First-aid measures

General:
Take care of your own personal safety. Move out of dangerous area. Take
off all contaminated clothing immediately. Keep patient warm and at rest.
Do not leave victims unattended.

Inhalation: Move victims into fresh air. Place person on side in stable position if
unconscious.
In case of difficulties in breathing, supply oxygen.Employ artificial
respiration if breathing ceases.Call a physician immediately.
Skin Contact: In the event of frostbite, rinse copiously with water. Do not remove clothing
that adheres due to freezing. Cover with sterile dressing and seek medical
advice.
Eye contact: Immediately rinse the affected eye carefully with water of regular
temperature. Following eye contact with liquefied gas: Do not force eyelids
open. Consult an eye doctor (ophthalmologist).
Ingestion: Ingestion by swallowing is not considered a possible mode of exposure.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Frostbite injuries Drowsiness

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Hazards: Oxygen-displacing gas. Liquefied gas may cause severe frostbite damage and eye damage.
Treatment: No specific antidote known. cardio-vascular monitoring. Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media, Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
high volume water jet

Special hazards arisingfrom the substance or
mixture:
In case of fire cool endangered containers with water. Closed container
may rupture if strongly heated. Heavier than air vapour. Formation of
flammable or explosive vapour/air mixtures possible. Keep all ignition
sources out of area Flash back possible over considerable distance.

Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures: No data available.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
In the case of respirable dust and/or fumes, use self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Wear personal protective equipment; Avoid contact with skin
and eyes. Do not inhale vapours / aerosols. Keep away from sources of
ignition - No smoking. Heavier than air vapour. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Ensure that spaces including floor areas are well ventilated.

Environmental Precautions:
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, drainage systems, stretches of
water, soil. Avoid penetration into drainage system or in rooms situated at a
lower level because of danger of explosion. Issue an immediate alarm
report to the company environmental protection department if the product
unintentionally leaves the production area.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
under the provision of special precautionary measures Confine and allow to evaporate.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Wear personal protective equipment; If necessary, full body
protection suit (coverall). Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not inhale
vapours / aerosols. Provide good ventilation or extraction. Ensure that
spaces including floor areas are well ventilated. Vapours are heavier than
air and may spread along floors. Keep away from sources of ignition - No
smoking. Do not empty into drains. If positive displacement pumps are
used, these must be fitted with non-integral pressure relief valve. Observe
special instructions applicable to compressed gases.

Conditions for safe storage,including any incompatibilities:
Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition
sources. No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static
discharge. Explosion protection equipment required. Keep containers tightly
closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep away from direct sunlight. Do
not store together with: highly inflammable substances Suitable materials
are: Steel Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Observe prohibition against storing
together!

Specific end use(s): We are unaware of any specific end uses which go beyond the data reported.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate Engineering Controls:

Use closed-system units. If contact with gases or vapours cannot be
excluded: Provide good ventilation or extraction. Further Information ACGIH
(American Conference of Governmental Industry Hygienists)

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

Eye/face protection:
close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles) or face protection

Hand Protection:
Material: nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) gloves
Material: leather gloves, heat insulating

Additional Information: Selection of protective gloves to meet the
requirements of specific workplaces., Suitability for specific workplaces
should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers., The information is
based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from
glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.,
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may
be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374
due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).

Skin and Body Protection:
Select materials and equipment for physical protection depending on the
concentration and volume of hazardous substances and the workplace
involved.

Respiratory Protection:
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like
TLV are exceeded: wear a self contained respiratory apparatus Please
note: National regulations. Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective
equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing. Smoking, eating and drinking
should be prohibited in the application area. Observe the rules usually
applicable when handling chemicals.

Environmental Controls:
Avoid release to the environment. Emissions from venting and processing
equipment should be checked in order to ensure that the requirements of
the Environmental Protection Law are satisfied. In some cases, exhaust air
scrubbers, filters or technical changes to the processing plant will be
required in order to decrease emissions to acceptable values.
The environmental regulations on the control and monitoring of
environmental exposures are to be observed.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical Stability: The product is chemically stable.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Formation of peroxides may
occur (in the presence of atmospheric oxygen). For longer storage periods.

Conditions to avoid:
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Incompatible Materials: Strong oxidizing agents Chlorine. Hydrogen chloride. Fluorine. Oxygen

Hazardous Decomposition Products:
In case of fire or thermal decomposition production of for example Carbon Monoxide. Carbon Dioxide.

Disposal considerations
