It's a long, *long* shot, but you might try calling Leica. AO was absorbed
by Leica several years ago, back in the days before MSDS sheets were such a big
deal, so info may be limited or nonexistent.
The number is 1-800-248-0123. Ask for Don Birgerson. I don't think I've
been able to stump Don yet, after all these years!
