First-aid measures

General advice : First aider needs to protect himself. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.

Inhalation : When inhaled remove to fresh air and seek medical aid. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration. If unconscious place in recovery position and seek medical advice.

Skin contact : Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite. In case of contact with liquid, thaw frosted parts with water, then remove clothing carefully. Wash with plenty of water. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Consult a physician.

Eye contact : Protect unharmed eye. Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.

Ingestion : Unlikely route of exposure.

Notes to physician
Treatment : Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Specific hazards during fire fighting : Extremely flammable. Some risk may be expected of corrosive and toxic decomposition products. In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as: Carbon monoxide, Hydrogen halides, Carbonyl halides, Pyrolysis products containing fluoride. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters : Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information : In case of fire: Evacuate area. Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosion.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions : Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Ventilate the area. Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Environmental precautions : The product evaporates readily. Prevent product from entering drains.

Methods for cleaning up : Use low-sparking handtools and/or explosion-proof electrical equipment. Allow to evaporate.

Additional advice : Inform the responsible authorities in case of gas leakage, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains. Pay attention to the spreading of gases especially at ground level (heavier than air) and to the direction of the wind.

Handling and storage

Handling
Advice on safe handling : Exhaust ventilation at the object is necessary. Pressurized container: Protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 °C. Do not pierce or burn, even after use. Use suitably rated equipment.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion : Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages. Use suitably rated equipment.

Storage
Further information on storage conditions : Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Containers should be protected against falling down. Protect from warmth. Do not store at temperature exceeding 50 °C. Keep away from direct sunlight.
