First-aid measures

General Information
Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely | Pay attention to own protection | In any case show the physician the Safety Data Sheet |
Inhalation : Keep at rest | Move to fresh air | Call a physician immediately |
Skin : Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes | If symptoms persist, call a physician |
Eyes : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes | Call a physician immediately |
Ingestion : Rinse with plenty of water | If conscious, drink plenty of water | If swallowed, do not induce vomiting - seek medical advice
Notes to physician | Main symptoms : Vapours may cause irritation to the eyes, respiratory system and the skin | Gastrointestinal discomfort | Special hazard: respiratory disorder | Treatment: Treat symptomatically | In case of lung irritation first treatment with dexametason aerosol (spray) | In case of choking: adminsitration of activated charcoal and a saline laxative agent. | In the case of absorption of large volumes, use gastroscopy with suction cleaning |

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: foam | Dry chemical | carbon dioxide (CO2) | Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire | Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases: Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of | carbon monoxide | carbon dioxide (CO2) | Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons | Vapors are heavier than air and may spread along floors | Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133) | Environmental precautions: Water runoff can cause environmental damage | Dike and collect water used to fight fire | Other Information: Cool containers / tanks with water spray |

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes | Keep away from heat and sources of ignition | Provide adequate ventilation |
Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage | Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater | Material creates a special hazard because it floats on water. | Caution: Spontaneous polymerization can occur if material is released or mixed with incompatibles. | Methods for cleaning Up: Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust) | Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal | Dispose of in accordance with local regulations |

Handling and storage

Handling:
Advice on safe handling: Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms | Protection - fire and explosion: : Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking | Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge | Ground and bond containers when transferring material | In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available | |par Blanketing vinyl acetate under an inert atmosphere eliminates flammable vapor in the head space and contamination with atmospheric moisture. | Bulk storage of vinyl acetate at ambient temperatures is an acceptable practice when there is a routine turnover of the tank contents every 60 days or less. Inhibitor levels should be monitored if a stability problem is suspected. | Temperature class: T2 |
Storage
Technical measures/Storage conditions: Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place | Handle and open container with care | Store at temperatures not exceeding 30&86 °C/ °F | Incompatible products: oxidizing agents | radical initiators | strong acids | amines | German storage class: 3A: Flammable liquids

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Engineering measures: General or dilution ventilation is frequently insufficient as the sole means of controlling employee exposure. Local ventilation is usually preferred | Explosion-proof equipment (for example fans, switches, and grounded ducts) should be used in mechanical ventilation systems
General advice : Avoid contact with skin and eyes | Do not breathe vapors or spray mist | Use only in an area equipped with a safety shower | Hold eye wash fountain available | Hygiene measures: When using, do not eat, drink or smoke | Take off all contaminated clothing immediately | Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product | Respiratory protection: respirator with A/PA filter | Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles | In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to the face | Equipment should conform to EN 166 | skin protection: impervious clothing | Hand protection: Chemicals resistant gloves | Type : Butoject (Company KCL) or comparable article; or refer to glove manufacturer's recommendation | Evaluation : according to EN 374: level 4 | Material thickness : approx 0.3 mm | Break through time: approx 120 min | Suitable material: butyl-rubber

Stability and reactivity

Stability
Stable under normal conditions of handling, use and transportation. | Conditions to avoid: Avoid any source of ignition. | Avoid contact with heat, sparks, open flame, and static discharge. | Avoid temperatures above 30 °C / 86 °F | Materials to avoid : Keep away from: oxidizing agents, radical initiators, strong acids, amines | Thermal decomposition : No decomposition if used as directed | If heated to thermal decomposition the following decomposition products may occur depending on the conditions | carbon oxides | Hazardous reactions: Polymerization can occur | May polymerize violently or explosively if contaminated or overheated. | Uncontrolled polymerization can cause rapid evolution of heat and increased pressure which can result in violent rupture of storage vessels or containers. | Hazardous decomposition products : - |

Disposal considerations

Product information: Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local statutes and possibilities for disposal. | Uncleaned empty packaging: Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for reuse.
