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.
Goggles or face shield; rubber gloves. 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. Protection required for safe handling of acrylic acid and esters commonly includes use of impervious gloves, shoe soles, and clothing; splash-proof goggles.
Use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator appropriate for exposure of concern.
Evacuate area and ventilate. Wear protective equipment. If required, use an inert absrobent. Sweep up and place in an appropriate container for disposal. Wash contaminated surfaces.
Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products Reacts with strong oxidants.
Fire Extinguishing Agents Not to Be Used: Water may be ineffective.Fire Extinguishing Agents: Foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide
May polymerize to gummy solid. Reaction is not violent.
Fatigue, headache, and numbness of the tongue were reported following dermal exposure in one worker. Hea (2-hydroxyethyl acrylate) had minimal neurotoxic potential in one animal study. No human data were found at the time of this review with the exception of 1 case of menstrual irregularities from exposure to several acrylates. Animal studies at the time of this review did not show conclusive evidence of fetotoxicity or teratogenicity.
Nausea and vomiting have been reported following dermal exposure in one worker.
Inhalation causes mild irritation of nose and throat. Eyes are mildly irritated by vapor, more severely by liquid. Prolonged contact of liquid with skin may cause irritation.
Skin irritation, necrosis, and allergic contact dermatitis have been reported in workers.
Immediately dilute with 4 to 8 ounces (120 to 240 ml) of milk or water (not to exceed 4 ounces/120 ml in a child). Exposed individuals should have a careful, thorough medical history and physical examination performed, looking for any abnormalities. Exposure to chemicals with a strong odor often results in such nonspecific symptoms as headache, dizziness, weakness, and nausea.
Move to fresh air.
Wipe off, wash well with soap and water.
Flush with water for at least 15 min. after contact with liquid.
