Hazards and Protection.
Storage
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.
Handling
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.
Protection
Protection required for safe handling of acrylic acid and esters commonly includes use of impervious gloves, shoe soles, and clothing; splash-proof goggles acrylic acid & derivatives.
Respirators
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Small spills/leaks
Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not appl
Stability
No data.
Incompatibilities
Reacts exothermically with acids to give n-decyl alcohol and acrylic acid May react vigorous with strong oxidizing acids and generate enough heat to ignite the reaction products Interaction with caustic solutions also generates heat Incompatible with alkali metals and hydrides.

Fire.
Fire fighting
Fire Extinguishing Agents: Small fires: dry chemical, CO 2 , water spray or foam; large fires: water spray, fog or foam.
Hazards
May contain acrid smoke and fumes including toxic acrylic acid, one of the most serious eye injury chemcials and a severe skin irritant. Behavior in Fire: It may decompose to yield acrid smoke and fumes.
Combustion products
May contain acrid smoke and fumes including toxic acrylic acid, one of the most serious eye injury chemcials and a severe skin irritant.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Seek medical attention. If individual is drowsy or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth; place individual on the left side with the head down. Contact a physician, medical facility, or poison control center for advice about whether to induce vomiting. If possible, do not leave individual unattended.
