Product/Chemical Name:
General Use: Lubricating Grease w/ Fluorocarbon Polymer additive.

Manufacturer: ULTRA SAFETY SYSTEMS, Inc. 1601 Hill Avenue
Mangonia Park, Florida 33407
(561) 845-1086 / Fax:(561) 844-8566

Section 2 - Composition / Information on Ingredients
Ingredient Name CAS Number % wt
Polytetrafluoroethylene, PTFE*
Product formulation is Proprietary
NO ingredients are known to be hazardous under normal usage. 9002-84-0 38
*Not a hazardous material under normal usage, but PTFE can produce toxic fumes if pyrolized. Decomposition is initiated above 300°C.

Section 3 - Hazards Identification
*****Emergency Overview*****

Summary of risks: There is no experience with overexposure. Prolonged or repeated skin or eye contact may causeirritation. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), when thermally decomposed, may cause polymer fume fever and flu-likesymptoms. Inhalation of material at high temperatures (over 250°C) must be avoided. Exercise ordinary, common-sensemeasures of industrial hygiene when using this product.
Potential Health Effects HMIS

H 1 F 0 R 0 PPE� �Sec. 8

Primary Entry Routes: Skin, eyes, inhalation at high temperatures (over 250°C).
Target Organs: Skin, eyes, respiratory passages at high temperatures (over 250°C).
Acute Effects: Possible skin and eye irritation. Polymer fume fever and flu-like symptoms at temperatures above 250°C due to PTFE decomposition.
Carcinogenicity: IARC, NTP, and OSHA do not list ULTRA GEL - 02 or its ingredients as carcinogens.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Long-Term Exposure: None known.
Chronic Effects: None known.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Inhalation: Move to fresh air and refer to a physician for treatment
Eye Contact: Wash thoroughly; contact physician if irritation persists.
Skin Contact: Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
Ingestion: Not expected to be a problem. However, if ingested, immediately give 1 to 2 glasses of water and call a physician.
Do not induce vomiting.
After first aid, get appropriate in-plant, paramedic, or community medical support.
Special Precautions/Procedures: Avoid contamination of cigarettes or other tobacco products.

Section 5- Fire-Fighting Measures
Flash Point: None, non-flammable
Flash Point Method: COC
Extinguishing Media: C02, Foam, Dry Chemical, Water Spray
Unusual Fire or Explosion Hazards: None NFPA

MSDS GEL-02 ULTRA GEL-02 Revision: 1
Hazardous Combustion Products: Carbonyl Fluoride, Hydrofluoric Acid gas, Perfluorocarbon Olefins, Carbon Monoxide and small amounts of other toxic fumes.

Fire-Fighting Instructions: Avoid smoke inhalation. Water or foam may cause frothing. Do not release runoff from fire control methods to sewers or waterways.

Fire-Fighting Equipment: Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full-face piece operated in pressure-demand or positive-pressure mode.

Section 6- Accidental Release Measures

Spill / Leak Procedures: Wipe or scrape up grease spillage and place it in a container for disposal.

Containment: Do not release into sewers or waterways.
Cleanup: Wash walking surfaces thoroughly with detergent and water to reduce slipping hazard.

Regulatory Requirements: Follow applicable OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.120). Consult applicable state and local regulations.

Section 7- Handling and Storage
Handling Precautions: Exercise ordinary care in handling industrial lubricants. No special handling precautions are necessary. Avoid contamination of cigarettes or other tobacco products. Wash hands thoroughly before eating or smoking. Users should be alert to the possibility that very small percentages of the population may display unexpected allergic reactions to otherwise innocuous industrial lubricants and raw materials.

Storage Requirements: Do not store in open or unlabeled containers. Store away from strong oxidizing agents or combustible material.

Regulatory Requirements: None

Section 8- Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Ventilation: No special requirements under ordinary conditions of use with adequate ventilation.

Respiratory Protection: Not required unless oil mist, smoke or vapors are generated at high temperatures.

Protective Clothing/Equipment:
Wear chemically protective gloves, and aprons to prevent prolonged or repeated skin contact. Wear protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye- and face-protection regulations (29 CFR 1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protective devices. Appropriate eye protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with contact lenses.

Safety Stations: Make emergency eyewash stations, safety/quick-drench showers, and washing facilities available in work area

Contaminated Equipment: Separate contaminated work clothes from street clothes. Launder before reuse. Remove this material from your shoes and clean personal protective equipment.

Comments: Never eat, drink, or smoke in work areas. Practice good personal hygiene after using this material, especially before eating, drinking, smoking, using the toilet, or applying cosmetics.

Section 10 - Stability and Reactivity
Stability: ULTRA GEL - 02 is stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.

Polymerization: Hazardous polymerization cannot occur.

Chemical Incompatibilities: Strong oxidizing materials
Conditions to Avoid: Pyrolysis

Hazardous Decomposition Products: Thermal oxidative decomposition of ULTRA GEL - 02 can produce carbon monoxide as well as small amounts of other toxic fumes.

Section 11- Toxicological Information
Toxicity Data: None; not considered to be a hazardous material.

Section 12- Ecological Information
Environmental Fate and Effects: No data has been established for this product.

Section 13- Disposal Considerations
Disposal: Contact a licensed waste disposal contractor for detailed recommendations.
Disposal Regulatory Requirements: Many states classify waste lubricants as �hazardous�, which means disposal only by a licensed firm. Follow applicable Federal, state, and local regulations.
