2. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Nature
Cyanoacrylate adhesive.
Hazardous Components in Product for EC
Component Name Concentration R Phrases Classification
Ethyl Cyanoacrylate 60.00 – 99.00 R36/37/38 Xi
3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
R36/37/38 Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin.
Bonds skin and eyes in seconds. Highly reactive to water. (See Section 4 on first aid).
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
First Aid – Inhalation
Remove affected person to fresh air and if still feeling unwell seek medical attention.
First Aid – Skin
Do not pull bonded skin apart. It may be gently peeled apart using a blunt object such as a spoon, preferably after soaking in warm soapy water. Cyanoacrylates give off heat on solidification. In rare cases a large drop will generate enough heat to cause a burn. Burns should be treated normally after the adhesive has been removed from the skin.
If lips are accidentally stuck together apply warm water to the lips and encourage maximum wetting and pressure from saliva inside the mouth. Peel or roll lips apart. Do not try to pull the lips apart with direct opposing action.First Aid – Eyes
If the eye is bonded closed, release eyelashes with warm water by covering with wet pad. Cyanoacrylate will bond to eye protein and will cause periods of weeping which will help to debond the adhesive. Keep eye covered until debonding is complete, usually within 1-3 days. Do not force eye open. Medical advice should be sought in case solid particles of cyanoacrylate trapped behind the eyelid cause any abrasive damage.First Aid – Ingestion
Ensure that breathing passages are not obstructed. The product will polymerise immediately in the mouth making it almost impossible to swallow. Saliva will slowly separate the solidified product from the mouth (several hours).
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Non flammable product (flash point is greater than 80°C (CC)). If product is involved in fire extinguish with dry powder, foam or carbon dioxide. Trace amounts of toxic fumes may be released on incineration and the use of breathing apparatus is recommended.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Ventilate area. Do not use cloths for mopping up. Polymerise with water and scrape off floor.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling
Ventilation (low level) is recommended when using large volumes. Use of dispensing equipment is recommended to minimise the risk of skin or eye contact.
Storage
For optimum shelf life store in original containers under refrigerated conditions at 2°C to 8°C.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTIONThe TLV for ethyl cyanoacrylate is 0.2ppm(ACGIH, TWA).Polyethylene or polypropylene gloves are recommended when using large volumes. Do not use PVC, rubber, nylon or cotton gloves. Eye protection should be used where there is any risk of splashing.
9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

Odour Sharp. Characteristic.
pH Not applicable.
Boiling Range/Point (°C) Boils above 100.
Flash Point (CC) (°C) Exceeds 80.
Specific Gravity 1.05 – 1.08 at 20 °C.
Solubility in Water (kg/m³) Immiscible.
Solubility in Acetone Not applicable.
Vapour Pressure(mmHg @ 25°C) Less than 0.5 at 25 °C.
Explosion Limits (%) Not determined.
10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Polymerisation will occur in the presence of moisture.
11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Inhalation
In dry atmosphere with < 50% humidity, vapours may irritate the eyes and respiratory system. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of vapours may lead to chronic effects in sensitive individuals.
Skin
Bonds skin in seconds. Considered to be of low toxicity: acute dermal LD50 (rabbit)>2000mg/kg. Due to polymerisation at the skin surface allergic reaction is not considered possible.Eyes
Liquid product will bond eyelids. In a dry atmosphere (RH<50%) vapours may cause irritation and lachrymatory effect.Ingestion
Cyanoacrylates are considered to have relatively low toxicity. Acute oral LD50 is >5000mg/kg (rat). It is almost impossible to swallow as it rapidly polymerises in the mouth.
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Biodegradable product of low ecotoxicity. Does not contain and is not manufactured with any of the substances listed on the Montreal protocol.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Dispose of in accordance with local and national regulations. Polymerise by adding slowly to water (10:1). Dispose of as water insoluble non-toxic solid chemical in authorised landfill or incinerate under controlled conditions.
14. TRANSPORT INFORMATION
UN Number None
AIR (IATA) Not classified.
Sea (IMO) Not classified.
Road (ADR)/Rail(RID) Not classified.
15. REGULATORY INFORMATION
Contains Cyanoacrylate.
Danger.
