3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
Potential Health Effects
Inhalation of high concentrations of vapor is harmful and may cause
heart irregularities, unconsciousness or death. Intentional misuse
or deliberate inhalation may cause death without warning. Vapor
reduces oxygen available for breathing and is heavier than air.
Liquid contact can cause frostbite.
HUMAN HEALTH EFFECTS:
Overexposure to the vapors by inhalation may include temporary
nervous system depression with anesthetic effects such as
dizziness, headache, confusion, incoordination, and loss of
consciousness. Higher exposures to the vapors may cause temporary
alteration of the heart’s electrical activity with irregular pulse,
palpitations, or inadequate circulation. Gross overexposure may be
fatal. Skin contact with the liquid may cause frostbite.
Individuals with preexisting diseases of the central nervous or
cardiovascular system may have increased susceptibility to the
toxicity of increased exposures.
Experimental data have also been reported which indicate
combustibility of HFC-134a, a component in this blend, in the
presence of chlorine.
Use media appropriate for surrounding material.
FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
Cool tank/container with water spray. Self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA) is required if drums rupture and contents are
spilled under fire conditions.
Water runoff should be contained and neutralized prior to release.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
NOTE: Review FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES and HANDLING (PERSONNEL)
sections before proceeding with clean-up. Use appropriate PERSONAL
PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT during clean-up.
Accidental Release Measures
Ventilate area, especially low or enclosed places where heavy
vapors might collect. Remove open flames. Use self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) for large spills or releases.
Avoid breathing vapor. Avoid liquid contact with eyes and skin. Use
with sufficient ventilation to keep employee exposure below
recommended limits. Contact with chlorine or other strong oxidizing
agents should also be avoided. See Fire and Explosion Data section.
Store in a clean, dry place.
Do not heat above 52 deg C to avoid over pressurizing the
- EXOPSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Avoid breathing vapors. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. Use with
sufficient ventilation to keep employee exposure below the
recommended exposure limit. Local exhaust should be used if large
amounts are released. Mechanical ventilation should be used in low
or enclosed places.
