RAMSET CHEMSET MAXIMA SPIN CAPSULES Chemwatch Independent Material Safety Data Sheet Issue Date: 24-Jan-2011 CHEMWATCH 4833-73 Version No:6 CD 2010/4 Page 2 of 8 Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES SWALLOWED ■ - If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. - If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration. - Observe the patient carefully. - Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness; i.e. becoming unconscious. EYE ■ If this product comes in contact with the eyes: - Wash out immediately with fresh running water. - Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. - Seek medical attention without delay; if pain persists or recurs seek medical attention. - Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel. SKIN ■ If skin contact occurs: - Immediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear. - Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available). - Seek medical attention in event of irritation. INHALED ■ - If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area. - Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested. - Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where possible, prior to initiating first aid procedures. - Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve mask device, or pocket mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary. NOTES TO PHYSICIAN ■ Treat symptomatically. Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES EXTINGUISHING MEDIA ■ - Alcohol stable foam. - Dry chemical powder. - Carbon dioxide. - Water spray or fog - Large fires only. Do not use a water jet to fight fire. FIRE FIGHTING ■ - Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard. - May be violently or explosively reactive. - Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves. - Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course. When any large container (including road and rail tankers) is involved in a fire, consider evacuation by 500 metres in all directions. FIRE/EXPLOSION HAZARD ■ - Liquid and vapour are highly flammable. - Severe fire hazard when exposed to heat, flame and/or oxidisers. - Vapour may travel a considerable distance to source of ignition. - Heating may cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers. Combustion products include: carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), other pyrolysis products typical of burning organic material. FIRE INCOMPATIBILITY ■ - Avoid contamination with oxidising agents i.e. nitrates, oxidising acids, chlorine bleaches, pool chlorine etc. as ignition may result.

MAJOR SPILLS ■ - Clear area of personnel and move upwind. - Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard. - May be violently or explosively reactive. - Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves. Personal Protective Equipment advice is contained in Section 8 of the MSDS. Section 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE PROCEDURE FOR HANDLING ■ - Containers, even those that have been emptied, may contain explosive vapours. - Do NOT cut, drill, grind, weld or perform similar operations on or near containers. The substance is a peroxidisable vinyl monomer that may exothermically polymerise as a result of decomposition of accumulated peroxides; that is, the peroxides initiate very energetic polymerisation of the bulk monomer Purchases of peroxidisable chemicals should be restricted to ensure that the chemical is used completely before it can become peroxidised. - A responsible person should maintain an inventory of peroxidisable chemicals or annotate the general chemical inventory to indicate which chemicals are subject to peroxidation. An expiration date should be determined. The chemical should either be treated to remove peroxides or disposed of before this date. - The person or laboratory receiving the chemical should record a receipt date on the bottle. The individual opening the container should add an opening date. - Unopened containers received from the supplier should be safe to store for 18 months. - Opened containers of inhibited material should not be stored for more than 12 months; they should NOT be stored under an inert atmosphere. Generally, storage of inhibited vinyl monomers should be under air rather than nitrogen or other inert atmosphere, because customary inhibitors are phenolic compounds, which require oxygen for their action. Most vinyl monomers may be polymerized without removal of inhibitor by proper adjustment of initiator concentration, thus making the isolation of the more hazardous uninhibited material unnecessary. - Avoid all personal contact, including inhalation. - Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs. - Use in a well-ventilated area. - Prevent concentration in hollows and sumps. - DO NOT allow clothing wet with material to stay in contact with skin. SUITABLE CONTAINER ■ - Packing as supplied by manufacturer. - Plastic containers may only be used if approved for flammable liquid. - Check that containers are clearly labelled and free from leaks. - For low viscosity materials (i) : Drums and jerry cans must be of the non-removable head type. (ii) : Where a can is to be used as an inner package, the can must have a screwed enclosure. - For materials with a viscosity of at least 2680 cSt. (23 deg. C) - For manufactured product having a viscosity of at least 250 cSt. (23 deg. C) - Manufactured product that requires stirring before use and having a viscosity of at least 20 cSt (25 deg. C). STORAGE INCOMPATIBILITY ■ - Avoid reaction with oxidising agents. STORAGE REQUIREMENTS ■ Easily peroxidisable. - Products formed as a result of peroxidation are not only safety hazards but may chemically alter the chemical behavior of the parent compound. - Should have a warning label affixed bearing the date of receipt in the laboratory and the date on which the container label is first opened, or laboratory synthesised materials are the responsibility of the individual chemist. - WARNING:This product may form peroxides which themselves are not themselves particularly hazardous but which on decomposition may initiate explosive polymerisation of the bulk monomer (Trommsdorf effect). - Should be evaluated every 12 months, redated if safe or else discarded. - Storage requires stabilising inhibitor content and dissolved oxygen content to be monitored. Refer to manufacturer's recommended levels. - DO NOT overfill containers so as to maintain free head space above product. - Blanketing or sparging with nitrogen or oxygen free gas will deactivate stabiliser. - Store in original containers in approved flame-proof area. - No smoking, naked lights, heat or ignition sources. - DO NOT store in pits, depressions, basements or areas where vapours may be trapped. - Keep containers securely sealed. continued.

