Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

First-aid measures

Eye Contact: IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists, get medical advice/attention.

Skin Contact: IF ON SKIN (or hair): Gently wash with plenty of soap and water. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical advice/attention.

Inhalation: IF INHALED: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a POISON CENTRE or doctor if you feel unwell.

Ingestion: IF SWALLOWED: Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Get immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

In case of fire: Extinguish preferably with dry chemical, sand, foam or carbon dioxide. Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media. Do not use water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture. May polymerise on heating. Sealed containers may rupture explosively if hot.

Advice for fire-fighters. A self contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Eliminate sources of ignition. Avoid breathing vapours. Wear protective gloves/eye protection/face protection.

Environmental precautions

Avoid release to the environment. Spillages or uncontrolled discharges into watercourses must be alerted to the appropriate regulatory body.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Do NOT absorb in saw-dust or other combustible absorbents. Transfer to a lidded container for disposal or recovery. Use only non-sparking tools.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Do not eat, drink or smoke at the work place. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not breathe vapour. Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Do not use compressed air to charge, bleed or handle the product. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use explosion proof electrical equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame, hot surfaces - No smoking. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities       

Store containers in a well-ventilated, cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Keep container tightly closed. IMPORTANT: Methacrylates stored in bulk must be kept in contact with air (oxygen). Never let bulk quantities freeze. Monitor stored material for loss of inhibitors. In order to prevent the risk of ignition/explosion/fire in the head space above the liquid; design equipment/instrumentation to be suitable for operation within flammable environments. If using inert/non-flammable gases in the head space (so as to avoid flammable air mixtures); ensure that the Oxygen concentration is about 8 % v/v. Oxygen concentrations of between 5-21 % v/v are generally recommended to ensure the stabilizer remains effective, but are dependent on the specific stabilizer type and storage conditions.

Storage Temperature: <30°C (Recommended: <20°C).

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity. Will exothermically polymerise in the presence of initiators.

Chemical stability. Stable in the presence of inhibitor.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Susceptible to polymerisation initiated by prolonged heating or the presence of catalyst.

Conditions to avoid. Heat and direct sunlight. Avoid storage conditions over the specified storage life and temperatures.

Incompatible materials.Polymerisation catalysts, such as peroxy or azo compounds, strong acids, alkalis and oxidising agents. Oxides and salts of transition metals. Organic Nitrogen containing compounds.

Hazardous Decomposition Product(s). Not available.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods. Dispose of contents/container to: hazardous waste in accordance with local, state or national legislation. Incinerate under approved controlled conditions, using incinerators suitable for the disposal of noxious organic waste.
