First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary. Call a physician immediately.

Skin contact: Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite. In case of contact with liquid, thaw frosted parts with water, then remove clothing carefully. Wash with plenty of water. Consult a physician. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Eye contact: Remove contact lenses. Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

Ingestion: As this product is a gas, refer to the inhalation section. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician immediately.

Notes to physician: Do not give adrenaline or similar drugs.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Flammable. In case of fire, allow gas to burn if flow cannot be shut off immediately. Apply water from a safe distance to cool container and protect surrounding area.

Specific hazards during fire fighting: Possibility of generating hazardous reactions during a fire due to the presence of F groups. Heating will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting and subsequent explosion. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Immediately contact emergency personnel. Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away. Ensure adequate ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. The product evaporates readily.

Handling and storage

Handling: Open drum carefully as contents may be under pressure. The product should only be used in areas from which all naked lights and other sources of ignition have been excluded. Pressurized container. Protect fromsunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 °C. Do not pierce or burn, even after use. Do not spray on z nzked flame or any incandescent material. Do not use in areas without adequate ventillation. Contaninated equiptment (brushes, rags) must be cleaned immediately with water.

Storage: Store in original container. Keep away from direct sunlight. Keep containers tightly closed in cool, well-ventilated place
