First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures
General advice
Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms are evidently caused by effects of the
product on the skin, eyes or respiratory system. Remove contaminated, soaked
Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of complaints get medical
Skin contact
Wash off immediately with soap and water. If skin irritation persists, call a
Eye contact
Flush eyes thoroughly with water.
Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical advice immediately.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Product has dermal defatting effect, May cause eye/skin irritation.

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons

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
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.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Prevent product from getting into subsoil/soil. Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

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

6.4. Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Safe handling advice
Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible
mixtures may form in air. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with
water. Keep away from sources of ignition.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C. 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. Can polymerize with intense
heat release.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters
see section 8.2.

8.2. Exposure 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

Protective measures
Do not breathe vapours. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Hygiene measures
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Follow the usual good standards of
occupational hygiene. Store work clothing separately. Use skin protective
preparation as preventive skin protection.
Respiratory protection
not required on normal handling
Hand protection
nitrile rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.33 mm), Break through time > 10 min
(EN 374)
butyl rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.7 mm), Break through time > 30 min (EN
In practice, due to variable exposure conditions, this information can only be an aid
to orientation for the selection of a suitable chemical protection glove. In particular,
this information does not substitute suitability tests by the end user.
Splash protection
neoprene gloves
General information
Gloves should be replaced regularly, especially after extended contact with the
product. For each work-place a suitable glove type has to be selected.
Eye protection
tightly fitting goggles

Stability and reactivity

10.1. Reactivity
see section 10.2.

10.2. Chemical stability
No decomposition if stored and applied 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. UV light causes radical polymerization.

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.
High temperature. Ultraviolet light. Keep away from direct sunlight.
Depolymerization begins at 200 °C

10.5. Incompatible materials
Radical producers such as peroxides.
Reducing agents.
Tertiary amines.
Heavy metals.
Oxidizing agents
Mineral acids.

10.6. Hazardous decomposition products
None when used as directed.
Under conditions of thermal decomposition: Methacrylates

Disposal considerations

13.1. Waste treatment methods
Waste is non-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.

Uncleaned packaging
Contaminated packages should ideally be emptied; it can be recycled after having been decontaminated. Packages that cannot be cleaned must be
disposed of in the same way as the substance. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of professionally. Uncontaminated packaging
may be taken for recycling.

Code of waste EWC
07 02 08

waste from the manufacture, formulation, supply and use (MFSU) of plastics,
synthetic rubber and man-made fibres - other still bottoms and reaction residues
Always check the given waste codes according to the actual conditions of
manufacturing, formulation or use in your facilities.
