An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Hydrofluoric Acid (HF) Program

Pure hydrogen fluoride is a clear, colorless, corrosive liquid that has roughly the same weight as water (comparing equal volumes). It boils at 67 degrees Fahrenheit and, depending on the release conditions, can form a vapor cloud if released to the atmosphere. It has a sharp, penetrating odor that human beings can detect at very low concentrations (0.04-0.13 ppm(1), in the air. It is completely soluble in water, in which it forms HF, which, in concentrated solutions, vaporizes in air to form a noticeable cloud.

 Hydrofluoric acid (HF) is a highly corrosive liquid and is a contact poison.   It should be handled with extreme care (i.e., beyond what is generally required to handle other mineral acids). Owing to its low dissociation constant, HF as a neutral lipid-soluble molecule penetrates tissue more rapidly than typical mineral acids.   Because of the ability of hydrofluoric acid to penetrate tissue, poisoning can occur readily through exposure of skin or eyes, or when inhaled or swallowed. Symptoms of exposure to hydrofluoric acid may not be immediately evident.   HF interferes with nerve function, meaning that burns may not initially be painful.   Accidental exposures can go unnoticed, delaying treatment and increasing the extent and seriousness of the injury.

 HF is a calcium seeker.   A person can’t sense when it comes in contact with the skin, but it dissolves the calcium in the bone.   HF burns are not evident until a day later.   If not stored, handled and disposed of properly, HF can pose a serious threat to the health and safety of personnel, emergency responders and waste handlers.   Hence, it is important to thoroughly understand the properties of HF and follow all safety protocols to properly store and handle HF.
