First-aid measures

Eye Contact - rinse continuously with water for at least 10 minutes
Skin Contact - shower immediately and removed contaminated clothing
Inhalation - Fresh air and rest
Ingestion - Rinse mouth with water and give small amounts of water to drink. Never give an unconscious patient water to drink. Do not induce
vomitting. Seek immediate medical attention

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media - carbon dioxide, foam, powder and water fog/spray
Special fire fighting procedure - Material decomposes at high temperatures, giving off acrid fumes: therefore breathing apparatus should be worn

Accidental release measures

Recover material if possible. Also absorb spilled substance in sand or inert substance and remove to a safe place. Prevent material entering drains with absorbent socks and drain protectors. After absorption and recovery, wash away traces with large amounts of water. Any absorbent material used to mop up a spill to be disposed of in a closed metal container.

Protective equipment to be worn for spill - Chemical splash resistant overalls, wellingtons, chemical resistant PVC gauntlets and
visor

Handling and storage

Use in well ventilated areas. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Open and handle containers with care. Store in original containers. Avoid excessive breathing of vapours. Avoid accumulation of static charge, especially in high mixing systems. Emergency shower and eyewash should be close by. Electrical equipment to be suitable for electrical apparatus group and temperature class of the material (Group IIB Class T3)

Store away from oxidising agents. This product may attack concrete surfaces, particularly in the presence of water. Storage tank to have flametrap and to be bunded to contain 110% of tank content or as local regulations

Exposure controls / personal protection

Ventilation - no special ventilation unless used in spray form. If a spray form is used, suitable ventilation is required. However engineering controls should be aimed for to prevent the need for ventilation.

Protective equipment for normal operation

Breathing - no protection required
Gloves - protective gloves/gauntlets made of PVC
Eye - wear close fitting goggles or visor when handling, e.g. sampling
Other - wear normal industrial workwear to prevent skin contact

Stability and reactivity

Stability to heat - Stable up to boiling point
Reactivity - reacts with strong oxidising agents
Reaction with water - very slow hydrolysis to acetic acid and hexanol can occur
Polymerisation hazard - none

Disposal considerations

Waste product - recycle if possible, but if not, then incinerate

Packaging - Steel drums can be cleaned and re-used if in good condition, or recycle as scrap metal. IBCs can be either cleaned out, shred and landfill, if permitted or clean, granulate and recycle the plastic granules. The IBC cage can be re-used
