CHEMICAL PRODUCT Page 1 Chemtrec 1-800-424-9300 PRODUCT NAME: Carbon Monoxide/Oxygen/Nitrogen SYNONYMS: Carbon Monoxide/Oxygen/Nitrogen 2. COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS Ingredient Name Formula Carbon Monoxide Oxygen Nitrogen CO O2 N2 CAS# 630-08-0 7782-44-7 7727-37-9 Concentration 10 ppm -12.5% 12.0% - 21.0% Balance TLV 25 ppm N/A S/A 3 .HAZARD IDENTIFICATION POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS: Inhalation of carbon monoxide can reduce the ability of the blood to carry oxygen to the body and may adversely affect fetal development. Effects depend on the level of exposure and may include headaches, dizziness, convulsions, loss of consciousness and death. Carbon monoxide may also adversely affect fetal development. ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY OVEREXPOSURE: None Known. Recovery from carbon monoxide may be adversely affected by obesity, alcoholism and chronic heart disease. OTHER EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Contact with rapidly expanding gas near the point of release may cause frostbite. OSHA Regulatory Status: This material is classified as hazardous under OSHA regulations. Carcinogenicity (US Only): NTP – No IARC MONOGRAPHS - No OSHA REGULATED – No NFPA Hazard Codes: Health: 1 Flammability: 0 Instability: 0 HMIS Hazard Codes: Health: 1 Flammability: 0 Physical Hazard: 3 Rating System 0 = No Hazard 1 = Slig ht Hazard 2 = Moderate Hazard 3 = Serious Hazard 4 = Severe Hazard Page 2 4. First Aid Measures Inhalation: Immediately remove victim to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. The physician should be informed that the patient has inhaled toxic quantities of carbon monoxide. Eye Contact: Immediately flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Skin contact: Immediately flush with copious amount of water for at least 15 minutes. Ingestion: None\ 5. Fire Fighting Measures Flash Point: N/Ap Gas Autoignition Temperature: N/Ap Flammable Limits: Nonflammable Gas Lower: Upper: Extinguishing Media: Use what is appropriate for surrounding fire. Special Fire fighting Instruction and Equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Keep fire from exposed cylinders and cool with water spray, If possible, stop the product flow. Hazardous Combustion Products: None Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Cylinder rupture may occur under fire conditions. 6. Accidental Release Measures Clean Up Procedures: Evacuate and ventilate area. Remove leaking cylinder to exhaust hood or safe outdoor area. Shut off cylinder if possible. Specialized Equipment: None 7. Handling and Storage Precautions To Be Taken In Handling: Secure cylinder when using to protect from falling. Precautions To Be Taken In Storage: Protect cylinders from physical damage. Store in cool, dry, well ventilated area. Do not allow the temperature where cylinders are stored to exceed 125 degrees F. Page 3 8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection Engineering Controls: Provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation to maintain concentrations below exposure limits and to avoid asphyxiation. Eye/Face Protection: Safety goggles or glasses as appropriate for the job. Skin Protection: Protective gloves of material appropriate for the job. Respiratory Protection: In case of leakage, use of self-contained breathing apparatus should be available for emergency use. Other Protective Equipment: Safety Shoes 9.
