TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible.
NO open flames.
Water spray. Dry powder. Alcohol-resistant foam. Carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting.

In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat. Burning sensation. Laboured breathing.
Ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
First rinse with plenty of water, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again. Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •EYES Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.
Safety spectacles and eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •INGESTION Sore throat. Burning sensation. Weakness. Aspiration hazard!
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention.

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

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance will polymerize due to heating, on contact with peroxides, and under the influence of light. Heating may cause violent combustion or explosion producing acrid smoke. The substance may also spontaneously polymerize if it is not stabilized.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: sensitization of skin (Sh); (DFG 2008).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached very quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is severely irritating to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis.

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