- powder
- Foam
- Dry chemical
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
2. Unsuitable extinguishing media:
- None.

SPECIFIC HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE CHEMICAL
- The product is not flammable.
- Not explosive
- The pressure in sealed containers can increase under the influence of heat.
- Explosive reaction may occur on heating or burning.
- In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as: Gaseous hydrogen fluoride (HF), Fluorophosgene

SPECIAL PROTECTIVE ACTIONS FOR FIRE_FIGHTERS
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- When intervention in close proximity wear acid resistant over suit.
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Approach from upwind.
- Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire.
- Keep containers and surroundings cool with water spray.
- Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
1. Advice for non-emergency personnel
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
2. Advice for emergency responders
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.
- Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.
- Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS:
- Should not be released into the environment.

METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP:
- Soak up with inert absorbent material.
- Suitable material for picking up
- Earth
- Dry sand
- Shovel into suitable container for disposal.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING:
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Use personal protective equipment.
- Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
- To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.
- Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
- Clean and dry piping circuits and equipment before any operations.
- Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations.

CONDITIONS FOR STORAGE, INCLUDING INCOMPATIBILITIES:
1. Storage
- Keep in properly labelled containers.
- Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
- Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
- Keep away from combustible material.
- Keep away from Incompatible products.
- Provide tight electrical equipment well protected against corrosion.
- Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.
2. Packaging material
Suitable material:
- Stainless steel
- Plastic material
- Maximum filling degree: 90% at 20°C

Exposure controls / personal protection

CONTROL PARAMETERS
Exposure Limit Values:
Ethane, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloro-1,2-difluoro-
- US. ACGIH Threshold Limit Values 01 2010
time weighted average = 50 ppm

EXPOSURE CONTROLS
1. Appropriate engineering controls:
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.
- Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure limits.

2. Individual protection measures:
2.1. Respiratory protection
- Use respirator when performing operations involving potential exposure to vapour of the product.
- The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.
- Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards.
- Remove respiratory and skin/eye protection only after vapours have been cleared from the area.
2.2. Hand protection
- Rubber gloves
- Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).
2.3. Eye protection
- Tightly fitting safety goggles
2.4. Skin and body protection
- Long sleeved clothing
- Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the specific work-place.
2.5. Hygiene measures
- Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
- When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
- Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
- Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

3. Environmental exposure controls:
- Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.
