Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Face shield.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give plenty of water to drink.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

N O T E S
Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated. Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. An added stabilizer or inhibitor can influence the toxicological properties of this substance, consult an expert. Ageflex EGDM, Nourycryl M221, Sartomer SR 206 are trade names. Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification.
