A thin, even coating should be applied, and after the solvent has evaporated, a second coat is recommended.

Safety and Handling:

    The Material Safety Data Sheet for McLube 1775 should be reviewed prior to using the product. The precautions to be observed are those related to those required for handling the toluene/MEK solvent mixture. Since the solvent mixture is flammable, the product should be kept away from heat, sparks, flames and other ignition sources. Use only with adequate ventilation, especially in enclosed areas. The active ingredients are essentially nontoxic but heating above 550°F may cause formation of potentially harmful substances. Smoking should not be permitted while using McLube 1775, and contamination of tobacco products should be avoided. Safety glasses and gloves are recommended when using this product.
