SECTION 4 – FIRST-AID MEASURES
4.1 Description of first aid measures:
Eyes: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
Skin: Wash skin thoroughly with large amounts of water. Consult a physician if irritation develops or persists. Remove contaminated
clothing and wash before re-use. An MDI skin decontamination study demonstrated that cleaning very soon after exposure is
important, and that a Polyglycol-based skin cleanser or corn oil may be more effective than soap and water.
Inhalation: If affected by vapors, remove patient to fresh air and get medical attention. Give oxygen or artificial respiration if
necessary. Do not give stimulants. Epinephrine and similar drugs may adversely affect the heart due to a possible risk of eliciting
cardiac dysrhythmias.
Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately. The hazard of aspirating material into the lungs
is greater than the hazard associated with allowing material to progress through the intestinal tract.
4.2 Note to physician:
No specific antidote. Supportive care. Treatment based on judgment of the physician in response to reactions of the patient. May
cause respiratory sensitization or asthma-like symptoms. Bronchodilators, Expectorants, and Antitussives may be of help.
Respiratory symptoms, including pulmonary edema, may be delayed. Persons receiving significant exposure should be observed
for 24-48 hours for signs of respiratory distress.
SECTION 5 – FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
5.1 Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon Dioxide, Dry Chemical, or Alcohol Foam are preferred. Water is not recommended but may
be applied in large amounts as a fine spray if other extinguishing media are not available.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use direct water stream as it may spread fire. Product reacts with water. Reaction may
be violent, producing heat and gases.
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
During a fire dense smoke will be produced containing the original material as well as unidentified toxic or irritating compounds.
Hazardous combustion products may include, but are not limited to, nitrogen oxides, isocyanates, hydrogen cyanide, carbon
monoxide, and carbon dioxide. Sealed container may rupture from gases generated in a fire situation. Spills of these organic liquids
on hot fibrous insulations may lead to lowering of the auto-ignition temperatures. This may result in spontaneous combustion.
5.3 Protective equipment / Precautions for fire-fighters:
Fire-fighters should wear full protective fire-fighting gear including a full face piece, positive-pressure self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA). Avoid contact with this material during fire-fighting operations. Consider fighting fire from a remote location with
unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Immediately withdraw all personnel from area if you hear rising sound from a venting
safety device or the container discolors.

8.2 Exposure controls:
Engineering controls:
Use only with adequate ventilation. Provide exhaust ventilation to control airborne concentrations. Exhaust systems should be
designed to move the air away from workers and the work area. Odor is an inadequate warning of excessive exposure.
Protective equipment:
Eye protection: Wear chemical resistant safety goggles.
Hand protection: Wear chemically resistant gloves such as: nitrile/butadiene (NBR), neoprene, butyl rubber or PVC (vinyl). An
individual’s body reaction to specific glove materials should be considered during the selection process and verified prior to the
application. The break through time of the selected glove must be greater than the intended period of use.
Other protective equipment: Wear chemical resistant clothing such that no skin is exposed.
Respiratory protection: If concentration levels exceed exposure limits, use a NIOSH approved air-purifying respirator equipped
with an organic vapor cartridge and particle filter (P100). Employers are required to implement a cartridge change-out schedule for
such respirators. If concentration levels are unknown or extremely high use a positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.

SECTION 11 – TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
11.1 Information on toxicological effects:
Likely Routes of Exposure: Inhalation, ingestion, skin, and eye contact.
Toxicity Data:
Oral – LD50 = >10,000 mg/kg
Dermal – LD50 = >2000 mg/kg
Effects and Symptoms:
Immediate: May cause eye and skin irritation. Excessive exposure by inhalation may cause irritation of the eyes,
respiratory tract, and lungs. Pulmonary edema may also occur. Tetrafluoroethane vapors may cause drowsiness or
dizziness. Excessive exposure can lead to unconsciousness or asphyxiation.
Delayed: Respiratory symptoms may not present for several hours.
Chronic: May cause skin and respiratory sensitization. Skin contact may play a role in respiratory sensitization. Sensitized
individuals may have allergic reactions to concentrations below exposure guidelines. Repeated, excessive exposures to
MDI aerosols have been shown to cause tissue injury to the upper respiratory tract and lungs in laboratory animals.
Decreased lung function has been associated with overexposure to isocyanates.
Carcinogen: Lung tumors have been observed in lab animals in correlation with persistent lung injury caused by repeated,
excessive exposures to aerosols. Such exposures are unlikely to occur in actual working environments.
SECTION 12 – ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
12.1 Ecotoxicity:
Based on information for MDI and polymeric MDI. The ecotoxicity measurement is that of the hydrolyzed product generally under
conditions maximizing production of soluble species. Material is practically non-toxic to aquatic organisms on an acute basis
(LC50/EC50 >100mg/L in the most sensitive species). The LC50 for earthworm eisenia foetida is >1000 mg/kg.
12.2 Persistence and degradability:
In the aquatic and terrestrial environment, material reacts with water forming predominantly insoluble polymers which appear to be
stable. In the atmospheric environment, material is expected to have a short tropospheric half-life, based on calculations and by
analogy with related diisocyanates.
12.3 Bioaccumulative potential:
No data available.
12.4 Mobility in soil:
Movement is expected to be limited by the product’s reactivity with water, forming predominantly insoluble polymers.
12.5 Results of PBT and vPvB assessment:
No data available.
12.6 Other adverse effects:
None known.
SECTION 13 – DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
13.1 Waste treatment methods:
Procedure for handling empty or partially used disposable cylinders:
Versi-Foam® is best disposed of as solid material as opposed to the liquid chemicals. To that end, we recommend the following:
Empty remaining chemicals, if any, into a waste container. Make sure that the waste container contains both “A” and “B” chemicals.
They do not have to be on ratio, but they both must be present. Mix the waste chemical blend with a stick so that it becomes a solid
substance. This substance can then be disposed of as solid industrial waste.
VENTING OF THE TANKS: Turn the tanks upside down. Open tank valves. Leave in this position for 24 hours. Any remaining
pressure should be evacuated from the tanks within this period of time.
If only one of the chemicals remains within the container, the chemical must be absorbed and possibly neutralized before disposal.
For “A” chemical remaining, follow this procedure:
Always wear respiratory protection. After venting tanks, empty “A” chemical into a waste container. Absorb chemical with a dry
oil-absorbent material (for example sawdust or vermiculite). Remove to an outdoor or extremely well ventilated area.
Decontaminate with solution of 90-95 parts water, 2–8 parts aqueous ammonia solution and .03-.05 parts liquid detergent. Be
sure to add 10%-20% of this decontamination solution to the absorbed chemical. DO NOT SEAL THE CONTAINER. Allow to
stand for 72 to 96 hours. Dispose of as solid industrial waste.

