First-aid measures

General advice:
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position
(recovery position). Immediately remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.
On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, dry powder, water spray, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Risk of violent self-polymerization if overheated in a container.

Advice for fire-fighters:
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
In case of a fire in the vicinity a restabilization system should be used if the temperature in the storage
container reaches 45°C. Evacuate area of all unnecessary personnel. In case of a fire in the vicinity
evacuate all personnel in a greater area if the temperature in the storage container reaches 60°C.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Take appropriate protective measures.
Ensure adequate ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater. Contain contaminated water/firefighting
water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For large amounts: Pump off product. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance
with regulations.
Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental
regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Precautions for safe handling:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. The substance/ product may be handled only by appropriately trained personnel.
Facility parts must be checked for polymer residues and cleaned on regular basis in order to avoid hazardous reactions.
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Encapsulation or exhaust ventilation required. When filling, transferring, or emptying of containers,
adequate local exhaust ventilation is necessary. Vent waste air to atmosphere only through suitable separators. Check the condition of seals and
connector screw threads. Do not open warm or swollen product containers. Remove persons to safety and alert fire brigade.
The temperatures which must be avoided are to be considered. Protect against heat. Protect from direct sunlight. Protect contents from the
effects of light.
Ensure adequate inhibitor and dissolved oxygen level.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Substance/product can form explosive mixture with air. Ground all transfer equipment properly to prevent electrostatic discharge. Containers should be
grounded against electrostatic charge. It is recommended that all conductive parts of the machinery are grounded. Explosion-proof equipment is not
necessary when loading and processing of the product takes place at a minimum of 5 °C below the flash point.
Heated containers should be cooled to prevent polymerization. If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water. Emergency cooling must be
provided for the eventuality of a fire in the vicinity. Sealed containers should be protected against heat as this results in pressure build-up. Avoid influence
of heat.

Storage:
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Further information on storage conditions: Prior to storage ensure that the transfer equipment used and the intended storage containers do not contain
other substances/products. Before transfer to stock the identity of the product must be proved to be without doubt. The entrance to storage rooms is to
be granted only to appropriately trained personnel.
The stabilizer is only effective in the presence of oxygen. Maintain contact with atmosphere containing 5 - 21% oxygen. Never use tanks with inert-gas
installation for storage.
Risk of polymerization. Protect against heat. Protect from direct sunlight. Protect contents from the effects of light. Avoid UV-light and other radiation
with high energy. Protect against contamination.
All storage containers should at least be equipped with two high temperature alert devices.
Even if the product is stored and handled as prescribed/indicated it should be used up within the indicated duration of storage.

Storage stability:
Storage temperature: < 35 °C
Storage duration: 12 Months
The stated storage temperature should be noted.
Avoid prolonged storage.
This product should be processed as soon as possible.
Ensure adequate inhibitor and dissolved oxygen level.
The product is stabilized, the shelf life should be noted.
Do not store with less than 10 % headspace above liquid.
Storage stability is based upon ambient temperatures and conditions described.
Shelf life is limited; see product information leaflet.
Storage temperature: 45 °C
A restabilization system should be used if the temperature in the storage container reaches the indicated value.
Storage temperature: 60 °C
All personnel in a greater area should be evacuated if the temperature in the storage container reaches the indicated value.
