First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

General advice: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Victim to lie down in the recovery position, cover and keep him warm. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Keep patient warm and at rest. Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary.

Skin contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off with warm water.

Eye contact: In case of eye contact Hold eyelids apart and flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water. If vomiting occurs, have victim lean forward to reduce the risk of aspiration. Consult a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: Eye contact may provoke the following symptoms: Irritation, Tearing, redness, or discomfort. Ingestion may provoke the following symptoms: Aspiration may cause pulmonary oedema and pneumonitis.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting: The product is not flammable. Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages.

Hazardous thermal decomposition products: Hydrogen fluoride, Carbon monoxide, Carbonyl fluoride

Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Use personal protective equipment. Wear neoprene gloves during cleaning up work after a fire.

Further information: Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions: Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Ventilate area, especially low or enclosed places where heavy vapours might collect. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Refer to protective measures listed in “Handling and storage” and “Exposure controls/personal protection”.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage. Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers). Do not allow contact with soil, surface or ground water. Prevent material from entering sewers, waterways, or low areas.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up: Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see “Disposal considerations”). Do not flush with water. Do not let product enter drains.

Reference to other sections: For disposal instructions see “Disposal considerations”.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid breathing vapours or mist. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. For personal protection see “Exposure controls/personal protection”.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Avoid any dust buildup with fluorocarbons and metal mixtures.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers: Protect from contamination. To prevent leaks or spillages from spreading, provide a suitable liquid retention system. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store in original container. Avoid freezing temperatures. If stored below -10°C (14°F), mix prior to use.

Advice on common storage: No materials to be especially mentioned. For further information see “Stability and reactivity”.

Other data: No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Specific end use(s): no data available

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures: Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

Eye protection: Wear safety glasses or coverall chemical splash goggles. Additionally wear a face shield where the possibility exists for face contact due to splashing, spraying or airborne contact with this material. Eye protection complying with EN 166.

Hand protection:

Material: Solvent-resistant gloves

Material: Neoprene

Material: Viton® - Glove thickness: 0.7 mm - Wearing time: 120 min

Material: Protective gloves complying with EN 374.

The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other. Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time.

Skin and body protection: Where there is potential for skin contact, have available and wear as appropriate: impervious gloves, apron, pants, jacket, hood and boots.

Protective measures: Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) is required if a large release occurs. The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Respiratory protection: For rescue and maintenance work in storage tanks use self-contained breathing apparatus. Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing. Respiratory protection complying with EN 137.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Stable at normal ambient temperature and pressure.

Chemical stability: The product is chemically stable.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Conditions to avoid: The product is not flammable in air under ambient conditions of temperature and pressure. When pressurised with air or oxygen, the mixture may become flammable. Certain mixtures of HCFCs or HFCs with chlorine may become flammable or reactive under certain conditions.

Incompatible materials: Alkali metals, Alkaline earth metals, Powdered metals, Powdered metal salts, Strong acids such as aluminum trichloride.

Hazardous decomposition products

Hazardous thermal decomposition products may include: Hydrogen fluoride, Carbon monoxide, Carbonyl fluoride

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Product: Reclaim by distillation, incinerate, or remove to permitted waste facility. Can be used after re-conditioning. If recycling is not practicable, dispose of in compliance with local regulations. The product should not be allowed to enter drains, water courses or the soil. Prevent wastewater, spent product, and materials containing or contaminated with product from entering waterways.

Contaminated packaging: If recycling is not practicable, dispose of in compliance with local regulations.
