Spills or Leaks

If a large release of vapors occurs, such as from a large leak or spill, the vapors may concentrate near the floor or in subfloor areas and displace the oxygen available for breathing, causing suffocation.

Evacuate everyone until the area has been well ventilated. Use blowers or fans to circulate the air at floor level. Do not re-enter the affected area without self-contained breathing apparatus or unless the area has been monitored to indicate that the concentration of heptafluoropropane (FM-200®) vapors in the area is below the AEL of 1000 ppm.
