First Aid MeasuresBack to Contents

Induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.

Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. DO NOT use mouth-to-mouth respiration. If breathing has ceased apply artificial respiration using oxygen and a suitable mechanical device such as a bag and a mask.

Get medical aid immediately. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Destroy contaminated shoes.

Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Handling and StorageBack to Contents

Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep containers tightly closed.

Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands before eating. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Wash clothing before reuse.
Hazards IdentificationBack to Contents

Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause heart disturbances, possibly leading to cardiac arrest and death. May cause hyperactive reflexes and muscular spasms. May cause respiratory arrest.

Causes skin irritation. Chronic inhalation may cause lung damage, bronchitis, and silicosis. May decrease blood clotting.

Causes eye irritation.

May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Ingestion of large amounts of fluoride may include salivation, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fever, labored breathing. Exposure to fluoride compounds can result in systemic toxic effects on the heart, liver, and kidneys. It may also deplete calcium levels in the body leading to hypocalcemia and death. May cause bone structure abnormalities.

Exposure Controls/Personal ProtectionBack to Contents
【Personal Protection】

Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to minimize contact with skin.

Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
【Exposure Effects】

Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause permanent bone structure abnormalities. May cause kidney injury. Chronic inhalation may cause lung damage, bronchitis, and silicosis. May decrease blood clotting. Chronic exposure to fluoride compounds may cause systemic toxicity.
【Exposure limit(s)】

TLV (as fluoride): 2.5 mg/m3 A4 (as TWA) (ACGIH 1998)
