First-aid measures

Inhalation: If symptomatic, move to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.
Eyes: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention. If molten material contacts the eye, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin: Wash with soap and water. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. If burned by contact with molten material, cool as quickly as possible. Do not peel material from skin. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Seek medical advice.
Note to Physicians: Burns should be treated as thermal burns. The material will come off as healing occurs; therefore, immediate removal from the skin is not necessary.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide
Special Fire-Fighting Procedures: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.
Hazardous Combustion Products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Powdered material may form explosive dust-air mixtures.

Accidental release measures

Use personal protective equipment. Sweep up and place in a clearly labeled container for chemical waste.

Handling and storage

Personal Precautionary Measures: Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid contact with molten material. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Prevention of Fire and Explosion: Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. In the United States of America, refer to NFPA® Pamphlet No. 654, "Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions in the Chemical, Dye, Pharmaceutical, and Plastics Industries."
Storage: Keep container closed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Ventilation: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.
Respiratory Protection: If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn. In the United States of America, if respirators are used, a program should be instituted to assure compliance with OSHA Standard 63 FR 1152, January 8, 1998. Respirator type: Air-purifying respirator with an appropriate, government approved (where applicable), air-purifying filter, cartridge or canister. Contact health and safety professional or manufacturer for specific information.
Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). Wear a face shield when working with molten material.
Skin Protection: It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize skin contact., When material is heated, wear gloves to protect against thermal burns.
Recommended Decontamination Facilities: eye bath, washing facilities

Stability and reactivity

Material reacts with strong oxidizing agents.
Hazardous Polymerization:
Will not occur.

Disposal considerations
