Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures

General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and protective gear.
Extinguishing Media: In case of fire, use water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, or polymer foam.
Flash Point: Not Available
Fire Hazard:
Combustion: Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Hydrogen fluoride

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

General Information: Respiratory protection not normally required. Wear impermeable gloves. Wear chemical safety spectacles or goggles. Can produce very slippery surfaces which may be hazardous to personnel.
Spills/Leaks: Do not allow spillage to enter drains and watercourses. If water is contaminated inform relevant authority immediately.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as in section 8.
Precautions: Avoid contact of vapor or liquid with red hot surfaces, flames, or electrical arcs, as this may give rise to toxic gases such as hydrogen fluoride. Do not use sodium or similar metal or heir hydrides for removing water from liquid. Other desiccants are acceptable. Where possible systems should be designed to reduce the risk of releases to the atmosphere.
Handling: Do not smoke eat or drink when handling.
Storage: Store in original, tightly closed, labeled container.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Exposure Limits: None
Ventilation: Recommend using in a well ventilated area.
Respiratory Protection: Where applicable, use in a closed system with vapor returns.
Eye Protection: Light eye protection recommended.
Gloves: Wear appropriate chemical resistant glove.