Waste, Residue, or Chemical: DO NOT DUMP INTO ANY SEWERS, ON THE GROUND, OR INTO ANY BODY OF WATER. The
preferred option for disposal is sending waste to a licensed and permitted recycler, reclaimer, incinerator, or other thermal
destruction device. All disposal methods must be in compliance with local, state, national, and international regulations. Compliance
with these regulations is the sole responsibility of the waste generator. RHH FOAM SYSTEMS, INC. HAS NO CONTROL OVER
THE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES OR MANUFACTURING PROCESSES OF PARTIES HANDLING OR USING THIS MATERIAL.
THE INFORMATION HERE PERTAINS ONLY TO THE PRODUCT AS SHIPPED IN ITS INTENDED CONDITION.
Container: Containers may contain residue and should be treated with the same considerations as the product itself. Dispose of
vented empty tanks as ordinary industrial waste. Check with your City Department of Public Works for more information.
Procedure for handling empty refillable tanks:
Refillable tanks, measuring in 9 gallons or larger, should be returned to RHH Foam Systems Inc., where they will be cleaned, refilled
and re-distributed.

SECTION 8 – EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
8.1 Control parameters:
Ingredient
1,1,1,2 Tetrafluoroethane
CAS #
OSHA PEL
ACGIH TLV
WEEL TWA
4240 mg/m3 ; 1000 ppm

8.2 Exposure controls:
Engineering controls:
Mechanical or local exhaust is required to keep airborne concentrations at safe levels. Exhaust systems should be monitored
regularly in case of obstruction.
Protective equipment:
Eye protection: Wear chemical resistant safety goggles.
Hand protection: Wear chemically resistant gloves such as: nitrile/butadiene (NBR), neoprene, butyl rubber or PVC (vinyl). An
individual’s body reaction to specific glove materials should be considered during the selection process and verified prior to the
application. The break through time of the selected glove must be greater than the intended period of use.
Other protective equipment: Wear chemical resistant clothing such that no skin is exposed.
Respiratory protection: If concentration levels exceed exposure limits, use a NIOSH approved air-purifying respirator equipped
with an organic vapor cartridge and particle filter (P100). Employers are required to implement a cartridge change-out schedule for
such respirators. If concentration levels are unknown or extremely high use a positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.

SECTION 13 – DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
13.1 Waste treatment methods:
Procedure for handling empty or partially used disposable cylinders:
Versi-Foam® is best disposed of as solid material as opposed to the liquid chemicals. To that end, we recommend the following:
Empty remaining chemicals, if any, into a waste container. Make sure that the waste container contains both “A” and “B” chemicals.
They do not have to be on ratio, but they both must be present. Mix the waste chemical blend with a stick so that it becomes a solid
substance. This substance can then be disposed of as solid industrial waste.
VENTING OF THE TANKS: Turn the tanks upside down. Open tank valves. Leave in this position for 24 hours. Any remaining
pressure should be evacuated from the tanks within this period of time.
If only one of the chemicals remains within the container, the chemical must be absorbed and possibly neutralized before disposal.
For “B” chemical remaining, follow this procedure:
After venting tanks, empty “B” chemical into waste container. Absorb with dry oil-absorbent material (for example sawdust or
vermiculite). Dispose of as ordinary industrial waste.
Waste, Residue, or Chemical: DO NOT DUMP INTO ANY SEWERS, ON THE GROUND, OR INTO ANY BODY OF WATER. The
preferred option for disposal is sending waste to a licensed and permitted recycler, reclaimer, incinerator, or other thermal
destruction device. All disposal methods must be in compliance with local, state, national, and international regulations. Compliance
with these regulations is the sole responsibility of the waste generator. RHH FOAM SYSTEMS, INC. HAS NO CONTROL OVER
THE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES OR MANUFACTURING PROCESSES OF PARTIES HANDLING OR USING THIS MATERIAL.
THE INFORMATION HERE PERTAINS ONLY TO THE PRODUCT AS SHIPPED IN ITS INTENDED CONDITION.
Container: Containers may contain residue and should be treated with the same considerations as the product itself. Dispose of
vented empty tanks as ordinary industrial waste. Check with your City Department of Public Works for more information.
Procedure for handling empty refillable tanks:
Refillable tanks, measuring in 9 gallons or larger, should be returned to RHH Foam Systems Inc., where they will be cleaned, refilled
and re-distributed.
