First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures
General advice
First aider needs to protect himself. Remove contaminated, soaked clothing. Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours.
Inhalation
Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.
Skin contact
Wash off with water and soap. Consult a physician if irritation persists.
Eye contact
Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.
Ingestion
Call a physician immediately.
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Skin sensitizer
4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
foam Dry chemical. Carbon dioxide

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

5.3. Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures:
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep away sources of ignition. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Larger quantities: Take up mechanically (by pumping). Smaller quantities and/or residues: Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose of in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe vapors. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C. Protect from the action of light. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability. Can polymerize with intense heat release.

7.3. Specific end use(s)
no

see section 8.2.
8.2. Exposure controls
For monitoring procedures refer for instance to "Empfohlene Analysenverfahren für Arbeitsplatzmessungen", Schriftenreihe der Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz and "NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods", National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

DNEL
Critical component / Routes of exposure / Workers Industry / trade / Note
1,4-butanediol dimethacrylate / Inhalation / 14.5 mg/m3 / Long-term - systemic effects
1,4-butanediol dimethacrylate / dermal / 4.2 mg/kg bodyweight/day / Long-term - systemic effects

Protective measures
Do not breathe vapours. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Hygiene measures
Store work clothing separately. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Follow the usual good standards of occupational hygiene. Clean skin thoroughly after work; apply skin cream.
Respiratory protection
Breathing apparatus in case of high concentrations, short term: filter appliance, filter A
Hand protection
Material: nitrile rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.11 mm)
Break-through time: 10 min
Additional Information: Suitable as spray protection.
Material: butyl rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.3 mm)
Break-through time: 480 min
Additional Information: Gloves should be replaced regularly, especially after
extended contact with the product., For each work-place a suitable glove
type has to be selected., Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there
is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.
Eye protection
tightly fitting goggles
Skin and body protection
On handling of larger quantities: face mask, chemical-resistant boots and apron

Disposal considerations

General information:
Dispose of waste and residues in accordance with local authority requirements.

Disposal methods:
Waste is hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after consultation of the competent local authorities and the
disposal company in a suitable and licensed facility. Strictly controlled conditions during disposal or treatment to air, wastewater and waste. Do
not add wastewater to a biological wastewater treatment plant Bring wastewater containing AOX for professional disposal. The waste key
number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the
disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.

Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should ideally be emptied; it can then be recycled after having been decontaminated.
