Ammonia is one of the most common and advantageous refrigerants in the world. But for all its benefits, ammonia in both its liquid and gas forms is potentially hazardous. Acutely toxic, corrosive, and reactive, it can cause death and damage the skin, eyes and respiratory system, especially in highly concentrated levels. It is flammable and explosive under certain conditions, and can destroy equipment that contains zinc, copper, brass, and bronze, as well as various types of plastic and rubber.
