2- COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDENTS:
Contains no other components or impurities which will influence the classification of the product.
CAS Nr: Not applicable for preparations
3- HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION:
In high concentrations may cause asphyxiation.
Contact with liquid may cause cold burns/frost bite.
4- FIRST AID MEASURES:
In high concentrations may cause asphyxiation. Symptoms may include loss of mobility/consciousness. Victim may not
be aware of asphyxiation. Low concentrations of CO2 cause increased respiration and headache. Remove victim to
uncontaminated area wearing self contained breathing apparatus. Keep victim warm and rested. Call a doctor. Apply
artificial respiration if breathing stopped.
Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes. In case of frostbite spray with water for at least 15
minutes. Apply a sterile dressing. Obtain medical assistance.
Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.
5- FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES:
