First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water for at least fifteen minutes.
Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray/fog and alcohol foam may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon and
nitrogen together with hydrogen fluoride gas, organic amines
and boron compounds.

Organic amines (pyrolysis only - by mass spectral analysis)

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing
should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (See 2.3.1). Sweep up
spill and transfer to suitable labelled containers and
dispose of at a suitable landfill site in accordance with
local regulations. Wash spill site with water.

Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure adequate ventilation, use local exhaust ventilation.
Avoid inhalation and contact with skin. Wear chemical
goggles or safety glasses, disposable latex gloves and
particle removing, air purifying respirators (Wilson 6100M
with dual cartridge filter for dust (north dust filter
N7500-6 TC-21C-151) and organic vapour (Wilson TC-23C-737).

Storage: The substance should be stored in a cool, dark, well
ventilated area, away from reducing agents and strong bases.

Containers should be weather pack II fibre drums with hot
melt binder (multilayer high density polyethylene fibre).

UN IG/Y200/S/94 approved packaging.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Containers should be weather pack II fibre drums with hot
melt binder (multilayer high density polyethylene fibre).

UN IG/Y200/S/94 approved packaging.

Drums used are 55 gallon in size and contain up to 100 kg of
substance in Low density polyethylene/Nylon/Low density
polyethylene co-extruded drum liners.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling by a re-fluorination process is
possible. (A623)

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance can be dissolved in water and caustic solution
then used to destroy it. Typically, boil an aqueous solution
for 16 hours at 80 degrees C with 1M sodium hydroxide
solution. This gives triethylenediamine, sodium chloride,
sodium tetrafluoroborate and sodium formate. (A632)

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a controlled landfill site is possible. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Disposal by incineration at an authorised facility may be
possible. Waste gas treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen
and hydrogen fluoride gas and possibly boron oxide smoke
should be fitted. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended

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