Description of Necessary First Aid Measures
INHALATION
INGESTION
Medical Attention and Special Treatment
Treatment for cold burns, Immediately flush eyes with
plenty of water for 15 minutes whilst holding lids open.
If redness, itching or burning occurs get medical
attention.
Treatment for cold burns, Wash material off skin with
copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. If
redness, itching or burning occurs get medical attention.
Call doctor. If victim is conscious, move to
uncontaminated area to breath fresh air. Keep warm and
quiet. If victim is unconscious, move to uncontaminated
area and give assisted respiration. Continued treatment
should be symptomatic and supportive.
Not considered a potential route of exposure. Due to
product form and application, ingestion is considered
unlikely.
Treat for asphyxia and cold burns
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable Extinguishing Media
Special Protective Precautions and
Equipment for Fire Fighters
This product is non flammable. Use
fire-extinguishing media appropriate
for surrounding materials.
Rescuers should not enter an oxygen
deficient atmosphere without using
self-contained full face positive
pressure breathing equipment.
Keep containers cool with water
spray. Containers may rupture when
heated, fire exposed containers may
vent contents through pressure relief
device.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Emergency Procedures
Methods and Materials for Containment and Clean Up
Avoid direct skin and eye contact with escaping high pressure gas.
Evacuate the area and ventilate. Do not enter areas where high concentrations
may exist without appropriate protective equipment including a self-contained
breathing apparatus.
Ensure that the area is well ventilated, this substance will dissipate into the
atmosphere.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for Safe Handling
Conditions for Safe Storage, Including any Incompatibilities
Protect cylinders from physical damage, do not drag, roll, slide or drop. When
moving cylinders use cylinder trolley, cage etc specifically designed to
transport cylinders.
Do not move cylinders without safety cap in place to prevent damage to
valve.
Do not store near incompatible materials.
Keep cylinders away from combustible materials and sources of heat and
ignition
Keep cylinders below 50oC in a well ventilated place free from conditions
likely to encourage corrosion.
Cylinders shall be suitably restrained to prevent falling or toppling.

CONTACT
Health Effects From the Likely Routes of Exposure
INHALATION
INGESTION
The liquid form of this material can produce chilling
sensations and discomfort and also frostbite.
Evaporation of liquid from skin can produce chilling
sensations. Frostbite can occur. Avoid carbon dioxide
snow (dry ice).
Carbon dioxide is an asphyxiant. Effects of oxygen
deficiency (below 6 %) are as follows: convulsive
movements, possible respiratory collapse and death.
Not a likely route of entry.
Acute Overexposure
Contact can produce chilling sensations, light headedness, giddiness, shortness of breath, muscular tremors and
weakness, and acrocyanosis. Also unconsciousness or even death.
Chronic Overexposure
Prolonged exposure to an oxygen deficient atmosphere (below 18 % oxygen) may affect the heart and nervous system.
