First-aid measures

Eye Contact: In case of frostbite, immediately flush eyes with water; remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue flushing eyes for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention promptly, preferably from an ophthalmologist.

Skin Contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Move person to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration; if by mouth to mouth use rescuer protection (pocket mask, etc). If breathing is difficult, oxygen should be administered by qualified personnel. Call a physician or transport to a medical facility.

Ingestion: If swallowed, seek medical attention. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. In case of frostbite, immediately rinse lips and mouth with tepid water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention promptly.

Notes to Physician: Maintain adequate ventilation and oxygenation of the patient. Treat for frostbite, if present. No specific antidote. Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Do not extinguish. Stop flow of product and allow fire to burn out. Once product flow has stopped, small fires may be extinguished with: Water fog or fine spray. Dry chemical fire extinguishers. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. Foam.

Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry. Stay upwind. Keep out of low areas where gases (fumes) can accumulate. Do not extinguish. If flames are accidentally extinguished, explosive re-ignition may occur. Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and fire affected zone until fire is out and danger of reignition has passed. Fight fire from protected location or safe distance. Consider the use of unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Immediately withdraw all personnel from the area in case of rising sound from venting safety device or discoloration of the container. Eliminate ignition sources. For spills of liquefied gas, apply appropriate foam or vapor suppressing agent. Warning! Contact of water with liquefied gas can result in boiling, frothing, and rapid generation of vapor. For unignited vapor cloud, use water spray to knock down and control dispersion of vapors.

Special Protective Equipment for Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves). If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Container may vent and/or rupture due to fire. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel a long distance and accumulate in low lying areas. Ignition and/or flash back may occur.

Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion products may include and are not limited to: Carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide.

Accidental release measures

Steps to be Taken if Material is Released or Spilled: Ground and bond all containers and handling equipment. Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers. Contain spilled material if possible.

Personal Precautions: Evacuate area. Only trained and properly protected personnel must be involved in clean-up operations. Keep personnel out of low areas. Keep personnel out of confined or poorly ventilated areas. Keep upwind of spill. Ventilate area of leak or spill. For large spills, warn public of downwind explosion hazard. Check area with combustible gas detector before reentering area. Ground and bond all containers and handling equipment. Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spill or released vapor to avoid fire or explosion. Vapor explosion hazard. Keep out of sewers. Spills of this liquefied gas may form ice, which can plug drains and can make valves inoperable. Contact of water with liquefied gas can result in boiling, frothing, and rapid generation of vapor. Use appropriate safety equipment.

Environmental Precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater. .

Handling and storage

General Handling: Avoid contact with eyes. Wash thoroughly after handling. Electrically bond and ground all containers and equipment before transfer or use of material. Avoid breathing vapor. Keep container closed. Use with adequate ventilation. Do not enter confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Never use air pressure for transferring product. Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain vapors. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld, or perform similar operations on or near empty containers. Use of non-sparking or explosion-proof equipment may be necessary, depending upon the type of operation. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame.

Other Precautions: Never use air pressure for transferring product. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel a long distance and accumulate in low lying areas. Ignition and/or flash back may occur.

Storage
No smoking or open flame in storage area. Uninhibited monomer vapors can polymerize and plug relief devices. Maintain inhibitor level. This product is inhibited with: 4-tert-Butylcatechol No smoking, open flames or sources of ignition in handling and storage area. Purge oxygen from storage vessels before filling. Hold bulk storage under nitrogen blanket.
