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.
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.
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not appl
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 Extinguishing Agents: Small fires: dry chemical, CO 2 , water spray or foam; large fires: water spray, fog or foam.
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.
May contain acrid smoke and fumes including toxic acrylic acid, one of the most serious eye injury chemcials and a severe skin irritant.
INHALATION: Higher concentrations may cause pronounced pulmonary irritation or edema. Prolonged contact may cause severe damage to tissues. May be fatal if swallowed or absorbed through skin.
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.
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. Wash exposed area with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Launder clothing before reuse.
If symptoms develop, immediately move individual away from exposure and into fresh air. Flush eyes gently with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids apart; seek immediate medical attention.
