Although no appropriate human or animal health effects data are known to exist, this material is expected to cause severe eye irritation.
Symptoms of irritation may include severe pain or burning sensation, tearing, redness and swelling.
Although no appropriate human or animal health effects data are known to exist, this material is expected to be a health hazard by skin
Although no appropriate human or animal health effects data are known to exist, this material is expected to be a skin irritant. Symptoms may
include redness or rash, blistering and swelling of the affected area. Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause a more severe skin
response such as ulcers and deep scarring. Although no appropriate human or animal health effects data is known to exist, this material may
cause an allergic skin reaction (sensitization) in susceptible individuals upon repeated exposure.
Although no appropriate human or animal health effects data are known to exist, this material is expected to be a slight ingestion hazard.
SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
If overcome by exposure, remove victim to fresh air immediately. Give oxygen or artificial respiration as needed. Obtain emergency medical
attention. Prompt action is essential.
In case of eye contact, immediately rinse with clean water for 20-30 minutes. Retract eyelids often. Obtain emergency medical attention.
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap/water. Flush w/lukewarm water for 15 minutes. If sticky, use
waterless cleaner first. Seek medical attention if ill effect or irritation develops.
If large quantity swallowed, give lukewarm water (pint) if victim completely conscious/alert. Do not induce vomiting/risk of damage to lungs
exceeds poisoning risk. Obtain emergency medical attention.
EMERGENCY MEDICAL TREATMENT PROCEDURES
Continue to rinse eye with clean water for 20-30 minutes, retracting eyelids often. Contact ophthalmologist immediately. Treat burns or
allergic reactions conventionally after decontamination.
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURE
PRODUCTION OF COMBUSTION
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS
High temperatures, inhibitor depletion, accidental impurities, or exposure to radiation or oxidizers may cause spontaneous polymerizing
reaction generating heat/pressure. Closed containers may rupture or explode during runaway polymerization.
Fire-fighters should wear positive pressure self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and full turnout gear.
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Spilled or released material may polymerize and release heat/gases. Extinguish all ignition sources and ventilate area. Wear protective
equipment during clean-up. Dike and recover large spill. Soak up small spill with inert solids (such as vermiculite, clay) and sweep/shovel
into vented disposal container. Wash spill area with a strong detergent and water solution; rinse with water but minimize water use during
clean-up. For spills on water, contain, minimize dispersion and collect. Dispose/report per regulatory requirements.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Wear appropriate protective equipment when handling this material. Most acrylic monomers have low viscosities; hence, pouring, material
transfer and processing of these materials do not necessitate heating. Viscous monomers may require heating to facilitate handling. Do NOT
use localized heat sources such as band heaters to heat/melt product. Do not overheat--this may compromise product quality and/or result in
an uncontrolled hazardous polymerization. Product is packaged with inhibitor(s). Unless inhibited, product can polymerize, raising
temperature and pressure possibly rupturing container In addition, the product's inhibitor(s) require the presence of dissolved oxygen.
Maintain, at a minimum, the original headspace in the product container and do not blanket or mix with oxygen-free gas as it renders
inhibitor ineffective. Ensure air space (oxygen) is present during product heating/melting.
SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROL / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Eye protection, including both chemical splash goggles and face shield, must be worn when possibility exists for eye contact due to spraying
liquid or airborne particles. Contact lenses must not be worn.
When skin contact is possible, protective clothing including gloves, apron, sleeves, boots, head and face protection should be worn. This
equipment must be cleaned thoroughly after each use.
If handling results in aerosol or vapor generation, local exhaust ventilation is recommended.
OTHER HYGIENIC PRACTICES
Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.
OTHER WORK PRACTICES
Use good personal hygiene practices. Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or using toilet facilities. Promptly remove soiled
clothing/wash thoroughly before reuse. Shower after work using plenty of soap and water.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS
Acrid smoke-fumes/carbon monoxide/carbon dioxide and perhaps other toxic vapors may be released during a fire involving this product.
SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
No chronic health affects are known to exist for this mixture but no studies have been undertaken.
SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Spillage may penetrate soil causing ground water contamination. This product is not expected to bioaccumulate through food chains in the
SECTION 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Empty containers may contain harmful or flammable vapors. Do not cut, grind, drill weld, or dispose of containers unless adequate precautions
are taken against these hazards. Use registered transporters. Disposal options include landfilling solids at permitted sites; fuel blending
or incinerating liquids. Assure emissions comply with applicable regulations. Dilute aqueous waste may biodegrade; avoid
overloading/poisoning plant biomass. Assure effluent complies with applicable regulations.
