Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artifical

respiration, preferably mouth to mouth. If breathing is

difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15

minutes. Get medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15

minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get

medical attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Give two glasses of water. Do not induce vomiting. Get

medical attention.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is consumed in the polymerization process. No

recycling/recovery is needed.  In the event of spills, the

substance will be decomposed due to hydrolysis by moisture

in air, recovery will not be possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Exposure of substance to air will result in decomposition.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: No discharge will occur due to incorporation of the

deactivated substance being incorporated into the polymer.

The substance is easily destructed in the presence of oxygen

and/or water resulting in hydrolysis of the molecule or

formation of oxodimers.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: No incineration treatment will be needed due to the

deactivated substance being incorporated into the polymer.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: No discharge is made.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: No incineration is needed.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not needed because no waste is discharged into water system.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: None
