HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
****************************************************************************************************
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Self-pressurized container of extremely flammable, liquified gas.
Storage at temperatures above 120°F may create a fire hazard.
****************************************************************************************************
PRIMARY ROUTES OF ENTRY: Respiratory system, eyes and skin.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYE CONTACT: Direct contact with liquefied gas can result in frostbite (“cold burn”).
SKIN CONTACT: Exposure to expanding gas or vaporizing liquid may cause frostbite.
INGESTION: Exposure to expanding gas or vaporizing liquid may cause frostbite to
internal organs and tissue. Ingestion not anticipated since components of fuel gas and
propellant are gaseous at ambient pressure and temperature.
INHALATION: May cause asphyxiation in high concentrations. Repeated or prolonged
inhalation may cause toxic effects. See MSDS Section 11 for more information.
4.
FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. Get immediate medical attention.
SKIN: In case of frostbite, do not remove clothes. Get immediate medical attention.
INGESTION: Get immediate medical attention.
INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If
breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get immediate medical attention.

FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASH POINT: approximately -160°F
FLAMMABILITY LIMITS (% in air by volume): approximately 2 to 10
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: dry chemical; carbon dioxide; foam; water
SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Fuel cells may release contents if not
sufficiently cooled with water spray. Isolate hazard area and evacuate unprotected
personnel. Full emergency equipment with self contained breathing apparatus and full
protective clothing should be worn by firefighters.
6.
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES: Eliminate sources of ignition.
Isolate hazard area.
Ventilate hazard area.
7.
HANDLING AND STORAGE
RECOMMENDED STORAGE TEMPERATURE: Below 120° F
SHELF LIFE: For maximum number of tool cycles, use before date code on fuel cell.
HANDLING AND STORAGE PRECAUTIONS: In addition to limitations on storage
temperature, fuel cells should be handled and stored so as to avoid puncture. Even
after use, do not puncture fuel cell or expose fuel cell to high temperature. Do not
attempt to refill the fuel cell.
8.
EXPOSURE CONTROL/PERSONAL PROTECTION
EYE PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS:
Eye protection must be worn when handling fuel cells.
SKIN PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS:
Gloves are recommended when handling fuel cells.
RESPIRATORY/VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS:
Use in a well ventilated environment.

REACTIVITY
STABILITY:
Product is stable.
HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION:
Will not occur.
INCOMPATIBILITIES:
Oxidizing agents, halogens and acids.
DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:
Thermal decomposition or burning may
produce carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide from fuel gas combustion.
11.
TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
ACUTE INHALATION: Low toxicity - LC50 > 5 mg/L (rat). Components of fuel cell
gases and propellant are simple asphyxiants. Exposure to high concentrations of
propylene has been associated with irregular heartbeat.
CHRONIC INHALATION: No significant effects have been demonstrated for any
components except propylene. Chronic exposure to propylene has been associated
with liver damage.
ACUTE EYE OR SKIN CONTACT: Frostbite (“cold burn”) can result from exposure to
expanding gas or vaporizing liquid. Components of fuel cell gas and propellant
at ambient pressure and temperature produce little or no irritation.
CHRONIC EYE OR SKIN CONTACT: No significant effects have been demonstrated
for components of fuel cell gas and propellant at ambient pressure and temperature.
CARCINOGENCITY: No components of fuel cell gas or propellant are classified as
carcinogens by IARC, NTP or OSHA.
12.
ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Ecotoxicological and environmental fate data have not been determined specifically for
this product. Information is based on International Uniform Chemical Information
Database (IUCLID) entries for components of fuel cell gas and propellant.
ECOTOXICOLOGIAL INFORMATION: Anaesthetic to animals and insects at high
concentrations. Not expected to pose hazards to aquatic life. Not inhibitory to plant
growth at ambient concentrations. Bioaccumulation is not expected.
ENVIRONMENTAL FATE INFORMATION: Volatilization is expected to be primary fate
process. Components of fuel cell gas and propellant have photochemical reactivity.
13.
DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: Waste must be disposed of in accordance with federal,
state and local environmental regulations. See RCRA discussion in MSDS Section 15.

RCRA STATUS: If discarded in its purchased form, this product may be classified as a
D001 (ignitable) hazardous waste. Even after use, the fuel cell remains pressurized by
an extremely flammable propellant and may retain these hazardous waste
characteristics. Waste generators must consider federal, state and local hazardous
waste regulations to determine a proper disposal method based on their status as a
conditionally exempt, small quantity or large quantity generator.
