First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to a site away from the accident. In cases of
anoxia, give oxygen and seek medical attention. In all
cases, DO NOT give adrenalin or similar medication
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water, seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash the mouth. If the patient is unconcious, give oxygen
and seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon monoxide, hydrogen
fluorides and chlorides together with chloro- and
fluoro-carbonyls (eg phosgene). Wear a self-contained
breathing apparatus and protective clothing. Protect
equipment with water spray. Evacuate, if possible, persons
exposed to fumes: if not, spray them with cold water.
Suitable extinguishing agents are water, carbon dioxide,
powder and foam.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Eliminate naked flames and remove hot surfaces. If a leak
occurs in a confined space, evacuate area and only use
equipment provided. Ensure a self-contained breathing
apparatus is provided (risk of anoxia). Extract vapours as
soon as possible; if not, cover with foams. In all cases,
replace the stopper in the drum, if possible. Try to dam the
liquid and pump into closed receptacles. Avoid accumulation
of vapours in depressions. If necessary, disperse vapour
using ventilation or water spray. For small quantities
absorb the substance using suitable material (sand,
vermiculite) and store the waste in a sealed drum for

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid inhalation of vapour (sources of vapour should be
foreseeable). Avoid contact with skin and eyes (wear
neoprene and safety glasses). Do not smoke, ban naked flames
and avoid hot surfaces. The substance is difficult to ignite
but take precautions as there is a lag time. Carefully open
drums, the contents may be under pressure. Do not enter a
storage area or tank without observing the safety

Storage: Store in hermetically sealed reinforced drums that have
vents and which are kept in an efficiently ventilated
location below 50 deg C and away from sunlight. Avoid alloys
containing >2% magnesium.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Exothermic reactions with certain reactive metals are
possible (alkali metals, beryllium, magnesium, zinc and
aluminum dust).
