TLV Units
1000 ppm
CAS #811-97-2
All components of this material are listed on the TSCA inventory.
3. Hazard Identification
Emergency Overview:
Clear colorless liquefied gas. Nonflammable. Liquid acts as a refrigerant and exposure of
unprotected skin to liquid can cause frostbite. Keep away from children.
Potential Health Effects
Eyes:
Skin:
Ingestion:
Inhalation:
Vapor contact: May irritate and cause pain and watering. Liquid contact: Direct contact may irritate
seriously with risk of frostbite. Persons wearing contact lenses should wear chemical protective
safety glasses when using this product.
Contact can cause frostbite.
Not considered a potential route of exposure due to the volatile nature of material. Contact with
liquid can cause frostbite to mouth and throat tissues.
Harmful if inhaled. Inhalation of high concentrations of vapors is harmful and may cause heart
irregularities, unconsciousness or death. Intentional misuse or deliberate inhalation may cause death
without warning. Vapor reduces oxygen available for breathing and is heavier than air.
Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure:
Preexisting disease of the central nervous or cardiovascular system may have increased susceptibility to the toxicity of excessive
exposures.
4. First Aid Measures
Eyes:
Skin:
Ingestion:
Inhalation:
Immediately flush with water. Remove any contact lenses and continue flushing for 15 minutes,
lifting eyelids occasionally until no evidence of the chemical remains. If irritation develops or
persists call a physician.
Wash promptly with soap and warm water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing
and shoes. If irritation develops or persists call a physician.
Not considered a potential route of exposure. Treat for possible frostbite. Swallowing less than an
ounce of material is unlikely to cause significant harm. For larger amounts, do not induce vomiting.
Call a physician.
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Call a doctor.
Note to Attending Physician:
There is no specific antidote to overexposure. Treatment of overexposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the
clinical condition of the patient. Immediate medical attention for acute overexposure is required.

5. Firefighting Measures
Flash Point:
Autoignition Temperature:
Flammable Limits in Air:
Extinguishing Media:
Will not burn.
> 750o C
LEL/UEL: Not Applicable.
Use dry chemical, "alcohol" foam, CO2 or water.
Special Firefighting Procedures:
Evacuate personnel. Wear self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full protective equipment. Keep containers cool.
Containers build pressure under fire conditions causing violent bursting and dangerous propelling of container.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Spill or Leak: Although the chances of a large spill or leak is unlikely in aerosol containers, in the event of such an occurrence,
evacuate area. Protected personnel should remove ignition sources and shut off fire sources. Provide ventilation.
7. Handling and Storage
Avoid breathing vapors or mist. Keep containers closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid repeated or prolonged contact
with eyes, skin or clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not store in direct sunlight. Store in cool dry place, away from
heat, sparks or flames which may generate toxic decomposition products. Vapors are heavy and may concentrate in low poorly
ventilated areas.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Respiratory Protection:
Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep container closed. Use approved NIOSH self-contained or
supplied air respirators for emergencies and in situations where air may be displaced by vapors.
Eye Protection:
Use chemical protective safety glasses.
Protective Clothing:
Where there is potential for skin contact, use appropriate impervious gloves, apron, pants and jacket.
