First-aid measures

General advice:
In the case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical ad-vice immediately. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.

Protection of first-aiders:
First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection, and use the recommended personal protective equipment when the potential for exposure exists.

If inhaled:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air.
If not breathing, give artificial respiration.
If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Get medical attention immediately.

In case of skin contact:
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with soap and plenty of water.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

In case of eye contact:
Flush eyes with water as a precaution.
Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

If swallowed:
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Rinse mouth thoroughly with water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms:
Inhalation may provoke the following symptoms:
Irritation
Shortness of breath
Lung oedema
Cough
Eye contact may provoke the following symptoms
Lachrymation
Redness
Discomfort

Risks:
Fatal if inhaled.
May cause damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
None known.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire-fighting:
Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.

Hazardous combustion products:
Hydrogen fluoride
carbonyl fluoride
potentially toxic fluorinated compounds
aerosolized particulates

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Use personal protective equipment.
Specific extinguishing methods:
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Remove undamaged containers from fire area if it is safe to do so.
Evacuate area.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions:
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Only trained personnel should re-enter the area.
Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment recommendations.


Environmental precautions:
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers).
Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.
Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.


Methods for cleaning up:
Soak up with inert absorbent material.
For large spills, provide dyking or other appropriate contain-ment to keep material from spreading. If dyked material can be pumped, store recovered material in appropriate container.
Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable absorbent.
Local or national regulations may apply to releases and dis-posal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to deter-mine which regulations are applicable.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Technical measures:
See Engineering measures under EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION section.

Local/Total ventilation:
Use with local exhaust ventilation.

Advice on safe handling:
Do not breathe vapours or spray mist.
Do not swallow.
Avoid contact with eyes.
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin.
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice, based on the results of the workplace exposure as-sessment
Keep container tightly closed.
Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the environment.

Hygiene measures:
Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Keep in properly labelled containers. Store locked up. Keep tightly closed. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store in accordance with the particular national regulations.

Advice on common storage:

Strong oxidizing agents
Flammable liquids
Flammable solids
Pyrophoric liquids
Pyrophoric solids
Self-heating substances and mixtures
Substances and mixtures, which in contact with water, emit flammable gases
Explosives
Gases

Recommended storage temperature:
5 - 40 °C

Further information on storage stability:

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Processing may form hazardous compounds.
Minimize workplace exposure concentrations.
Use with local exhaust ventilation.
Personal protective equipment

Eye protection:
Wear the following personal protective equipment:
Safety glasses
Equipment should conform to BS EN 166

Hand protection
Material:
butyl-rubber
Break through time:
480 min
Glove thickness:
0.89 mm
Remarks:
Choose gloves to protect hands against chemicals depending on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous sub-stance and specific to place of work. For special applications, we recommend clarifying the resistance to chemicals of the aforementioned protective gloves with the glove manufactur-er. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Skin and body protection:
Skin should be washed after contact.
Respiratory protection:
Use respiratory protection unless adequate local exhaust ventilation is provided or exposure assessment demonstrates that exposures are within recommended exposure guidelines.

Filter type:
Combined particulates and acidic gas/vapour type (E-P)

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product:
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not product specific, but application specific.
Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.

Contaminated packaging:
Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste han-dling site for recycling or disposal.
If not otherwise specified: Dispose of as unused product.
