TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Foam. Carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 50°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 50°C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Sore throat. Cough. Shortness of breath.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN Redness.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES Causes watering of the eyes. Redness. Pain. 19109000
Safety goggles.
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION Cough. Sore throat. Abdominal cramps. Nausea.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Rest. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking liquid in covered containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place.
Fireproof. Separated from oxidants. Cool. Dry. Keep in the dark. Store only if stabilized. Store in an area without drain or sewer access.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
As a result of flow, agitation, etc., electrostatic charges can be generated.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance may polymerize due to heating, under the influence of moisture, oxidants or light with fire or explosion hazard.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: sensitization of skin (Sh); (DFG 2009).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.

INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20°C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
Lachrymation. The substance is irritating to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. If swallowed the substance may cause vomiting, and could result in aspiration pneumonitis. Medical observation is indicated. eport):corrosive to skin + presumably to eyes of rabbits; 13713000 0 and 13751000 added in update Lyon 2009 n inhalation study (1979) in rats with 19.7mg wich showed induction of lung oedema but peer review decision not to select Nov 2009

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