Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Do not use water on material itself. Use water spray to knock-down vapors. Neutralize spilled material with crushed limestone, soda ash, or lime.
Reacts violently with water or strong bases (potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide).
Produces HF when exposed to water.
Do not use water on material itself. Use dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. If large quantities of combustibles are involved, use water in flooding quantities as spray and fog. Use water spray to knock-down vapors.
May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.).
May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). React vigorously and/or explosively with water. Produce toxic and/or corrosive substances on contact with water. Flammable/toxic gases may accumulate in tanks and hopper cars. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Vapor, substance, or decomposition products may cause severe injury or death. Effects may be delayed.
Seek medical assistance.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device.
