First-aid measures

General advice: In the case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice
immediately.
When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical
advice.
Protection of first-aiders: First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection,
and use the recommended personal protective equipment
when the potential for exposure exists.

If inhaled: If inhaled, remove to fresh air.
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

Risks : May cause damage to organs through prolonged or repeated
exposure if swallowed.

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

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical

Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known.

Specific hazards during firefighting: Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.
Hazardous combustion products: Hydrogen fluoride
carbonyl fluoride
potentially toxic fluorinated compounds
aerosolized particulates
Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Use personal protective equipment.
Specific extinguishing methods: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances
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: Use personal protective equipment.
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. You will need to determine
which regulations are applicable.

Handling and storage

Technical measures: See Engineering measures under EXPOSURE
CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION section.
Local/Total ventilation: Use only with adequate ventilation.
Advice on safe handling: Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist.
Do not swallow.
Avoid contact with eyes.
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin.
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.
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.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage
areas and containers: Keep in properly labelled containers. Store in accordance with
the particular national regulations.
Advice on common storage: Do not store with the following product types:
Strong oxidizing agents
Recommended storage temperature: 10 - 30 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Processing may form hazardous compounds.
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Minimize workplace exposure concentrations.
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection : Wear the following personal protective equipment:
Safety glasses
Equipment should conform to BS EN 166
Hand protection
Material : Chemical-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. Breakthrough time is not
determined for the product. Change gloves often! 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.
Skin and body protection : Skin should be washed after contact.
Respiratory protection : Use respiratory protection unless adequate local exhaust
ventilation is provided or exposure assessment demonstrates
that exposures are within recommended exposure guidelines.
Filter type : Combined acidic gas/vapour and organic vapour type (AE)

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Not classified as a reactivity hazard.
Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.

Hazardous reactions: Can react with strong oxidizing agents.
Hazardous decomposition products will be formed at elevated
temperatures.

Conditions to avoid: None known.

Materials to avoid: Oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products
Thermal decomposition: Hydrofluoric acid
Carbonyl difluoride
Carbon dioxide
Carbon monoxide

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product : Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not product specific, but application specific.
Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.
Contaminated packaging : Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling
site for recycling or disposal.
If not otherwise specified: Dispose of as unused product.
