Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: 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: For PPE see section 2.3.00.

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.

presence of a combustible material. As a disposal
alternative, dispose of waste product in a facility
permitted to accept chemical waste. Combustion products will
include HF. Facility must be capable of handling

halogenated materials.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid contact with water to prevent potentially violent
reaction or fire. Avoid skin contact. Avoid eye contact with
dust or airborne particles. Do not eat, drink or smoke when
using this product. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap
and water. Do not breathe thermal decomposition products.

Materials and Conditions to Avoid: Strong acids; Strong
bases; Heat; Water; Strong oxidizing agents.


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.


- Eye/Face Protection:

Avoid eye contact. The following eye protection(s) are
recommended: Safety Glasses with side shields, 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: Butyl Rubber, Nitrile

- 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. Consult
the current 3M Respiratory Selection Guide for additional
information or call 1-800-243-4630 for 3M technical

- Prevention of Swallowing:

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