First-aid measures


Remove person to fresh air.  If you are concerned, get medical advice.

Skin Contact:

Wash with soap and water.  If you are concerned, get medical advice.

Eye Contact:

Immediately flush with large amounts of water.  Remove contact lenses if easy to do.  Continue rinsing.  Get medical attention.

If Swallowed:

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

Fire-fighting measures

1. Extinguishing media

In case of fire: Use a fire fighting agent suitable for ordinary combustible material such as water or foam to extinguish.

2. 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

Oxides of Nitrogen                           During Combustion

Perfluoroisobutylene (PFIB)       During Combustion

Oxides of Sulfur                           During Combustion

3. Advice for fire-fighters

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

1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Evacuate area.  Ventilate the area with fresh air.  For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapors, in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice.  Refer to other sections of this SDS for information regarding physical and health hazards, respiratory protection, ventilation, and personal protective equipment.

2. Environmental precautions

Avoid release to the environment.

3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Collect as much of the spilled material as possible.  Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities.  Clean up residue.  Seal the container.  Dispose of collected material as soon as possible in accordance with applicable local/regional/national/international regulations.

Handling and storage

1. Precautions for safe handling

Do not breathe thermal decomposition products.  Store work clothes separately from other clothing, food and tobacco products.  Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood.  Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray.  Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.  Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product.  Wash thoroughly after handling.  Avoid release to the environment.  No smoking: Smoking while using this product can result in contamination of the tobacco and/or smoke and lead to the formation of hazardous decomposition products.  Use personal protective equipment (gloves, respirators, etc.) as required.

2. Conditions for safe storage including any incompatibilities

No special storage requirements.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure limits

No occupational exposure limit values exist

2. Exposure controls

2.1. Engineering controls

For those situations where the material might be exposed to extreme overheating due to misuse or equipment failure, use with appropriate local exhaust ventilation sufficient to maintain levels of thermal decomposition products below their exposure guidelines.  Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below relevant Exposure Limits and/or control dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment.

2.2. Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Eye/face protection

Select and use eye/face protection to prevent contact based on the results of an exposure assessment.  The following eye/face protection(s) are recommended:

Indirect Vented Goggles

Applicable norms/standards

Use eye protection conforming to EN 166

Skin/hand protection

Select and use gloves and/or protective clothing approved to relevant local standards to prevent skin contact based on the results of an exposure assessment. Selection should be based on use factors such as exposure levels, concentration of the substance or mixture, frequency and duration, physical challenges such as temperature extremes, and other use conditions. Consult with your glove and/or protective clothing manufacturer for selection of appropriate compatible gloves/protective clothing.

Gloves made from the following material(s) are recommended:

Material       Thickness (mm)       Breakthrough Time

Neoprene       No data available       No data available

Applicable norms/standards

Use gloves tested to EN 374

If this product is used in a manner that presents a higher potential for exposure (eg. spraying, high splash potential etc.), then use of protective coveralls may be necessary.  Select and use body protection to prevent contact based on the results of an exposure assessment.  The following protective clothing material(s) are recommended: Apron -  Neoprene

Respiratory protection

An exposure assessment may be needed to decide if a respirator is required.  If a respirator is needed, use respirators as part of a full respiratory protection program.  Based on the results of the exposure assessment, select from the following respirator type(s) to reduce inhalation exposure:

During heating:

Use a positive pressure supplied-air respirator if there is a potential for over exposure from an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known, or under any other circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.

Half facepiece or full facepiece air-purifying respirator suitable for particulates

Applicable norms/standards

Use a respirator conforming to EN 140 or EN 136: filter type P

Stability and reactivity

1. Reactivity

This material is considered to be non reactive under normal use conditions.

2. Chemical stability



3. Possibility of hazardous reactions

Hazardous polymerization will not occur.  

4. Conditions to avoid

None known.

5. Incompatible materials

None known.

6. Hazardous decomposition products

None known.       

If the product is exposed to extreme condition of heat from misuse or equipment failure, toxic decomposition products that include hydrogen fluoride and perfluoroisobutylene can occur.

Disposal considerations

1 Waste treatment methods

Dispose of contents/ container in accordance with the local/regional/national/international regulations.

Dispose of waste product in a permitted industrial waste facility. As a disposal alternative, incinerate in a permitted waste incineration facility. Proper destruction may require the use of additional fuel during incineration processes. Combustion products will include HF.  Facility must be capable of handling halogenated materials. Empty drums/barrels/containers used for transporting and handling hazardous chemicals (chemical substances/mixtures/preparations classified as Hazardous as per  applicable regulations) shall be considered, stored, treated & disposed of as hazardous wastes unless otherwise defined by applicable waste regulations. Consult with the respective regulating authorities to determine the available treatment and disposal facilities.
