Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
See SDS Section 11.1. Information on toxicological effects.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment required
This product contains or can produce hydrofluoric acid (HF). HF is highly corrosive and its exposure can lead to severe local damage, hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia and the development of cardiac arrhythmias, which are the primary cause of death in HF exposures. To significantly reduce or prevent HF dermal absorption, immediate irrigation of the affected area with copious amounts of either water or saline followed by the application of a calcium gluconate-containing gel is recommended. Intravenous (IV) access, serum electrolyte concentrations, an electrocardiogram, and cardiac monitoring should be obtained in patients exposed to HF. Patients with inhalation injuries are treated with oxygen and nebulized calcium gluconate (4 mL of 2.5-5%). Succinylcholine is best avoided if rapid sequence intubation must be performed in the setting of HF exposure due to the possibility of hyperkalemia. If systemic toxicity is suspected (due to QTc prolongation, cardiac arrhythmia, or obvious systemic illness), calcium is administered intravenously as part of the medical management.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
DO NOT USE WATER. Material will not burn. Use a fire fighting agent suitable for the surrounding fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal decomposition.

Hazardous Decomposition or By-Products
Substance Condition
Carbonyl Fluoride During Combustion
Carbon monoxide During Combustion
Carbon dioxide During Combustion
Hydrogen Fluoride During Combustion
Irritant Vapors or Gases During Combustion
Perfluoroisobutylene (PFIB) During Combustion


Advice for fire-fighters
When fire fighting conditions are severe and total thermal decomposition of the product is possible, wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained, positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, bunker coat and pants, bands around arms, waist and legs, face mask, and protective covering for exposed areas of the head.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Evacuate area. Ventilate the area with fresh air. For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapors, in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice. Refer to other sections of this SDS for information regarding physical and health hazards, respiratory protection, ventilation, and personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions
Avoid release to the environment. For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Contain spill. Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material. Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Remember, adding an absorbent material does not remove a physical, health, or environmental hazard. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Place in a metal container approved for use in transportation by appropriate authorities. The container must be lined with polyethylene plastic or contain a plastic drum liner made of polyethylene. Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized person. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and SDS. Cover, but do not seal for 48 hours. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible in accordance with applicable local/regional/national/international regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe thermal decomposition products. Store work clothes separately from other clothing, food and tobacco products. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid release to the environment. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Keep away from reactive metals (eg. aluminum, zinc etc.) to avoid the formation of hydrogen gas that could create an explosion hazard. No smoking: Smoking while using this product can result in contamination of the tobacco and/or smoke and lead to the formation of hazardous decomposition products.

Conditions for safe storage including any incompatibilities
Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed to prevent contamination with water or air. If contamination is suspected, do not reseal container. Store away from strong bases. Store away from amines.

Specific end use(s)
See information in SDS Section 7.1 and 7.2 for handling and storage recommendations. See SDS Section 8 for exposure controls and personal protection recommendations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Occupational exposure limits
No occupational exposure limit values exist for any of the components listed in SDS Section 3 of the SDS.

Exposure controls

Engineering controls
Provide appropriate local exhaust when product is heated. Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below relevant Exposure Limits and/or control dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment.

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Eye/face protection

Select and use eye/face protection to prevent contact based on the results of an exposure assessment. The following eye/face protection(s) are recommended:
Full Face Shield
Indirect Vented Goggles

Applicable norms/standards
Use eye/face protection conforming to EN 166

Skin/hand protection
Select and use gloves and/or protective clothing approved to relevant local standards to prevent skin contact based on the results of an exposure assessment. Selection should be based on use factors such as exposure levels, concentration of the substance or mixture, frequency and duration, physical challenges such as temperature extremes, and other use conditions. Consult with your glove and/or protective clothing manufacturer for selection of appropriate compatible gloves/protective clothing. Note: Nitrile gloves may be worn over polymer laminate gloves to improve dexterity.
