Hydrogen chloride (HCl)

- Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighting
Use self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear suitable personal protective equipment.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Keep away sources of ignition.

- Environmental precautions
Do not allow to enter drains or waterways

- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Pick up mechanically. Rinse away rest with warm water.
Pick up with absorbent material (eg sand, sawdust). Rinse away rest with water


Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling
- Advice on safe handling
Use only in well ventilated areas.
Open and handle container with care.
Hygiene measures
Wash hands before breaks and after work.
Use barrier skin cream.
Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Traces of flammable substances can collect in the vapour space of closed systems, therefore keep sources of ignition away.
Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charges, e.g earthing during loading and off-loading operations.
Keep away from sources of ignition - refrain from smoking.
Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection


- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
- Advice on storage compatibility
Do not store with alkalies
Further information on storage conditions

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Control parameters
Exposure limit values
Exposure limit values are not available.

- Exposure controls
- General protective measures
Do not inhale vapours
Avoid contact with skin
Avoid contact with eyes

- Respiratory protection : Use respiratory protection in case of insufficient exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure
Full mask to standard DIN EN 136
Filter A (organic gases and vapours) to standard DIN EN 141
The use of filter apparatus presupposes that the environment atmosphere contains at least 17% oxygen by volume, and does not exceed the maximum gas concentration, usually 0.5% by volume. Relevant guidelines to be considered include EN 136/141/143/371/372 as well as other national
regulations.

Hand protection : For long-term exposure:
Butyl rubber gloves.
Minimum thickness / gloves 0,7 mm
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.
For short-term exposure (splash protection):
Nitrile rubber gloves.
Minimum thickness / gloves 0,4 mm
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.
These types of protective gloves are offered by various manufacturers. Please note the manufacturers´ detailed statements, especially about the minimum thickness and the minimum breakthrough time. Consider also the particular working conditions under which the gloves are being used.

Eye protection : Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face
shield.)

Body protection : Depending on the degree of hazard, when handling corrosive substances, aprons, boots or full protective clothing made of
suitable materials (e.g. rubberized or PVC-coated) must also be worn.

- Hygiene measures
Wash hands before breaks and after work.
Use barrier skin cream.
Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again
