Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

First-aid measures

General advice:

Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.


Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Skin contact:

Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. In the case of skin irritation or allergic reactions see a physician.

Eye contact:

Wash open eyes immediately, abundantly and thoroughly for at least 15 minutes. Seek advice of an ophthalmologist if necessary.


Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Consult a physician if necessary.

Protection of first-aiders:

Protective suit. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), foam, Dry chemical

Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Formation of toxic products through combustion:, Carbon oxides

Advice for firefighters:

Specific methods:

In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Use personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Remove all sources of ignition. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist.

Environmental precautions:

Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Do not release into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Methods for cleaning up:

After cleaning, flush away traces with water. Recover waste water for processing later.


Shovel into suitable container for disposal. Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material (sand, vermiculite, perlite). Use clean nonsparking tools to collect absorbed material.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Technical measures/Precautions:

Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Liquid. Sensitizing. Dangerous for the environment. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths

Safe handling advice:

Remove all sources of ignition. Avoid static electricity build up with connection to earth. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable

respiratory equipment.Most acrylic monomers have low viscosities; hence, pouring, material transfer and processing of these materials do not necessitate heating. DO NOT use localized heat sources such as band heaters or steam. Use hot boxes or hot rooms for heating or melting.

Do not overheat - this may compromise product quality and/or result in an uncontrolled hazardous polymerization.

Hygiene measures:

Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store in original container. Protect from frost, heat and sunlight. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Make sure of the presence of air and inhibitor in the drums. In addition, the product's inhibitor(s) require the presence of dissolved oxygen. An air space is required above the liquid in all containers; avoid storage under an oxygen-free atmosphere. Provide impermeable floor. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area.

Storage period: 6 Months, Storage temperature: < 45 °C

Incompatible products:

Acids Bases Oxidizing agents Reducing agents

Packaging material:

Recommended: Baked phenolic lined carbon steel drums, Plastic drum

To be avoided: copper, Iron

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: When working in confined spaces (tanks, containers, etc.), ensure that there is a supply of air

suitable for breathing and wear the recommended equipment.

Personal protective equipment:

Respiratory protection: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Hand protection: Gloves nitrile rubber

Products used with solvents

Do not use:, Natural Rubber, Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication

of degradation or chemical breakthrough.

Eye/face protection: Safety glasses with side-shields, Do not wear contact lenses.

Skin and body protection: Long sleeved clothing

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability:

The product is stable under recommended handling and storage conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:

Inhibitors have been added to stabilize this product. Maintaining air in the storage containers is important to keep inhibitors active. Unless inhibited, hazardous polymerisation may occur. Polymerization is exothermic and can degenerate into an uncontrolled reaction.

Conditions to avoid:

Heat, flames and sparks. Remove all sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Incompatible materials to avoid:

Acids, Bases, Oxidizing agents, Reducing agents

Hazardous decomposition products:

Formation of toxic products through combustion:, Carbon oxides

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment:

Disposal of product: Do not release into the environment. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Disposal of packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
