 3. Hazards Identification

Emergency Overview: Caution: Irritant to eyes, skin. Heated vapors irritate respiratory tract.

Potential Health Effects:

  • Signs and Symptoms of Acute Overexposure: Eye, skin irritation. Inhalation of heated vapors may irritate the respiratory tract.
  • Signs and Symptoms of Chronic overexposure: Prolonged inhalation of concentrated.heated vapors may cause damage to the kidneys. Reddening and swelling of affected area with possile itching, burning or other discomfort.
  • Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Existing cuts, rashes, allergies, or other sensitive areas.
  • Ingestion: Ingestion may result in abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.

 5. Fire Fighting Measures

 Flash Point: > 200 degrees F (PMCC)

Flammability Limits: NDA

Autoignition temp: NDA

Fire Extinguishing Media: Any available extinguishing including water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, Halon 1211

Special Fire-Fighting Information: Spilled chemical creates extremely slippery conditions, especially in contact with water. Use caution. Respiratory and eye protection are reqyired. Petroleum component is combustible, if separated from other ingredients. Vapors/fumes will ignite.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Hydrocarbon components are combustible if separated from the emulsion.

 6. Accidental Release Measures

Remove sources of ignition. Contain and collect, using a suitable absorbent, if needed. Place into suitable container(s) for disposal. Thoruhgly flush residuals to drain, as spilled product creates extremely slippery conditions.

 7. Handling and Storage

 Handle as an irritant. Do not get in eyes. Avoid prolonged/repeated skin contact. Do not inhale vapors/mists. Do not ingest. Store away from sources of ignition. Spilled product creates very slippery condition, especially in contact with water.

 8. Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection

  • Ventilation System: Good general ventilation is advisable. Local exhaust desired.
  • Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): None required for normal use and processes. if needed, use respirator to filter out mists/vapors.
  • Skin Protection: Long sleeved clothing, impervious rubber or neoprene gloves and protective apron.
  • Eye Protection: Safety glasses or goggles
  • Other Control Measures: Minimize exposure in accordance with good hygiene practice. Avoid handling which would create large amounts of mists/vapors. Exxon Medical Research recommended inhalation TLV for CAS 64742-47-8 of 200 ppm.

 12. Ecological Information

  • Environmental Fate: There is no possibility for this product to bioaccumulate. This product's high molecular weight renders microbial attack very difficult, so it is recalcitrant to microbial degradation, until UV light breaks it down through photolysis into oligomers, which are bioavailable for microbial mineralization. Both acrylamide and sodium acrylate are readily biodegradable under aerobic condions, to 90% within 25 days. IF it is ever considered important to bioremediate the petroleum solvent in this polymer, use Alken Clear-Flo 7008, a selected consortium of live-culture bacteria that target industrial wastewater chemicals, including petroleum hydrocarbons.
  • Aquatic Toxicology:
  • Toxicity to Fish:
LC50 Brachydanio rerio/96 hours =357 mg/L
LC50 Brachydanio rerio/96 hours =178 mg/L
  • Toxicity to Daphnia
EC50/Daphnia Magna/48 hours= 212 mg/L
  • Toxicity to Algae
EC50/Chlorella vulgaris/96 hours= 1,000 mg/L
No observed Effect Concentration = 708 mg/L
  • Toxicity to Bacteria
EC10/Pseudomonas putida/18 hours = 127 mg/L
EC50/Pseudomonas putida/18 hours = 892 mg/L
