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
STRICT HYGIENE!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat. Nausea. Vomiting. Tremor.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.
 •SKIN ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE.
Cold-insulating gloves.
ON FROSTBITE: rinse with plenty of water, do NOT remove clothes.
 •EYES Redness.
Face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
NEVER direct water jet on liquid. Remove vapour with fine water spray. Gas-tight chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus.
Fireproof if in building. Keep in a well-ventilated room. Cool. Separated from food and feedstuffs .
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS ODOURLESS COMPRESSED GAS OR COMPRESSED LIQUEFIED GAS

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The gas is heavier than air and may accumulate in lowered spaces causing a deficiency of oxygen.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes including hydrogen fluoride and sulfur oxides .

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 5 ppm as TWA; 10 ppm as STEL; (ACGIH 2004).
MAK not established.
OSHA PEL: TWA 5 ppm (20 mg/m3)
NIOSH REL: TWA 5 ppm (20 mg/m3) ST 10 ppm (40 mg/m3)
NIOSH IDLH: 200 ppm See: 2699798


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.

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:
The substance is severely irritating to the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system , resulting in convulsions , respiratory failure. Inhalation of this gas may cause lung oedema (see Notes). Exposure may result in death. Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

N O T E S
Turn leaking cylinder with the leak up to prevent escape of gas in liquid state. The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation is therefore essential. High concentrations in the air cause a deficiency of oxygen with the risk of unconsciousness or death. Check oxygen content before entering area. There is no odour warning even when toxic concentrations are present. Card has been partly updated in October 2004. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification, Emergency Response.
