First Aid

First Aid:EYES/SKIN: BATHE ANY FROSTBITE (DO NOT RUB) WITH LUKEWARM
(NOT HOT) WATER. IN ABSENCE OF WATER, COVER WITH SOFT WOOL OR OTHER
SUITABLE MATERIAL. IF NO FROSTBITE, FLUSH AREAS WITH LARGE AMOUNTS
OF WATE R. REMOVE ANY CLOTHING CONTAMINATED WITH LIQUID. GET
MEDICAL ATTENTION. INHALATION: MOVE TO FRESH AIR. IF NOT BREATHING
GIVE CPR. GIVE OXYGEN AS NECESSARY.GET MEDICAL ATENTION.DO NOT GIVE
EPINEPHRINE.

FULL FACE-PIECE SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS. COOL FIRE
EXPOSED CONTAINERS WITH WATER SPRAY. CONTAIN RUNOFF.
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:CONTAINERS MAY RUPTURE IN FIRE DUE TO
PRESSURE. CONTACT WITH CERTAIN METALS AND OXIDIZING MATERIALS MAY
PRODUCE EXOTHERMIC REACTIONS OR EXPLOSIVE COMBINATIONS.

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:USING A SELF-CONTAINED AIR SUPPLY AND
PROTECTION AGAINST FROSTBITE, ATTEMPT TO CLOSE VALVES OR REPAIR
SOURCE OF LEAK, REMOVE OPEN FLAMES AND PROVIDE ADEQUATE
VENTILATION. RELEASE TO ENVIRONMENT MAY BE SUBJECT TO
FEDERAL/STATE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS.
Neutralizing Agent:NONE SPECIFIED BY MANUFACTURER.

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:STORE IN COOL, WELL-VENTILATED AREA
AWAY FROM HEAT, FLAME, COMBUSTIBLES. PROTECT CYLINDER/FITTINGS FROM

OR DROP CYLINDER OR EXPOSE THEM TO OPEN FLAME OR EXCESSIVE HEAT.
USE AUTHORIZED C ONTAINERS ONLY. DO NOT BREATHE GAS.

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:NONE GENERALLY REQUIRED FOR ADEQUATELY VENTED
WORK SITUATIONS. FOR SITUATIONS WHERE CONCENTRATIONS EXCEED 1000
PPM, USE NIOSH APPROVED SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS OR
SUPPLIED-AIR RESPIRATOR. AT HIGH CONCENTRATIONS,ADD FULL
FACEPIECE.
Ventilation:PROVIDE LOCAL EXHAUST AT FILLING ZONES AND WHERE LEAKAGE IS
PROBABLE.MECHANICAL(GENERAL) MAY BE ADEQUATE FOR OTHER AREAS
Protective Gloves:PROTECTIVE WITH IMPERVIOUS OUTER LAYER.
Eye Protection:SAFETY GLASSES FOR NORMAL CONDITIONS.
Other Protective Equipment:PROTECTIVE CLOTHING WITH IMPERVIOUS OUTER
LAYER AND THERMAL INSULATION UNDERNEATH TO PREVENT FROSTBITE.
Work Hygienic Practices:WASH AFTER HANDLING AND BEFORE EATING,
DRINKING, OR SMOKING. LAUNDER CONTAMINATED CLOTHING BEFORE REUSE.
Supplemental Safety and Health
