TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE

ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS

PREVENTION

FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING

FIRE Highly flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray, carbon dioxide
EXPLOSION Vapour/air mixtures are explosive.
Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Do NOT use compressed air for filling, discharging, or handling.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION
Ventilation.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN

Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible and may accumulate in lowered spaces causing a deficiency of oxygen.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms toxic and corrosive gases including hydrogen fluoride . Reacts with strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 100 ppm as TWA (ACGIH 2007).
MAK not established.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:


INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20°C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is mildly irritating to the eyes .

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:

PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES

Boiling point: 58°C
Density: 1.4
g/l
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, kPa at 20°C: 31.7
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 8.5
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 3.3
Flash point: -17°C c.c.

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA


N O T E S

Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated adequately. High concentrations in the air cause a deficiency of oxygen with the risk of unconsciousness or death. Check oxygen content before entering area.
Transport Emergency Card: TEC (R)-30GF1-I+II
