Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

First-aid measures

Inhalation – Move to fresh air. Artificial respiration if not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is labored. Seek medical attention.
Eye contact – Flush/irrigate with fresh water. Seek medical attention.
Skin contact – Flush/irrigate (spray) with water. Apply sterile dressing as necessary.. Seek medical treatment for symptoms of frostbite.
Ingestion – N/A

In treating cases of overexposure through inhalation, use of epinephrine, sympathomemetics or other stimulants is contraindicated as such compounds increase susceptibility to cardiac sensitization (irregular pulse or arrhythmia).

Fire-fighting measures

All are suitable. While product is non-flammable and extinguishes fires at sufficient concentration, can undergo thermal decomposition if involved in fires where quantity of product is insufficient to extinguish. Thermal decomposition products may be toxic or corrosive.

Container rupture possible if pressure and temperature relief valves should fail.

Employ water spray from a safe distance to prevent container rupture. If containers should rupture, use self contained breathing apparatus. Product is non-flammable, but denser than air, posing asphyxiation risk. Thoroughly ventilate affected area to remove product and any decomposition products before allowing re-entry.

Accidental release measures

Evacuate and ventilate the affected area. Prohibit general entry into areas where high concentrations may exist, particularly confined or poorly ventilated areas. Keep in mind that this product is denser than air and that concentrations will be higher at lower levels (sewers, basements or pits). Trained personnel should use self-contained breathing apparatus when entering areas where high concentrations may exist.

Handling and storage

Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area separate from incompatible materials. Protect containers from mechanical damage. Follow fire equipment manufacturer’s instructions for operation, inspection, maintenance and repair of portable extinguishers and fixed extinguishing systems.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures : Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Local exhaust should be used when large amounts are released.
Eye protection : Safety glasses with side-shields Additionally wear a face shield where the possibility exists for face contact due to splashing, spraying or airborne contact with this material.
Hand protection : Material: Heat insulating gloves
Skin and body protection : impervious clothing
Hygiene measures : Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Respiratory protection : For rescue and maintenance work in storage tanks use self-contained breathing apparatus. Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity : Decomposes on heating.
Chemical stability : The product is chemically stable.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Stable at normal temperatures and storage conditions.
Conditions to avoid : The product is not flammable in air under ambient conditions of temperature and pressure. When pressurised with air or oxygen, the mixture may become flammable. Certain mixtures of HCFCs or HFCs with chlorine may become flammable or reactive under certain conditions.
Incompatible materials : Alkali metals Alkaline earth metals Powdered metals Powdered metal salts
Hazardous decomposition products: Hazardous thermal decomposition products may include: Carbon oxides, Hydrogen fluoride, Carbonyl fluoride, Fluorocarbons

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product : Can be used after re-conditioning. In accordance with local and national regulations.
Contaminated packaging : Empty pressure vessels should be returned to the supplier.
