TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE

ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS

PREVENTION

FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING

FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, carbon dioxide, foam.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

 •INHALATION
Ventilation.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth.

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

STORAGE

PACKAGING & LABELLING

Ventilation. Collect leaking liquid in covered containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.
Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases, acids. Store only if stabilized. Store in an area without drain or sewer access.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance will polymerize due to heating or in the presence of a catalyst, if not inhibited. On combustion, forms toxic gases. Reacts with strong oxidants, acids and bases.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: IIb (not established but data is available) (DFG 2006).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 4.4 mg/l x 4 h; 656 (females)-891 (males) mg/kg

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis. 1.61 mm2/s (13 cP) at 20 C --> therefore lower viscosity at 40 C (Oct 2006).

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.

Flash point:
166°C c.c.
Auto-ignition temperature: 385°C
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.23

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised that this substance does not enter the environment.

N O T E S

An added stabilizer or inhibitor can influence the toxicological properties of this substance, consult an expert.
