What are the protective measures for chlorotrifluoroethylene


Chlorotrifluoroethylene can be mixed with air to form an explosive mixture and can cause combustion and explosion when exposed to open flame and high heat. At high temperatures, the internal pressure of the container increases and there is a risk of rupture and explosion.


Fire extinguishing method for chlorotrifluoroethylene: cut off the gas source. If the gas source cannot be cut off immediately, do not allow the burning gas to be extinguished. Spray water to cool the container and, if possible, move the container from the fire to an open area. Have a mist of water. Vapours are heavier than air and tend to collect in low places. Vapours can spread over great distances, catch fire with the ignition source and cause re-ignition. Storage containers and their components can fly very far in all directions. If substances or contaminated liquids enter waterways, notify downstream users with potential water contamination, local health and fire officials and pollution control authorities. Cool exposed containers with a fine water spray beyond the safe explosion-proof distance. If cooling water does not work, evacuate to a safe area immediately.

Storage and transportation precautions for chlorotrifluoroethylene: Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. The temperature of the warehouse should not exceed 30°C. Keep away from sources of fire and heat. Avoid direct sunlight. Store separately from oxidisers, flammable and combustible materials. The lighting and ventilation facilities in the warehouse should be of explosion-proof type and the switches should be located outside the warehouse. Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire-fighting equipment. The use of spark-prone machinery and tools is prohibited. Pay attention to product names, bottle inspection dates and the use of advanced warehouses. Pay attention to loading and unloading during transportation to prevent damage to cylinders and accessories.

First aid for chlorotrifluoroethylene:

1. Skin contact: If there is frostbite on the skin, bathe in warm water, then apply frostbite cream and wrap with sterile sandpaper. See a doctor. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. When in contact with liquefied gas, reheat the contacted part by immersing it in warm water. Keep patient warm and quiet. Exposure or inhalation can cause delayed reactions. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of personal protection in relation to the substance and are aware of self-protection

2. Eye contact: If skin or eyes come into contact with the substance, flush immediately with water for at least 20 minutes.

3. Inhalation: Leave the scene and breathe fresh air. Give oxygen if breathing is difficult. When breathing stops, give immediate artificial respiration. Go to a doctor. If the patient ingests or inhales the substance, do not use mouth-to-mouth artificial respiration, use a small one-way valve respirator or other suitable medical respirator.

Protective measures for chlorotrifluoroethylene:

Engineering controls: The production process is airtight and well ventilated.

Respiratory protection: Wear a gas mask if the concentration in the air exceeds the standard. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for emergency rescue or escape.

Eye protection: No special protection is generally required.

Protective clothing: Wear overalls.

Hand protection: No special protection is normally required.

Other: Smoking is strictly prohibited at the work site. Supervise work in storage tanks or other high concentration areas.
