Safety Profile
Poison by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. Moderately toxic by skin contact. Mddly toxic by inhalation. Human systemic effects by inhalation: olfaction effects, eye effects, and respiratory effects. A skin and eye irritant. Mutation data reported. Chronic exposure has produced injury to lungs, liver, and kidneys in experimental animals. Questionable carcinogen. Dangerously flammable when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidzers. Dangerous explosion hazard in the form of vapor when exposed to heat, sparks, or flame. Can react vigorously with oxidzing materials. A storage hazard; it forms peroxides, which may initiate exothermic polymerization. To fight fire, use foam, COa, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Hazard Information

General Description
Colorless volatile liquid with an acrid odor. Flash point 27°F. Vapors may irritate the eyes and respiratory system. Highly toxic by inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption. Less dense than water (0.957 gm/cm3) and slightly soluble in water, hence floats on water. Vapors heavier than air.
Reactivity Profile
METHYL ACRYLATE ignites readily when exposed to heat, flame or sparks. Offers a dangerous fire and explosion hazard. Reacts vigorously with strong oxidizing materials. Forms peroxides when exposed to air that may initiate spontaneous exothermic polymerization. Peroxide formation usually proceeds slowly. Added inhibitor retards polymerization. If the inhibitor is consumed during long storage, explosive polymerization may occur [MCA Case History No. 2033]. Also subject to strongly exothermic polymerization if heated for prolonged periods or contaminated.
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. Forms peroxides when exposed to air that may initiate spontaneous, exothermic polymerization. Peroxide formation usually proceeds slowly. Slightly soluble in water.
Hazard
Flammable, dangerous fire and explosion risk. Toxic by inhalation, ingestion, and skin absorption; irritant to skin, eyes and upper respiratory tract irritant; eye damage. Questionable carcinogen.
Health Hazard
May irritate skin, eyes, respiratory system, and gastro-intestinal tract. Fumes cause tears.
Potential Exposure
Methyl acrylate is used in production of acrylates, copolymers, barrier resins; and surfactants for shampoos; as a monomer in the manufacture of polymers for plastic films, textiles, paper, and leather coating resins. It is also used as a pesticide intermediate and in pharmaceutical manufacture.
First aid
If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit. Medical observation is recommended for 24 to 48 hours after breathing overexposure, as pulmonary edema may be delayed. As first aid for pulmonary edema, a doctor or authorized paramedic may consider administering a drug or other inhalation therapy.
Shipping
UN1919 Methyl acrylate, stabilized, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.
Incompatibilities
Forms explosive mixture in air. Incompatible with nitrates, oxidizers, such as peroxides, strong alkalis. Polymerizes easily from heat, light, peroxides; usually contains an inhibitor, such as hydroquinone.
Waste Disposal
Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed. Consult with environmental regulatory agencies for guidance on acceptable disposal practices. Generators of waste containing this contaminant (≥100 kg/mo) must conform to EPA regulations governing storage, transportation, treatment, and waste disposal
