4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention for any breathing difficulty.
Skin Contact
Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention if irritation develops.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
Ingestion Contact
Induce vomiting immediately as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Not considered to be a fire hazard.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Hazardous Combustion Products
If in contact with strong acids or steam under fire conditions, calcium fluoride may yield highly irritating fumes of hydrogen fluoride.
Protective Measure in Fire
In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8.
Environment
Ventilate area of leak or spill.
Spill Clean Up
Pick up and place in a suitable container for reclamation or disposal, using a method that does not generate dust.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Usage Descriptions
Storage Precautions
Handling Precautions
Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product. Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Process Conditions
- OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 2.5 mg (F)/m3 (TWA) - ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 2.5 mg (F)/m3 (TWA)
Respirators
If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a full face piece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn for up to 50 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids. glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face piece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Protective Gloves
Wear protective gloves.
Eye Protection
Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Protection
Wear clean body-covering clothing.
Hygienic Work Practices
No information found.
