|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Highly flammable. Cylinder may explode in heat of fire. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with air. See Chemical Dangers. Gas/air mixtures are explosive.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. NO contact with air. Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Use non-sparking handtools.||Evacuate area, fight fires only from an explosion-resistant location. Shut off supply; if not possible and no risk to surroundings, let the fire burn itself out. In other cases extinguish with water spray. In case of fire: keep cylinder cool by spraying with water.|
|AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|Inhalation||Dizziness. Headache. Visual disturbances. Suffocation. Unconsciousness.||Use ventilation.||Fresh air, rest. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell.|
|Skin||ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE.||Cold-insulating gloves. Protective clothing.||ON FROSTBITE: rinse with plenty of water, do NOT remove clothes. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
