First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. Administer oxygen
if breathing becomes difficult. Seek medical attention. In
all cases, remove contaminated clothing.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water. Seek medical attention if irritation
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water. Seek medical attention if irritation
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Seek medical attention if
adverse symptoms arise.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Dry chemical or foam
should be used. Spray adjacent drums with water to keep

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Combustion products may
contain hydrogen fluoride gas and other toxic fluorine
compounds together with some carbon oxides.

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: A breathing apparatus should be worn.
Evacuate personnel from the vicinity.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from the vicinity. The substance is a
volatile liquid which will readily evaporate to give high
vapour concentrations. The vapour is heavier than air and
may accumulate in low-lying areas. Wear a breathing
apparatus, contain spillage and absorb in inert material
(eg. sand, earth, vermiculite). Dispose of waste by
incineration. Switch off all sources of ignition and naked

Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure good ventilation when handling. Do not breathe
vapour, the substance is a volatile liquid which is weakly
anaesthetic at high concentrations (~10%).

Storage: Store in stainless steel tanks, cooled to 5 deg C.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Other dangers: The liquid is not flammable but it is
possible that the vapour may form a flammable mixture in

Chemical reaction with water: Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Spent or contaminated material may be returned to the
manufacturer for reclamation.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method. An approved facility with waste gas
treatment to remove hydrogen fluoride and other
fluoro-compounds should be used.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended. However, if the substance should
accidentally enter a water purification system no
unfavourable effects are envisaged due to its high

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