TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

In case of fire in the surroundings: use appropriate extinguishing media.
EXPLOSION

In case of fire: keep cylinder cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat. Burning sensation behind the breastbone. Shortness of breath. Laboured breathing.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •SKIN Redness. Pain. Serious skin burns. Blisters. ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE.
Protective gloves. Cold-insulating gloves. Protective clothing.
Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower for at least 15 minutes. ON FROSTBITE: rinse with plenty of water, do NOT remove clothes. Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •EYES Redness. Pain. Severe burns.
Face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS COMPRESSED LIQUEFIED GAS , WITH PUNGENT ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The gas is heavier than air.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
Reacts with oxidants causing fire hazard. Attacks many metals forming flammable/explosive gas (hydrogen - see ICSC 0001). The solution in water is a strong acid, it reacts violently with bases and is corrosive.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK not established.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
Serious local effects by all routes of exposure.

INHALATION RISK:
On loss of containment, a harmful concentration of this gas in the air will be reached very quickly.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite. The substance is corrosive to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. Inhalation may cause severe swelling of the throat. Inhalation may cause lung oedema, but only after initial corrosive effects on eyes and/or airways have become manifest. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
