Ingestion
Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

5.3. Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. In case of fire cool endangered containers with water. Explosive mixtures may occur at temperatures at or above the flashpoint. Use only explosion-proof equipment.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
In the case of respirable dust and/or fumes, use self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8. Assure sufficient ventilation. Keep out unprotected persons. Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Use breathing appatus if exposed to vapors/dust/mist/aerosol. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:
No data available.

6.1.2 For emergency responders:
No data available

6.2. Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, drainage systems, stretches of water, soil. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
In case of larger quantities: Use mechanical handling equipment. Soak up small amounts with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8. For disposal considerations see section 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe vapors. All precautionary measures indicated have to be observed. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Normal measures for preventive fire protection. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. In case of fire cool endangered containers with water. Explosive mixtures may occur at temperatures at or above the flashpoint. Use only explosion-proof equipment. Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Observe prohibition against storing together! Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C.Protect from the action of light. 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.Can polymerize with intense heat release.

7.3. Specific end use(s)
We are unaware of any specific end uses which go beyond the data reported in Section 1.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters
Components or products of decomposition according to point 10, with limit values related to the place of work
which require monitoring

Occupational Exposure Limits
Chemical name Type Exposure Limit Values Source
Methyl methacrylate TWA 50 ppm 208 mg/m3 UK. EH40 Workplace Exposure Limits (WELs) (12 2011)
STEL 100 ppm 416 mg/m3 UK. EH40 Workplace Exposure Limits (WELs) (12 2011)
TWA 50 ppm EU. Indicative Exposure Limit Values in Directives 91/322/EEC, 2000/39/EC, 2006/15/EC, 2009/161/EU, 2017/164/EU (02 2017)

8.2. Exposure controls
Appropriate Engineering 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

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles

Hand Protection:
Material: butyl rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.7 mm)
Break-through time: 60 min
Guideline: EN 374
Additional Information: Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces., Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough., The suitability for a specific workplace should be discussed with the producers of the protective gloves., Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature)., The information is based on our own tests, on data from literature and information from protective glove producers or is based on data obtained from similar substances.

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

Respiratory Protection:
Breathing apparatus in case of high concentrations short term: filter appliance, filter A

Hygiene measures:
Private clothes and working clothes should be kept separately. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Follow the usual good standards of occupational hygiene. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. No eating, drinking, smoking, or snuffing tobacco at work. Cleanse and apply cream to skin after work.
Environmental Controls:
see section 6.

Disposal considerations

13.1. Waste treatment methods
General information:
Dispose of waste and residues in accordance with local authority requirements.

Disposal 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. Strictly controlled conditions during disposal or treatment to air, wastewater and waste. Do not add wastewater to a biological wastewater treatment plant Bring wastewater containing AOX for professional disposal. The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.

Contaminated Packaging:
Contaminated packaging should ideally be emptied; it can then be recycled after having been decontaminated. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for recycling. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of professionally.
