Material Safety Data Sheet
Section I MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
|Supplier's Name___________________________||Emergency Phone Number____________________|
|Chemical Name: LIQUEFIED PETROLEUM GAS or PROPANE
CAS Registry No.: 74-98-6
Chemical Family: Hydrocarbon
Appearance and Odor: Vapor and liquid are colorless. Product contains an odorant (unpleasant odor).
WARNING: Danger! Extremely flammable. Compressed Gas Asphyxiant in high concentrations. Contact with liquid causes burns similar to frost bite. OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) 1000 ppm for an 8-hour workday.
Section II HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS
Hazardous Mixtures: Air with 2.15 to 9.60 percent propane
Section III PHYSICAL DATA
|Boiling Point: -44 ºF
Specific Gravity (H2O = 1): 0.51
Vapor Density (air = 1): 1.52
Solubility in Water: Slightly
|Vapor Pressure (PSIG) at 100 ºF: 205
Percent, Volatile by Volume (%): 100
Evaporation rate: Gas at normal ambient temperatures
Section IV FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD DATA
|Flash Point: 156 ºF(CC)
Flammable Limits - LFL: 2.15 UFL: 9.60
|Classification: Flammable Gas UN 1075
Extinguishing Media: Water spray-Class A-B-C or BC fire extinguisher.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Stop flow of gas. Use water to keep fire exposed containers cool. Use water spray to disperse unignited gas or vapor. If ignition has occurred and no water available, tank metal may weaken from overheating. Evacuate area. If gas has not ignited, LP-gas liquid or vapor may be dispersed by water spray or flooding.
Decomposition Products under Fire Conditions: Fumes, smoke, carbon monoxide, aldehydes and other decomposition products, in the case of incomplete combustion or when used as an engine fuel.
"EMPTY" Container Warning: "Empty" containers retain residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT WELD, BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION; THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. Do not attempt to clean since residue is difficult to remove. All containers should be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner and in accordance with governmental regulations.
Section V HEALTH HAZARD
OSHA P.E.L.: 1000 PPM ACGIH TLV: 1000 PPM Effects of Overexposure: Inhalation - concentrations can lead to symptoms ranging from dizziness to anesthesia and respiratory arrest. Eyes - moderate irritation. Emergency & First Aid procedures: Inhalation - remove to fresh air. Guard against self injury. Apply artificial respiration if breathing has stopped.
Section VI REACTIVITY DATA
Stable:__X __ Unstable:___________ Hazardous Decomposition Products: None____________
Incompatibility (materials to avoid): Mixing with oxygen or air, except at burner
Hazardous Polymerization: May occur__________ Will not occur___X ___
Section VII SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
Steps to be taken in case material is released: Keep public away. Shut off supply of gas. Eliminate sources of ignition. Ventilate the area. Disperse with water spray. Contact between skin and these gases in liquid form can cause freezing of tissue causing injury similar to thermal burn.
Waste Disposal Method: Controlled burning. Contact supplier.
Section VIII SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
Respiratory Protection: Stay out of gas or vapor (because of fire hazard).
Ventilation: Explosion-proof motors and keep sources of ignition at safe distances. Personal Protective Equipment and Apparel: Gloves resistant to the actions of LP-gases, goggles for protection against accidental release of pressurized products.
Section IX SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
Precautions to be taken when handling and storing: Keep containers away from heat sources and store in upright position. Containers should not be dropped. Keep container valve closed when not in use. Other Precaution: Install protective caps and plug container service valve when not connected for use.
