Administrative data

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If respiratory symptoms appear, seek
medical attention. If not breathing, administer artificial
respiration.
Emergency measure - Eyes: wash with water for 15 minutes, including under eyelids. If
irritation is apparent, seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: seek medical attaention. Do not induce vomiting and do not
give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, water fog.

Product arising from burning: Oxides of carbon and also some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protection by suitable clothing and positive pressure
breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing and eliminate all ignition
sources. Absorb liquid material on absorbent material (e.g.
vermiculite) and transfer to suitable containers for
disposal by incineration. Wash down contaminated areas with
plenty of water, using containment to avoid washings
reaching drains or surface waters.

Handling and storage

Handling: Protective clothing, goggles or safety glasses and gloves
should be worn when working with the material. When using
the commercial preparation in solvent, also use solvent
-resistant (e.g. PVA) gloves and work only in well
ventilated areas; respiratory protection will also be
required if the TLV workplace exposure limits for solvent
are approached or exceeded.

Storage: Store at ambient temperature, protected from moisture.
Commercial preparation in solvent should be stored only in
well-ventilated areas away from oxidising agents or ignition
sources (including static discharges).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The polymer will be stored and shipped only in styrene
solution: this solution will be supplied either in bulk
(tank loads, by truck delivery or 1000 litre rigid
containers for IBC) or in lesser quantities (220 litre steel
drums or 20 litre steel cans).
