EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
***
Flammable, high pressure gas.
Can form explosive mixtuers with air.
Burns with an invisible flame.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation
ACUTE EFFECTS: Mixture can act as a simple asphyxiant by displacing
air
necessary for life. Symptoms include rapid respiration, muscular
incoordination,
fatigue, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, unconsciousness, and death.
CHRONIC EFFECTS: None known
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY OVEREXPOSURE: None known
OTHER EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE: None

NTP - No
IARC MONOGRAPHS - No
OSHA REGULATED - No
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------4. FIRST AID MEASURES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------INHALATION: Immediately remove victim to fresh air. If breathing has
stopped,
give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
EYE CONTACT: None
SKIN CONTACT: Non
INGESTION: None
IN EVENT OF EXPOSURE, CONSULT A PHYSICIA
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: None

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS:
Severe when exposed to heat or flame.
Burns with an invisible flame.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------CLEAN UP PROCEDURES: Evacuate and ventilate area. Check for
invisible flame with
tissue paper. Remove leaking cylinder to exhaust hood or safe
outdoor area.
Remove sources of ignition and combustibles. Shut off source if
possible and
remove source of heat.
SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT: None
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING: Secure cylinder when using to
protect from
falling. Use suitable hand truck to move cylinders.
PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN STORAGE:
Store in well ventilated areas. Keep
valve protection cap on cylinders when
not in use. Keep away from oxidizing
agents.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/ PERSONAL
PROTECTION
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Provide adequate general and local exhaust
ventilation to
maintain concentrations below flammable limits and to avoid
asphyxiation.
PERSONAL PROTECTION
EYE/FACE PROTECTION: Safety glasses
SKIN PROTECTION: None
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: In case of
leakage, use self-contained breathing
apparatus.
OTHER PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Safety shoes
when handling cylinders.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: Dispose of non-refillable cylinders in
accordance with
federal, state and local regulations. Allow gas to vent slowly to
atmosphere in
an unconfined area or exhaust hood. If the cylinders are the
refillable type,
return cylinders to supplier with any valve outlet plugs or caps
secured and
valve protection caps in place.
