This essay has been submitted by a student. This is not an example of the work written by our professional essay writers.

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.

SKIN ABSORPTION

Although no appropriate human or animal health effects data are known to exist, this material is expected to be a health hazard by skin

absorption.

SKIN IRRITATION

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.

INGESTION

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

INHALATION

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.

EYE CONTACT

In case of eye contact, immediately rinse with clean water for 20-30 minutes. Retract eyelids often. Obtain emergency medical attention.

SKIN CONTACT

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.

INGESTION

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

FLAMMABLE

FLASH POINT

84°C

PRODUCTION OF COMBUSTION

Carbon Oxides

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.

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

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

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.

SKIN PROTECTION

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.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

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.

SECTION 9 - PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

PEL or TLV has not been established.

Aromatic Liquid

Colour: Yellow or green

Boiling Point: Unknown

Melting Point: Unknown

Specific Gravity: Unknown

Vapor Pressure: Unknown

Vapor Density: Unknown

Solubility: Not soluble in water

Viscosity: Unknown

SECTION 10 - STABILITY AND REACTIVITY

CONDITIONS AND MATERIALS TO AVOID

High temperatures, localized heat sources (ie, drum or band heaters), oxidizing conditions, freezing conditions, direct sunlight, ultraviolet

radiation, inert gas blanketing; Strong oxidizers, strong reducers, free radical initiators, inert gases, oxygen scavengers

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

environment.

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.

SECTION 14 - TRANSPORT INFORMATION

DOT CLASSIFICATION: NA

TDG CLASSIFICATION: NA

IMDG CLASSIFICATION: NA

IATA CLASSIFICATION: NA

UN NUMBER: NA

SECTION 15 - REGULATORY INFORMATION

This product is not regulated under section 302 of SARA and 40 CFR Part 355

SECTION 16 - OTHER INFORMATION

Suspect severe eye irritation hazard

Suspect skin irritation/sensitization hazard

Suspect respiratory tract irritation hazard

Suspect skin absorption hazard

Suspect slight ingestion hazard
