First-aid measures

General advice: In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Oyxgen may additionally be given, by trained personnel, if it is available. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Skin: Flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean or destroy contaminated shoes.

Eye: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. If easy to do, contact lenses should be removed during the flushing, by trained personnel. Occasionally hold the eyelids apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing the entire surface of the eye and lids with water. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

Ingestion: Call a physician or a poison control center immediately. Induce vomiting only if directed by medical personnel. The patient should lie on their left side while vomiting to reduce the risk of aspiration. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: There are no data available that address medical conditions that are generally recognized as being aggravated by exposure to this material.

Attending physician should treat exposed patients symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: waterspray, foam, sand, dry chemical powder, CO2

Unsuitable extinguishing media: halones

Hazardous decomposition / combustion products: CO2, carbon monoxide. Methane, tert butanol, acetone, bis(2-hydroxyisopropyl)benzene, diacetylbenzene

Protective equipment: Firefighters must wear fire resistant protective equipment. Wear approved respirator and protective gloves.

Other information: Evacuate all non-essential personnel. Extinguish a small fire with powder or carbon dioxide then apply water to prevent re-ignition. Cool closed containers with water. Water used to extinguish a fire should not be allowed to enter the drainage system or water courses. After a fire, ventilate thoroughly the area and soak with water, clean the walls and metallic surfaces.

Fire and explosion hazard: CAUTION: reignition may occur. Decomposition under effect of heating (See also Section Hazardous decomposition products). If involved in a fire, it will support combustion. In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Do not breathe dust. For personal proctection, see Section Exposure Controls / Personal Protection.

Environmental precautions: Do not allow to enter drains or water courses.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Stop leakage if possible. Eliminate all sources of ignition, and do not generate flames or sparks. Sweep up and put it into a container for disposal. Avoid dust generation. Keep contents moist. The water should NOT be confined. Flush surroundings with large amounts of water and soap.

Other information: CAUTION: reignition may occur. Evacuate personnel to safe area.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Never weigh out in the storate room. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Do not breathe dust. Handle in well ventilated areas. Eliminate all sources of ignition, and do not generate flames or sparks. Keep away from reducing agents (e.g. amines), acids, alkalies and heavy metal compounds (e.g. accelerators, driers, metal soaps). Keep product and emptied container away from heat and sources of ignition. Confinement must be avoided. Avoid incompatible materials (See Section Stability and Reactivity).

Fire and explosion prevention: Avoid dust generation. Do not cut or weld on or near this container even when empty.

Conditions for safe storage: Store in accordance with local/national regulations. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs. Store in a dry well ventilated place away from sources of heat and direct sunlight. Store separate from other chemicals. Keep only in the original container.

Storage: For maximum quality store below: 20 oC.

Other information: It is recommended to use electrical equipment of temperature group T3. However, autoignition can never be excluded. Wash hands thoroughly after handling or contact. Keep working clothing separately and do not take them home.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:
Ensure good ventilation and local exhaustion of the working area. Explosion proof ventilation recommended.

Personal protection:
Respiratory: In case of dust formation use dust mask.
Hand : Wear suitable protective gloves of neoprene or synthetic rubber.
Eye: Wear eye/face protection.
Skin and body: Wear suitable protective clothing.
Other information: Emergency-shower and facilities for rinsing eyes must be accessible. Launder clothes before reuse.

In this coutnry no exposure limit has been established.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: SADT - (Self accelerating decomposition temperature) is the lowest temperature at which self accelerating decomposition may occure with a substance in the packaging as used in transport. A dangerous self-accelerating decomposition reaction and, under certain circumstances, explosion or fire can be caused by thermal decomposition at and above the following temperature: 80 oC. Contact with incompatible substances can cause decomposition at or below the SADT 80 oC

Conditions to avoid: To maintain quality store in original closed container below: 20 oC. Confinement must be avoided.

Incompatible materials: Avoid contact with rust, iron and copper. Contact with incompatible materials such as acids, alkalies, heavy metals and reducing agents will result in hazardous decomposition. Do not mix with peroxide accelerators. Use only Stainless steel 316 PP polyethylene or glass-lined equipment. Contact AkzoNobel for more information.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Polymerization does not occur.

Hazardous decomposition products: Hazardous decomposition products: methane, tert-butanol, acetone, bis(2-hydroxyisopropyl)benzene, diacetylbenzene

Other information: Emergency procedures will vary depending upon conditions. The customer must have an emergency response plan in place. Contact AkzoNobel for assistance with developing an emergency response plan.

Disposal considerations

Product: Due to the high risk of contamination recycling/recovery is not recommended. Waste disposal in accordance with regulations (most probably controlled incineration).

Contaminated packaging: According to local regulations. Emptied container might retain product residues. Follow all warnings even after the container is emptied.

Other information: For further advice contact manufacturer.

Waste code number: Please refer to your specific industry in the European Waste Catalogue.
