Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
foam Dry chemical. Carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume 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 fire-fighters:
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. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling.
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: 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 contaminated material in accordance with regulations.
6.4 Reference to other sections:
For personal protection see section 8. For disposal considerations see section 13.

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. Ensure there is good room ventilation.
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.
7.3 Specific end use(s):
We are unaware of any specific end uses which go beyond the data reported in Section 1.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components or products of decomposition, with limit values related to the place of work which require monitoring
iso-Butyl methacrylate, cas no. 97-86-9
No Indicative Occupational exposure Limit Value (long-term) has been established by the EU. A number of national OELs have been established, mostly at 50 ppm (AT, ET, LT, SI, SV), which has been set by analogy to MMA. Norway has established the same value, while Denmark has set a lower OEL at 25 ppm.
