Extinguishing Media: Use suitable extinguishing media for surrounding materials and type of fire. Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazard: Firefighters must wear full face, self-contained breathing apparatus with full protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Fumes from fire are hazardous. Isolate runoff to prevent environmental pollution. Special Fire Fighting Procedures: When heated to decomposition or on contact with acid or fumes, iron fluoride may emit highly toxic fumes of fluorine.
HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
Routes of Entry: Inhalation, ingestion, skin and eyes. Effects of Overexposure: To the best of our knowledge the chemical, physical and toxicological properties of iron fluoride have not been thoroughly investigated and recorded. Iron compounds have varying toxicity. Some iron compounds are suspected carcinogens. In general, ferrous compounds are more toxic than ferric compounds. Acute exposure to excessive levels of ferrous compounds can cause liver and kidney damage, altered respiratory rates and convulsions. Inorganic fluorides are generally highly irritating and toxic. Chronic fluorine poisoning, or “fluorosis”, occurs among miners of cryolite, and consists of sclerosis of the bones, caused by fixation of the calcium by fluorine. There may also be some calcification of the ligaments. The teeth are mottled, and there is osteosclerosis and ostemalacia. Large doses can cause very severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, aggravate attacks of asthma and severe bone changes, making normal movements painful. Some signs of pulmonary fibrosis are noted. Some enzyme system effects are reported. Irritants to the eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Loss of weight, anorexia, anemia, wasting and cachexia and dental defects are among the common findings in chronic fluorine poisoning. There may be and eosinophilia and impairment of growth in young workers. Symptoms of intoxication include gastric, intestinal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous complaints and rashes.
