- Eye contact
: Adverse effects not expected from this product.
- Ingestion
: Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.
4.2.

: In high concentrations may cause asphyxiation. Symptoms may include loss of
mobility/consciousness. Victim may not be aware of asphyxiation.
Refer to section 11.
4.3.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
: None.
SECTION 5: Firefighting measures
5.1.
Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media

Do not use water jet to extinguish.
5.2.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards
: Exposure to fire may cause containers to rupture/explode.
Hazardous combustion products
: Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide.
5.3.
Advice for fire-fighters
Specific methods
: Use fire control measures appropriate for the surrounding fire. Exposure to fire and heat
radiation may cause gas receptacles to rupture. Cool endangered receptacles with water spray
jet from a protected position. Prevent water used in emergency cases from entering sewers and
drainage systems.
If possible, stop flow of product.
Use water spray or fog to knock down fire fumes if possible.
Do not extinguish a leaking gas flame unless absolutely necessary. Spontaneous/explosive reignition may occur. Extinguish any other fire.
Move containers away from the fire area if this can be done without risk.
Special protective equipment for fire fighters
: In confined space use self-contained breathing apparatus.
Standard protective clothing and equipment (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) for fire
fighters.
Standard EN 137 - Self-contained open-circuit compressed air breathing apparatus with full
face mask.

SECTION 7: Handling and storage
7.1.
Precautions for safe handling
Safe use of the product
: The substance must be handled in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
procedures.
Only experienced and properly instructed persons should handle gases under pressure.
Consider pressure relief device(s) in gas installations.
Ensure the complete gas system was (or is regularily) checked for leaks before use.
Do not smoke while handling product.
Use only properly specified equipment which is suitable for this product, its supply pressure and
temperature. Contact your gas supplier if in doubt.
Assess the risk of potentially explosive atmospheres and the need for explosion-proof
equipment.
Purge air from system before introducing gas.
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Keep away from ignition sources (including static discharges).
Consider the use of only non-sparking tools.
Do not breathe gas.
Avoid release of product into atmosphere.
Safe handling of the gas receptacle
: Refer to supplier's container handling instructions.
Do not allow backfeed into the container.
Protect cylinders from physical damage; do not drag, roll, slide or drop.
When moving cylinders, even for short distances, use a cart (trolley, hand truck, etc.) designed
to transport cylinders.
Leave valve protection caps in place until the container has been secured against either a wall
or bench or placed in a container stand and is ready for use.
If user experiences any difficulty operating cylinder valve discontinue use and contact supplier.
Never attempt to repair or modify container valves or safety relief devices.
Damaged valves should be reported immediately to the supplier.
Keep container valve outlets clean and free from contaminants particularly oil and water.
Replace valve outlet caps or plugs and container caps where supplied as soon as container is
disconnected from equipment.
Close container valve after each use and when empty, even if still connected to equipment.
Never attempt to transfer gases from one cylinder/container to another.
Never use direct flame or electrical heating devices to raise the pressure of a container.
Do not remove or deface labels provided by the supplier for the identification of the cylinder
contents.
Containers should be stored in the vertical position and properly secured to prevent them from
falling over.

: Observe all regulations and local requirements regarding storage of containers.
Containers should not be stored in conditions likely to encourage corrosion.
Container valve guards or caps should be in place.
Containers should be stored in the vertical position and properly secured to prevent them from
falling over.
Stored containers should be periodically checked for general condition and leakage.
Keep container below 50°C in a well ventilated place.
Store containers in location free from fire risk and away from sources of heat and ignition.
Keep away from combustible materials.
Segregate from oxidant gases and other oxidants in store.
All electrical equipment in the storage areas should be compatible with the risk of a potentially
explosive atmosphere.

SECTION 13: Disposal considerations
13.1.
Waste treatment methods
Contact supplier if guidance is required.
Do not discharge into areas where there is a risk of forming an explosive mixture with air.
Waste gas should be flared through a suitable burner with flash back arrestor.
Do not discharge into any place where its accumulation could be dangerous.
Ensure that the emission levels from local regulations or operating permits are not exceeded.
Refer to the EIGA code of practice Doc.30 "Disposal of Gases", downloadable at
http://www.eiga.org for more guidance on suitable disposal methods.
