- Remove to fresh air.
- Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed.
- If symptoms persist, call a physician
- Keep eyelids open to allow evaporation of product.
- Flush eyes with running water for several minutes, while keeping the eyelids wide open.
- If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.
- Allow to evaporate.
- Rinse with lukewarm running water.
- If symptoms persist, call a physician.
Ingestion is not a route of exposure.
Suitable extinguishing media
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
- Never use water.
Special exposure hazards in a fire
- Extremely flammable.
- Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.
- Heating can release hazardous gases.
- Gas/vapours are heavier than air and so may travel along the ground; remote ignition possible.
- Possible dangerous polymerization.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Intervention only by capable personnel who are trained and aware of the hazards of the product.
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- Fire fighters must wear fire resistant personnel protective equipment.
- Wear chemical resistant oversuit
- Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire.
- Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
- If safe to do so, remove the exposed containers, or cool with large quantities of water.
- Approach from upwind.
- Use a explosimeter/gas detector/oxygen analyser to determine the area of danger.
- Depending on wind direction, warn people of the danger of intoxication, close doors and windows,and switch off the ventilation.
- Never try to extinguish a leak of burning gas which cannot be stopped or controlled.
- Avoid spraying the leak source.
- After the fire, proceed rapidly to clean the surfaces exposed to the fumes in order to limit the damage to the equipment.
- As for any fire, ventilate and clean the rooms before re-entry.
- Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.
- Isolate the area.
- Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.
- Keep away from incompatible products
- Ventilate the area.
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
- Should not be released into the environment.
Methods for cleaning up
- Prevent product from entering drains.
- Carry out all operations in closed piping circuits and equipment.
- Use only in well-ventilated areas.
- Prevent product vapours decomposition from contacting hot spots.
- Use only equipment and materials which are compatible with the product.
- Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
- No sparking tools should be used.
- Do not use compressed air for transferring or handling the product.
- Purge piping circuits and equipment with nitrogen.
- Transfer using a pump equipped for collection and return of gas/vapour.
- in air
- Keep away from direct sunlight.
- Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place.
- Keep in container fitted with safety valve or vent.
- For further information, please contact: Supplier
- Ordinary steel
- No open flames or sparks, no smoking.
- Provide electrical equipment safe for hazardous locations.
- Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations.
- Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours).
- Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
- Warn people about the dangers of the product.
Exposure Limit Values
US ACGIH Threshold Limit Values TWA = 500 ppm
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure limits.
Occupational exposure controls
- In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
-Self-contained breathing apparatus in mediumconfinement/insufficient oxygen/in case of large uncontrolled emissions/in all circumstances when the mask and cartridge do not give adequate protection.
- In the case of hazardous fumes, wear self contained breathing apparatus.
- Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards.
- Wear suitable gloves.
- Recommended materials: Neoprene
- Chemical resistant goggles must be worn.
- If risk of splashing, chemical proof goggles/face shield.
Skin and body protection
- Apron/boots of neoprene if risk of splashing.
- Shower and eye wash stations.
- Gloves, overalls and boots have to be double layered (protection against cold temperature).
- Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Environmental exposure controls
- Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.
- Violent reaction with AlCl3 and with HCl on liquid form.
- Contact with strong bases or alkaline materials may provoke violent reactions or explosions.
- Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Conditions to avoid
- Naked flames, sparks.
Materials to avoid
- Alkaline earth metals
- Powdered metals
- Light and/or alkaline metals
- Oxidizing agents
- Strong bases
Hazardous decomposition products
- Hydrogen fluoride
- Carbon monoxide
Waste from residues / unused products
- In accordance with local and national regulations.
- Refer to manufacturer/supplier for information on recovery/recycling.
- To avoid treatments, as far as possible, use dedicated containers.
- Purge the container with nitrogen and direct the gas to a treatment plant.
