First-aid measures

General advice
Remove soiled, soaked clothing immediately. 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.

Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of complaints get medical treatment.

Skin contact
Wash off immediately with soap and water. If skin irritation occurs consult a physician.

Eye contact
Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.

Do not induce vomiting. Contact a doctor immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
None known

Advice for firefighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

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

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

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.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Safe handling advice
Ensure the area is well ventilated. Keep container tightly closed.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from sources of ignition --- No smoking. Take precautionary measures
against 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.

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 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.

Exposure controls / personal protection

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

Protective measures
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale vapours.

Hygiene measures
Store work clothing separately. Remove soiled or soaked 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 (minimal thickness 0.6 mm), Break through time 300 min

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.

Splash protection
neoprene gloves

General information
In permeation tests butyl and nitril rubber gloves perform better than latex or natural rubber.
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

Reactivity/Chemical Stability
No decomposition when used as directed.

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.

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.

Hazardous decomposition products
None when used as directed.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Waste is hazardous and therefore particularly to be kept under surveillance. 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 packaging should be emptied optimally and after appropriate professional cleansing may be taken for reuse. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of professionally. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for recycling.

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.