A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly. [CDC NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59]. HANDS/FEET ■ NOTE: - The material may produce skin sensitisation in predisposed individuals. Care must be taken, when removing gloves and other protective equipment, to avoid all possible skin contact. - Contaminated leather items, such as shoes, belts and watch-bands should be removed and destroyed. Suitability and durability of glove type is dependent on usage. Important factors in the selection of gloves include: such as: - frequency and duration of contact, - chemical resistance of glove material, - glove thickness and - dexterity. General warning: Do NOT use latex gloves! Use only recommended gloves - using the wrong gloves may increase the risk:

OTHER ■ - Overalls. - PVC Apron. - PVC protective suit may be required if exposure severe. - Eyewash unit. - Some plastic personal protective equipment (PPE) (e.g. gloves, aprons, overshoes) are not recommended as they may produce static electricity. - For large scale or continuous use wear tight-weave non-static clothing (no metallic fasteners, cuffs or pockets), non sparking safety footwear. ENGINEERING CONTROLS ■ For flammable liquids and flammable gases, local exhaust ventilation or a process enclosure ventilation system may be required. Ventilation equipment should be explosion-resistant. Air contaminants generated in the workplace possess varying "escape" velocities which, in turn, determine the "capture velocities" of fresh circulating air required to effectively remove the contaminant.

Section 10 - STABILITY AND REACTIVITY CONDITIONS CONTRIBUTING TO INSTABILITY ■ - Stable under controlled storage conditions provided material contains adequate stabiliser / polymerisation inhibitor. - Bulk storages may have special storage requirements - WARNING: Gradual decomposition in strong, sealed containers may lead to a large pressure build-up and subsequent explosion. Rapid and violent polymerisation possible at temperatures above 32 deg c. For incompatible materials - refer to Section 7 - Handling and Storage. Section 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS ACUTE HEALTH EFFECTS
■ Vapours may cause dizziness or suffocation.
■ May cause SENSITISATION by skin contact. TOXICITY AND IRRITATION ■ unless otherwise specified data extracted from RTECS - Register of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances.
■ Contact allergies quickly manifest themselves as contact eczema, more rarely as urticaria or Quincke's oedema. The pathogenesis of contact eczemainvolves a cell-mediated (T lymphocytes) immune reaction of the delayed type.
DIBENZOYL PEROXIDE:METHYL METHACRYLATE:■ The substance is classified by IARC as Group 3:
NOT classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans.
Evidence of carcinogenicity may be inadequate or limited in animal testing.
METHYL METHACRYLATE:RAMSET CHEMSET MAXIMA SPIN CAPSULES:■ Where no "official" classification for acrylates and methacrylates exists, there has been cautious attempts to create classifications in theabsence of contrary evidence. For exampleMonalkyl or monoarylesters of acrylic acids should be classified as R36/37/38 and R51/53Monoalkyl or monoaryl esters of methacrylic acid should be classified as R36/37/38. ■ Asthma-like symptoms may continue for months or even years after exposure to the material ceases. This may be due to a non-allergenic conditionknown as reactive airways dysfunction syndrome (RADS) which can occur following exposure to high levels of highly irritating compound. continued.

