Gas/air mixtures are explosive. Risk of fire and explosion as a result of violent decomposition when heated. Exposure Harmful when inhaled; causes severe skin and eye irritation or burns; carcinogenic to humans Route of Exposure: Inhalation, skin Chemical Dangers : May polymerize due to heating, under the influence of acids, bases, metal chlorides and metal oxides with fire or explosion hazard. Decomposes on heating above 500 ° C, causing fire and explosion hazard. Reacts violently with many compounds. Metal fittings containing silver, copper, mercury, or magnesium should not be used since they may react with impurities in the gas to form explosive compounds. Physical Dangers : Gas is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.
