First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice: In the case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice
immediately.
When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical
advice.
Protection of first-aiders: No special precautions are necessary for first aid responders.
If inhaled, remove to fresh air.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
In case of skin contact: Thaw frosted parts with lukewarm water. Do not rub affected
area.
Get medical attention immediately.
In case of eye contact: Get medical attention immediately.
If swallowed: Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Risks : Contact with liquid or refrigerated gas can cause cold burns
and frostbite.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
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 firefighting: May form explosive mixtures in air.
Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.
If the temperature rises there is danger of the vessels bursting
due to the high vapor pressure.
Hazardous combustion products: Hydrogen fluoride
carbonyl fluoride
potentially toxic fluorinated compounds
aerosolized particulates
Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
Use personal protective equipment.
Specific extinguishing methods: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances
and the surrounding environment.
Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosion.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Leaking gas fire: Do not extinguish, unless leak can be stopped safely.
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: Only trained personnel should re-enter the area.
Remove all sources of ignition.
Avoid skin contact with leaking liquid (danger of frostbite).
Ventilate the area.
Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment
recommendations.

Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up: Ventilate the area.
Non-sparking tools should be used.
Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water
spray jet.
Local or national regulations may apply to releases and disposal
of this material, as well as those materials and items
employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to determine
which regulations are applicable.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Technical measures: Use equipment rated for cylinder pressure. Use a backflow
preventative device in piping. Close valve after each use and
when empty.
Local/Total ventilation: Use with local exhaust ventilation.
Use only in an area equipped with explosion-proof exhaust
ventilation if advised by assessment of the local exposure
potential
Advice on safe handling: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
practice, based on the results of the workplace exposure assessment
Keep container tightly closed.
Wear cold insulating gloves/ face shield/ eye protection.
Prevent backflow into the gas tank.
Open the valves slowly to prevent pressure surges.
Close valve after each use and when empty. Do NOT change
or force fit connections.
Prevent the intrusion of water into the gas tank.
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the
environment.
Avoid breathing gas.
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. Keep tightly closed.
Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep away from direct
sunlight. Store in accordance with the particular national regulations.
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Advice on common storage: Do not store with the following product types:
Self-reactive substances and mixtures
Organic peroxides
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
Acutely toxic substances and mixtures
Substances and mixtures with chronic toxicity

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Processing may form hazardous compounds (see section 10).
Minimize workplace exposure concentrations.
Use only in an area equipped with explosion-proof exhaust ventilation if advised by assessment
of the local exposure potential
Use with local exhaust ventilation.
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection : Wear the following personal protective equipment:
Chemical resistant goggles must be worn.
Face-shield
Hand protection
Material : Heat resistant gloves
Remarks: Choose gloves to protect hands against chemicals depending
on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous substance
and specific to place of work. For special applications,
we recommend clarifying the resistance to chemicals of the
aforementioned protective gloves with the glove manufacturer.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Breakthrough time is not determined for the product. Change
gloves often!
Skin and body protection : Wear the following personal protective equipment:
Flame retardant antistatic protective clothing, unless assessment
demonstrates that the risk of explosive atmospheres
or flash fires is low
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 : Self-contained breathing apparatus
Protective measures : Wear cold insulating gloves/ face shield/ eye protection.

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 handling
site for recycling or disposal.
Empty pressure vessels should be returned to the supplier. If not otherwise specified: Dispose of as unused product.
