Hydrofluoric acid acts differently from all other acids. The onset of injury proceeds inconspicuously but with grave effects. Hydrofluoric acid is highly corrosive to the skin and can produce first-degree burns. The pain from burns may be delayed for several hours, during which time the acid will burn deep into the skin. Burns may not become apparent for one to twenty-four hours and may appear as reddened, pasty white, blistered, or charred. Hydrofluoric acid can damage muscles, ligaments, and bone in its progression after skin exposure.
