Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Suitable protective clothing and self-contained resp protective apparatus should be available for use of those who may have to rescue persons overcome by fumes.
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Build dikes to contain flow as necessary.
Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products Incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides Flammable gaseous hydrogen is generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Solid streams of water may be ineffective. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources.
Paresthesia have been reported. Headache, irritability, drowsiness and dizziness may occur. There is no evidence of methyl methacrylate-induced teratogenicity in humans but there are conflicting reports in animals.
Anorexia and nausea has been reported from inhalational exposure. Stomatitis has resulted from contact. Administration to rats by lavage failed to produce gastric lesions.
Respiratory depression, pulmonary edema, emphysema, and atelectasis have occurred in animals following large doses.
Allergic contact dermatitis has been reported. Eczematous reactions of onychial and paronychial tissues have been reported in patients using acrylic plastic nails. Dystrophic nail changes may persist for months. Irreversible loss of the fingernails has occurred.
Significant systemic toxicity is not expected after acute ingestion; gastrointestinal decontamination is generally not warranted.
If symptoms develop, move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. Keep person warm and quiet; seek immediate medical attention.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
