SECTION 2- Hazardous Information

   Emergency Overview: CAUTION: Contents under pressure-Container may explode if heated.  Can decompose

                                    At high temperatures forming toxic gases.


Potential Health Effects:  Routes of Exposure: Eyes, Skin contacts, Inhalation


 Skin                             Contact with liquid can cause cold burns and frostbite.

                                    May cause skin  irritation.

                                    May cause: Discomfort, itching, redness, or swelling.


 Eyes                             Contact with liquid can cause cold burns and frostbite.

                                    May cause eye irritation.

                                    May cause: tearing, Redness, Discomfort.


 Inhalation                      Misuse or intentional inhalation abuse may cause death without warning symptoms, due to cardiac effects.

                                    Other symptoms potentially related to misuse or inhalation heartbeat with strange sensation

                                     in the chest, heart thumping, apprehension, feeling of fainting, dizziness or weakness.

                                    Vapors are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.

SECTION 4-First Aid Measures


Skin:                             Treat frostbite by immediately immersing affected areas in warm water until skin has warmed up and turned pink.

Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Obtain medical attention immediately.


Eye contact:                    In case of contact,  remove contact lenses if applicable  and immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician if necessary.


Inhalation:                      Remove from exposure, lie down. Move to fresh air. Keep patient warm and rest. Artificial respiration                                            and/or oxygen may be necessary. Consult a physician. If breathing has stopped trained personnel should

administer CPR immediately.


Ingestion:                       Is not considered a potential route of exposure.


General advice:                Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt                                                  seek medical advice. Do not puncture or incinerate container. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

                                    Keep out of reach of children.


Notes to Physician:          Because of possible disturbances of cardiac rhythm, catecholamine drugs, such as epinephrine, that may                                                      be used in situations of emergency life support should be used with special caution. Treat symptomatically.
