First-aid measures

General:
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours.

Inhalation:
Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.

Skin Contact:
If skin irritation occurs consult a physician. Wash off immediately with soap and water.

Eye contact:
Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.

Ingestion: Call a physician immediately..

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Suitable extinguishing media
foam dry chemical, carbon dioxide

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
full water jet

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

5.3 Advice for firefighters Special fire fighting procedures:
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with
water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air.

Special protective equipment for firefighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep away sources of ignition. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol.

6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:
No data available.

6.1.2 For emergency responders:
No data available.

6.2 Environmental
Precautions: Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Larger quantities: Take up mechanically (by pumping). Smaller quantities and/or residues: Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous
earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose of contaminated material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling:
Do not breathe vapors. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not eat, drink or smoke during use. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point
and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Keep container tightly closed. Provide good room ventilation even at ground level
(vapours are heavier than air).

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Protect from the action of light. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage
containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability.Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding
30 °C.Can polymerize with intense heat release.

8.2 Exposure controls

Appropriate Engineering Controls:
For monitoring procedures refer for instance to "Empfohlene Analysenverfahren für Arbeitsplatzmessungen", Schriftenreihe der
Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz and "NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods", National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

Eye/face protection:
tightly fitting goggles

Hand Protection:
Material: butyl rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.3 mm) Break-through time: 480 min Guideline: EN 374
Additional Information: Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of
the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the
contact time., The above mentioned hand protection is based on special knowledge of the chemical and the intended handling of this product,
however, it still may not be suited for all workplaces. A qualified hazard assessment should be made prior to the onset of work in order to determine
the suitability of gloves for specific working environments and processes. Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of
degradation or chemical breakthrough.

Skin and Body Protection:
On handling of larger quantities: face mask, chemical-resistant boots and apron

Respiratory Protection:
Breathing apparatus in case of high concentrations short term: filter appliance, filter A

Hygiene measures:
Store work clothing separately. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Follow the usual good standards of occupational hygiene.
Clean skin thoroughly after work; apply skin cream.

Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity:
No data available.

10.2 Chemical Stability:
No decomposition if used as directed.

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Polymerization with heat evolution may occur in the presence of radical forming substances (e.g. peroxides), reducing substances, and/or heavy metal ions.

10.4 Conditions to avoid:
The product is normally supplied in a stabilized form. If the permissible storage period and/or storage temperature is exceeded, the product may
polymerize with heat evolution.

10.5 Incompatible Materials:
Peroxides, amines, sulfur compounds, heavy metal ions, alkalis, reducing agents and oxidizing agents.

10.6 Hazardous Decomposition Products:
None when used as directed.

Disposal considerations

General information:
Dispose of waste and residues in accordance with local authority requirements.

Disposal methods:
Waste is hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after consultation of the competent local authorities and the
disposal company in a suitable and licensed facility. Strictly controlled conditions during disposal or treatment to air, wastewater and waste. Do
not add wastewater to a biological wastewater treatment plant Bring wastewater containing AOX for professional disposal. The waste key
number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the
disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.

Contaminated Packaging:
Contaminated packaging should ideally be emptied; it can then be recycled after having been decontaminated. Packaging that cannot be cleaned
should be disposed of professionally. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for recycling.
