First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air, avoid heat loss. Give oxygen or mouth
to mouth resuscitation. In all cases, seek medical advice
and remove contaminated clothing.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water for 10-15 minutes.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with plenty of water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting, give one glass of water.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon oxides and hydrogen
fluoride gas (especially in contact with red-hot metal).
Suitable extinguishing agents are water, foam, carbon
dioxide, dry powder. A self-contained breathing apparatus
should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Spilt material should be contained and collected, if
necessary using absorbing agents. The material should be
recycled where possible. However, it may be disposed of at
a landfill site as special waste or by incineration. Spilt
material should not be allowed to enter water systems.

Handling and storage

Handling: Transfer of the liquid in use (eg filling operations) will
be by mechanical means. However, it is recommended that
operators wear eye protection and gloves in case of
accidents.

Storage: Store in closed containers or double walled
tanks/collecting tubs.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Used substance should be collected and returned for
recycling by distillation. Contaminated material can,
depending upon the nature and the grade of the impurity, be
recycled.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a controlled landfill site as special waste is
possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This method is recommended for disposal. However, that
incinerator must have a high facility to remove hydrogen
fluoride gas.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is virtually insoluble in water and not
biodegradable. It should not be allowed to enter water
systems. However, if it does enter a water system it should
accumulate as a bottom layer. Recovery by pumping and
settlement in tanks should allow recovery of most of the
substance.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
