Administrative data

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If respiratory distress symptoms
appear, seek medical attention. If not breathing, administer
artificial respiration.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with clean water for at least 15 minutes.
Retract eyelids. Seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Flush exposed area with large
amounts of water. If skin is damaged, or symptoms persist,
seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention. Do not induce vomiting or give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, water fog.

Product arising from burning: May form oxides of carbon and various hydrocarbons.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protection by suitable clothing and positive pressure
breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing and eliminate all ignition
sources. Absorb liquid material on vermiculite, floor
absorbent or other absorbent material and transfer to
suitable containers for disposal by incinerationl. Wash
down contaminated areas with plenty of water, using
containment to avoid washings reaching drains or surface
waters.

Handling and storage

Handling: Protective clothing, goggles or safety glasses and gloves
should be worn when working with the material. When using
the commercial preparation in styrene, also use
solvent-resistant (e.g. PVA) gloves and work only in
well-ventilated areas; respiratory protection will also be
required if the TLV workplace exposure limits for styrene
are approached or exceeded.

Storage: Store at ambient temperature, protected from moisture.
Commercial preparation in styrene should be stored only in
well-ventilated areas away from oxidising agents or ignition
sources (including static discharges).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Sealed, unbreakable containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Under fire conditions, rapid polymerisation within closed
containers may cause them to rupture violently.

Chemical reaction with water: None known.

Dust explosion: None expected. Even in solid/semi-solid form will not yield
mobile particles likely to create dust.

Dust explosion determined by test: N
