LUBRICATION INSTRUCTIONS (Contd)
Cleaning solvent is combustible. Use mechanical ventilation
whenever product is used in a confined space, is heated above
ambient temperatures, or is agitated. DO NOT use or store near
heat, sparks, flame, or other ignition sources. Keep container sealed
when not in use.
Contact with cleaning solvent may cause skin irritation. Use
chemical-resistant gloves. In case of skin contact, remove any
contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly with soap and
water. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Eye contact may
cause irritation, tearing, or blurring of vision. Use face shield or
goggles when eye contact may occur. In case of eye contact, flush
eyes with large amounts of water for at least fifteen (15) minutes or
until irritation subsides. Inhalation may cause irritation to upper
respiratory passages. DO NOT have food or drink in the vicinity.
Failure to comply may result in injury to personnel.
Keep container covers clean and allow no dust, dirt, or other foreign
material to mix with lubricants. Keep all lubrication equipment
clean and ready to use.
1. Keep all external parts of equipment not requiring lubrication free of lubricants.
2. Before lubricating equipment, clean fittings. Use cleaning solvent to wipe all lubrication points free of
dirt and grease and dry before lubricating. After servicing lubrication points, wipe off excess
lubricants to prevent accumulation of foreign matter.
