First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move the exposed person to fresh air at once. If respiratory problems, artificial respiration/oxygen. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.
Skin contact: Wash off promptly and flush contaminated skin with water. Promptly remove clothing if soaked through and flush skin with water. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. After contact with skin, remove product mechanically.
Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: If conscious, drink plenty of water. Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects: Product may hydrolyse on contact with moisture and upon contact with bodily fluids to produce methanol, which is readily and rapidly absorbed at all exposure routes and is toxic by all routes. Therefore, consider the signs/symptoms of methanol poisoning and also observe the known latency period of several days.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment: Get medical attention immediately. If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool.
Suitable extinguishing media: Alcohol resistant foam. Carbon dioxide, Dry chemical.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Avoid water in straight hose stream; will scatter and spread fire.
Specific hazards during fire fighting: Vapors are flammable and heavier than air. Vapors may travel across the ground and reach remote ignition sources causing a flashback fire danger. Ground container and transfer equipment to eliminate static electric sparks.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Product may charge electrostatically during pouring or filling. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Extinguish and do not turn on any ignition source until the area is determined to be free from fire or explosion hazards. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid contact with liquid and vapors. Use personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions: Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Absorb spillage with suitable absorbent material. Shovel up and place in a container for salvage or disposal.
Further information: Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Do not breathe vapor/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Wash hands after handling. Material can accumulate static charges which may cause an electrical spark (ignition source). Use proper bonding and/or grounding procedures. See Section "Exposure controls/personal protection" for Personal Protective Equipment.
Storage conditions: Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Keep container closed. Store in original container.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in tightly closed original container in a dry and cool place.
Storage Stability: Material is stable under normal conditions

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate Engineering Controls: Provide eyewash station and safety shower. General (mechanical) room ventilation is expected to be satisfactory if handled at low temperatures or in covered equipment. Provide adequate ventilation if fumes or vapors are generated.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
General information: Use only in well-ventilated areas. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using the product. Wash hands after handling. Practice good housekeeping.
Eye/face protection: Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166 Use face shield in case of splash risk.
Skin protection/Hand Protection: Advice: This recommendation is valid only for our Product as delivered. If this product will be mixed with other substances you need to contact a supplier of CE approved protective gloves.
Material: 898 Butoject; Minimum break through time: 480 min; Glove thickness: 0,7 mm; Guideline: EN 374
Other: Safety shoes Wear suitable protective clothing.
Respiratory Protection: Respirator with a vapour filter (EN 141) Avoid inhalation of vapors. In case of inadequate ventilation, use air-supplied full-mask.
Hygiene measures: Avoid contact with eyes. When using do not smoke. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Environmental exposure controls: No release to wastewater from process as such, wastewater emissions limited to release generated from final equipment cleaning step using water

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: polymerisation
Chemical Stability: Material is stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Avoid contact with: Peroxides. Catalytic metals. Polymerization catalysts.
Conditions to avoid: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Keep away from moisture.
