Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:YES
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:CARBON DIOXIDE IS THE MOST POWERFUL
CEREBRAL VASODILATOR KNOWN.INHALING LARGE CONCENTRATIONS CAUSES
RAPID CIRCULATORY INSUFFICIENCY LEADING TO COMA &
DEATH.CHRONIC,HARMFUL EFFECTS ARE NOT KNOWN FROM R EPEATED
INHALATION OF LOW (3-5 MOLAR %)CONCENTRATIONS.
Effects of Overexposure:NERVOUS SYSTEM CONTROL OF RESPIRATION IS
DEPENDENT ON THE CO2 LEVEL BREATHED IN AIR.BY REDUCING THE OXYGEN
LEVEL IN AIR,CO2 CAN CAUSE SUFFOCATION.SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE
INCLUDE HEADACHE,DIZZINESS,SH ORTNESS OF BREATH,MUSCULAR
WEAKNESS,DROWSINESS & RINGING IN THE EARS.

First Aid

First Aid:PROMPT MEDICAL ATTENTION IS MANDATORY IN ALL CASES OF
OVEREXPOSURE TO CARBON DIOXIDE.RESCUE PERSONNEL SHOULD BE EQUIPPED
W/SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS.CONSCIOUS PERSONS SHOULD BE
ASSISTED TO AN UNCONTAMINATED AREA & INHALE FRESH AIR.QUICK
REMOVAL FROM THE CONTAMINATED AREA IS MOST IMPORTANT.UNCONSCIOUS
PERSONS SHOULD BE MOVED TO AN UNCONTAMINED AREA,GIVEN
MOUTH-TO-MOUTH RESUSCITATION.

Fire Fighting

Flash Point:NA
Lower Limits:NA
Upper Limits:NA
Extinguishing Media:NONFLAMMABLE, INERT GAS.
Fire Fighting Procedures:USE WATER SPRAY TO COOL FIRE-EXPOSED
CONTAINERS TO PREVENT RUPTURE.THIS MATERIALIS NONCOMBUSTIBLE.IT CAN
BE USED AS EXTINGUISHING AGENT FOR ITS SMOTHERING EFFEC
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:IT IS NOT EFFECTIVE FOR USE ON FIRES
INVOLVING CHEMICALS THAT HAVE THEIR OWN OXYSUPPLY; OR ON FIRES
INVOLVING REACTIVE METALS, OR THEIR HYDRIDES.

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:EVACUATE AREA OF MAJOR SPILL OR RELEASE OF
CO2.NOTIFY SAFETY PERSONNEL.PROVIDE VENTILATION.CLEAN-UP PERSONNEL
NEED SPECIAL TRAINING & PROTECTION AGAINST CONTACT W/VERY COLD
MATERIALS OR EXCESSIVE INHA LATION OF GASEOUS CO2.

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:DO NOT STORE CYLS IN SUB-SURFACE OR
CLOSED AREAS. PROVIDE GENERAL & LOCAL EXHAUST VENTILATION TO MEET
TLV REQUIREMENTS.
Other Precautions:COMPRESSED GAS CYLS SHOULD NOT BE REFILLED EXCEPT BY
QUALIFIED PRODUCERS OF COMPRESSED GASES.SHIPMENT OF A COMPRESSED
GAS CYL WHICH HAS NOT BEEN FILLED BY THE OWNER OR W/WRITTEN CONSENT
IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW (49CFR).

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:POSITIVE PRESSURE AIR LINE W/MASK OR
SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR
EMERGENCY USE.
Ventilation:YES TO PREVENT ACCUMULATION ABOVE THE TWA.
Protective Gloves:LOOSE FITTING, INSULATED.
Eye Protection:SAFETY GOGGLES/GLASSES.
Other Protective Equipment:SAFETY SHOES.
