First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give

artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give

oxygen. Call a physician.

Emergency measure - Eyes: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of

water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.

Emergency measure - Skin: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with water after

contact. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Not a probable route. If swallowed, immediately give 2

glasses of water and induce vomiting. Never give anything by

mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, dry chemical and CO2.

Product arising from burning: Hazardous gases/vapors produced in fire from Compound 7518

may include oxides of carbon, oxides of nitrogen, and

hydrogen fluoride. Potential hazardous gases/vapors produced

in a fire with the compounded polymer sheets may include

hydrogen fluoride (HF), carbon monoxide, low molecular

weight fluorocarbons or perfluoroolefins, and oxides of

nitrogen.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Keep personnel removed and upwind of fire.

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full

protective equipment. Does not burn without external flame.

Protect from hydrogen fluoride fumes, which react with water

to form hydrofluoric acid. Wear neoprene gloves when

handling refuse from a fire.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Safeguards (personnel):

Review fire fighting measures and handling (personnel)

sections before proceeding with clean up. Use appropriate

personal protective equipment during cleaning up. Spill

clean up of Compound 7518: sweep up to avoid slipping

hazard. Avoid causing dust.

Handling and storage

Handling: Positive pressure air-supplied respirators, impervious gloves and impervious whole-body suits will be used to prevent ocular, dermal or inhalation exposure to Compound 7518. Mixing operations with Compound 7518 will be performed using local exhaust, engineered to prevent fugitive dust emissions. Once incorporated into compounded polymer sheets, wear impervious clothing to prevent any contact with this product, such as safety glasses, coverall chemical splash goggles, face shield, gloves, apron, boots, or whole bodysuit as appropriate. Wash thoroughly after handling.   Customers who handle compounded polymer sheets will be advised to wear impervious clothing to prevent any contact with this product, such as safety glasses, coverall chemical splash goggles, face shield, gloves, apron, boots, or whole bodysuit as appropriate. Do not store or consume food, drink or tobacco in areas where they may become contaminated with compounded polymer.   Vapors and fumes liberated during hot processing of Compound 7518 or the full compounded polymer should be exhausted from the work areas to maintain hydrogen fluoride and other possible thermal degradation products concentrations below the permissible exposure limits. When processing temperatures exceed 200 degrees Celsius and ventilation is inadequate to maintain concentrations below exposure limits, use a positive pressure air supplied respirator. Air purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.   If there is potential contact with hot/molten material, wear heat resistant clothing and footwear. Do not touch decomposed parts even when cool. Neoprene gloves are recommended.   - Engineering controls  Use only with adequate ventilation. Use static controls. Static charges can build up and ignite dust and solvent laden atmospheres.  Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. Keep containers tightly closed to prevent moisture absorption and contamination.  Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Compound 7518 will be packaged in polyethylene bags with 10 kg or 50 kg fiberpak drums. Compounded polymer sheets containing Compound 7518 will be subsequently wrapped in polyethylene film, and then packed inside either 25 kg boxes or stacked in 900 kg returnable containers for shipment to industrial customers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering controls

Use only with adequate ventilation. Use static controls. Static charges can build up and ignite dust and solvent laden atmospheres.

Engineering Controls

Use only with adequate ventilation.

Ventilation

Vapors and fumes liberated during hot processing should be exhausted from work areas to maintain hydrogen fluoride and other possible thermal degradation product concentrations below the PEL.

Use static controls. Static charges can build up and ignite dust or solvent laden atmospheres.

Personal Protective Equipment

Eye / Face Protection

Wear coverall chemical splash goggles, and face shield when the possibility exists for eye or face contact from airborne material.

Respirator

This material does not have established exposure limits. Wear a NIOSH approved pressure demand air-supplied respirator (with an APF of 100 or greater) in situations where there may be potential for airborne exposure.

Protective Clothing

Wear impervious clothing to prevent ANY contact with this product, such as gloves, apron, boots, or whole bodysuit as appropriate.

Exposure Guidelines

Exposure Limits

Curative all in synonym list ELX228

PEL (OSHA) : None Established

TLV (ACGIH) : None Established

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Incompatability with other materials:

None foreseeable.

- Compounding the compounded polymer sheets with metal

powders may present an explosion hazard.

Decomposition:

At temperatures above the thermal decomposition point of

Compound 7518, hazardous gases or vapors can be released,

including oxides of carbon and oxides of nitrogen, and

hydrogen fluoride.

Hazardous gases/vapors produced from the compounded polymer

sheet above its thermal decomposition point may include

hydrogen fluoride (HF), carbon monoxide, low molecular

weight fluorocarbons or perfluoroolefins, and oxides of

nitrogen. If compounded polymer sheets are used at

temperatures above 316 degrees Celsius (601 degrees F), the

surface of the parts may contain HF or HF condensate, which

may cause severe burns, sometimes with symptoms delayed for

several hours. Wear neoprene or PVC (if temperature is low

enough) or other impermeable gloves when handling parts or

equipment after exposure to such high temperatures. If

condensate is expected, wash equipment and parts with

limewater (calcium hydroxide solution). Discard gloves after

handling degraded parts.

Chemical reaction with water: The substance is not flammable in contact with water

Dust explosion: Use static controls. Static charges can build up and ignite

dust or solvent laden atmospheres.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: 612: Recovery by recycling. Some opportunities exist for

recycling of Compound 7518.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No possibility of neutralisation exists.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: 650: Removal by controlled dumping at a licensed landfill.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: 661: Incinerator with flue gas scrubbing.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Processing wastes from the compounding operation are

directed to a wastewater treatment facility.
