Hazards and Protection.
Protection
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Respirators
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Small spills/leaks
Prevent any contact with the spilled material. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Do not direct water at spill or source of leak. If possible, turn leaking containers so that gas escapes rather than liquid. Allow substance to evaporate and vntilate the area.

Fire.
Flash Point,°C
-27
Fire fighting
Use extinguishing agent suitable for type of surrounding fire.
Fire potential
May burn but does not ignite readily
Hazards
Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground.
Combustion products
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Health.
Exposure effects
The toxicological properties of this material have not been investigated. Use appropriate procedures to prevent opportunities for direct contact with the skin or eyes and to prevent inhalation.
   Ingestion
Unlikely to occur.
   Inhalation
Vapors may cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning.
   Skin

See Skin.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Seek medical assistance.
   Inhalation
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
   Skin
