First-aid measures

General advice:
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Risk of ignition. In case of splashes, remove contaminated clothing and plunge it into water immediately.
Inhalation:
Inhalation of vapours/mists : Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. In case of persistent problems : Hospitalise.
Skin contact:
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water.
Eye contact:
Wash well-open eyes immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. Consult an ophthalmologist.
Ingestion:
Risk of severe pulmonary problems in case of accidental aspiration Do NOT induce vomiting. If swallowed, call a poison control centre or doctor immediately.
Protection of first-aiders:
In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Foam, Powder, Carbon Dioxide

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Flammable liquid., Heating may cause a fire., The product burns violently (protect people from possible projections)., Through thermal decomposition, formation of very reactive free radicals., Thermal decomposition giving flammable and toxic products, Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters:
Specific methods:
Fight fire from a distance (more than 15 m). Containers/tanks should be cooled with water spray. In case of fire, remove exposed containers.
Ensure a system for the rapid emptying of containers. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Special protective actions for fire-fighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. Evacuate non-essential staff and those not equipped with individual protection apparatus. Use personal protective equipment. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Environmental precautions:
Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Methods for cleaning up: After cleaning, flush away traces with water. Recover waste water for processing later.
Recovery: Shovel into suitable container for disposal. Small quantities : Soak up with inert absorbent material (Vermiculite, Clean sand). Never return spills in original containers for re-use. Do not confine. No sparking tools should be used.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Organic Peroxides Liquid. Flammable. Harmful. Irritant. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide water supplies near the point of use. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby. Provide fire-blanket nearby. Provide electrical earthing of equipment.
Safe handling advice:
Strictly limit the quantities of product in the work area to those which are absolutely necessary for the work in hand. Handle and open container with care (risk of overpressurization in containers). Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Protect from contamination. Never return any product to the container from which it was originally removed (risk of decomposition). Never return unused material to storage receptacle. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Never mix peroxides directly with accelerators (risk of explosion). Add each component separately to the resin. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in well insulated area (peroxide area) away from other substances. Storage buildings must be built and equipped so as not to exceed the maximum proscribed temperature limit. Use non-combustible construction materials. Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not smoke. Keep/Store away from clothing/ combustible materials. Store in original container. Use only very clean containers and equipment free from traces of impurities. Never return unused material to storage receptacle.
Do not reuse empty packaging to store other products. Provide earthing and safe electrical equipment. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide impermeable floor.

Storage period: < 6 Months, Storage temperature: < 30 °C (to maintain the technical properties of the product).

Incompatible products:
Strong oxidizing agents, Powerful reducers, Acids, Bases, Amines, transition metal salts, Sulphur compounds, Rust, ash, dusts (risk of selfaccelerating exothermic decomposition)
Packaging material:
Recommended: High density polyethylene (HDPE), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Stainless steel To be avoided: Ordinary metals (ordinary steel), copper, rubber (natural or synthetic), Glass - Stoneware (risk of contents spurting or spraying out if container ruptures due to overpressurization)
