3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Emergency Overview
Colorless liquid with fruity odor

WARNING!
FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND VAPOR.
CAUSES EYE AND SKIN IRRITATION.
MAY CAUSE RESPIRATORY TRACT IRRITATION.
MAY CAUSE ALLERGIC SKIN REACTION.


Potential Health Effects

Inhalation and skin contact are expected to be the primary routes of occupational exposure to this material. Based on
single exposure animal tests, it is considered to be slightly toxic to practically non-toxic if swallowed, slightly toxic if
absorbed through skin, practically non-toxic if inhaled, moderately irritating to eyes and severely irritating to skin.
Exposure to vapor may be moderately to severely irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Repeated exposure
may cause an allergic skin reaction.

4 FIRST AID MEASURES

IF IN EYES, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.

IF ON SKIN, immediately flush with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical
attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.

IF SWALLOWED, do NOT induce vomiting. Give water to drink. Get medical attention immediately. NEVER
GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON.

IF INHALED, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give
oxygen. Get medical attention.

Extinguishing Media
Use water spray, carbon dioxide, foam or dry chemical.

Fire Fighting Instructions
Fight fire from a protected location - EXPLOSION HAZARD. Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to
products of combustion should wear full fire fighting turn out gear (full Bunker Gear) and self-contained breathing
apparatus (pressure demand NIOSH approved or equivalent). Fire fighting equipment should be thoroughly
decontaminated after use.

Fire and Explosion Hazards
When burned, the following hazardous products of combustion can occur:
Oxides of carbon

A large amount of heat can be generated when monomers are exposed to a fire. Heated sealed containers can
explode.


6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

In Case of Spill or Leak
Extinguish or turn off all ignition sources. Ventilate the space involved. Wear appropriate personal protection
equipment as indicated in Section 8 of this MSDS. Contain spill with inert materials. Construct a dike to
prevent spreading. Collect with non-sparking tools to a suitable container. Prevent waterway contamination.
Absorb liquid onto inert absorbent and place in DOT approved drums for disposal. Consult a regulatory
specialist to determine appropriate state or local reporting requirements, for assistance in waste
characterization and/or hazardous waste disposal and other requirements listed in pertinent environmental
permits.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling
Keep away from heat, sparks and flames.
Keep container closed.
Use only with adequate ventilation.
Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.
Avoid breathing vapor.
Wash thoroughly after handling.

CONTAINER HAZARDOUS WHEN EMPTY. Emptied container retains vapor and product residue. Follow
labeled warnings even after container is emptied. RESIDUAL VAPORS MAY EXPLODE ON IGNITION. DO
NOT CUT, DRILL GRIND OR WELD ON OR NEAR THIS CONTAINER. Improper disposal or reuse of this
container may be dangerous and/or illegal.

Storage
This product should be stored in a closed container, away from direct sunlight, at ambient temperatures.
Storage of this product at elevated temperatures (>30 C or >85 F) reduces the shelf-life. The typical shelf-life
for this product is 12 months. An air space is required above the liquid in all containers; avoid storage under
an oxygen-free atmosphere.

The stability of this product should be checked periodically; typically every 90 days for bulk containers.
Materials recommended for packaging include: stainless steel, aluminum, glass, HDPE, PP or PTFE.


8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

Engineering Controls
Investigate engineering techniques to reduce exposures below airborne exposure limits. Provide ventilation
if necessary to control exposure levels below airborne exposure limits (see below). If practical, use local
mechanical exhaust ventilation at sources of air contamination such as open process equipment. Consult
ACGIH ventilation manual or NFPA Standard 91 for design of exhaust systems.

Eye / Face Protection
Where there is potential for eye contact, wear chemical goggles and have eye flushing equipment available.

Skin Protection
Wear appropriate chemical resistant protective clothing and chemical resistant gloves to prevent skin
contact. Consult glove manufacturer to determine appropriate type glove material for given application.
Wear chemical goggles, a face shield, and chemical resistant clothing such as a rubber apron when
splashing may occur. Rinse immediately if skin is contaminated. Remove contaminated clothing promptly
and wash before reuse. Clean protective equipment before reuse. Provide a safety shower at any location
where skin contact can occur. Wash skin thoroughly after handling.

Respiratory Protection
Avoid breathing vapor or mist. When airborne exposure limits are exceeded (see below), use NIOSH
approved respiratory protection equipment appropriate to the material and/or its components. Consult
respirator manufacturer to determine appropriate type equipment for given application. Observe respirator
use limitations specified by NIOSH or the manufacturer. For emergency and other conditions where
exposure limit may be significantly exceeded, use an approved full face positive-pressure, self-contained
breathing apparatus or positive-pressure airline with auxiliary self-contained air supply. Respiratory
protection programs must comply with 29 CFR 搂 1910.134.

11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicological Information
Data on this material and/or its components are summarized below.

Single exposure (acute) studies indicate:
Oral - Slightly Toxic to Practically Non-toxic to Rats (LD50 3,700-9,100 mg/kg)
Dermal - Slightly Toxic to Rabbits (LD50 1,800-3,400 mg/kg)
Inhalation - Practically Non-toxic to Rats (4-hr LC50 10.2-14.0 mg/l; 1-hr LC50 22.9 mg/l)
Eye Irritation - Moderately Irritating to Rabbits
Skin Irritation - Severely Irritating to Rabbits

Skin allergy was observed in guinea pigs following repeated exposure. Following repeated inhalation, eye and
nose irritation, increased liver weights and respiratory tract damage (only at levels producing death in most
animals) were reported in rats. Following repeated exposure in their drinking water, rats exhibited decreased
weight gain and water consumption. Repeated oral administration (gavage) produced a slight increase in liver
weight in rats. Long-term inhalation by rats produced nasal mucosa changes and changes in relative heart and
liver weights with partially reversible eye (cornea) changes. No tumors were observed in this study. No skin
tumors were observed in mice following life time skin application. No birth defects were observed in the
offspring of rats exposed during pregnancy at levels which produced adverse effects on the mothers, including
reduced weight gain, eye and nasal irritation, and embryolethality. Birth defects and embryolethality were
observed in mice exposed orally during pregnancy at doses producing adverse effects, including death, in the
mothers. Generally, no genetic changes were observed in tests using bacteria, animal cells or animals. On
positive response has been reported in a test using animals.


12 ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Ecotoxicological Information
Data on this material and/or its components are summarized below.

This material is moderately toxic to algae (96-hr LC50 5.5 mg/l), Daphnia magna (48-hr EC50 8.2 mg/l),
sheepshead minnow (96-hr LC50 2.1 mg/l) and rainbow trout (96-hr LC50 5.2 mg/l).
Chemical Fate Information
Data on this material and/or its components are summarized below.

This material is readily biodegradable (BOD5/COD = 0.6; 14-day BOD 61%; 28-day BOD 57.8%) and slightly
bioaccumulable (log Pow = 2.4). It is slowly hydrolyzed in water and the half-life is effected by the pH (4-hours
at pH 11; 2800-days at pH 7; 1100 days at pH 3).

13 DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Waste Disposal
Incineration is the recommended method for disposal observing all local, state and federal regulations. Note:
Chemical additions to, processing of, or otherwise altering this material may make this waste management
information incomplete, inaccurate, or otherwise inappropriate. Furthermore, state and local waste disposal
requirements may be more restrictive or otherwise different from federal laws and regulations.
