First-aid measures

Inhalation: not specifically applicable.

Skin contact: remove all contaminated clothing and footwear. Wash with water.

Eye contact: rinse with running water whilst keeping the eyes wide open (at least 15 minutes). If irritation persists, consult a doctor.

Ingestion: rinse mouth out with water. NEVER attempt to induce vomiting.

Protection of first-aiders: goves, boots, glasses with side shields, protective clothing.

Further information: Place contaminated clothing in a sealed bag for disposal.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

- suitable: all extinguishing agents can be used (water, foam, powders, carbon dioxide, sand ...).

- not suitable: Strong water jet.

Specific hazards: aqueous liquid. Does not present any particular risk in the event of a fire. Nevertheless, following the evaporation of water, the residue may burn: Toxic gases are released.

Specific fire fighting methods: cool down the containers/equipment exposed to heat with a water spray. Contain the extinguishing fluids by bunding (the product is hazardous for the environment).

Protection of fire-fighters: boots, gloves, goggles. Self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures


Protective equipment:

- appropriate gloves

- safety glasses

- suitable protective clothing.

For further information refer to section "Exposure-controls/personal protection".

Turn leaking containers leak-side up to prevent the escape of liquid.


Contain the spilled material by bunding (product is hazardous for the environment).

For further information, refer to section 13 "Disposal considerations".


- Recovery : Absorb the product onto porous material. Sweep up the product. Collect up the spilled product and place it in a spare container: suitably labelled. Keep the recovered product for subsequent disposal.

- Cleaning/Decontamination : Wash with plenty of water and detergent. Recover the cleaning water for subsequent disposal.

- Disposal: Dispose of materials or solid residues at an authorized site. Process the contaminated absorbent material as waste product.


Warning: this product may cause the floor to be slippery

Dry polymerized residues may be cleaned up with a high pressure water jet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures : Frequent renewal of the air in the workstation (> 10 times/hour).

Control parameters:

The registered substance is produced and handled in an aqueous solution containing residual Methanol.

Occupational exposure limits:

- Limits (France) : Methanol : VME : 260 mg/m3 (200ppm) VLE: 1300 mg/m3 (1000ppm)

- Limits (USA/ACGIH): Methanol: TLV (TWA) : 200 ppm. Risk of percurtaneous absorption.

- Limits (EU): Methanol : Exposure limit (8 hours): 260 mg/m3 (200ppm)

Surveillance procedures: the recommended limits SHOULD NOT be exceeded.

Personal protective equipment

- Respiratory protection: If exposure is likely to exceed the occupational exposure limit : Wear suitable respiratory protective equipment

- Hand protection: Appropriate gloves. Protective gloves must be chosen according to the function of the work station: other chemicals which may be handled, physical protection necessary (resistance to cutting, puncture, heat), dexterity required. The selection of gloves must take into account the extent and duration of use at the workstation. Use suitable chemical-resistant protective gloves (compliant with Standard EN 374-1). Contact a supplier whose gloves are approved to Standard EN 374-1.

- Eye protection : Safety spectacles with side shields.

- Skin and body protection : Protective clothing.

- Selection criteria: Protective equipment must be chosen according to current CEN standards and in cooperation with the supplier of protective

equipment. Personal protective equipment must be defined after risk assessment for the workstation.

Collective emergency equipment: Safety shower. Eye fountain. Emergency equipment and first-aid box with instructions readily available.

Hygiene measures: Wash as often as necessary. Do NOT eat or drink in the workplace.

Further information: The user is responsible for monitoring the working environment in accordance with local laws and regulations.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable at ambient temperature and under normal conditions of use.

Hazardous reactions:

- Conditions to avoid: No dangerous reactions known under normal conditions of use. See technical data sheet. May polymerise.

- Materials to avoid: acids

- Hazardous decomposition products: On combustion or on thermal decomposition (following the evaporation of water) releases: (Carbon dioxide (CO2)), (Carbon monoxide (CO)), (Carbon oxides (CO + CO2)).

Disposal considerations


Prohibition: Do NOT discharge waste into drains.

Destruction/Disposal: Dispose of in accordance with relevant local regulations. Incinerate concentrated residue at an installation suitable for the treatment of viscous liquids. Dispose of solid residues at a licensed site.


Prohibition: Do not dispose of the product at a rubbish tip.

Decontamination/cleaning: Clean using hot water and a foaming agent.

Destruction/Disposal: Recycle following cleaning or dispose of at an authorised site.

NOTE: The user's attention is drawn to the possible existence of local regulations regarding disposal.
