HAZARDOUS COMBUSTIBLE OR DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:

Product consists of a two phase mixture of the two components stabilized by tightly packed fiber wool to give an essentially non-spillable mass.  The components are contained in a metal can with a metal lid. The mass is not ignitable at room temperature.  To ignite, apply flame directly to glass fibers.  Can produce carbon monoxide and some irritants under some burning conditions. Glass fibers caused cancer in animals through unnatural routes of exposure (surgical implantation), but it is not associated with cancer by inhalation. Use of glass fibers has not been shown to cause cancer in humans. If ingestion of glass fibers occur, observe individual for several days to ensure that intestinal blockage does not occur. It is not recommended to induce vomiting if ingested.
