First-aid measures

Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Risk of ignition. In case of splashes, remove contaminated clothing and plunge it into water immediately.

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Keep under medical surveillance. In case of problems : Hospitalise.

Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. If significant contact: Keep under medical surveillance. Hospitalise.

Eye contact: In case of eye contact, remove contact lens and rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Consult an ophthalmologist immediately.

Ingestion: If the subject is unconscious, do not induce vomiting Hospitalise.

Protection of first-aiders: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Protective suit

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: The product burns violently (protect people from possible projections)., Contact with combustible material may cause fire., Through thermal decomposition, formation of very reactive free radicals., Thermal decomposition giving flammable and toxic products, Carbon monoxide

Advice for firefighters:
Specific methods: Fight fire from a distance (more than 15 m). Containers/tanks should be cooled with water spray. In case of fire, remove exposed containers. Ensure a system for the rapid emptying of containers. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. Evacuate non-essential staff and those not equipped with individual protection apparatus. Use personal protective equipment. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Environmental precautions: Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).

Methods for cleaning up: After cleaning, flush away traces with water. Recover waste water for processing later.
Recovery: Never return spills in original containers for re-use. Shovel into suitable container for disposal. Small quantities : Soak up with inert absorbent material (Vermiculite, Clean sand). Do not confine. No sparking tools should be used.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Organic peroxides. Liquid. Flammable (when hot). Corrosive. Sensitizing. Harmful. Dangerous for the environment.
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide water supplies near the point of use. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby. Provide fire-blanket nearby. Provide electrical earthing of equipment.

Safe handling advice:
Strictly limit the quantities of product in the work area to those which are absolutely necessary for the work in hand. Great cleanliness in work areas is a necessary and important factor for safety. The product burns violently. Handle and open container with care (risk of overpressurization in containers). Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Protect from contamination. Never return any product to the container from which it was originally removed (risk of decomposition). Never mix peroxides directly with accelerators (risk of explosion). Add each component separately to the resin. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Use only clean equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in well insulated area (peroxide area) away from other substances. Remove all sources of ignition. Storage buildings must be built and equipped so as not to exceed the maximum proscribed temperature limit. Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not smoke. Use non-combustible construction materials. Keep/Store away from clothing/ combustible materials. Store in original container. Use only very clean containers and equipment free from traces of impurities. Never return unused material to storage receptacle. Do not reuse empty packaging to store other products. Protect from contamination. Provide earthing and safe electrical equipment. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide waterproof electrical equipment. Provide impermeable floor. Store in accordance with local regulations.
Storage period: < 6 Months
Do not store above: 30 °C, (to maintain the technical properties of the product).

Incompatible products:
Strong oxidizing agents Powerful reducers Acids Bases Amines Ash, dusts (risk of self-accelerating exothermic decomposition) transition metal salts Sulphur compounds, heavy metal compounds, heavy metals, rust

Packaging material:
Recommended: Stainless steel, High density polyethylene (HDPE), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)
To be avoided: Glass - Stoneware (risk of contents spurting or spraying out if container ruptures due to overpressurization), Ordinary
metals (ordinary steel), copper, rubber (natural or synthetic)
