First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures

General advice
First aider needs to protect himself. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours.

Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of complaints get medical advice.

Skin contact
If skin irritation occurs consult a physician. Wash off with water and soap.

Eye contact
Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.

Call a physician immediately.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Central nervous system effects., sensitising effects, carcinogenic effects

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
water spray, foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
High volume water jet

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Products or compounds possibly released in case of fire: Carbon oxides nitric oxides Formaldehyde organic products of decomposition

5.3. Advice for firefighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Cool down container with a water jet from a safe distance. Keep out unprotected persons.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep out unprotected persons. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Do not breathe dust/ fume/ gas/ mist/ vapours/ spray. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Larger quantities: Remove mechanically (by pumping). Use explosion-proof equipment! Smaller quantities and/or residues: Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose of in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Safe handling advice
Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
No special measures are required.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability. Protect from the action of light. Can polymerize with intense heat release. Protect from frost.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters
see section 8.2.

8.2. Exposure controls
For monitoring procedures refer for instance to "Empfohlene Analysenverfahren für Arbeitsplatzmessungen", Schriftenreihe der Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz and "NIOSH Manual of Analytical Methods", National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

Protective measures
Do not breathe vapours. Absolutely avoid contact with the eyes and/or skin. All precautionary measures indicated have to be observed.

Hygiene measures
Store work clothing separately. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Follow the usual good standards of occupational hygiene. Clean skin thoroughly after work; apply skin cream.

Respiratory protection
Breathing apparatus in case of high concentrations

Hand protection
butyl rubber gloves (0.3 mm), Break through time ca. 480 min (EN 374)
In practice, due to variable exposure conditions, this information can only be an aid to orientation for the selection of a suitable chemical protection glove. In particular, this information does not substitute suitability tests by the end user.

General information
Gloves should be replaced regularly, especially after extended contact with the product. For each work-place a suitable glove type has to be selected.

Eye protection
tightly fitting goggles

Skin and body protection
On handling of larger quantities: face mask, chemical-resistant boots and apron Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.

Stability and reactivity

10.1. Reactivity
see section 10.2.

10.2. Chemical stability
No decomposition if used as directed.

10.3. Possibility of hazardous reactions
Polymerization with heat evolution may occur in the presence of radical forming substances (e.g. peroxides), reducing substances, and/or heavy metal ions.

10.4. Conditions to avoid
Protect from frost, heat and sunlight.The product is normally supplied in a stabilized form. If the permissible storage period and/or storage temperature is exceeded, the product may polymerize with heat evolution.

10.5. Incompatible materials
Peroxides, amines, sulfur compounds, heavy metal ions, alkalis, reducing agents and oxidizing agents.
Free radical initiators. Mineral acids.

10.6. Hazardous decomposition products
On drying formaldehyde will be liberated.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Waste is hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after
consultation of the competent local authorities and the disposal company in a
suitable and licensed facility.

Uncleaned packaging
Contaminated packaging should be emptied optimally and after appropriate
professional cleansing may be taken for reuse. Packaging that cannot be cleaned
should be disposed of professionally. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for
