Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.) Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Do not use water on material itself. Use water spray to knock-down vapors.
May burn but does not ignite readily.
Containers may explode when heated. Ruptured cylinders may rocket.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Unlikely to occur.
Vapors may cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning.
Contact with gas or liquefied gas may cause burns, severe injury and/or frostbite.
Seek medical assistance.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with liquefied gas, thaw frosted parts with lukewarm water.
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Then get immediate medical attention.
