SECTION 4: First aid measures
4.1 Description of first aid measures
Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary. Call a physician
immediately.
Sk in contact:
Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite. In case of contact with liquid, thaw frosted parts
with water, then remove clothing carefully. Wash with plenty of water Consult a physician. Take off
contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Eye contact:
Remove contact lenses. Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15
minutes.
Ingestion:
Ingestion is unlikely because of the physical properties and is not expected to be hazardous.
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
no data available
4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment ne eded
Do not give adrenaline or similar drugs.
See Section 11 for more detailed information on health effects and symptoms.
SECTION 5: Firefighting measures
5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
The product is not flammable.
ASHRAE 34
Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Possibility of generating hazardous reactions during a fire due to the presence of F and Cl groups.
Heating will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting
Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.
This product is not flammable at ambient temperatures and atmospheric pressure.
However, this material can ignite when mixed with air under pres sure and exposed to strong ignition
sources.

Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding
environment.
SECTION 6: Accidental release measures
6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Immediately contact emergency personnel. Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons
must be kept away. Ensure adequate ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable
respiratory equipment.
6.2. Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. The product evapourates readily.

Ventilate the area.
6.4. Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8.
SECTION 7: Handling and storage
7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure. The product should only be used in areas from
which all naked lights and other sources of ignition have been excluded. Pressurized container. Protect
from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 °C. Do not pierce or burn, even after
use. Do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material. Do not use in areas without adequate
ventilation. Contaminated equipment (brushes, rags) must be cleaned immediately with water.
Hygiene measures:
Provide adequate ventilation. When using do not eat or drink.
7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions:
Store in original container. Keep away from direct sunlight. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool,
well-ventilated place.

Hazard Summary
WARNING! Contains gas under pressure; may explode if
heated. This product is not flammable at ambient
temperatures and atmospheric pressure. Gas reduces oxygen
available for breathing. Causes asphyxiation in high
concentrations. The victim will not realize that he/she is
suffocating. Inhalation may cause central nervous system
effects. May cause cardiac arrhythmia. May cause drowsiness
and dizziness. Do not breathe vapour. Irritating to eyes and
skin. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. At higher
temperatures, (>250 C), decomposition products may include
hydrofluoric acid (HF) and carbonyl halides. The ACGIH
Threshold Limit Values (2007) for Hydrogen Fluoride are TLVTWA 0.5 ppm and Ceiling Exposure Limit 2 ppm.
Potential Health Effects
Skin
Irritating to skin.
Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite.
Eyes
Causes serious eye irritation.
May cause frostbite.

SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Inhalation
Move to fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stopped,
administer artificial respiration. Use oxygen as required,
provided a qualified operator is present. Call a physician. Do
not give drugs from adrenaline-ephedrine group.
Skin contact
After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water.
Ifthere is evidence of frostbite, bathe (do not rub) with
lukewarm (not hot) water. If water is not available, cover with a
clean, soft cloth or similar covering. If symptoms persist, call a
physician.
Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids,
for at least 15 minutes. In case of frostbite water should be
lukewarm, not hot. If symptoms persist, call a physician.
Ingestion
Unlikely route of exposure. As this product is a gas, refer to the

Notes to physician
Treatment
Because of the possible disturbances of cardiac rhythm,
catecholamine drugs, such as epinephrine, should be used
with special caution and only in situations of emergency life
support. Treatment of overexposure should be directed at the
control of symptoms and the clinical conditions. Treat frostbitten areas as needed.

Follow all standard safety precautions for handling and use of
compressed gas cylinders.
Keep away from heat.
Use authorized cylinders only.
Protect cylinders from physical damage.
Do not puncture or drop cylinders, expose them to open flame
or excessive heat.
Do not pierce or burn, even after use. Do not spray on a naked
flame or any incandescent material.
Do not remove screw cap until immediately ready for use.
Always replace cap after use.
Advice on protection
against fire and explosion
The product is not flarnrnable.
Can form a combustible mixture with air at pressures above
atrnospheric pressure.
Storage
Requirements for storage
areas and containers
Pressurized container: Protect from sunlight and do not expose
to temperatures exceeding 50 "C. Do not pierce or burn, even
after use.
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated
place.
Storage rooms must be properly ventilated.

Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Protect cylinders from physical damage.
SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLSIPERSONAL PROTECTION
Protective measures
Do not breathe vapour.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to
the workstation location.
Engineering measures
General room ventilation is adequate for storage and handling.
Perform filling operations only at stations with exhaust
ventilation facilities.
Eye protection
Wear as appropriate:
Safety glasses with side-shields
If splashes are likely to occur, wear:
Goggles or face shield, giving complete protection to eyes
Hand protection
Leather gloves
In case of contact through splashing:
Protective gloves
Neoprene gloves
Polyvinyl alcohol or nitrile- butyl-rubber gloves
Skin and body protection
Avoid skin contact with leaking liquid (danger of frostbite).
Wear cold insulating gloveslface shield/eye protection.
Respiratory protection
In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory
equipment.
Wear a positive-pressure supplied-air respirator.
Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by
reducing oxygen available for breathing.
For rescue and maintenance work in storage tanks use selfcontained breathing apparatus.
Hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
practice.
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Keep working clothes separately.
