Product Use: This SDS is limited to ozone produced in gaseous form on site by an ozone generator, in varying concentrations, in either air or aqueous solution, for the purposes of odor abatement, oxidation of organic compounds, or antimicrobial intervention, in a variety of applications.
2. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
|Oxidizing Gas||Skin Irritation – Category 3
Eye Irritation – Category 2B
Respiratory System Toxicity – Category 1
(Single & Repeated)
|Acute Aquatic Toxicity – Category I|
NOTE: Severe respiratory toxicity will develop before skin or eye irritation go beyond listed categories. Anyone with chronic pulmonary problems, especially asthma, should avoid exposure to ozone.
WHMIS Classifications (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, Canada): C, D1A, D2A, D2B, F

4. FIRST AID MEASURES
|Route of Entry||Symptoms||First Aid|
|Skin Contact||YES||Irritation||Rinse with water|
|Eye Contact||YES||Irritation||Rinse with water,
|Inhalation||YES||Headache, cough, heavy chest, shortness of breath||Remove to fresh air, provide oxygen therapy
For severe cases, or if symptoms don’t improve, seek medical help.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Ozone itself is not flammable. As a strong oxidant it may accelerate, even initiate, combustion, or cause explosions. Use whatever extinguishing agents are indicated for the burning materials.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Turn off the ozone generator, and ventilate the area. Evacuate until ozone levels subside to a safe level (<0.1 ppm).
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Ozone must be contained within ozone-resistant tubing and pipes from the generation point to the application point.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit: 8 hour TWA 0.1 ppm
ANSI/ASTM: 8 hour TWA 0.1 ppm, STEL 0.3 ppm
ACGIH: 8 hour TWA 0.1 ppm; STEL 0.3 ppm
NIOSH: ELCV 0.1 ppm light; 0.08 ppm moderate; 0.05 ppm, heavy Light, moderate, heavy work TWA <= 2 hours: 0.2 ppm Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) 5 ppm
Respiratory Protection: Use full face self-contained breathing apparatus for entering areas with a high concentration of ozone.
Engineering control: Use ozone destruct unit for off gassing of ozone.

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Ozone is highly unstable and highly reactive. Avoid contact with oxidizable substances. Ozone will readily react and spontaneously decompose under normal ambient temperatures.
11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Likely routes of exposure: inhalation, eyes, skin exposure.
Effects of Acute Exposure: Discomfort, including headache, coughing, dry throat, shortness of breath, pulmonary edema; higher levels of exposure intensify symptoms. Possible irritation of skin and/or eyes.
Effects of Chronic Exposure: Similar to acute exposure effects, with possible development of chronic breathing disorders, including asthma.
LC50: mice, 12.6 ppm for 3 hours; hamsters, 35.5 ppm for 3 hours
|Irritancy of Ozone||YES|
|Sensitization to Ozone||NO|
|Carcinogenicity (NTP, IARC, OSHA)||NO|
Teratogenicity, Mutagen city
|Toxicologically Synergistic Products||Increased susceptibility to allergens, pathogens, irritants|
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
The immediate surrounding area may be adversely affected by an ozone release, particularly plant life. Discharge of ozone in water solution may be harmful to aquatic life. Due to natural decomposition, bioaccumulation will not occur, and the area affected will be limited.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Off-gassing of ozone should be through an ozone destruct unit which breaks ozone down to oxygen before release into the atmosphere.
14. TRANSPORT INFORMATION
NOT APPLICABLE, as ozone is unstable and either reacts or decomposes, and must be generated at the location and time of use.
15. REGULATORY INFORMATION
SARA Title III Section 302 EHS TPQ: 100 lbs.
SARA Title III Section 304, EHS RQ: 100 lbs.
SARA Title III Section 313: > 10,000 lbs. used/year.

16. OTHER INFORMATION
Half-life of ozone in water at 20⁰C = 20 min; in dry still air at 24⁰C = 25 hr; decreases significantly with increase in humidity, presence of contaminants, air movement, and/or increase in temperature.
