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 water spray, powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Above 68°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  Above 68°C use a closed system and ventilation.   
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!   
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin Skin burns. Pain.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Severe deep burns.  Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Abdominal pain. Diarrhoea. Nausea. Vomiting. Burning sensation. Shock or collapse.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
The substance may polymerize under the influence of heat, light, oxidants, reducing agents and metals. This generates fire or explosion hazard. Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides. Attacks some forms of rubber. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
 

Inhalation risk
