hardinparamedic: orbister: Oh yes indeed. Know what the standard treatment for a major HF burn is? If it gets to the bone you get immediate amputation at the next major joint.Who told you that?They mix calcium gluconate in a KY slurry at a ratio of 1ml CaGlu to 2ml KY and slather that on the wound every fifteen minutes. Hands get put in gloves filled with the stuff. They'll infiltrate Ca Gluconate into the tissue around the burn too with a tuberculin syringe at a dose of 0.5ml x cm3 area affected. When you get to the hospital, an anesthesiologist will put in an arterial line above the level of the injury and give you a massive dose of calcium gluconate intraarterially for the next few hours.I've never heard you get immediate amputation.
maxheck: Going back to the original premise... I, for one, am glad that there are no liquids in my automobile that might explode in a face-melting fireball when sprayed all over the engine.
Oldiron_79: palan: Cybernetic: Wiki says that when it burns, it releases hydrofluoric acid--which is truly scary stuff.I don't think I've ever heard about a fluoride compound that isn't incredibly scary.Look up Uranium Hexafluride.
KyngNothing: Apparently all the really cool chemicals hate the atmosphere...
