First-aid measures

- General advice: First aider needs to protect himself. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Victim to lie down in the recovery position, cover and keep him warm. Call a physician immediately.
- Inhalation : Move to fresh air. Call a physician immediately.
- Skin contact : Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water. First treatment with calcium gluconate paste. Call a physician immediately.
- Eye contact : Protect unharmed eye. Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water, also under the eyelids. Call a physician immediately.
- Ingestion : A person suspected to have swallowed the substance who is conscious should be given water to drink. Take to a doctor immediately together with this card

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry powder
- Specific hazards during fire fighting: Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health. Fire may cause evolution of: Hydrogen fluoride
- Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- Further information : Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. The product itself does not burn. Standard procedure for chemical fires.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid dust formation.
- Environmental precautions : Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly while observing environmental regulations. Try to prevent the material from entering drains or water courses. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
- Methods for cleaning up : Use mechanical handling equipment. Avoid dust formation. Pick for disposal in tightly closed containers. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Handling and storage

Handling
- Advice on safe handling: Exhaust ventilation at the object is necessary. Vent waste air to atmosphere only through suitable separators. Avoid formation of respirable particles.
- Advice on protection against fire and explosion: No special precautions required.
- Hygiene measures : Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing. Keep working clothes separately. Separate rooms are required for washing, showering and changing clothes.

Storage
- Further information on storage conditions: Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
- Advice on common storage : Do not store together with: Acids

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Occupational exposure limits:
IOELV: 2.5 mg/m³ based on fluoride
Adopted as a DNEL under REACH. Corresponds to 5.2 mg K2TiF6/m³.


- Occupational exposure controls: Do not breathe dust. The Personal Protective Equipment must be in accordance with EN standards:respirator EN 136, 140, 149; safety glasses EN 166; protective suit: EN 340, 463, 468, 943-1, 943-2; gloves EN 374, safety shoes EN-ISO 20345. Always have on hand a first-aid kit, together with proper instructions.
- Environmental exposure controls: Handle in accordance with local environmental regulations and good industrial practices.
- Engineering measures: Local exhaust
- Personal protective equipment: Respiratory protection : Full mask, P3, Remarks: In the case of dust or aerosol formation use respirator with an approved filter.
- Hand protection: Glove material: Natural Latex, Break through time: > 480 min, Glove thickness: 0,6 mm, Lapren®706, Remarks: Supplementary note: The specifications are based on information and tests from similar substances by analogy. Due to varying conditions ( e.g.temperature or other strains) it must be considered that the usage of a chemical protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374. Since actual conditions of practical use often deviate from standardised conditions according EN 374 the glove manufacturer reccomends to use the chemical protective glove in practice not longer than 50% of the recomended permeation time. Manufacturer´s directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types. Suitable gloves tested according EN 374 are supplied e.g. from KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Vertrieb@kcl.de.
- Eye protection: see respiratory protection
- Skin and body protection: impervious clothing

Stability and reactivity

- Conditions to avoid: Heating will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting
- Materials to avoid: Contact with strong acids liberates hydrogen fluoride.
- Hazardous decomposition products: Hydrogen fluoride
- Stability and reactivity : No decomposition if used as directed., Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages.

Disposal considerations

- Product: Dispose according to legal requirements.
- Packaging: Legal requirements are to be considered in regard of reuse or disposal of used packaging materials
- Further information: Provisions relating to waste: EC Directive 2006/12/EC; 91/689/EEC Regulation No. 1013/2006
