Hydrofluoric Acid Passport

Carry with You

Hydrofluoric acid is one of the most dangerous acids known. Working with hazardous chemicals such as hydrogen fluoride, hydrofluoric acid and inorganic fluorides requires special provisions for the first aid treatment. Every accident involving these substances can have dramatic consequences for the injured person.

Chemical burns from hydrogen fluoride, hydrofluoric acid and inorganic fluorides can be life threatening if the poisonous effects of the fluoride ions are not treated.

Not every physician has the necessary specialist knowledge to properly treat accidental HF exposure. Therefore, Merck provides a credit card-sized HF Passport, which sets out the correct medical treatment. Everyone who works with these materials should carry this HF passport.
