Effects of Over-exposure Eye contact: Eye contact may cause slight irritation. Skin contact: Skin contact may cause slight irritation. Inhalation: Inhalation of vapors or mists may cause respiratory tract irritation. Ingestion: This is unlikely, but should it occur, no ill effects are expected. Chronic Health Effects Summary: Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: No known conditions are aggravated by this material.
Eyes: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of flowing water for at least 15 minutes, retracting eye lids often. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Skin: Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water. Flush with luke warm water for 15 minutes. Inhalation: If symptoms of irritation or discomfort are experienced, or person is overcome by exposure, remove at once to fresh air. Give oxygen or artificial respiration as needed. Ingestion: If conscious, drink three to four 8 ounce glasses of water or milk. Call physician at once. If unconscious, immediately take affected person to a hospital. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Flammability classification: Not classified. Flash Point/Method: Not applicable Auto-Ignition Temperature: Not applicable Flammable Limits: Lower: Not applicable Upper: Not applicable Extinguishing Media: Water (spray or fog), foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) Special Conditions to Avoid: High temperatures Unusual Fire Hazards: Fluoropolymers will degrade upon prolonged heating or in a fire, liberating carbonyl fluoride and hydrogen fluoride (HF). This gas is toxic if inhaled or it comes into contact with moist skin. HF has an ACGIH TLV ceiling limit of 3 ppm (2.6 mg/m3) and an OSHA PEL TWA of 3 ppm. Carbonyl fluoride has an ACGIL TLV and OSHA PEL TWA of 2 ppm (5 mg/m3). Firefighting procedures: Use self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and skin protection for acid gas exposure. Do not enter fire area without proper protection. Fight fire from safe distance. If possible, air monitoring should be performed.
Release response: In case of a release or spill, absorb material onto vermiculite or similar inert absorbent. Place spilled material into covered container for disposal. Extinguish all ignition sources and evacuate the area. Exercise caution, spill area may be slippery. Recommended disposal: Dispose according to applicable local, state/provincial and federal regulations.
Storage and handling: Store in sealed containers. Do not store near combustible materials. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flames. Wash hands after use and before handling food or applying cosmetics. Do not use tobacco products in the immediate area. Do not contaminate cigarette or cigar products with the product because it will decompose in the heat of the cigarette (or cigar) to HF which is very toxic.
ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (8 hour time weighted average) None established OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (8 hour time weighted average) None established Engineering Controls: Ventilation requirements: Local exhaust, vent vapors or mists generated by processing away from operating personnel. Local exhaust ventilation at a rate of 50 feet per minute. Personal Protection: Respiratory Protection: No occupational standards have been developed for this material. In situations where exposure to vapors or mists is likely, NIOSH/MSHA approved respirators are recommended. Respirator use limitation made by NIOSH/MSHA or the manufacturer must be observed. Respiratory protection programs must be in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.134. Skin: Rubber or latex gloves recommended but not necessary. Eye: ANSI 87.1 approved safety glasses with side shields or equivalent

Chemical Stability: The product is stable. Reactivity: This material is not reactive. Conditions to Avoid: Heat, sparks, flames, and other ignition sources; avoid heating above 290 °C (554 °F) Incompatibility (materials to avoid): Alkali metals and halogenated compounds. Strong or non-aqueous alkali and Lewis acids above 100 °C (212 °F). Hazardous Products of Deposition: Thermal decomposition of this product will generate hydrogen fluoride (HF) which is corrosive, causing burns on contact with skin and other tissues. Reactions with Air and Water: None known
