Skin contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Flush area with lukewarm water.
Do not use hot water. If frostbite has occurred, call a physician.

Eye contact : In case of eye contact
Hold eyelids apart and flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Get medical attention.

Ingestion: Is not considered a potential route of exposure.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Do not give adrenaline or similar drugs.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment., such as, Water spray, Foam, Dry chemical, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting: Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages.
Hazardous thermal decomposition products: Carbon oxides Hydrogen fluoride Carbonyl fluoride Fluorocarbons
Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters : In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Use personal protective equipment. Wear neoprene gloves during cleaning up work after a fire.

Further information: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Cool containers / tanks with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions : Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Ventilate area, especially low or enclosed places where heavy vapours might collect. Refer to protective measures listed in sections Handling and Storage and Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions : Should not be released into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up : Evaporates.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling : Avoid breathing vapours or mist. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. For personal protection see section Exposure Controls/personal Protection.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion : No special protective measures against fire required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers : Do not drag, slide or roll cylinders. Never attempt to lift cylinder by its cap. Use a check valve or trap in the discharge line to prevent hazardous back flow into the cylinder. Keep at temperature not exceeding 52°C. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store in original container. Protect from contamination.

Advice on common storage : No materials to be especially mentioned.

Storage temperature : < 52 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures : Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Local exhaust should be used when large amounts are released.

Eye protection : Safety glasses with side-shields
Additionally wear a face shield where the possibility exists for face contact due to splashing, spraying or airborne contact with this material.

Hand protection: Material: Heat insulating gloves

Skin and body protection : impervious clothing

Hygiene measures : Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Respiratory protection: For rescue and maintenance work in storage tanks use self-contained breathing apparatus. Vapours are heavier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing.
