3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
Note: This product has not been tested by Texican Crude & Hydrocarbons, LLC to determine its specific health hazards. Therefore, the information provided in this section includes health hazard information on the product components.
Potential Health Effects From Overexposure
Eyes: Eye irritation, direct contact may cause burns or frostbite.
Skin: Irritation, direct contact may cause burns or frostbite.
Inhalation: Weakness, headache, confusion, blurred vision, drowsiness, suffocation, nausea and/or other nervous system effects. Continued exposure may result in dizziness, slurred speech, flushed face, unconsciousness, or convulsions. High concentrations may affect heart and cause respiratory depression.
Ingestion: Not Applicable.
Additional Medical and Toxicological Information:
Liquefied Petroleum Gas will displace oxygen and is considered a simple asphyxiant. (Note of Physicians) Due to increased risk of eliciting cardiac dysrhythmias, catecholamine drugs, such as epinephrine, should be used with special caution in situations of emergency life support. Arrhythmias have been reported in animals exposed to high concentrations and given epinephrine. Medical providers are urged to contact a Regional Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222).
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Eye Contact: If liquid propane contacts the eye, immediately flush with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, including under the eyelids. Speed and thoroughness in rising eyes are important to avoid permanent injury. Seek immediate medical attention.
Skin Contact: If freezing of the skin has occurred, flush the affected area with large amounts of soapy tepid water for 15 to 20 minutes. If freeze burns have
occurred, loosely apply bulky, dry, sterile bandage to protect affected area. Do not rub affected area. Get immediate medical attention.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, apply artificial respiration. Get immediate medical attention.
Ingestion: None considered necessary.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash Point: N/A (-58 to -306oF) Flammable Limits in Air, % by Volume:
Autoignition Temperature: >260oC
Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, foam, or carbon dioxide. NFPA Hazard Ratings (liquefied petroleum gas):
Health: 1 Flammability: 4 reactivity: 0
Gas may flow on the surface for a considerable distance, reach an ignition source, and flash back. It can be a dangerous fire and explosion hazard when mixed with air. Continue cooling containers with water after fire has been extinguished. This product is heavier than air and will tend to accumulate in low- lying areas.
Fire Fighting Instructions:
Water may be ineffective on flames but should be used to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Do not completely extinguish flames unless gas flow is shut off or an explosive gas-air mixture may form and ignite without warning. Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE
Remove sources of heat or ignition including internal combustion engines and power tools. Stop gas flow. Ventilate the area. Keep people away. Stay upwind of release and allow release to evaporate to atmosphere and warn people downwind of possible explosion. This product is heavier than air and will tend to accumulate in low-lying areas. Avoid breathing the gas, where self-contained breathing apparatus if conditions warrant. Equipment used for cleanup must be explosion proof/intrinsically safe and suitable for flammable liquid and vapor.
7. HANDLING & STORAGE
Store and use in a cool, dry, well ventilated area, away from direct sunlight and incompatible materials or sources of heat and ignition. No smoking in areas of storage or use. Electrically bond and ground storage and transfer lines and equipment. Transfer high-pressure liquid and gas in approved systems. Keep away from oxidizing agents and cylinders of oxygen on chlorine. Empty tanks may contain residue (gas). Do not 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.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROL, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Eye Protection: Remove contact lenses and wear chemical safety glasses, safety goggles or face shield (with safety goggles or safety glasses) that meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 where contact with compressed gas/liquid may occur.
Skin Protection: Wear insulating gloves and protective clothing when contact with compressed gas may occur.
Inhalation: Use approved respiratory protective equipment for cleaning large spills or upon entry into large tanks, vessels, and other designated confined spaces or in any situation where airborne concentrations may exceed occupational exposure limits. In situations where the airborne concentration of oxygen may be below 20.9% approved supplied-air respiratory protection should be worn. Warning! Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
general and local
chemical concentrations below applicable exposure limits, (2) to prevent accumulation of flammable vapors and formation of explosive atmospheres, and (3) to prevent formation of oxygen deficient atmospheres, especially in confined spaces. [Note: this
product can displace oxygen in enclosed areas.]

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING
Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm may be found in crude oil and petroleum products. Although it is possible to sufficiently refine a crude oil or its end products to remove the potential for cancer, we are advising that one or more of the listed chemicals may be present in some detectable quantities. Read and follow directions and use care when handling crude oil and petroleum products.
