Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

First-aid measures

The following first aid recommendations are based on an assumption that appropriate personal and industrial hygiene practices are followed.
Remove person to fresh air. If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.
Skin Contact:
Wash affected area with soap and water. If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.
Eye Contact:
Flush eyes with large amounts of water. If signs/symptoms persist, get medical attention.
Do not induce vomiting unless instructed to do so by medical personnel. Give victim two glasses of water. Never give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media :
Ordinary combustible material. Use fire extinguishers with class A extinguishing agents (e.g., water, foam).
Unsuitable extinguishing media :
Not applicable.
Special Exposure hazards :
Not applicable.
Special instructions for firefighters :
Wear full protective equipment (Bunker Gear) and a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions :
Evacuate unprotected and untrained personnel from hazard area. The spill should be cleaned up by qualified personnel.
Ventilate the area with fresh air. For large spill, or spills in confined spaces, provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust vapors, in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice. Warning! A motor could be an ignition source and could cause flammable gases or vapors in the spill area to burn or explode.
Environmental procedures :
For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water. Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible.
Methods for cleaning up :
Contain spill. Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material. Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized person. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and MSDS.

Handling and storage

Avoid eye contact. Avoid skin contact. Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below Occupational Exposure Limits. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment. A no-touch technique is recommended. If skin contact occurs, wash skin with soap and water. Acrylates may penetrate commonly-used gloves. If product contacts glove, remove and discard glove, wash hands immediately with soap and water and then re-glove. Avoid breathing of vapors. Wash hands after handling and before eating.
Store away from heat. Store out of direct sunlight.

Exposure controls
1 Occupational exposure controls
Use in a well-ventilated area.
Respiratory protection
Under normal use conditions, airborne exposures are not expected to be significant enough to require respiratory protection
Hand Protection
Select and use gloves and/or protective clothing to prevent skin contact based on the results of an exposure assessment.
Consult with your glove and/or protective clothing manufacturer for selection of appropriate compatible materials.
Not determined
Eye/face protection
Avoid eye contact.
The following eye protection(s) are recommended: Indirect Vented Goggles

Disposal considerations

Waste Disposal Method: Reclaim if feasible. Incinerate in an industrial or commercial facility in the presence of a combustible material. As a disposal alternative, dispose of waste product in a facility permitted to accept chemical waste.
