First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

General advice: When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Symptoms may be delayed. Call a physician immediately.

Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical advice.

Ingestion: Call a physician or poison control centre immediately. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: Inhalation may provoke the following symptoms:, Irritation

Skin contact may provoke the following symptoms:, Irritation

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting: The product itself does not burn.

Hazardous combustion products: Carbon dioxide (CO2) Carbon monoxide hydrofluoric acid

Other hazardous decomposition products may be formed.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary. Use personal protective equipment.

Further information: Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions: Avoid breathing dust. Wear respiratory protection.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions: Do not discharge to streams, ponds, lakes or sewers. Avoid subsoil penetration.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up: Avoid dust formation. Clean up promptly by sweeping or vacuum. Pick up and transfer to properly labelled containers. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling: Avoid dust formation. Do not breathe vapours/dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat. Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating gases and vapours.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures: Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Dust must be extracted directly at the point of origin. Ensure that dust-handling systems (such as exhaust ducts, dust collectors, vessels, and processing equipment) are designed in a manner to prevent the escape of dust into the work area (i.e., there is no leakage from the equipment).

Eye protection: Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166

Hand protection: Impervious gloves Protective gloves should be worn when the potential exists for prolonged or repeated skin contact. Protective gloves complying with EN 374. Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).

Skin and body protection: Lightweight protective clothing Long sleeved shirt and long pants

Hygiene measures: Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Respiratory protection: Use respirator when performing operations involving potential exposure to vapour of the product. Respirator with combination filter for vapour/particulate (EN 141). Respirator with filter for organic vapour The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Stable under recommended storage conditions.

Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Stable under normal conditions.

Conditions to avoid: To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.

Incompatible materials: Strong bases

Hazardous decomposition products:

Carbon dioxide

Carbon monoxide

Hydrofluoric acid...%

Hydrochloric acid...%

Incompletely burned carbon products

Other hazardous decomposition products may be formed.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Product: Dispose of as hazardous waste in compliance with local and national regulations.

Contaminated packaging: If recycling is not practicable, dispose of in compliance with local regulations.
