Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
Handling
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Protection
Wear appropriate chemical protective clothing.
Respirators
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
Small spills/leaks
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.
Stability
No data.
Incompatibilities
Reacts violently with water or strong bases (potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide).
Decomposition
Produces HF when exposed to water.

Fire.
Fire fighting
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.
Fire potential
May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.).
Hazards
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.
Combustion products
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
