CAS RN: 463-82-1

NFPA Hazard Classification

2,2-Dimethylpropane

Flammability: 4
Health: 2Instability: 0
Special: None

Health: 2 (Moderate)
Materials that, on intense or continued (but not chronic) exposure, could cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury, including those requiring the use of respiratory protective equipment that has an independent air supply. These materials are hazardous to health, but areas may be entered freely if personnel are provided with full-face mask self-contained breathing apparatus that provides complete eye protection.

Flammability: 4 (Extreme)
This degree includes flammable gases, flammable cryogenic materials, pyrophoric liquids, and Class IA flammable liquids. The preferred method of fire attack is to stop the flow of material or to protect exposures while allowing the fire to burn itself out.

Instability: 0 (Minimal)
This degree includes materials that are normally stable, even under fire exposure conditions, and that do not react with water. Normal fire fighting procedures may be used.
