6.3 Measures for cleaning/collection: pick up mechanically. Subsequent cleaning with white spirit is possible.
6.4 Additional instructions: remove ignition sources.


7. Handling and storage
7.1 Handling: provide good ventilation for area and workplace.
7.2 Storage: keep container closed, store in a dry and cool place.


8. Exposure controls and personal protection
8.1 Additional instructions for construction of technical installations: Note Section 7.
8.2 Components with critical values that require monitoring at the workplace.
CAS no.: Component Type mg/m³ F/G
000064-19-7 Acetic acid MAK 25
8.3 Personal protective equipment:
General protective and hygienic measures: do not eat, drink or smoke at the workplace. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Breathing mask: required for prlonged or stronger influence (filter A)
Hand protection: not required if used carefully, otherwise protective gloves of PVC, PE or rubber.

9. Physical and chemical properties
9.1 Form: stable paste Colour: various Odour: like acetic acid
9.2 Change in condition:
Boiling point/range: n.a Flash point: n.a. Ignition point: > 400 °C
Explosion limit: lower: n.a. upper: n.a. Vapour pressure: 1 mbar (20°C) Density: 1 to 1.3 g/cm³
Solubility in water: insoluble pH-value: reacts acidic Viscosity: stable paste
9.3 Further information:
Thermal decomposition: not applicable


10. Stability and reactivity
10.0 General information: no dangerous reactions known when stored and handled properly.
10.2 Substances to avoid: reacts with water/humidity with formation of acetic acid.
10.3 Hazardous decomposition products: none known when stored and handled as prescribed.


11. Toxicological information
11.1 Acute toxicity: after reaction, vulcanizates are neither mutagenic, carcinogenic nor teratogenic and present no hazard for people and the environment.
11.4 Other toxicological information: product eliminates small amounts of acetic acid during polymerization. This can irritate the skin and mucous membranes.


12. Ecological information
12.3 Ecotoxic effects: silicone rubber is not biologically degradable, easy to separate from water mechanically.
12.4 Other ecological information: do not empty into bodies of water/drain. Vulcanizate is insoluble in water.


13. Disposal considerations
13.1 Product: burn in special waste incinerator according to instructions. Smaller amounts can be disposed of in a residential waste incinerator.
Depositing together with residential/commercial waste possible, if needed, after hardening. Regulations from local government agencies must be observed.
Waste catalog no.: not hardened: 55907 hardened: 55908
13.2 Contaminated packaging: deliver packaging, emptied of remainders, to recovery site acc. to applicable regulations.
