- Hazardous products formed by fire or thermal decomposition: Irritating organic vapors
- Unusual fire and explosion hazards: Do not use cloth to wipe up spills. Use water on spills to polymerize and then scrape up residue.
- Special fire fighting procedure: Wear self contained breathing apparatus and protective closing to prevent contact with skin, eyes, or inhale the vapors.
- Over exposure to decomposition of products may be a health hazard.
- 5 - Spill or leak and disposal procedures - Steps to be taken if material spills or leaks:
- Flood area to polymerize (cure).
- Soak with innert absorbent
Recommended methods of disposal:
- Polymerize as above
- Incinerate, or solid adhesive can be land filled in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local environmental regulations.
- 6 - Storage and Handling:
- Store out of direct sunlight at or bellow 72°F to preserve the shelf life
- Avoid contact with eyes and skin
- Avoid breathing vapor
- 7 - Reactivity Data:
- Stability: Stable
- Hazadrous Polymerization: Will not occur
- Hazadrous decomposition: (non thermal): None
- Incompatibility: Polymerized by contact with water, alcohols, amines, alkalines
- 8 - Emergency Treatment Procedures:
- Ingestion: See supplement
- Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Treat symptomatically.
- Skin and Eye contact: see supplement
- Ventilation: Local exhaust, cross air movement. Vent downwards as vapors are heavier than air
- Protective gloves: Polyethylene
- Eye protection: Safety glasses
- Other: Eye bath and washing station nearby
- 9 - Health Hazard Data:
- Toxicity: Bonds skin rapidly and strongly.
- Skin and eye irritant
- Estimated oral LD50 greater than 5,000 mg/kg
- Estimated dermal LD50 greater than 2,000 mg/kg
- Prinary routes of entry: N/A
- Signs and Symptoms of exposure: Vapour is irritating to the eyes and mucous membranes above TLV. Prolonged and repeated overexposure to vapors may produce allergic reactions with asthma like symptoms in sensitive individuals
- Other Precautions:
- Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing.
- Keep out of reach of children!
- See Supplement and read instructions carefully
- SUPPLEMENT - Skin adhesion:
- First immerse the bonded surface in warm, soapy water
- Peel or roll the surface apart with the aid of a blunt edge (pencil, spoon handle etc.), than remove the adhesive from the skin with soap and water.
- DO NOT try to pull surfaces apart with direct opposing action
Eyelid to Eyelid or eyeball adhesion:
- In the event that the eyelids are stuck together or bonded to the eyeball, wash throughly with warm water and apply gauze patch. The eye will open without further action, typically in one to four days. There will be no residual damage.
- DO NOT try to open eyes by manipulation. Let the natural cleansing of the eye take place.
Adhesive on the eyeball:
- Cyanoacrylate introduced into the eye will attach itself to an eye protein and will disassociate from it over intermittent periods, generally covering several hours. This will cause periods of tearing untill the clearance is achieved.
- The adhesive residue will flush out of the eye normally in a matter of hours, even with gross contamination.
- If lips are accidentally stuck together, apply a lots of warm water to the lips and encourage maximum wetting and pressure from saliva inside the mouth.
- Peel or roll lips appart.
- DO NOT try to pull the lips appart with direct opposing action
- It is almost iompossible to swallow cyanoacrylate. The adhesive solidifies and adheres in the mouth
- Saliva will lift the adhesive in 1/2 - 2 days
- Cyanoacrylates give of heat on solidification.
- In rare causes a large amount will increase the temperature enough to cause a burn
- Should a buirn occur, it should be treated using normal medical procedures
