Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If affected, remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult
sek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of clean water for an
extended time, not less than five minutes. Flush longer if
there is an indication of residual chemical in the eye.
Ensure adequate flushing of the eyes by separating the
eyelids with fingers and roll eyes in a circular motion.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash the affected area
thoroughly with plenty of soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use ABC dry chemical, foam or CO2. Water should be used to
keep fire-exposed containers cool. If a leak or spill has
not ignited, use water spray to disperse the vapours.

Product arising from burning: Oxides of carbon

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn with a full facepiece and operated in
a positive pressure-demand mode (or other positive pressure
mode). Personnel without suitable respiratory protection
must leave the area to prevent significant exposure to
hazardous gases from combustion, burning or decomposition.

In an enclosed or poorly ventilated area, wear self
contained breathing apparatus during clean up immediately
after a fire as during the attack phase of firefighting

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity and switch off
ignition sources.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards, as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Contain spill using proper dyking and solid adsorbents. If
spilled in an enclosed area, ventilate. Absorb spill residue
and small spills with an inert absorbent (eg. sand or soil).
Carefully transfer the spillage to waste containers
industrial vacuum machine. Containers filled with waste
material must be labelled in the same way as the original
substance containers.

Clean the spillage area.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration. Do not flush liquid into public
sewer, water systems or surface waters

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance. In particular to prevent routine inhalation of
fumes, mists and vapours.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

This should include chemical resistant (impervious) gloves
and eye protection (chemical goggles or goggles and an
8-inch (minimum) full face shield where spilling or
splashing may occur), and other impervious clothing, as
necessary, where prolonged or repeated contact cannot be

Wear an approved respirator (eg. an organic vapour
respirator, a full face air purifying respirator for organic
vapours, or a self-contained breathing apparatus).

Bond and ground all containers when transferring chemical.
Take precautions to prevent static discharge/spark to
prevent ignition of vapours.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store under a nitrogen blanket in a cool, well ventilated,
non-combustible storage area and out of direct sunlight.

Do not cut, puncture or weld on or near the container (even
if empty). Keep container away from heat, sparks and open
flames of any sort.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use and upright
to prevent leakage. Do not reuse empty container without
commercial cleaning or reconditioning.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 20-55 gallon steel drums.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Protect product from flames of any kind. Maintain proper
clearance when using heat devices, etc.

Gives off volatile vapours that are heavier than air and may
travel along the ground or may be moved by ventilation and
ignited by flame, sparks, heaters or other ignition sources
at distant locations (flashback potential).

Hot vapours may be susceptible to spontaneous combustion
when mixed with hot air. Ignition temperatures decrease with
increasing vapour volume and vapour/air contact time and are
influenced by pressure changes. Therefore, ignition may
occur below published ignition temperatures. Use of this
product in processes at elevated temperatures, vacuum if
subject to sudden ingress of air, sudden escape of vapour or
mist, etc., must be thoroughly evaluated to assure safe

Vapours may explode if ignited in an enclosed area.

Product can form a flammable vapour/air mixture at
temperatures at or above the flash point.

Exposing closed containers to heat may cause excessive
pressure resulting in explosive rupture. Emptied container
may still contain residual vapours or liquids which may
ignite or explode.

Run-off to sewer may cause a fire or explosion hazard.

Chemical reaction with water: There is no known reaction with water. The substance is
immiscible in water.

Dust explosion: Not applicable.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is a mononmer which is incorporated into a
polymer in a high conversion reaction (>95%) and so the
amount of in-process unreacted material is small.

Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not
economically or technically feasible, and such waste
material will be disposed of by incineration. In principle,
it may be possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use following
recycling through distillation.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is a
skin irritant. No chemical treatment is practicable to
neutralise the hazardous health effects.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg. sand or soil) should not be disposed of
by landfill.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
