First-aid measures

No special precautions are necessary for first aid responders.
If inhaled: remove to fresh air, and get medical attention if symptoms occur.
In case of skin contact: Wash with water and soap as a precaution. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
In case of eye contact: Flush eyes with water as a precaution. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.
If swallowed: If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: May cause cardiac arrhythmia.
Other symptoms potentially related to misuse or inhalation abuse are:
Cardiac sensitisation
Anaesthetic effects
Lack of coordination

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Not applicable, Will not burn
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Not applicable, Will not burn

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire-fighting: Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.
Hazardous combustion products: Hydrogen fluoride
carbonyl fluoride
Carbon oxides
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary. Use personal protective equipment.
Specific extinguishing methods : Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Remove undamaged containers from fire area if it is safe to do so.
Evacuate area.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions: Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment recommendations.

Environmental precautions: Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers).
Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.
Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.
Methods for cleaning up : Soak up with inert absorbent material.
For large spills, provide dyking or other appropriate containment to keep material from spreading. If dyked material can be pumped, store recovered material in appropriate container.
Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable absorbent.
Local or national regulations may apply to releases and disposal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases.

Handling and storage

Local/Total ventilation: Use only with adequate ventilation.

Advice on safe handling: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice, based on the results of the workplace exposure assessment
Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the environment.
Valve protection caps and valve outlet threaded plugs must remain in place unless container is secured with valve outlet piped to use point.
Use a check valve or trap in the discharge line to prevent hazardous back flow into the cylinder.
Use a pressure reducing regulator when connecting cylinder to lower pressure (<3000 psig) piping or systems.
Never attempt to lift cylinder by its cap.
Do not drag, slide or roll cylinders.
Use a suitable hand truck for cylinder movement.

Hygiene measures: Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Cylinders should be stored upright and firmly secured to prevent falling or being knocked over. Separate full containers from empty containers. Do not store near combustible materials. Avoid area where salt or other corrosive materials are present. Do not expose drums to direct heat or temperature above 46°C (115°F) to avoid pressurizing and possibly distorting the drums. Material should not be dispensed by pour-ing from pail/drum shipping containers containing 5 gallons or more. The use of a drum pump is recommended for dispens-ing from pail/drum shipping containers with 5 gallons or more, except for smaller containers where adequate ventilation can be used to manage the exposure. Keep in properly labelled containers. Store in accordance with the particular national regulations.
Advice on common storage:
No special restrictions on storage with other products.

Storage period: > 10 yr
Recommended storage temperature: < 46 °C
Further information on storage stability: The product has an indefinite shelf life when stored properly.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.
Engineering measures
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas
Minimize workplace exposure concentrations.
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection:
Wear the following personal protective equipment: Safety glasses

Hand protection Material : Low temperature resistant gloves
Remarks: Choose gloves to protect hands against chemicals depending on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous substance and specific to place of work. For special applications, we recommend clarifying the resistance to chemicals of the aforementioned protective gloves with the glove manufacturer. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Breakthrough time is not determined for the product. Change gloves often!

Skin and body protection: Skin should be washed after contact.
