First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures

General advice

Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms are evidently caused by effects of the

product on the skin, eyes or respiratory system. Remove contaminated, soaked



Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of complaints get medical


Skin contact

Wash off immediately with soap and water. If skin irritation persists, call a


Eye contact

Flush eyes thoroughly with water.


Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical advice immediately.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Product has dermal defatting effect, May cause eye/skin irritation.

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed


Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons


5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

5.3. Advice for firefighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep away sources of ignition. Use breathing apparatus if

exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol.

6.2. Environmental precautions

Prevent product from getting into subsoil/soil. Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Larger quantities: Remove mechanically (by pumping). Use explosion-proof equipment! Smaller quantities and/or residues:

Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose

of in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections

For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling

Safe handling advice

Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible

mixtures may form in air. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with

water. Keep away from sources of ignition.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C. Protect

from the action of light. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen

(air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the

oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability. Can polymerize with intense

heat release.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

see section 8.2.

8.2. Exposure controls

For monitoring procedures refer for instance to "Empfohlene Analysenverfahren für Arbeitsplatzmessungen",

Schriftenreihe der Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz and "NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods", National Institute for

Occupational Safety and Health

Protective measures

Do not breathe vapours. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Hygiene measures

Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Follow the usual good standards of

occupational hygiene. Store work clothing separately. Use skin protective

preparation as preventive skin protection.

Respiratory protection

not required on normal handling

Hand protection

nitrile rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.33 mm), Break through time > 10 min

(EN 374)

butyl rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.7 mm), Break through time > 30 min (EN


In practice, due to variable exposure conditions, this information can only be an aid

to orientation for the selection of a suitable chemical protection glove. In particular,

this information does not substitute suitability tests by the end user.

Splash protection

neoprene gloves

General information

Gloves should be replaced regularly, especially after extended contact with the

product. For each work-place a suitable glove type has to be selected.

Eye protection

tightly fitting goggles

Stability and reactivity

10.1. Reactivity

see section 10.2.

10.2. Chemical stability

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

10.3. Possibility of hazardous reactions

Polymerization with heat evolution may occur in the presence of radical forming substances (e.g. peroxides), reducing

substances, and/or heavy metal ions. UV light causes radical polymerization.

10.4. Conditions to avoid

The product is normally supplied in a stabilized form. If the permissible storage period and/or storage temperature is

exceeded, the product may polymerize with heat evolution.

High temperature. Ultraviolet light. Keep away from direct sunlight.

Depolymerization begins at 200 °C

10.5. Incompatible materials

Radical producers such as peroxides.

Reducing agents.

Tertiary amines.

Heavy metals.

Oxidizing agents

Mineral acids.

10.6. Hazardous decomposition products

None when used as directed.

Under conditions of thermal decomposition: Methacrylates

Disposal considerations

13.1. Waste treatment methods


Waste is non-hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after

consultation of the competent local authorities and the disposal company in a

suitable and licensed facility.

Uncleaned packaging

Contaminated packages should ideally be emptied; it can be recycled after having been decontaminated. Packages that cannot be cleaned must be

disposed of in the same way as the substance. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of professionally. Uncontaminated packaging

may be taken for recycling.

Code of waste EWC

07 02 08

waste from the manufacture, formulation, supply and use (MFSU) of plastics,

synthetic rubber and man-made fibres - other still bottoms and reaction residues

Always check the given waste codes according to the actual conditions of

manufacturing, formulation or use in your facilities.
