4. FIRST AID MEASURES
4.1 Description of first aid measures
Cold burns: Immediately flush with tepid water or with sterile saline solution. Hold eyelids apart and irrigate
Eye
for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
Ingestion
If inhaled, remove from contaminated area. To protect rescuer, use an Air-line respirator or Self Contained
Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). Be aware of possible explosive atmospheres. Apply artificial respiration if not
breathing. Give oxygen if available.
Cold burns: Remove contaminated clothing and gently flush affected areas with warm water (30°C) for 15
minutes. Apply sterile dressing and treat as for a thermal burn. For large burns, immerse in warm water for
15 minutes. DO NOT apply any form of direct heat. Seek immediate medical attention.
Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.
First aid facilities
No information provided.
Inhalation
Skin
4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
In high concentrations may cause asphyxiation. Direct contact with the liquefied material or escaping compressed gas may cause
frostbite injury.
4.3 Immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treat symptomatically.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
5.1 Extinguishing media
Use water fog to cool containers from protected area.
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Non flammable. May evolve toxic gases (fluorides, carbon oxides, hydrocarbons) when heated to decomposition.
5.3 Advice for firefighters
Temperatures in a fire may cause cylinders to rupture. Cool cylinders or containers exposed to fire by applying water from a protected
location. Remove cool cylinders from the path of the fire. Evacuate the area if unable to keep cylinders cool. Do not approach
cylinders or containers suspected of being hot.
5.4 Hazchem code
2TE
2
Fine Water Spray.
T
Wear full fire kit and breathing apparatus. Dilute spill and run-off.
E
Evacuation of people in and around the immediate vicinity of the incident should be considered.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
If the cylinder is leaking, evacuate area of personnel. Inform manufacturer/supplier of leak. Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
as detailed in Section 8 of the SDS.
6.2 Environmental precautions
Prevent from entering sewers, basements and workpits, or any place where its accumulation can be dangerous.

6.3 Methods of cleaning up
Carefully move material to a well ventilated remote area, then allow to discharge if safe to do so. Do not attempt to repair leaking valve
or cylinder safety devices.
6.4 Reference to other sections
See Sections 8 and 13 for exposure controls and disposal.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation. Do not drag, drop, slide or roll cylinders. The
uncontrolled release of a gas under pressure may cause physical harm. Use a suitable hand truck for cylinder movement.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Do not store near incompatible materials. Cylinders should be stored below 45°C in a secure area, upright and restrained to prevent
cylinders from falling. Cylinders should also be stored in a dry, well ventilated area constructed of non-combustible material with firm
level floor (preferably concrete), away from areas of heavy traffic and emergency exits.
7.3 Specific end use(s)
No information provided.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT GUIDELINES:
The recommendation for protective equipment contained within this report is provided as a guide
only. Factors such as method of application, working environment, quantity used, product
concentration and the availability of engineering controls should be considered before final selection
of personal protective equipment is made.
HEALTH EFFECTS FROM EXPOSURE:
It should be noted that the effects from exposure to this product will depend on several factors
including: frequency and duration of use; quantity used; effectiveness of control measures; protective
equipment used and method of application. Given that it is impractical to prepare a ChemAlert report
