First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient immediately to fresh air. If breathing has
stopped, give artifical respiration, preferably
mouth-to-mouth. Use oxygen as required, provided a
qualified operator is available. Do not give epinedrine
(adrenaline). Contact a physician.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at
least 15 minutes, lifting eyelids occasionally to facilitate
irrigation. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Promptly flush skin with water until all chemical is
removed. remove any clothing contaminated with liquid and
wash before reuse.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Ingestion is an unlikely route of exposure and hazards are
unknown. Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to by a

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use any standard agent - choose the one most appropriate for
the type of surrounding fire. As for special firefighting
instructions, fireighters should use water spray to keep
fire-exposed containers cool and to knock down vapours which
may result from product decomposition.

Product arising from burning: Halogens, halogen acids and possibly carbonyl halides are
decomposition products. These are toxic and corrosive.
Hazardous polymerizations will not occur. A source of
ignition, such as lighted cigarettes, flames, hot spots,
welding or fire conditions may yield toxic and/or corrosive
composition products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Fire fighters should wear NIOSH-approved breathing apparatus
for protection against suffocation and possible toxic
decomposition products - proper eye and skin protection
should be provided.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Always wear recommended personal protective equipment.
Evacuate all unprotected personnel. Protected personnel
should remove any flames and shut off leak, if without risk,
and provide ventilation. Unprotected personnel should not
return until air has been tested and determined safe,
including low-lying areas.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid breathing vapours or liquid contact with eyes, skin or

Skin protection: Wear protective, impervious gloves and
clothing with an outer layer of MYLAR-coated Durafab (2nd
choice - PVA), if prolonged or repeated contact with liquid
is anticipated. Wash clothing promptly, if wet. Remove any
non-impervious clothing and wash before re-use.

Eye protection: For normal conditions, wear safety glasses.
Where there is reasonable probability of liquid contact,
wear chemical safety goggles. Contact lenses should not be
worn under such conditions.

Respiratory Protection: None generally required for
adequately ventilated work situations. For accidential
releases in non-ventilated situations, use self-contained
NIOSH approved breathing apparatus.

Do not puncture or drop containers, expose them to open
flame, excessive heat or direct sunlight. Use approved
cylinders only. Tank cleaning personnel should use only a
formal tank entry procedure based on recognized safety
principles. Leak testing should not be done with a
pressurized mixture of HFC-254fa and air. Use dry nitrogen
to leak test equipment pressurized with HFC-245fa.

Storage: Due to low boiling point of 15 °C, store in a cool,
well-ventillated area of low fire risk. Protect container
and its fittings from physical damage. Storage in
subsurface locations should be avoided. Close valve tightly
after use and when empty.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Disposable 15, 30 and 50 lb cylinders using a 150 psai
nitrogen pad. Returnable 2 and 123 lb. Cylinders using a 150

psai nitrogen pad. Recipients have the option of receiving
the returnable 2 and 123 lb. Cylinders unpressurized.
Returnable 1/2 ton and 1 ton cylinders which are not
pre-ressurized with nitrogen. Due to the low boiling point
of HFC-245fa, the 2, 15 and 50 and 123 lb cylinders will
have a liquid withdrawal tube for dispensing the material.
the 1/2 ton and 1 ton cylinders have both a liquid and a
vapour withdrawal valve for dispensing the material. Users
will have to use nitrogen pads to dispense the material from

the non-pressurized cylinders due to the low boiling point.

Transport: Not regulated. Transport in sealed correctly labelled
containers and prevent from falling over.

Cylinders of HFC-245fa will be shipped to customers in
Nitrogen pressurized cylinders. The transport code for
these types of cylinders is "Liquified gas, n.o.s.
(nitrogen, pentafluoropropane) US DOT ID No. UN 3163". Those
cylinders not pressurized with Nitrogen are not regulated.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable, the substance is consumed during the foam

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Neutralisation (ie. oxidation, hydrolysis) will result in
the production of hydrogen fluoride. Gas neutralisation is
necessary to neutralise this by-product.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Waste foam is generally disposed of by landfill.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is the recommended method of disposal.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable the substance is a gas.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance as such is not available to the general
public. Waste foam (containing the notified substance) in
consumer items will generally be disposed of via landfill.
