Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
- Water
- powder
- Foam
- Dry chemical
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Unsuitable extinguishing media
- None.

Specific hazards arising from the chemical
- The product is not flammable.
- Not explosive
- The pressure in sealed containers can increase under the influence of heat.
- Explosive reaction may occur on heating or burning.
- In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as: Gaseous hydrogen fluoride (HF), Fluorophosgene

Special protective actions for fire-fighters
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- When intervention in close proximity wear acid resistant over suit.
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Approach from upwind.
- Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire.
- Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.
- Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Advice for non-emergency personnel
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Advice for emergency responders
- The product evaporates readily.
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.
- Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions
- Should not be released into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
- Allow to evaporate.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Use personal protective equipment.
- Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
- To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.
- Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
- Clean and dry piping circuits and equipment before any operations.
- Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations.
Conditions for storage, including incompatibilities

Storage
- Keep in properly labelled containers.
- Keep in container fitted with safety valve or vent.

Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
- Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
- Keep away from combustible material.
- Keep away from Incompatible products.
- Provide tight electrical equipment well protected against corrosion.

Packaging material
Suitable material
- Warning! Container under pressure.
- Stainless steel
- Carbon steel

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure limits.

2. Organisational protection measures
- Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
- When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.
- Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
- Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

3. Hand protection
- Rubber gloves
- 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).

4. Feet protection
- safety shoes

5. Body protection
- Long sleeved clothing
- Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the specific work-place.

6. Eye protection
- Tightly fitting safety goggles

7. Respiratory protection
- Use respirator when performing operations involving potential exposure to vapour of the product.
- 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.
- Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards.
- Remove respiratory and skin/eye protection only after vapours have been cleared from the area.

Stability and reactivity

1. Reactivity
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

2. Chemical stability
Stable under recommended storage conditions.

3. Possibility of hazardous reactions
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

4. Conditions to avoid
- To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.
- Keep away from flames and sparks.

5. Incompatible materials
- Alkali metals, Alkaline earth metals, Aluminum and magnesium in powder form, Zinc
- Zinc, Aluminum and magnesium in powder form

6. Hazardous decomposition products
