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: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with soap and plenty
of water.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
In case of eye contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water
for at least 15 minutes.
If easy to do, remove contact lens, if worn.
Get medical attention immediately.
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

Lung oedema
Eye disease
Ingestion may provoke the following symptoms:
Liver disorders
Kidney disorders
Symptoms may be delayed.
Eye contact may provoke the following symptoms
Swelling of tissue
Impairment of vision
Risks : Causes serious eye damage.
May cause damage to organs through prolonged or repeated

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical
Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known

Specific hazards during fire fighting: 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

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

Precautions for safe handling
Technical measures: See Engineering measures under EXPOSURE
Local/Total ventilation: Use only with adequate ventilation.
Advice on safe handling: Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist.
Do not swallow.
Do not get in 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
Keep container tightly closed.
Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the
Hygiene measures: If exposure to chemical is likely during typical use, provide eye
flushing systems and safety showers 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. Keep tightly closed.
Store in accordance with the particular national regulations.
Advice on common storage: No special restrictions on storage with other products.
Further information on storage
stability: Stable at normal ambient temperature and pressure.

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:
Chemical resistant goggles must be worn.
If splashes are likely to occur, wear:
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 : Select appropriate protective clothing based on chemical
resistance data and an assessment of the local exposure
Skin contact must be avoided by using impervious protective
clothing (gloves, aprons, boots, etc).Respiratory protection : If adequate local exhaust ventilation is not available or exposure
assessment demonstrates exposures outside the recommended
guidelines, use respiratory protection.
Filter type : Combined particulates and acidic gas/vapour type (E-P)

Stability and reactivity

Not classified as a reactivity hazard.

Chemical stability
Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Hazardous reactions: Hazardous decomposition products will be formed at elevated

Conditions to avoid: None known.

Incompatible materials
Materials to avoid: None.

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

Disposal considerations

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.
