First-aid measures

IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention.

IF ON SKIN: Wash with plenty of soap and water. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical advice/attention. Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Call a POISON CENTRE or doctor if you feel unwell.

IF INHALED: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a POISON CENTRE or doctor if you feel unwell.

IF SWALLOWED: Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Get immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media: In case of fire, use water spray, foam, dry powder or CO2 for extinction. Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Flammable liquid and vapour. May polymerise on heating. Sealed containers may rupture explosively if hot.

Advice for fire-fighters

A self contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Eliminate sources of ignition. Avoid breathing vapours. Wear protective gloves/eye protection/face protection.

Environmental precautions: Avoid release to the environment. Spillages or uncontrolled discharges into watercourses must be alerted to the appropriate regulatory body.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Do NOT absorb in saw-dust or other combustible absorbents. Transfer to a lidded container for disposal or recovery. Use only non-sparking tools.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling. Do not eat, drink or smoke at the work place. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid breathing vapours. Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Do not use compressed air to charge, bleed or handle the product. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use explosion proof electrical equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities. Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed. IMPORTANT: Methacrylates stored in bulk must be kept in contact with air (oxygen). Never let bulk quantities freeze. Monitor stored material for loss of inhibitors. In order to prevent the risk of ignition/explosion/fire in the head space above the liquid; design equipment/instrumentation to be suitable for operation within flammable environments. If using inert/non-flammable gases in the head space (so as to avoid flammable air mixtures); ensure that the Oxygen concentration is about 8 % v/v. Oxygen concentrations of between 5-21 % v/v are generally recommended to ensure the stabilizer remains effective, but are dependent on the specific stabilizer type and storage conditions.

Storage Temperature: <30°C (Recommended:<20°C).

Incompatible materials: Polymerisation catalysts, such as peroxy or azo compounds, strong acids, alkalis and oxidising agents. Oxides and salts of transition metals. Organic Nitrogen containing compounds.
