Preparation for Shipment. Preservation and other protective measures taken in the preparation of material and
accompanying tools and equipment for shipment must be sufficient to protect the sweeper against deterioration and
physical damage during shipment.
Dry cleaning solvent P-D-680 is toxic and flammable. Wear protective goggles, face mask, and

flush eyes with water and get medical aid immediately.
