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
arises.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water. Seek medical attention if irritation
arises.
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
cool.

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
flames.

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
air.

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
volatility.

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