Working with Hydrofluoric acid

If you work with Hydrofluoric acid (HF) you should know the first aid steps if you are exposed, use Calcium gluconate gel. Your lab should also have access to Calcium gluconate 2.5% gel.  Researchers can also order a Calcium gluconate wash fluid from the manufacturer Calgonate or a distributor.  Please contact the Department of Chemistry and/or EH&S if you have further questions. — A follow-up medical evaluation is required after exposure to HF.
