First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove patient immediately to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, give artifical respiration. Use oxygen as required, provided a qualified operator is available. Do not give epinedrine (adrenaline). Contact a physician.

Eyes: Remove contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting eyelids occasionally to facilitate irrigation. Seek medical attention.

Skin: Promptly flush skin with water until all chemical is removed. remove any clothing contaminated with liquid and wash before reuse.

Ingestion: Ingestion is an unlikely route of exposure. Refer to the inhalation section. Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to by a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use any standard agent - choose the one most appropriate for the type of surrounding fire. As for special firefighting instructions, fireighters should use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool and to knock down vapours which may result from product decomposition.

Product arising from burning: Halogens, halogen acids and possibly carbonyl halides are decomposition products. These are toxic and corrosive. Hazardous polymerizations will not occur. A source of ignition, such as lighted cigarettes, flames, hot spots, welding or fire conditions may yield toxic and/or corrosive composition products.


Protective equipment: Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus for protection against suffocation and possible toxic decomposition products - proper eye and skin protection should be provided.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Always wear recommended personal protective equipment. Evacuate all unprotected personnel. Protected personnel should remove any flames and shut off leak, if without risk, and provide ventilation. Unprotected personnel should not return until air has been tested and determined safe, including low-lying areas.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid breathing vapours or liquid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. Do not puncture or drop containers, expose them to open
flame, excessive heat or direct sunlight. Use approved cylinders only. Tank cleaning personnel should use only a formal tank entry procedure based on recognized safety principles. Leak testing should not be done with a pressurized mixture of HFC-254fa and air. Use dry nitrogen to leak test equipment pressurized with HFC-245fa.

Storage: Due to low boiling point of 15 °C, store in a cool, well-ventillated area of low fire risk. Protect container and its fittings from physical damage. Storage in subsurface locations should be avoided. Close valve tightly after use and when empty.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Skin protection: Wear protective, impervious gloves and clothing if prolonged or repeated contact with liquid is anticipated. Wash clothing promptly, if wet. Remove any non-impervious clothing and wash before re-use.

Eye protection: For normal conditions, wear safety glasses. Where there is reasonable probability of liquid contact, wear chemical safety goggles. Contact lenses should not be worn under such conditions.

Respiratory Protection: None generally required for adequately ventilated work situations. For accidential releases in non-ventilated situations, use self-contained breathing apparatus.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid: Heating will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting. do not pierce or burn, even after use. do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material.

Materials to avoid: oxidizing substances, powdered metals, alkali sensitive materials.

Hazardous decomposition products: halogenated compounds, hydrogen fluoride, carbonyl halides, carbon oxides.

Disposal considerations

Offer surplus and non-recyclable soluctions to a licensed disposal company. Refer to manufacturer/supplier for information on recovery/recyling.
