  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Above 65°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  NO open flames.  Above 65°C use a closed system and ventilation.  Use water spray, dry powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 AVOID ALL CONTACT! PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Burning sensation. Shortness of breath. Laboured breathing.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. Skin burns. Blisters.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower for at least 15 minutes. Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Blurred vision. Severe deep burns.  Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Ingestion Burns in mouth and throat. Abdominal pain. Vomiting. Shock or collapse.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer immediately for medical attention. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking liquid in covered containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
The substance may polymerize due to heating and under the influence of light, and peroxides. Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including acrolein. Reacts violently with strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidants and peroxides. This generates fire hazard. 

Formula: C6H10O3 / CH2=CHCOOCH2CH(CH3)OH
Molecular mass: 130.2
Boiling point: 191°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.1
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 25°C: 100 (good)
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20°C: 5
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.5
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.0
Flash point: 65°C
Explosive limits, vol% in air: 1.4-?
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.35  


EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body through the skin and by ingestion. Serious local effects by all routes of exposure. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is corrosive to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Corrosive on ingestion. Inhalation may cause lung oedema, but only after initial corrosive effects on eyes and/or airways have become manifest. If swallowed the substance may cause vomiting and could result in aspiration pneumonitis. See Notes. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. See Notes. 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 0.5 ppm as TWA; (skin); (SEN) 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment. 

NOTES
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Skin cross-sensitization with other acrylates is possible.
An added stabilizer or inhibitor can influence the toxicological properties of this substance; consult an expert.
The effectiveness of phenolic inhibitors is dependent on the presence of oxygen. Store under air rather than inert atmosphere.
See ICSC 1742.
