    4. First-aid measures

    4.1 Description of necessary first-aid measures

    General advice

    Medical attention is required. Consult a doctor. Show this safety data sheet (SDS) to the doctor in attendance.

    If inhaled

    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.

    Following skin contact

    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer immediately for medical attention.

    Following eye contact

    Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.

    Following ingestion

    Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention.

    4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

    Inhalation causes irritation of nose and throat. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Contact with eyes (particularly by dust) causes irritation and possible transient corneal injury. Contact of solid with dry skin causes mild irritation; strong solutions can cause marked irritation, even a superficial burn. (USCG, 1999)

    10. Stability and reactivity

    10.1 Reactivity

    Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes of chlorine (see ICSC 0126). The solution in water is a weak base. Attacks zinc in the presence of water. This produces flammable/explosive gas (hydrogen - see ICSC 0001). Dissolves violently in water with liberation of much heat.

    10.2 Chemical stability

    no data available

    10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

    Bromine trifluoride rapidly attacks calcium chloride [Mellor 2 Supp. 1:164, 165 1956]. Long term exposure of calcium chloride solution upon a zinc coated galvanized iron vessel caused slow evolution of hydrogen which ignited and exploded [Bretherick, 5th Ed., 1995].
