Section 2. Hazards identification
Physical state
Emergency overview

: Gas.
: DANGER!
GAS:
OXIDIZER.
CONTACT WITH COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL MAY CAUSE FIRE.
CONTENTS UNDER PRESURE.
Do not puncture or incinerate container.
May cause severe frostbite.
LIQUID:
OXIDIZER.
CONTACT WITH COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL MAY CAUSE FIRE.
Extremely cold liquid and gas under pressure.
May cause severe frostbite.
Do not puncture or incinerate container. Store in tightly-closed container. Avoid contact with combustible materials.
Contact with rapidly expanding gases or liquids can cause frostbite. : Inhalation

Routes of entry
Potential acute health effects
Eyes
: May cause eye irritation. Contact with rapidly expanding gas may cause burns or frostbite. Contact with cryogenic liquid can cause frostbite and cryogenic burns. Skin
: May cause skin irritation. Contact with rapidly expanding gas may cause burns or frostbite. Contact with cryogenic liquid can cause frostbite and cryogenic burns. Inhalation
: Respiratory system irritation after overexposure to high oxygen concentrations. Ingestion
Medical conditions
aggravated by overexposure

: Ingestion is not a normal route of exposure for gases. Contact with cryogenic liquid can cause frostbite and cryogenic burns.
: Acute or chronic respiratory conditions may be aggravated by overexposure to this gas.

Section 4. First aid measures
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus.It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Eye contact
: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin contact
: None expected.
Frostbite
: Try to warm up the frozen tissues and seek medical attention. Inhalation
: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Get medical attention.
Ingestion
: As this product is a gas, refer to the inhalation section.

Special protective
equipment for fire-fighters

: Non-flammable.
: No specific data.
: Extremely flammable in the presence of the following materials or conditions: reducing materials, combustible materials and organic materials.
: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire. Apply water from a safe distance to cool container and protect surrounding area. If involved in fire, shut off flow immediately if it can be done without risk. Contains gas under pressure. Contact with combustible material may cause fire. This material increases the risk of fire and may aid combustion. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst or explode. : Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full...
