Section 3 - Hazards Identification
Appearance: Clear, colorless gas
Caution! Eye contact may result in permanent eye damage. Vapor reduces oxygen
available for breathing. May cause skin and respiratory tract irritation. May cause
frostbite. May cause central nervous system depression.
Target Organs: Central nervous system, Eyes
Potential Health Effects
May cause eye irritation.
Prolonged and/or repeated contact may cause defatting of the skin and dermatitis. May cause frostbite.
May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
Vapor reduces oxygen available for breathing. May cause dyspnea (difficult or labored breathing). May
cause cardiac abnormalities. Inhalation overexposure may lead to central nervous system depression,
producing effects such as dizziness, headache, confusion, incoordination, nausea, weakness, and loss of
consciousness. Extreme exposures may cause other CNS effects including death.
Repeated exposure may cause central nervous system damage. Chronic hydrocarbon abuse (for example,
sniffing glue or light hydrocarbons such as contained in this material) has been associated with irregular
heart rhythms and potential cardiac arrest.
