SAFETY DATA SHEETFM-200 (Fire Extinguishing Agent with Expellant)2.HAZARD IDENTIFICATIONResponseNoneStorageKeep container tightly closed.Protect from sunlight and store in well-ventilated place.DisposalNoneOther HazardsDirect contact with the cold gas or liquid can cause freezing of exposed tissues. Exposure to vapor athigh concentrations can cause cardiac sensitization and suffocation if air is displaced by vapors.Specific Concentration LimitsThe values listed below represent the percentages of ingredients of unknown toxicity.Acute oral toxicity0%Acute dermal toxicity0%Acute inhalation toxicity0%Acute aquatic toxicity0%3.COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTSSynonyms: HeptafluoropropaneThis product is a eCAS Number431-89-0Concentration 99.9%Note: The expellant is nitrogen.4.FIRST- AID MEASURESDescription of necessary first-aid measuresEyesImmediately flood the eye with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eye open. Obtainmedical attention if soreness or redness persists.SkinFlush with water. Obtain medical attention if frostbite or blistering occurs or redness persists.IngestionIngestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.InhalationRemove from exposure. If there is difficulty in breathing, give oxygen. Obtain medical attentionimmediately.Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayedAside from the information found under Description of necessary first aid measures (above) andIndication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, no additional symptoms andeffects are anticipated.Revision Date: April 10, 2015Page 2 of 8

SAFETY DATA SHEETFM-200 (Fire Extinguishing Agent with Expellant)4.FIRST- AID MEASURESIndication of immediate medical attention and special treatment neededNotes to PhysiciansIn case of frostbite, place the frostbitten part in warm water. If warm water is not available or impracticalto use, wrap the affected parts gently in blankets. DO NOT USE HOT WATER.The use of epinephrine or similar compounds can increase susceptibility to heart irregularities caused byexcessive exposure to these types of compounds.5.FIRE - FIGHTING MEASURESSuitable Extinguishing MediaFM-200 is used as an extinguishing agent and therefore is not a problem when trying to control a blaze.Use extinguishing agent appropriate to other materials involved. Keep containers and surroundings coolwith water spray as containers may rupture or burst in the heat of a fire.Specific hazards arising from the chemicalContainers may explode in heat of fire.Special Protective Actions for Fire-FightersWear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus as appropriate for specific fireconditions.6.ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURESPersonal precautions, protective equipment and emergency proceduresWear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus. Remove leaking cylinder to a safeplace. Ventilate the area. Leaks inside confined spaces may cause suffocation as vapors may displaceair, and should not be entered without a self-contained breathing apparatus.Environmental PrecautionsPrevent the material from being released into the environment.Methods and materials for containment and cleaning upMaterial evaporates.7.HANDLING AND STORAGEPrecautions for safe handlingWear appropriate protective clothing. Prevent skin and eye contact.Conditions for safe storagePressurized containers should be properly stored and secured to prevent falling or being knocked over.Do not drag, slide or pressurized containers. Do not drop pressurized containers or permit them to strikeagainst each other. Never apply flame or localized heat directly to any part of the pressurized or plasticcontainer. Store pressurized and plastic containers away from high heat sources. Storage area shouldbe: - cool - dry - well ventilated - under cover - out of direct sunlightRevision Date: April 10, 2015Page 3 of 8

There should be local procedures for the selection, training, inspectionand maintenance of this equipment. When used in large volumes or odor becomes apparent, use localexhaust ventilation.Individual protection measuresRespiratory ProtectionNot normally required under conditions of use as a portable fire extinguisher. For other applicationscreating oxygen deficient atmospheres, use a self contained breathing apparatus, as an air purifyingrespirator will not provide protection.Skin ProtectionWear rubber gloves. Avoid contact with skin.Eye/Face ProtectionChemical goggles or safety glasses with side shields. Avoid contact with eyes.Body ProtectionNormal work wear.9.PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIESAgent – FM-200 AppearancePhysical StateColorOdorOdor ThresholdpHSpecific GravityBoiling Range/Point ( C/F)Melting Point ( C/F)Flash Point (PMCC) ( C/F)Vapor PressureEvaporation Rate (BuAc 1)Solubility in WaterVapor Density (Air 1)VOC (%)Partition coefficient (noctanol/water)ViscosityAuto-ignition TemperatureDecomposition TemperatureRevision Date: April 10, 2015Liquefied gas under pressureColorlessSlight ether likeNo data availableNeutral1.46-16.4oC/3 oF-129.5oC/265 oFNot flammable540 hPa at -30 C29,360 hPa at 123 CNot applicable0.23 g/l at 25oC5.8Not applicable2289Not applicableNo data availableNo data availablePage 4 of 8
