CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES SOLUBLITY IN WATER (@20C): < 0.1% /weight VAPOR DENSITY: >2 SPECIFIC GRAVITY (WATER=1): 0.5676 BOILING POINT: approx. –11.7deg F PRESSURE IN CAN: Approx. 28 psig EVAPORATION RATE (BuAce=1) Gas APPEARANCE AND ODOR: Liquefied compressed gas, flash evaporated at room temperature when released from can, colorless gas with strong mercaptan(skunk like) odor due to stenching agent to gas for leak detection purposes. ODORLESS 3. REACTIVITY DATA STABILITY: STABLE INCOMPATIBILITY: NOTE: Contact with sparks, open flame or any source of ignition HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION WILL NOT OCCUR HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: May produce carbon monoxide when oxidized with a deficiency of oxygen. 4. FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA FLAMMABILITY CATRGORY: Extremely Flammable (reference – Consumer Product Commission, flame projection test aerosol products, per 16CFR 1500.45 FLASH POINT Less than –117 deg F FLAMMABLE LIMITS: LEL % 1.8 EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: If feasible stop flow of gas. Use water to cool fired exposed cartridge, and surroundings and to protect personnel working on shut-off. Water spray, dry power or carbon dioxide can be directed at flame area if gas flow cannot be stopped to reduce fire intensity. DO NOT COMPLETELY EXTINGUISH FLAME UNLESS GAS FLOW HAS BEEN SHUT OFF. UEL % 8.4 SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Avoid possible accumulation of vapors at floor level, as vapor is heavier than air. Self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing should be worn in fighting fires involving chemicals. This product is extremely flammable at all times. Keep away from any sources of inadvertent ignition, including heat, sparks, or flame. UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZZARDS: Avoid possible bursting of cartridge. Don not store where temperature may exceed 120 deg. F. Don not puncture or incinerate. 5. PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE STEPS TO TAKE IN CASE OF SPILL: Protect from ignition source, keep away from heat, fire, sparks, or flame. Ventilate area well. Avoid accumulation of vapor at low levels. WASTE DISPOSAL METHOD: Dispose of at appropriate waste facility in accordance with regulations. PRECAUTIONS IN STORAGE: Do not store where temperature may exceed 120 deg. F. Store away from fire, sparks, or flame. Store in suitable area for hazardous materials storage. 6. HEALTH HAZARD DATA SUGGESTED EXPOSURE GUIDELINE: 800ppm ROUTE EYES SKIN INHALATION CARCINOGENITY INGESTION EFFECT OF OVEREXPOSURE EMERGENCY FIRST AID PROCEDURE The gas phase is not expected to cause Flush with water and call physician. eye irritation. However the liquid can frostbite and burns. Contact with liquefied gas or gas under Treat burned skin or frostbitten pressure may cause skin burns and skin, by flushing or immersing frostbite. affected areas in lukewarm water and stimulate circulation with massage. Seek immediate medical attention. This product is asphyxiate and may Remove to fresh air. Artificial exhibit anesthetic properties at very high respiration, consult physician. concentrations. Initial symptoms at these concentrations are disorientation, lack of coordination, rapid respiration, headache, and nausea, Continued exposure may result in unconsciousness, coma, and possible death. None of the components in this material; None are listed by IARC, NTP, OSHA, or ACGIH as carcinogen. NONE Product is gaseous at normal temperature and pressure. Exhibited no cardiac or pulmonary function abnormalities. 7. SPRECIAL PROTECTION CONTROL MEASURES RESPIRATION PROTECTION: If TLV is exceeded wear NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing device or respirator. PROTECTIE GLOVES: None needed for normal use. Solvent resistant rubber type recommended for prolonged exposure. VENTILATION TYPE: Must be adequate to maintain vapors at less than 800 ppm, particularly at floor level as vapors are heavier than air. EYE PROTECTION: Safety glasses or goggles recommended. SPECIAL PRCAUTIONS: Do not use near heat, flame or sparks,. Avoid excessive breathing of vapor. Do not spray in direction of body. Use only in accordance with directions. The information contained herein is based on data considered accurate. However, no warranty, expressed or implied, is given regarding the accuracy of these data or the results to be obtained from the use thereof.
