Octafluoropropane is essentially non-toxic, however, as a compressed gas it will cause cooling as it evaporate which could lead to frost bite in extreme cases.
Non-flammable; all types of extinguishers are suitable.
Keep cylinders of octafluoropropane cool; be aware that cylinder may develop very high pressure when heated
Very toxic fumes from decomposition products, including hydrofluoride and carbon monoxide - breathing apparatus required
As octafluoropropane is a gas it will quickly escape into the atmosphere. Act promptly to stop or reduce any release as soon as possible.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Compressed gas will cause cooling when vaporising; cold protection required
Use in contained systems that will prevent any leakage to the environment.
Standard protection when handling a gas should be used.
Use eye protection.
Use is sealed systems.
If the gas is compressed, wear gloves to protect against cold if the material is evaporating.
Material is extremely stable under most conditions.
May react with alkali metals.
High temperatures (>400°C) will give highly toxic decomposition products.
Material can be incinerated but a scrubber must be fitted to remove toxic decomposition products.
