HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION Emergency Overview: Content under pressure. "Frostbite-like" effects may occur if the liquid or escaping vapors contact the eyes or skin. May decompose on contact with flames or extremely hot metal surfaces to produce toxic and corrosive products. Gross inhalation overexposure may cause heart irregularities, unconsciousness or death. Vapor reduces oxygen available for breathing and is heavier than air. Workers with heart disease or compromised heart function should limit exposure to this material. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. HMIS Classification: Health: 1 Flammability: 1 Reactivity: 0 NFPA Rating: Health: 2 Flammability: 1 Reactivity: 0 4. FIRST AID MEASURES Eye Contact: In case of contact, or suspected contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention immediately after flushing. In case of frostbite, water should be lukewarm, lifting eyelids occasionaly to facilitate irrigation Ingestion: Not applicable - product is a gas at ambient temperatures. Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth. If breathing is difficult give oxygen. Get medical attention. Do not give adrenaline, epinephrin or similar drugs following exposure to this product. Skin Contact: For exposure to liquid, immediately warm frostbite area with warm water (not to exceed 105'f). In case of massive exposure, remove clothing while showering with warm water. Get medical attention. Irritation may result from a defatting action on tissue 5.

FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES Autoignition Temperature ?F(?C): 1369 F (743 C) Extinguishing Media: Use water spray to keep containers cool that are exposed to heat or flames. Use extinguishing media appropriate for surrounding fire. Protection Of Fire-Fighters: Special Fire-Fighting Procedures: Warning!! Contents under pressure. Container may rupture under fire conditions. Decomposition may occur. Wear approved positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing. Hazardous Combustion Products: May decompose on contact with flames or extremely hot metal surfaces to produce toxic and corrosive products. Liquid and gas under pressure, overheating or overpressurizing may cause gas release and/or violent cylinder bursting. Container may explode if heated due to resulting pressure rise. Some mixtures of HFCDs and/or HFCs, and air or oxygen may be combustible if pressurized and exposed to extreme heat or flame. Aerosol Comments: NFPA Level 1 Aerosol 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personal Precautions: Wear appropriate protective clothing and equipment to prevent skin and eye contact. Avoid breathing vapor. When airborne exposure limits are exceeded use NIOSH approved respiratory protection equipment appropriate to the material and/or its components. Spill Procedures: Wear protective equipment specified. Avoid all sources of ignition; heat, sparks and open flames. Use Halogen leak detector or other suitable means to locate leaks or check atmosphere. Keep upwind. Evacuate enclosed spaces and disperse gas with floor-level forced-air ventilation. Exhaust vapors outdoors. Do not smoke or operate internal combustoin engines. Evacuate unprotected personnel Action to be taken if material is released or spilled: Increase area ventilation. Do not puncture or incinerate container. Contents under pressure. Environmental Precautions: Do not allow entry to the atmosphere. Recover, reclaim or recycle when practical. 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling and Storage: CAUTION: COMPRESSED GAS. Do not puncutre, incinerate or store above 120 F. Do not store in passenger compartment of automobile. Avoid breathing vapors, if exposed to high vapor concentration, leave area at once. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Should not be mixed with air for leak testing or used for any other purpose above atmospheric pressure. Use only in a well ventilated area. Do not reuse this container. Keep away from heat and open flame. Protect from light and heat 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION Engineering Controls: Local exhaust ventilation as necessary to maintain exposures to within applicable limits. Showers. Eyewash stations. Eyes: Chemical goggles; also wear a face shield if splashing hazard exists. Skin Protection: Avoid skin contact. Wear protective clothing and gloves. Respiratory Protection: An approved respirator (i.e. NIOSH, etc.) should be worn when exposures are expected to exceed the applicable limits. Use in a well ventilated area. 9.
