Component CAS # ENIECS REACH Reg. No. Amount
Methacrylic Acid 79-41-4 201-204-4 20 - 30%
Methyl Methacrylate 80-62-6 201-297-1 50 - 70%

Section 4 - First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while lifting the eye lids. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention. Contact physician if irritation persists.
Skin Contact: Remove affected person from source of contamination. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water for several minutes. Contact physician if irritation persists.
Inhalation: Move the exposed person to fresh air at once. When breathing is difficult, properly trained personnel may assist affected person by administering oxygen. Contact physician if discomfort continues.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Drink plenty of water. Get medical attention.

Section 5 - Firefighting Measures

Extinguishing Media: Extinguish with foam, carbon dioxide or dry powder.
Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep up-wind to avoid fumes. Avoid water in straight hose stream; will scatter and spread fire. Cool containers exposed to flames with water until well after the fire is out. Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources. Dike for water control. Protective equipment for fire-figthers Self contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

Steps to be Taken if Material is Released or Spilled:
Personal Precautions: Highly flammable Warn everybody of potential hazards and evacuate if necessary. Remove sources of ignition. Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of spray mist and contact with skin and eyes. Wear protective clothing as described in Section 8 of this safety data sheet.
Environmental Precautions: Do not allow to enter drains, sewers or watercourses. Spillages or uncontrolled discharges into watercourses must be IMMEDIATELY alerted to the Environmental Agency or other appropriate regulatory body.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage

General Handling: Provide adequate ventilation, including appropriate local extraction, to ensure that the defined occupational exposure limit is not exceeded. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Storage tanks and other containers must be grounded. Do not smoke, use open fire or other sources of ignition. Observe good chemical hygiene practices.
Other Precautions:
Storage: Store in tightly closed original container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Section 8 - Precautions to Control Exposure / Personal Protection


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

Eye/Face Protection: Wear approved chemical safety goggles where eye exposure is reasonably probable.
Skin Protection: Use protective gloves made of Rubber or plastic. Wear apron or protective clothing in case of contact.
Respiratory Protection: If ventilation is insufficient, suitable respiratory protection must be provided. Chemical respirator with organic vapour cartridge.
Hygenic Measures: Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Good personal hygiene is necessary. Wash hands and contaminated areas with water and soap before leaving the work site. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using the product. Change work clothing daily before leaving work place.
Engineering Controls: Provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation.
