First-aid measures

Eyes: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.

Inhalation: Move exposed person to fresh air. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention immediately.

Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If conscious, rinse out mouth with water. Get medical attention immediately.

Note to Physicians: No specific treatment. Treat symptomatically. Contact poison treatment specialist immediately if large quantities have been ingested or inhaled.

Fire-fighting measures

Flammable Properties Not available

Extinguishing Media: Use dry chemical, C02, water spray (FOG) or foam

Specific Hazards Arising from Chemical: Elevated temperatures can lead to the formation of irritating fumes and vapors. Decomposition products may include the following materials: Carbon dioxide and Carbon monoxide.

Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Shut off all ignition sources. No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental Precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution.

Methods for Containment: Stop leak if without risk.

Methods for Cleanup: Move containers from spill area. Approach release from upwind. Absorb with an inert dry material and place
in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling Procedures:
Eating, drinking, and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Use only with adequate ventilation. Use non-sparking tools.

Shipping and Storing Procedures:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area. Keep in the original
container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials. Do not store in unlabeled containers. Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Empty containers that retain product residue may be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Engineering Controls:
Material should be handled in enclosed vessels and equipment. Use only in adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.

Eye/Face Protection, Skin Protection:
Chemical goggles or face shield.
Chemical resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times. Coveralls, apron, and boots as necessary to minimize contact.

Respiratory Protection:
Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicated this is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels.

General Hygiene:
Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable under normal conditions
Polymerisation: No polymerisation
Incompatibility: Strong acids and oxidising materials
Conditions to avoid: High temperatures
Hazardous decomposition products: Smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, aldehydes and other products of incomplete combustion.

Disposal considerations

The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever possible. Treatment, storage, transportation and disposal must be in accordance with applicable Federal, State/Provincial, and Local regulations.
