Hazards and Protection.
Grounding and bonding required. Keep separated from incompatible substances. Store in a cool, dry location, away from ignition sources in a sealed container.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles. Always wear thermal protective clothing when handling refrigerated/cryogenic liquids.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Attempt to stop leak if without undue personnel hazard. Use water spray to knock-down vapors.
Halogenated compounds and oxides of carbon.
Upper exp. limit, %
Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Solid streams of water may be ineffective. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible.
May polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Containers may explode when heated. Ruptured cylinders may rocket.
Fire may produce irritating and/or toxic gases.
The toxological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated.
May cause irritation, liver damage, headache, visual disturbances, paralysis, convulsions.
Frostbite, blurred vision.
Seek medical assistance.
Vapors may cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning. May be toxic if inhaled at high concentrations.
Contact with gas or liquefied gas may cause burns, severe injury and/or frostbite.
Flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
