Dry cleaning solvent P-D-680 is potentially dangerous.
Avoid repeated and prolonged breathing of vapors and skin
contact with the liquid. Do not use near open flame, arcing
equipment or other ignition sources. Always wear eye
protection and protective clothing. The flash point of P-D-
680 is 100 to 138 deg. F (38 to 59 deg. C).
Death or serious injury could occur if compressed air is
directed against the skin. Do not use compressed air for
cleaning or drying unless the pressure is/has been reduced
to 30 psi (2.11 kg/cm2) or less. When working with
compressed air, always use chip guards, eye protection, and
other personal protective equipment.
Do not use compressed air on bearings. Allow bearings to air dry. Compressed air
