First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.

Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Suitable extinguishing agents are foam, carbon dioxide, dry
powder and water.

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon and nitrogen oxides
together with some soot. Analysis of volatiles emitted on
heating at 150 deg C indicates high levels of methyl
methacrylate, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, and styrene.
At lower levels, isopropyl benzene, benzaldehyde, alpha-
methylstyrene, acetophenone and 2-methylbenzaldehyde are
detectable.

Product determined by test: Y

Protective equipment: Wear suitable protective clothing. A self contained
breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from the immediate vicinity.

Wear suitable protective clothing. (cf 2.3.1)

Avoid dust formation, damp down area with water. For
solutions, absorb using a suitable inert material (eg, sand
or soil).

Collect waste using mechanical means (industrial vacuum
cleaner) and place in containers for dispoal at an approved
landfill site or incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe good industrial hygiene. Avoid exposure to eyes and
skin. If exposure cannot be prevented or aqequately
controlled, use personal protective equipment (goggles,
gloves, apron). If respiratory equipment has to be used, it
must be capable of controlling exposure and be suitable for
the purpose (eg. EN149 FFP1).

Storage: No special precautions.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is not economically feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at an approved landfill site is possible (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be disposed of at an approved facility
equipped with waste gas treatment to remove nitrogen oxides.

(A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended. However, the substance is unlikely to have
any adverse effects on sewage treatment systems.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is returned to the manufacturer within the
original cartridge for recycling. (B612)

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effects.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: The cartridge containing the substance is returned to the
manufacturer for recycling (cf 6.2.1).
