TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use powder, carbon dioxide, foam. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!   
Inhalation   Use ventilation.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
The substance polymerizes due to heating or in the presence of a catalyst, if not inhibited. On combustion, forms toxic gases. Reacts with strong oxidants, acids and bases. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster. 

Effects of short-term exposure
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.
