Sorry to hear about your father. The April 2000 issue of SNAG News
(Society of North American Goldsmiths) has an article about
hydrofluoric acid. VERY nasty stuff. It is titled Hydrofluoric
Acid:Not for Amateurs. I think it is a reprint from Chemical Health
and Safety, by Eileen B. Segal, American Chemical Society,
January/February, pp18-23. The article also mentions an Allied
Signal’s booklet “Recommended Medical Treatment for Hydrofluoric Acid
Exposure.” It can be obtained from Allied Signal Inc.,P.O. Box 1053,
101 Columbia Road, Morristown, NJ 07962-1053. Or fax 973-455-6141.
Sounds like it is just what you are looking for. Hope it helps and
your father recovers.
