First-aid measures

Descriptions of first aid measures


    In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention.



    Remove to fresh air.  If not breathing, give artificial respiration.  Oxygen may additionally be given, by trained personnel, if it is available.  Get medical attention if symptoms occur.



    Flush skin with plenty of water.  Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.  Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.  Wash clothing before reuse.  Thoroughly clean or destroy contaminated shoes.



    Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water.  If easy to do, contact lenses should be removed during the flushing, by trained personnel.  Occasionally hold the eyelids apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing the entire surface of the eye and lids with water.  Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.



    Call a physician or a poison control center immediately.  Induce vomiting only if directed by medical personnel.  The patient should lie on their left side while vomiting to reduce the risk of aspiration.  Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.


Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

There are no data available that address medical conditions that are generally recognized as being aggravated by exposure to this material.

Attending physician should treat exposed patients symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Waterspray, foam, sand, dry chemical powder, CO2.

Unsuitable extinguishing media


Hazardous decomposition / combustion products

CO2, carbon monoxide.

2-ethylhexanoic acid, heptane, 2,5-dihydroxy-2,5-dimethylhexane, acetone, isopentanol.

Protective equipment

Firefighters must wear fire resistant protective equipment.  Wear approved respirator and protective gloves.

Other information

Evacuate all non-essential personnel.  Extinguish a small fire with powder or carbon dioxide then apply water to prevent re-ignition.  Cool closed containers with water.  Water used to extinguish fire should not be allowed to enter the drainage system or water courses.  After a fire, ventilate thoroughly the area and soak with water, clean the walls and metallic surfaces.

Fire and explosion hazard

CAUTION: reignition may occur.  Decomposition under effect of heating (See also Section Hazardous decomposition products).  If involved in a fire, it will support combustion.  Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.  In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Do not breathe fumes/vapour.  For personal protection see Section Exposure controls / personal protection

Environmental precautions

Do not allow to enter drains or water courses.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Stop leakage if possible.  Eliminate all sources of ignition, and do not generate flames or sparks.  Transfer remaining product from leaking container to a clean and suitable container.  Cover the remainder with inert absorbent (e.g. vermiculite) for disposal.  Keep contents moist.  The waste should NOT be confined.  Flush surroundings with large amounts of water and soap.

Other information

CAUTION:  reignition may occur.  Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.  Vapours may travel to a source of ignition and flash back.  Evacuate personnel to safe area.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Never weigh out in the storage room.  When using do not eat, drink or smoke.  Do not pipet by mouth.  Do not breathe fumes/vapour.  Handle in well ventilated areas.  Eliminate all sources of ignition, and do not generate flames or sparks.  Keep away from reducing agents (e.g. amines), acids, alkalies and heavy metal compounds (e.g. accelerators, driers, metal soaps).  Keep product and emptied container away from heat and sources of ignition.  Confinement must be avoided.  Avoid incompatible materials (see Section Stability and reactivity).

Fire and explosion prevention

Use explosion protected equipment.  Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.  Use non-sparking tools in areas where explosive vapor air mixtures may occur.  Do not cut or weld on or near this container even when empty.

Conditions for safe storage

Store in accordance with local/national regulations.  Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.  Store in a dry well ventilated place away from sources of heat and direct sunlight.  Store separate from other chemicals.  Keep only in the original container.  Keep container upright to prevent leakage.


Avoid temperatures below -20 oC.  If product freezes or separates, contact AkzoNobel.

For maximum quality store below: 15 oC.

For safety, store below 20 oC.

Other information

It is recommended to use electrical equipment of temperature group T3.  However, autoignition can never be excluded.  Wash hands thoroughly after handling or contact.  Keep working clothing separately and do not take them home.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Ensure good ventilation and local exhaustion of the working area.  Explosion proof ventilation recommended.

Personal protection


    The usual precautionary measures for handling chemicals should be observed.



    Wear suitable protective gloves of neoprene or synthetic rubber.



    Wear eye/face protection.


    Skin and body

    Wear suitable protective clothing.


    Other information

    Emergency-shower and facilities for rinsing eyes must be accessible.  Launder clothes before reuse.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability

SADT - (self accelerating decomposition temperature) is the lowest temperature at which self accelerating decomposition may occur with a substance in the packaging as used in transport.

A dangerous self-accelerating decomposition reaction and, under certain circumstances, explosion or fire can be caused by thermal decomposition at and above the following temperature: 35 oC.  Contact with incompatible substances can cause decomposition at or below the SADT 35 oC

Conditions to avoid

Under no circumstances should this product be exposed to temperatures above the emergency temperature of 25 oC.  If the product temperature exceeds 25 oC all available means shall be used to bring the temperature under control and the emergency procedures shall be started.  Emergency procedures will vary depending on conditions.  Contact AkzoNobel for assistance with developing an emergency response plan.

Avoid temperatures below  -20 oC.

To maintain quality store in original closed container below: 15 oC.

Confinement must be avoided.

Incompatible materials

Avoid contact with rust, iron and copper.  Contact with incompatible materials such as acids, alkalies, heavy metals and reducing agents will result in hazardous decomposition.  Do not mix with peroxide accelerators.  Use only Stainless steel 316, PP, polyethylene or glass-lined equipment.  Contact AkzoNobel for more information.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Polymerization does not occur.

Hazardous decomposition products

Hazardous decomposition products: 2-ethylhexanoic acid, heptane, 2,5-dihydroxy-2,5-dimethylhexane, acetone, isopentanol.

Other information

Emergency procedures will vary depending upon conditions.  The customer must have an emergency response plan in place.  Contact AkzoNobel for assistance with developing an emergency response plan.

Disposal considerations


Due to the high risk of contamination recycling/recovery is not recommended.  Waste disposal in accordance with regulations (most probably controlled incineration).

Contaminated packaging

According to local regulations.  Emptied containers might retain product residues.  Follow all warnings even after the container is emptied.
