First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove person to fresh air. If signs/symptoms develop, get
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at
least 15 minutes. Get immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected area with soap and water. If signs/symptoms
develop, get medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to do so by medical
personnel. Give victim two glasses of water. Never give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical
attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Non-combustible. Choose material suitable for surrounding
fire.

Product arising from burning: Hazardous polymerization will not occur.


Substance: Condition:

Carbonyl Fluoride During Combustion

Carbon monoxide During Combustion

Carbon dioxide During Combustion

Ammonium Fluoride During Combustion

Hydrogen Fluoride During Combustion

Toxic Vapor, Gas, Particulate During Combustion



Hazardous Decomposition: Hydrogen fluoride has an ACGIH
Threshold Limit Value of 3 parts per million (as fluoride)
as a Ceiling Limit and an OSHA PEL of 3 ppm of fluoride as
an eight hour Time-Weighted Average and 6 ppm of fluoride as
a Short Term Exposure Limit. The odor threshold for HF is
0.04 ppm, providing good warning properties for exposure.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Special Fire Fighting Procedures:

Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal
decomposition. Wear full protective equipment (Bunker Gear)
and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Observe precautions from other sections. Call 3M- HELPS line
(1-800-364-3577) for more information on handling and
managing the spill. Ventilate the area with fresh air.
Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Clean
up residue with detergent and water. Place in a closed
container approved for transportation by appropriate
authorities. Dispose of collected material as soon as
possible.


Waste Disposal Method:

Reclaim if feasible. Dispose of waste product in a facility
permitted to accept chemical waste. As a disposal
alternative, incinerate in an industrial or commercial
facility in the presence of a combustible material.
Combustion products will include HF. Facility must be
capable of handling halogenated materials.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid eye contact with dust or airborne particles. Avoid
skin contact. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this
product. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water.
Do not breathe thermal decomposition products. Avoid eye
contact with vapors, mists, or spray.


ENGINEERING CONTROLS:

Provide appropriate local exhaust when product is heated.
For those situations where the fluid might be exposed to
extreme overheating due to misuse or equipment failure, use
with appropriate local exhaust ventilation sufficient to
maintain levels of thermal decomposition products below
their exposure guidelines.


PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)


- Eye/Face Protection:

Avoid eye contact. The following eye protection(s) are
recommended: Indirect Vented Goggles.


- Skin Protection:

Avoid skin contact.

Select and use gloves and/or protective clothing to prevent
skin contact based on the results of an exposure assessment.
Consult with your glove and/or protective clothing
manufacturer for selection of appropriate compatible
materials.

Gloves made from the following material(s) are recommended:
Neoprene, Nitrile Rubber, Polyethylene/Ethylene Vinyl
Alcohol.


- Respiratory Protection:

Avoid breathing of vapors created during extrusion or
processing at elevated temperatures.

Select one of the following NIOSH approved respirators based
on airborne concentration of contaminants and in accordance
with OSHA regulations: Fullface supplied-air respirator,
Half facepiece or fullface air-purifying respirator with
organic vapor cartridges and N95 particulate prefilters.
Consult the current 3M Respiratory Selection Guide for
additional information or call 1-800-243-4630 for 3M
technical assistance.


- Prevention of Swallowing:

Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash
exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water.

Storage: Store away from heat. Store out of direct sunlight.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Product will be packaged in HDPE containers (typically
100mL, 4L, and 20L sizes). Product can be safely packaged
in glass containers as well.


Formulated etching & cleaning solutions will be packaged in
high density polyethylene containers up to 55 gallons.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Product is used in extremely low quantities and in an
environment not conducive to reclamation, thus recovery and
recycling are not practical.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration of the product as-sold is viable. Most
properly operating incinerators reach a temperature (~926 C
or 1700 F) and have a retention time (3 seconds or more)
sufficient for complete destruction. It is recommended that
this material be slowly metered to an incinerator that is
properly equipped with flu gas scrubbers, as HF will be
generated during combustion. The material could also be
sent to a chemical waste facility for disposal. Once
diluted for use, the preparation becomes a poor candidate
for incineration due to the large volume of water. Disposal
must be in compliance with all applicable federal, state,
and local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The release of the preparation to wastewater treatment is
unlikely to exhibit significant environmental impact, nor
would it be expected to disrupt the operation of properly
operating wastewater treatment systems. Concentrations
discharged to wastewater are very low (estimated at << 1
ppm), and are expected to ultimately degrade to
perfluorobutane sulfonate (PFBS). 3M's research and
experience indicate that reclamation through some physical
or chemical means (e.g., filtering, precipitating, etc.) at
these concentrations is not a viable option.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
