First-aid measures

General advice: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.

Inhalation: Inhalation of vapours/mists : Move patient from contaminated area to fresh air. In case of persistent problems, consult a physician.
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.
Eye contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. Seek advice of an ophthalmologist if necessary.
Ingestion: In case of problems : Consult a doctor.

Protection of first-aiders: If entering a saturated atmosphere, wear a self contained breathing apparatus. Protective suit.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry powder, Foam, Water spray, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Specific hazards: Polymerization is exothermic and can degenerate into an uncontrolled reaction.
Specific methods: Remove all sources of ignition. Suppress gases, fumes and/or dust with water spray jet. Cool containers / tanks with water spray.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Remove all sources of ignition. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours.
Use personal protective equipment. Do not smoke.

Environmental precautions:
Do not release into the environment. Prevent product from entering drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material. Rinse with water. Recover waste water for processing later

Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Liquid. Flammable (when hot). Irritant. With irritating vapours. Sensitizing.
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Do not use activated carbons to capture odours of acrylates. Provide showers, eyebaths.

Safe handling advice: Transfer by pump or atmospheric pressure containing between 5 and 21% of oxygen Never bring into contact with an atmosphere made of lifeless gas only. Keep well away from naked flames. Only use safety equipment.

Hygiene measures: Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. 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 container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not smoke. Maintain in contact with an atmosphere containing between 5 and 21% of oxygen. Never use a system in contact with inert atmospheres for storage. Protect against light. Avoid long storage period. Provide electrical earthing of equipment and electrical equipment usable in explosive atmospheres. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Inhibitor levels should be maintained. Monitor the product clarity. Continuously monitor product temperature. Do not store above: 30 °C

Incompatible products: Free radical generators, Peroxides, Strong oxidizing agents, Strong acids, strong bases, Activated carbons (explosive reaction)

Packaging material:
Recommended: Stainless steel, Ordinary steel, Aluminium, High density polyethylene (HDPE), Polypropylene, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)
To be avoided: Rubber

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity & Stability:
Presence of a polymerization inhibitor: p-Methoxyphenol (Hydroquinone monomethyl Ether) or hydroquinone
The product is stable if inhibitor concentration is maintained at : 15 mg/kg.
Control free oxygen level : free oxygen is essential to stabilize the product.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Polymerization is exothermic and can degenerate into an uncontrolled reaction.

Conditions to avoid:
Temperature > 30 °C
Protect from light.

Incompatible materials to avoid: Free radical generators, Peroxides, Strong oxidizing agents, Strong acids and strong bases, Activated carbons (explosive reaction)

Hazardous decomposition products: At high temperature (by combustion) : carbon oxides

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment:
Disposal of product: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).
Disposal of packaging: Destroy packaging by incineration at an approved waste disposal site. In accordance with local and national regulations.
