Fomblin YVAC 3 MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET
SOLVAY SOLEXIS, Inc. 10 Leonards Lane Thorofare, NJ 08086 856-853-8119
Date Prepared: May 20, 2005 Product Name: Fomblin YVAC 3 Chemical Name: Mixture of Propene, 1,1,2,3,3,3-hexafluoro, oxidized, polymerized, and
polytetrafluoroethylene Chemical Family: Fluorocarbons, fluoropolymers Synonyms: Mixture Emergency Telephone: 800-424-9300 (CHEMTREC, 24 hours)
White grease. Thermal decomposition will generate hydrogen fluoride (HF), which is corrosive.
|Section 2 - Compositional information Name:Propene, 1,1,2,3,3,3-hexa- fluoro, oxidized, polymerized||CAS# 69991-67-9||Approximate Weight (% wt.): Proprietary|
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 No ill effects are expected.
Section 4 - First Aid Measures
Flush eyes for 15 minutes with copious amounts of water, retracting eyelids often. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.
Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water. Flush with lukewarm water for 15 minutes.
If symptoms of irritation, discomfort or overcome by exposure, remove affected person to fresh air. Give oxygen or artificial respiration as needed.
If conscious, drink three to four 8 ounce glasses of water or milk. Call a physician. If unconscious, immediately take affected person to a hospital. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
|Flash Point:||Not Applicable|
|Lower Explosive Limit:||Not Applicable|
|Upper Explosive Limit:||Not Applicable|
|Autoignition Temperature:||Not Applicable|
|Extinguishing Media:||Water (spray or fog), foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2).|
|Unusual Fire Hazards:|
Fluoropolymers will degrade upon prolonged heating or in a fire, liberating hydrogen fluoride (HF) and carbonyl fluoride (COF2). This gas is toxic if inhaled or it comes into contact with moist skin. HF has an ACGIH PEL TLV (8hr TWA) of 0.5ppm and a ceiling limit of 2 ppm (1.7mg/m3). COF2 has an ACGIH TLV of 2 ppm (5.4 mg/m3) and an OSHA PEL TWA of 2 ppm (5 mg/m3).
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.
Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures
Releases: In case of a release or spill, absorb material onto vermiculite or similar inert absorbent. Place spilled material into covered container for disposal. Dispose of according to applicable local, state and federal regulations. Extinguish all ignition sources and evacuate the area. Exercise caution; spill area may be slippery.
Section 7 - Handling and Storage
Wash hands after use and before handling food or applying cosmetics. Do not use tobacco products in the immediate area. Keep containers closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flames. Do not store near combustible materials.
Local Exhaust: Vent vapors or mists generated by processing away from operating personnel. Local exhaust ventilation at a rate of 50 feet per minute.
No occupational exposure 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 limitations made by NIOSH/MSHA or the manufacturer must be observed. Respiratory protection programs must be in accordance with requirements set forth in 29 CFR 1910.134.
ANSI Z87.1 approved safety glasses with side shields or equivalent.
Rubber or latex gloves recommended but not necessary.
Section 9 - Physical and Chemical Properties
Appearance: Grease Color: White Odor: Odorless Vapor Pressure: Less than 10-3 @ 20 C/68 F Vapor Density (Air=1): Not available Boiling Point: Not available Melting Point: Not available Specific Gravity: 1.9 Solubility in Water: Insoluble % Volatile by Volume: 0
Section 10 - Stability and Reactivity
This material is stable.
This material is not reactive.
Heat, sparks, flames, and other ignition sources; avoid heating above 290 C/554 F.
Alkali metals and halogenated compounds. Strong or non-aqueous alkali and Lewis acids above 100 C/212 F.
Thermal decomposition of this product will generate hydrogen fluoride (HF), which is corrosive, causing burns on contact with skin and other tissue.
