First-aid measures

General advice inhalation: If breathed in, move person into fresh air. Artificial respiration and/or oxygen
may be necessary. Consult a physician.

Skin contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off with soap and water.
If skin irritation persists, call a physician.

Eye contact: Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a
physician.

Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Notes to physician: Treat symptomically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: water, foam.

Specific hazards: In fire conditions, toxic decomposition products may be formed. Rapid uncotnrolled polymerization may occur during a fire.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Further information: Isolate area. Evacuate personnel and keep upwind of fire. Cool containers/tanks with water spray. Shut off source of fuel, if possible and without risk.

Accidental release measures

NOTE: Review FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES and HANDLING (PERSONNEL) sections before proceeding with clean-up.
Use appropriate PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT during clean-up.

Safeguards (Personnel) : Wear personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions : Prevent further leakage or spillage.

Spill Cleanup: Remove all sources of ignition. Soak up with inert absorbent material. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. Wear personal protective equipment.

Accidental Release Measures : Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling (Personnel) : Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid breathing mist or dried down material. Wash clothing after use.

Handling (Physical Aspects) : Provide adequate precautions, such as electrical grounding, or inert atmospheres when material is used in the presence of flammable materials to prevent ignition.

Storage: Keep away from heat, sparks and flames. Keep refrigerated. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. If frozen, thaw at room temperature between 15-30°C (59-86°F) and roll drum through several revolutions every 8-12 hours to redistribute inhibitor until completely thawed. Do not store for more than one(1) week at these temperatures. Consume monomer or return to refrigerated storage.

Storage temperature : 8 - 12 °C (46 - 54 °F)

Additional transport information

Additional information
Special provisions / remarks / other:
Not regulated as a hazardous material by DOT. Discrepancies between hazard classification and transport classification(s) assessments are a result of differences in the regulatory texts.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering controls : Ensure adequate ventilation.

Personal protective equipment:
- Respiratory protection: Where there is potential for airborne exposures in excess of applicable limits, wear NIOSH approved respiratory protection.

-Hand protection: Material: Double layer gloves, polyvinylchloride/nitrile rubber. Permeation rate: 90 min

-Eye protection: Wear coverall chemical splash goggles and face shield when the possibility exists for eye and face contact due to splashing or spraying of material.

-Skin and body protection: Chemical-resistant boots. Complete suit protecting against chemicals.

-Protective measures: Eyewash facility and safety shower should be available.

Stability and reactivity

Possibility of hazardous reactions: polymerisation; Polymerization will not occur at ambient temperatures in the presence of inhibitors. Chemically stable, but will polymerize rapidly and exothermically in the presence of free-radical initiators.

Conditions to avoid : Elevated temperature

Incompatible materials : Oxidizing agents Free radical sources, Iron, Copper, Bases, Strong acids

Hazardous decomposition products: Hazardous decomposition products: Acetic acid , Phenol, Carbon monoxide

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal methods -Product: In accordance with local and national regulations. Do not dispose of waste into sewer. Must be incinerated in a suitable incineration plant holding a permit delivered by the competent authorities.

Waste disposal methods - container: Do not reuse empty container. Dispose of container properly. Empty containers may contain hazardous residue.
