First-aid measures

Inhalation:
Move patient from contaminated area to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. In case of persistent problems : Consult a physician.

Skin contact:
Wash off with plenty of water. Frostbite : treat as thermal burns.

Eye contact:
Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, consult an ophthalmologist.

Ingestion:
No hazards which require special first aid measures.

Protection of first-aiders:
Confined space : risk of hypoxia. If entering a saturated atmosphere, wear a self contained breathing apparatus.

Treatment: Do not administer catecholamines (because of the cardiac effect caused by the product).

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Use suitable means to extinguish neighbouring fires., The product itself does not burn.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Thermal decomposition giving toxic and corrosive products :, Hydrogen fluoride, Hydrogen bromide., Bromine compounds, Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters:
Specific methods:
Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Ensure a system for the rapid emptying of containers. In case of fire, remove exposed containers.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours. In enclosed areas : ventilate or wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (risk of anoxia). Remove all sources of ignition. Do not smoke.

Environmental precautions:
Do not release into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Recovery:Ensure adequate ventilation.
Neutralisation:Stop leak if safe to do so.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: pressurised liquified gas Dangerous for the environment. Handle substance within a closed system. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby (for emergency intervention). Provide showers, eye-baths Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Well ventilate empty vats and tanks before entering.

Safe handling advice:
Prohibit ignition sources and contact with hot surfaces - DO NOT SMOKE. Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure. Only use safety equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect full containers from sources of heat to avoid overpressurization. Keep away from direct sunlight.

Do not store above: 50 °C

Incompatible products:
Alkali metals, Alkaline earth metals

Packaging material:
Recommended: Ordinary steel, Stainless steel
To be avoided: Alloys containing more than 2% of magnesium, Plastic materials

Specific use(s) (End Use):
This substance must be handled under strictly controlled conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 18(4) for transported isolated
intermediates. Written confirmation of application of strictly controlled conditions has been received from every Downstream User of the
intermediate registered by Arkema.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS:

General protective measures:
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. On each manufacture or use site, clearly-written substance-handling procedures should be available, kept up-to-date and their implementation controlled. Use material of high integrity for loading and unloading. Investigate engineering techniques to reduce exposures. Routine monitoring and inspections for leaks to reduce fugitive emissions.

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment., In the case of hazardous fumes, wear self contained breathing apparatus.

Hand protection: Leather gloves
Eye/face protection: Safety glasses
Skin and body protection: Protective suit

Environmental exposure controls:
Do not release into the environment., Use techniques to minimize emissions (incineration or any treatment to minimize level of release).
