First-aid measures

Inhalation - If adverse effects occur, remove to uncontaminated area. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. Get immediate medical attention.

Skin - Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes whilst removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention, if needed. Thoroughly clean and dry contaminated clothing and shoes before reuse.

Eyes - Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Then get immediate medical attention.

Ingestion - If swallowed, get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media - regular dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray, alcohol-resistant foam. Large fires: water spray or fog, alcohol-resistant foam

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media - high-pressure water streams

Special Hazards Arising from the Substance or Mixture - Severe fire hazard. Vapour/air mixtures are explosive above flash point. The vapour is heavier than air. Vapours or gases may ignite at distant ignition sources and flash back.

Thermal Decomposition Products - Thermal decomposition or combustion products: oxides of boron, oxides of carbon

Advice for Firefighters:

Fire Fighting Measures - Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Cool containers with water spray until well after the fire is out. Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety device or any discolouration of tanks due to fire. Stay away from the ends of tanks. For fires in cargo or storage area: Cool containers with water from unmanned hose holder or monitor nozzles until well after fire is out. If this is impossible then take the following precautions: Keep unnecessary people away, isolate hazard area and deny entry. Let the fire burn. For tank, rail car or tank truck, evacuation radius: 800 metres. Do not attempt to extinguish fire unless flow of material can be stopped first. Flood with fine water spray. Do not scatter spilled material with high-pressure water streams. Apply water from a protected location or from a safe distance. Avoid inhalation of material or combustion by-products. Stay upwind and keep out of low areas.

Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters - Wear full protective fire fighting gear including self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) for protection against possible exposure.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures - Wear personal protective clothing and equipment.

Environmental Precautions - Avoid release to the environment.

Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning up - Avoid heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Stop leak if possible without personal risk. Reduce vapours with water spray. Small spills: Absorb with sand or other non-combustible material. Collect spilled material in appropriate container for disposal. Large spills: Dike for later disposal. Remove sources of ignition. Keep unnecessary people away, isolate hazard area and deny entry.

Handling and storage

Precautions for Safe Handling:
Keep away from heat, sparks, open flame, and hot surfaces - No smoking. Keep container tightly closed. Earth/bond container and receiving equipment. Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Wear protective gloves and eye/face protection. Wash thoroughly after handling. Use only outdoors or in a wellventilated area.

Conditions for Safe Storage, Including any Incompatibilities:
Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in well-ventilated place. Store in a tightly closed container. Store under an inert atmosphere. Store locked up. Avoid contact with water or moisture. Earthing and bonding required. Keep separated from incompatible substances.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate Engineering Controls - Ventilation equipment should be explosion-resistant if explosive concentrations of material are present. Provide local exhaust ventilation system. Ensure compliance with applicable exposure limits.

Eye / Face Protection - Wear splash resistant safety goggles with a face-shield. Provide an emergency eye wash fountain and quick drench shower in the immediate work area.

Skin Protection - Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing.

Glove Recommendations - Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves.

Protective Materials - neoprene, rubber

Respiratory Protection - Respirators depend on exposure level. SCBA with full face piece recommended during change outs and available in case of emergency.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity - May decompose on contact with water or moist air.

Chemical Stability - May decompose on contact with water or moist air.

Possibility of Hazardous Reactions - Will not polymerise.

Conditions to Avoid - Avoid heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. Containers may rupture or explode if exposed to heat. Keep out of water supplies and drains. Avoid contact with water or moisture.

Incompatible Materials - acids, bases, oxidising materials

Hazardous Decomposition Products: Thermal Decomposition Products - Thermal decomposition or combustion products: oxides of boron, oxides of carbon

Disposal considerations

Waste Treatment Methods - Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations.
