Emergency measure - Inhalation: Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Water, foam, carbon
dioxide and dry powder may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Products of combustion may
contain hydrogen fluoride and oxides of carbon, nitrogen
and sulphur together with some soot.

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: None recommended. [UK c.a.: see

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Isolate spillage and remove personnel from affected area.
Sweep up spill and dispose of by incineration at a suitable
facility using the precautions outlined under 2.3.1. For
liquid, absorb spill with a suitable absorbent material and
dispose of by incineration at a suitable facility.

Handling and storage

Handling: Minimise exposure and observe the usual precautions when
handling organic chemicals. Avoid inhalation. Gloves,
goggles and a suitable dust mask should be worn.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is not feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The substance can be disposed of at a suitable facility

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method. The substance can be disposed of at a
suitable facility with waste gas treatment to remove
nitrogen and sulphur oxides and hydrogen fluoride.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance will be removed by absorption on sludge.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will only enter the public domain in the form
of dyed articles which may be disposed of as domestic
