First-aid measures

.Description of first aid measures

General advice : Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Victim to lie down in

the recovery position, cover and keep him warm. Give oxygen or artificial

respiration if needed. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek

medical advice.

Inhalation : Remove from exposure, lie down. Move to fresh air. Keep patient warm and at

rest. Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary. Consult a

physician.

Skin contact : Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off with warm water. Get

medical attention.

Eye contact : In case of eye contact: Hold eyelids apart and flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.

Get medical attention.

Ingestion : Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth

to an unconscious person. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water. If vomiting occurs,

have victim lean forward to reduce the risk of aspiration. Consult a physician.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment : Do not give adrenaline or similar drugs. Because of possible disturbances of

cardiac rhythm, catecholamine drugs, such as epinephrine, that may be used

in situations of emergency life support should be used with special caution.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media : Water spray, Water mist, Dry chemical, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards duringfirefighting

: Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages.

: The product is not flammable.

Hazardous combustion products:

: Hydrogen fluoride

: Fluorinated hydrocarbons

: Carbonyl fluoride

: Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters : In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Use personal

protective equipment. Wear neoprene gloves during cleaning up work after a

fire. Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.

Further information : Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the

surrounding environment. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Cool

containers/tanks with water spray. Fire residues and contaminated fire

extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions : Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Ventilate area, especially low or enclosed

places where heavy vapours might collect.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions : Prevent further leakage or spillage. Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by

containment or oil barriers). Should not be released into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up : Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material,

(e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for

disposal according to local / national regulations

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling : Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid breathing vapours or mist.

Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Avoid any dust buildup with fluorocarbons and metal mixtures.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers: Protect from contamination. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and wellventilated place. Store in original container. Avoid freezing temperatures. If

stored below -10°C (14°F), mix prior to use.

Advice on common storage : No materials to be especially mentioned

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Engineering measures : Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

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: Hydrofluoric acid-resistant and solvent-resistant gloves (gloves made

of VITON ®).

Glove thickness: 0.7 mm

Wearing time: 120 min

Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time

which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration

the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the

danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time.

Skin and body protection : Protective suit

Hygiene measures : Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. When

using do not eat, drink or smoke. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Avoid

contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and at the end

of workday.

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 : Stable at normal ambient temperature and pressure.

Chemical stability : The product is chemically stable.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
