of all non-emergency 
personnel.  Only enter confined fire space with full gear, including a 
positive pressure, NIOSH-approved, self-contained breathing apparatus.  Cool 
surrounding equipment, fire-exposed containers and structures with water.  
Container areas exposed to direct flame contact should be cooled with large 
quantities of water (500 gallons water per minute flame impingement exposure) 
to prevent weakening of container structure.


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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Protective Measures:
May burn although not readily ignitable.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment when cleaning up spills.  Refer 
to Section 8.

Spill Management:
May burn although not readily ignitable.  Use cautious judgement when cleaning 
up large molten spills.
LARGE MOLTEN SPILL:  Wear respirator and protective clothing as appropriate.  
Shut off source of leak if safe to do so.  Dike and contain.  Allow product to 
cool and remove as a solid.
SMALL MOLTEN SPILL:  Allow product to cool and remove as a solid.  Shut off 
source of leak if safe to do so.

Reporting:
CERCLA: Product is covered by EPA's Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) petroleum exclusion.  Releases to air, 
land, or water are not reportable under CERCLA (Superfund).

CWA: This product is an oil as defined under Section 311 of EPA's Clean Water 
Act (CWA). Spills into or leading to surface waters that cause a sheen must be 
reported to the National Response Center, 1-800-424-8802.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SECTION 7	HANDLING AND STORAGE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Precautionary Measures:
Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.  Avoid heat, open flames, 
including pilot lights, and strong oxidizing agents.  Use explosion-proof 
ventilation to prevent vapor accumulation.  Ground all handling equipment to 
prevent sparking.  Wash thoroughly after handling.

Handling:
Wash with soap and water before eating, drinking, smoking, applying cosmetics, 
or using toilet.  Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.  Properly 
dispose of contaminated leather articles such as shoes or belts that cannot be 
decontaminated.  Contaminated leather articles including shoes cannot be 
decontaminated and should be destroyed to prevent reuse.

Storage:
If wax is solid, store in a cool dry place with adequate ventilation.  If wax 
is molten, store at a temperature not more than 10 deg. above melting point 
and with a nitrogen blanket.  Keep away from open flames and high temperatures.

Container Warnings:
Keep containers closed when not in use.  Containers, even those that have been 
emptied, can contain explosive vapors.  Do not cut, drill, grind, weld or 
perform similar operations on or near containers.

PARAFFIN WAX FUME   ACGIH TLV  TWA: 2 mg/m3      
PARAFFIN WAX FUME   OSHA PEL - 1989(revoked)  TWA: 2 mg/m3      
 

EXPOSURE CONTROLS
Adequate ventilation to control airborne concentrations below the exposure 
guidelines/limits.

PERSONAL PROTECTION
Personal protective equipment (PPE) selections vary based on potential 
exposure conditions such as handling practices, concentration and ventilation. 
 Information on the selection of eye, skin and respiratory protection for use 
with this material is provided below.

Eye Protection:
Chemical Goggles and Face Shield, or Safety glasses with side shields

Skin Protection:
Use protective clothing which is chemically resistant to this material.  
Selection of protective clothing depends on potential exposure conditions and 
may include gloves, boots, suits and other items.  The selection(s) should 
take into account such factors as job task, type of exposure and durability 
requirements.

Published literature, test data and/or glove and clothing manufacturers 
indicate the best protection is provided by:
Clothing and gloves to protect against hot material.

Respiratory Protection:
If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations to a level 
which is adequate to protect worker health, an approved respirator must be 
worn.  Respirator selection, use and maintenance should be in accordance with 
the requirements of the OSHA Respiratory Protection Standard, 29 CFR 1910.134.

Types of respirator(s) to be considered in the selection process include:
For Vapors:  Air Purifying, R or P style  prefilter & organic cartridge,  
NIOSH approved respirator.  Self-contained breathing apparatus.
