Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Eye contact:

flush with large amounts of water. Remove contact lenses if easy to do. Continue rinsing. If signs/symptoms persist, get medical attention.

Skin contact:

wash with soap and water. If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.


no need for first aid is anticipated.

If swallowed:

rinse mouth. If you feel unwell, get medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

see MSDS Section 11.1 Information on toxicological effects

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment required:

not applicable

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

product is a fire-extinguishing agent.

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

Carbon monoxide During Combustion

Carbon dioxide During Combustion

Hydrogen Fluoride During Combustion

Toxic Vapor, Gas, Particulate 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

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

ventilate the area with fresh air. Refer to other sections of the MSDS 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 toxic, corrosivity or flammability hazard. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. 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 MSDS. Seal the container. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible.

Reference to other MSDS sections:

refer to Section 8 and Section 13 for more information

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid release to the environment. For industrial or professional use only. Do not use in a confined area or areas with little or no air movement.

Conditions for safe storage including any incompatibilities:

store away from heat. Store away from other materials. Protect from sunlight. Store in a well-ventilated place.

Specific end use(s):

See information in MSDS Section 7.1 and 7.2 for handling and storage recommendations. See MSDS Section 8 for exposure controls and personal protection recommendations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Exposure limits are listed below, if they exist.

Appropriate engineering controls

Engineering methods to prevent or control exposure are preferred. Methods include process or personnel

enclosure, mechanical ventilation (dilution and local exhaust), and control of process conditions.

Individual protection measures

Respiratory Protection

Wear respiratory protection if there is a risk of exposure to high vapor concentrations, aerosols or if

material is exposed to extreme overheating. The specific respirator selected must be based on the

airborne concentration found in the workplace and must not exceed the working limits of the respirator.

Skin Protection


Eye/Face Protection

Chemical goggles or safety glasses with side shields.

Body Protection

Normal work wear.

Stability and reactivity


Pressurized containers may rupture or explode if exposed to heat.

Chemical Stability

Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Hazardous polymerization will not occur.

Conditions to Avoid

Exposure to direct sunlight - ultraviolet light - contact with incompatible materials

Incompatible Materials

Strong bases - amines - alcohols - water

Hazardous Decomposition Products

Oxides of carbon - hydrogen fluoride - perfluoroisobutylene

Disposal considerations

Disposal Methods

Dispose of container in accordance with all applicable local and national regulations.