Dermal (rabbit) LD50: >5000 mg/kgInhalation (rat) LC50: 3750 ppm *Dermal (rabbit) LD50: 35500 mg/kg *■ For methyl methacrylate:Acute toxicity: MMA is rapidly absorbed after oral or inhalatory administration. In vitro skin absorption studies in human skin indicate that MMA canbe absorbed through human skin. After inhalation to rats 10 to 20% of the substance is deposited in the upper respiratory tract where it ismetabolised by local tissue esterases. Acute toxicity of MMA by the oral, dermal, and inhalative routes is low as judged by tests with different species: The oral LD50 for rats, mice, andrabbits is found to exceed 5000 mg/kg bw. Based on the available oncogenicity data and without a better understanding of the carcinogenic mechanism the Health and Environmental ReviewDivision (HERD), Office of Toxic Substances (OTS), of the US EPA previously concluded that all chemicals that contain the acrylate or methacrylatemoiety (CH2=CHCOO or CH2=C(CH3)COO) should be considered to be a carcinogenic hazard unless shown otherwise by adequate testing. This position has now been revised and acrylates and methacrylates are no longer de facto carcinogens. Inhalation (human) TCLo: 60 mg/m³(15 ppm) [* Manuf. Rohm & Haas]
Subcutaneous (Rat) LD: 40 mg/kg (@ 50%)Intraperitoneal (Mouse) LD50: 440 mg/kgIntravenous (Rabbit) LD: 16 mg/kg■ The material may be irritating to the eye, with prolonged contact causing inflammation. Repeated or prolonged exposure to irritants may produceconjunctivitis. The material may cause skin irritation after prolonged or repeated exposure and may produce a contact dermatitis (nonallergic). This form ofdermatitis is often characterised by skin redness (erythema) and swelling epidermis. For benzoyl peroxide:The acute oral toxicity of benzoyl peroxide is very low: LD50 >2,000 mg/kg bw in mice, and 5,000 mg/kg bw in rats. No deaths occurred in male ratsfollowing inhalation of 24.3 mg/L. Benzoyl peroxide was slightly irritating to skins in 24 hr-patch tests. REPROTOXIN methyl methacrylate

Section 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Ecotoxicity Ingredient Section 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
■ - Containers may still present a chemical hazard/ danger when empty. - Return to supplier for reuse/ recycling if possible. Otherwise:- If container can not be cleaned sufficiently well to ensure that residuals do not remain or if the container cannot be used to store the same product, then puncture containers, to prevent re-use, and bury at an authorised landfill. - Where possible retain label warnings and MSDS and observe all notices pertaining to the product. Legislation addressing waste disposal requirements may differ by country, state and/ or territory. Each user must refer to laws operating in their area. A Hierarchy of Controls seems to be common - the user should investigate:- Reduction. - DO NOT allow wash water from cleaning or process equipment to enter drains. - It may be necessary to collect all wash water for treatment before disposal. - In all cases disposal to sewer may be subject to local laws and regulations and these should be considered first. - Where in doubt contact the responsible authority. - Recycle wherever possible. - Consult manufacturer for recycling options or consult local or regional waste management authority for disposal if no suitable treatment or disposal facility can be identified. - Dispose of by: burial in a land-fill specifically licenced to accept chemical and / or pharmaceutical wastes or Incineration in a licenced apparatus (after admixture with suitable combustible material). - Decontaminate empty containers. Observe all label safeguards until containers are cleaned and destroyed. continued.
