Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:NO
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:AT CONCENTRATION IN EXCESS OF
1.5%,CARBON DIOXIDE MAY PRODUCE HYPERVENTILATION, HEADACHES,VISUAL
DISTURBANCES, TREMOR LOS OF CONSCIOUSNESS & DEATH. IF CONCEN-
TRATION EXCEEDS 10%, UNCONSCIOUSNESS CAN OCCUR WITHOUT WARNING,
PREVENTING SELF-RESCUE.AT HIGHER %,CARBON DIOXIDE DISPLACES OXY IN
AIR BELOW LIFE SUSTAIN LEVELS
Effects of Overexposure:CO CONCENTRATION SYMPTOMS:
3-6% = HEADACHES, DYSPNEA,
PERSPIRATION 6-10% =
HEADACHE,DYSPNEA,PERSPIRATION,TR EMORS,VISUAL
DISTURBANCE,UNCONSCIOUSNESSOVER 10% = UNCONSCIOUSNESS

First Aid

First Aid:PERSONS SUFFERING FROM TOXIC EFFECT OF CO SHOULD BE MOVED TO
AREAS WITH NORMAL ATMOS. CPR SHOULD BE GIVEN IF VICTIM IS NOT
BREATHING. FROZEN TISSUE SHOULD BE FLOODED OR SOAKED WITH TEPID
WATER,NOT H OT. CRYOGENIC BURNS WHICH RESULT INBLISTERING OR DEEPER
TISSUE FREEZING SHOULD BE SEEN PROMPLTY BY A PHYSICIAN.
SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS SHOULD BE WORN BY RESCUERS TO
PREVENT EXPOSUR

Fire Fighting

Extinguishing Media:CARBON DIOXIDE IS AN EXTINGUISHING AGENT FOR CLASS
B & C FIRES.

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:CO IN SMALL QUANTITIES WILL VAPORIZE LEAVING
BEHINCO "SNOW". VENTILATE INDOOR AREAS WELL TO AVOID HAZARDOUS CO
CONCENTRATIONS.VENTILATE WELL & AVOIDCONTACT WITH COLD VAPORS OR
DRY ICE. CO IS A HEAVY GAS & REMAINS IN LOW SPOTS W/O
ASSISTEDVENTILATIO

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:PREVENT CONTACT OF CO WITH SKIN. USE
ONLY IN WELLVENTILATED AREAS.KEEP CYLINDERS AWAY FROM SOURCES OF
HEAT.SEGREGATE CYLINDERS.KEEP CYL VALVE END UP.
Other Precautions:IN APPLICATIONS WHERE TEMP LESS THAN-20F/-29C
EXPECTED,AVOID USE OF CARBON STEELOR MAT. WHICH BECOME BRITTLE AT
LOW TEMPS.COMPRESSED GAS CYL. SHOULD NOT BE RE- FILLED EXCEPT BY
QUALIFIED PRODUCERS.AVO ID EXPOSURE WHERE THERE'S CORROSIV CHEMS

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:USE SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS IN
OXYGEN-DEFICIENT ATMOSPHERES OR WHERE CARBON DIOXIDE EXCEEDS 1.5%.
CAUTION! AIR PURIFYING RESPIRATORS WILL NOT FUNCTIOTHEIR USE MAY
RESULT IN ASPHYXIATION.
Ventilation:NATURAL OR MECHANICAL WHERE GAS OR VAPORS ARE PRESENT.
Protective Gloves:LOOSE FITTING IMPERMEABLE MAT./LEATHER
Eye Protection:SAFETY GLASSSES
Supplemental Safety and Health
VENTS SHOULD BE SITUATED TO AVOID HIGHER THAN NORMAL CONCENTRATION OF
CARBON DIOXIDE IN WORK AREAS.

Disposal

Waste Disposal Methods:DON'T ATTEMPT TO DISPOSE OF RESIDUAL CO IN
COMPRESGAS CYLINDERS. WHEN DISPOSING OF BULK QTY OF CO FROM
REFRIGERATED STORAGE TANKS, ALWAYS DISPOSE OFCO OUTSIDE, IN WELL
VENTILATED AREA. VENT SLOWLY SINCE RAPID DEPRESSURIZATION WILL
FORM DRY ICE.
