1. Product Identification
2. Composition/Information on Ingredients
Ingredient CAS No Percent Hazardous
Ozone gas 10028-15-6 1 - 15% Yes
3. Hazards Identification
Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent and oxidation with ozone evolves more heat and usually starts at a lower temperature than oxidation with oxygen. It reacts with non-saturated organic compounds to produce ozonides, which are unstable and may decompose with explosive violence. Ozone is an unstable gas which, at normal temperatures, decomposes to diatomic oxygen. At elevated temperatures and in the presence of certain catalysts such as hydrogen, iron, copper and chromium, this decomposition may be explosive.
Skin: Absorption through intact skin is not expected.
Eye Contact: Ozone is an irritant to the eyes causing pain, lacrimation, and general inflammation.
Not a route of exposure.
4. First Aid Measures
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Flammable Limits in air, % by volume - Upper: N/D Lower: N/D
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazard: None expected. Since ozone is highly unstable and decomposes under all conditions and is not encountered except at very small levels in the immediate vicinity where formed.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Evacuate danger area. Open doors and windows to allow area to ventilate. Consult an expert.
Ozone should be contained within a chemically compatible piping system.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Specific Personal Protective Equipment
Only appropriate respirators shall be provided and used when the use of respirators is the only means of controlling exposure for routine operations, or during an emergency. (Refer to Table 1 of ANSUI/ASTM E591-77 for appropriate respirator selection ).
Positive pressure air line with mask or self-contained breathing apparatus should be available for emergency use.

11. Toxicological Information
Ozone is extremely irritating to the upper and lower respiratory tract. The characteristic odor is readily detectable at low concentrations ( 0.02 ppm to 0.05 ppm). Ozone produces local irritation of the eyes and mucous membranes and may cause pulmonary edema at high exposure. Systematically, ozone has been reported to mimic the effects of ionizing radiation, and may cause damage to chromosomal structures. A partial tolerance appears to develop with repeated exposures. Although most effects are acute, the possibility of chronic lung impairment should be considered, based upon animal experimentation.

13. Disposal Considerations
Do not dispose of ozone off gas to atmosphere without properly designed off gas destruct unit. State and local disposal regulations may differ from federal disposal regulations.
