First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: carbon dioxide, foam, dry powder, water spray
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Cool endangered containers with water-spray. Self-polymerization if overheated in a container.

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

Further information:
The product may undergo spontaneous polymerization at high temperatures. Polymerization is exothermic and may cause damage to the container and/or release of thermal decomposition products. If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water.
Remove product from areas of fire, or otherwise cool containers with water in order to avoid pressure build up due to heat. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.
In case of a fire in the vicinity a restabilization system should be used if the temperature in the storage container reaches 45°C. Evacuate area of all unnecessary personnel. In case of a fire in the vicinity evacuate all personnel in a greater area if the temperature in the storage container reaches 60°C.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Breathing protection required. Avoid inhalation. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Take appropriate protective measures.

Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater. Contain contaminated water/firefighting water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Correctly dispose of recovered product immediately.
For large amounts: Pump off product. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.
Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. The substance/ product may be handled only by appropriately trained personnel.
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. When filling, transferring, or emptying of containers, adequate local exhaust ventilation is necessary. Vent waste air to atmosphere only through suitable separators. Check the condition of seals and connector screw threads. Facility parts must be checked for polymer residues and cleaned on regular basis in order to avoid hazardous reactions. Encapsulation or exhaust ventilation required.
Protect contents from the effects of light. Protect from direct sunlight. Protect against heat. Do not open warm or swollen product containers. Remove persons to safety and alert fire brigade. The temperatures which must be avoided are to be considered.
Ensure adequate inhibitor and dissolved oxygen level.
Because of the possible separation from the stabilizer the product should never be partially melted and taken. Ensure that there is no crystallized product in the container before use. Obtain Information from supplier/ manufacturer before dissolving totally or partially crystallized product. The ambient temperature of the container may not exceed the stated temperature limit when melting the product or keeping it at moderate temperature.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Substance/product can form explosive mixture with air. It is recommended that all conductive parts of the machinery are grounded.
Ground all transfer equipment properly to prevent electrostatic discharge. Containers should be grounded against electrostatic charge. Vapours may form ignitable mixture with air. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid influence of heat.
Heated containers should be cooled to prevent polymerization. If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water. Emergency cooling must be provided for the eventuality of a fire in the vicinity. Sealed containers should be protected against heat as this results in pressure build-up. Ignitable mixtures can be formed in the emptied container.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Further information on storage conditions: Prior to storage ensure that the transfer equipment used and the intended storage containers do not contain other substances/products. Before transfer to stock the identity of the product must be proved to be without doubt. The entrance to storage rooms is to be granted only to appropriately trained personnel. The stabilizer is only effective in the presence of oxygen. Maintain contact with atmosphere containing 5 - 21% oxygen. Never use tanks with inert-gas installation for storage.
Risk of polymerization. Protect against heat. Protect from direct sunlight. Protect contents from the effects of light. Avoid UV-light and other radiation with high energy. Protect against contamination.
All storage containers should at least be equipped with two high temperature alert devices.
Even if the product is stored and handled as prescribed/indicated it should be used up within the indicated duration of storage.

Storage stability:
Storage temperature: 10 - 35 °C
Storage duration: 12 Months
The stated storage temperature should be noted.
Avoid prolonged storage.
This product should be processed as soon as possible.
Ensure adequate inhibitor and dissolved oxygen level.
Do not store with less than 10 % headspace above liquid.
Storage stability is based upon ambient temperatures and conditions described.
It is recommended to keep a safe distance of +2 degrees above the crystallization range.
The product is stabilized, the shelf life should be noted.
Protect from temperatures below: 0 °C
The packed product must be protected from temperatures below the indicated one.
Protect from temperatures above: 40 °C
The packed product must be protected against exceeding the indicated temperature.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls:
Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

Hand protection:
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
