First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures
General advice
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. Take off all
contaminated clothing immediately.
Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of discomfort: Supply with
medical care.
Skin contact
If skin irritation occurs consult a physician. Wash off immediately with soap and
Eye contact
Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.
Do not induce vomiting. Consult a physician immediately.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Eye irritation, Skin irritation, difficulty breathing, coughing

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
Extinguishing media which must not
be used for safety reasons

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
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: Remove mechanically (by pumping). Use explosion-proof equipment! 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
Safe handling advice
Keep container tightly closed. Provide good room ventilation even at ground level
(vapours are heavier than air).
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Keep away from sources
of ignition 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.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Protect from the action of light. For brief storage periods the temperature must not
exceed 50°C; for longer storage periods, the temperature must not exceed 30°C.
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.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters
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

Protective measures
Do not breathe vapours. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
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
butyl rubber gloves (0.7 mm), Break through time 60 min (EN 374)
In practice, due to variable exposure conditions, this information can only be an aid
to orientation for the selection of a suitable chemical protection glove. In particular,
this information does not substitute suitability tests by the end user.
General 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.
Eye protection
tightly fitting goggles
Skin and body protection
On handling of larger quantities: face mask, chemical-resistant boots and apron

Stability and reactivity

10.1. Reactivity
see section 10.2.

10.2. Chemical stability
No decomposition if used as directed.

10.3. Possibility of hazardous reactions
Polymerization with heat evolution may occur in the presence of radical forming substances (e.g. peroxides), reducing
substances, and/or heavy metal ions.

10.4. Conditions to avoid
The product is normally supplied in a stabilized form. If the permissible storage period and/or storage temperature is
exceeded, the product may polymerize with heat evolution.

10.5. Incompatible materials
Free radical initiators.
Reducing agents.
Tertiary amines.
Heavy metals.
oxidizing agents
Mineral acids.

10.6. Hazardous decomposition products
None when used as directed.

Disposal considerations

13.1. Waste treatment 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.

Uncleaned packaging
Contaminated packages must be emptied as good as possible. They may then be
recycled after proper cleaning. Packages that cannot be cleaned must be disposed
of in the same way as the substance. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for

Code of waste EWC
07 02 08
waste from the manufacture, formulation, supply and use (MFSU) of plastics,
synthetic rubber and man-made fibres - other still bottoms and reaction residues
Always check the given waste codes according to the actual conditions of
manufacturing, formulation or use in your facilities.
