This is a flammable product and fire hazard is possible when certain conditions are present.
Containers used for handling and stocking this material are dangerous because vapours are heavier
than air and may be at the bottom.
ATTENTION :Risk of explosion in presence of sparks and opened flame.
Unusual fire and explosion hazard : Keep containers tightly closed and isolated from heat, electrical
equipment, sparks and flames. Never use welding or cutting torches on or near drum (even empty)
because product (even just residue) can ignite explosively.
If polymerisation takes place in a container, there is possibility of violent rupture of the container.
Vapours are uninhibited and may form polymers in vents or flame arrestors of storage tanks
resulting in stoppage of vents. This product is an irritant and is slightly absorbed by skin. Burn
