First-aid measures

Eye Contact: In case of frostbite, immediately flush eyes with water; remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue flushing eyes for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention promptly, preferably from an ophthalmologist.

Skin Contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Move person to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration; if by mouth to mouth use rescuer protection (pocket mask, etc). If breathing is difficult, oxygen should be administered by qualified personnel. Call a physician or transport to a medical facility.

Ingestion: In case of frostbite, immediately rinse lips and mouth with tepid water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention promptly.

Notes to Physician: Maintain adequate ventilation and oxygenation of the patient. Treat for frostbite, if present. No specific antidote. Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Do not extinguish. Stop flow of product and allow fire to burn out. Once product flow has stopped, small fires may be extinguished with: Water fog or fine spray. Dry chemical fire extinguishers. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. Foam.

Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry. Stay upwind. Keep out of low areas where gases (fumes) can accumulate. Do not extinguish. If flames are accidentally extinguished, explosive re-ignition may occur. Shut off source of fuel if possible and allow fire to burn out. Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and fire affected zone until fire is out and danger of reignition has passed. Fight fire from protected location or safe distance. Consider the use of unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Immediately withdraw all personnel from the area in case of rising sound from venting safety device or discoloration of the container. Eliminate ignition sources. For spills of liquefied gas, apply appropriate foam or vapor suppressing agent. Warning! Contact of water with liquefied gas can result in boiling, frothing, and rapid generation of vapor. For unignited vapor cloud, use water spray to knock down and control dispersion of vapors.

Special Protective Equipment for Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves). If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Container may vent and/or rupture due to fire. Vapors may travel a long distance; ignition and/or flash back may occur.

Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion products may include and are not limited to: Carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide

Accidental release measures

Steps to be Taken if Material is Released or Spilled: Isolate area until gas has dispersed. If available, use foam to smother or suppress vapors.

Personal Precautions: Evacuate area. Keep upwind of spill. No smoking in area. Only trained and properly protected personnel must be involved in clean-up operations. For large spills, warn public of downwind explosion hazard. Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spill or released vapor to avoid fire or explosion. Check area with combustible gas detector before reentering area. Ground and bond all containers and handling equipment. Spills of this liquefied gas may form ice, which can plug drains and can make valves inoperable. Contact of water with liquefied gas can result in boiling, frothing, and rapid generation of vapor. Use appropriate safety equipment.

Environmental Precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater.

Handling and storage

General Handling: Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid breathing vapor. Use with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Keep container closed. Electrically bond and ground all containers, personnel and equipment before transfer or use of material.

Storage
No smoking or open flame in storage area.
