Potential Health Effects
NFPA HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
Degree of Hazard:
Health: 2 Fire: 0 Reactivity: 0
Hazard Ratings: 0: Least, 1: Slight, 2: Moderate, 3: High, 4: Extreme
INHALATION: Avoid inhalation of high concentrations of gas. Acute overexposure may result in irritation of the throat and lungs.
High concentrations in confined areas can displace oxygen and can cause dizziness, unconsciousness, and even death with longer
exposure. Long-term exposure to this product may cause symptoms of drowsiness, dullness, numbness, headache, dizziness,
nausea and increase heart rate.
SKIN CONTACT: Avoid direct skin contact. Direct contact with liquefied/pressurized gas or frost particles may cause severe burns
or frostbite (“cold” burns).
EYE CONTACT: Avoid eye contact. Direct contact with liquefied/pressurized gas or frost particles may cause severe and possibly
permanent eye damage.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Individuals with preexisting diseases of the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, lungs or
kidneys may have increased susceptibility to the toxicity of excessive exposures.

OTHER INFORMATION: The following statement complies with 40cfr III.721.3180 as such applies to R-124 only: Inhalation of high
concentrations of vapor is harmful and may cause heart irregularities, unconsciousness, or death. Intentional misuse can be fatal.
Vapor reduces oxygen available for breathing and is heavier than air. Liquid contact causes frostbite. The effects in animals from
single exposure by inhalation include central nervous system effects, anesthesia, and decreased blood pressure. Cardiac
sensitization occurred in dogs exposed to a concentration of 2.5 percent in air and given an intravenous epinephrine challenge.
Repeated exposures produced increased liver weights, anesthetic effects, irregular respiration, poor coordination, and nonspecific
effects such as decreased body weight gain. However, no irreversible effects were seen as evidenced by histopathologic
evaluation. As part of an extensive toxicology program, halogenated chlorofluorocarbon-124 will be tested in subchronic,
developmental, and chronic/cancer studies. Avoid breathing high concentration of vapor. Use with sufficient ventilation to keep
employee exposure below recommended limits. Avoid contact of liquid with skin and eyes. Wear chemical splash goggles and
lined butyl gloves. DO NOT allow product to contact open flame or electrical heating elements because dangerous decomposition
products may form. R-416A/FR-12 is not carcinogenic, mutagenic, a skin sensitize, or a reproductive toxin according to the OSHA
Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) [29 CFR 1910.1200].
First Aid Measures
INHALATION: Conscious person should be assisted to an uncontaminated area and inhale fresh air. Unconscious person should
be moved to an uncontaminated area, given mouth to mouth resuscitation and supplemental oxygen. Do not give epinephrine
(adrenaline). Seek immediate medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT: If skin is exposed to liquefied/pressurized gas or frost particles, soak with warm water. If frostbite occurs, do not
immerse frozen area into hot water or place in front of a heat source.
EYE CONTACT: If eye is exposed to liquefied/pressurized gas or frost particles, immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water
and continue flushing for 15 minutes until irritation subsides.
INGESTION: Not applicable by this route of exposure. Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not
induce vomiting unless instructed to do so by a physician.
NOTES TO PHYSICIANS: Because of possible disturbances of cardiac rhythm, catecholamine drugs, such as epinephrine, should
be used with special caution only in situations of emergency life support.

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Cylinders are equipped with temperature and pressure relief devices but still may rupture
under fire conditions. Decomposition may occur. Gas vapors can collect and remain in low spots even after the source of gas has
been eliminated. Contact with certain reactive metals may result information of explosive or exothermic reactions under specific
conditions (e.g. – very high temperatures and/or appropriate pressures). Caution! Contents are under pressure and can explode
when exposed to heat or flames.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Extinguishing media is generally not necessary for this material. This material in non-flammable. Use
the extinguishing media appropriate for combustibles in area.
FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS: Keep containers cool with water spray. Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) is required
if cylinders rupture or release under fire conditions. Use water to keep fire exposed containers cool and to protect personnel during
shutoff. If possible, stop the flow of gas or vapor, then fight fire according to types of burning material. If flow cannot be safely shut
off, allow fire to burn itself out. Cool cylinders with water spray until well after fire is out. Upon exposure to intense heat or flame
container may vent rapidly or explode.

Accidental Release Measures
Evacuate all personnel from affected area. Use appropriate protective equipment. If leak is in user’s equipment, be certain to purge
piping with an inert gas prior to attempting repairs. Comply with Federal, State, and local regulations for reporting releases.
Handling And Storage
HANDLING (PERSONNEL): Do not drag, roll, or slide cylinders. Secure cylinders at all times. Use separate control valves or
pressure reducing regulators to safely discharge gas from cylinder. Use a check valve to prevent reverse flow into cylinder, or an
increase in pressure, or an increased discharge rate. Compressed gas cylinders must not be refilled except by a qualified producer
of gas. Shipment of the compressed gas cylinder which has not been filled by the owner or with the owner’s consent, is a violation
of federal law. Do not mix with air for leak testing or use with air for any purpose above atmospheric pressure.
STORAGE: Never expose cylinders to excessive heat. Cylinders should be stored in a well-ventilated area. Storage should not
exceed 50°C (122°F) and should be free of oxidizers or corrosive materials.
Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Respiratory Protection:
Positive pressure air line with mask or self-contained breathing apparatus should be available for
emergency use.
Ventilation:
Protective Gloves:
Use hood with forced ventilation and/or local exhaust codes.
Plastic or rubber
Eye Protection:
Safety glasses or goggles
Other Protective Equip:
