CAUSESRESPIRATORY TRACT AND EYE IRRITATION. MAY CAUSE SKIN IRRITATION. MAY CAUSE TARGET ORGAN DAMAGE, BASED ON ANIMAL DATA.POSSIBLE CANCER HAZARD – MAY CAUSE CANCER, BASED ON ANIMAL DATA.Potential chronic health effects:CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS:Classified A3 (proven for animals) by ACGIH2B (possible for humans) by IARCRisk of Cancer depends on duration and level of exposure.MUTAGENIC EFFECTS:No known significant effects or critical hazards.REPRODUCTION TOXICITY:No known significant effects or critical hazards.2.2. Label: See table above.2.3. Other hazards: None known.3. Composition/information on 7-023-00-0EC-No.203-545-44. First Aid Measures4.1. Description of first aid measuresEye Contact:Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes,occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical attention immediately.Skin Contact:In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothingand shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.Inhalation:Move exposed person to fresh air. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificialrespiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention immediately.Ingestion:Wash out mouth and water. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anythingby mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention immediately.4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:Dizziness, Gastrointestinal disturbance, and drowsiness.Drying-out effect resulting in rough and chapped skin.4.3. Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:No additional information available.5. Firefighting measures5.1. Extinguishing mediaSuitable extinguishing media:Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray (fog) or foamUnsuitable extinguishing media:Do no use a water jet.5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:Extremely flammable liquid. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the contain may burst, with risk of subsequent explosion.The vapor/gas is heavier than air and will spread along the ground. Vapors may accumulate in low or confined areas or travel a considerabledistance to a source of ignition and flash back. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard.SAFETY DATA SHEET according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, Regulation (EC) No.1907/2006Vinyl Acetate Monomer, rev 2 7/2012Page 3

Vinyl Acetate MonomerSafety Data SheetInternational Vinyl Acetate Company5.3. Advice for fire fighters:Special protective equipment for fire fighters: Fire fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathingapparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.Further information: Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall betaken involving an personal risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water sprayto keep fire-exposed containers cool. Do not allow fire extinguishing water to contaminate surface or groundwater systems.6. Accidental release measures6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:Advice for non-emergency personnel: Evacuate the danger zone; follow emergency precautions. Secure emergency assistance immediately.Avoid contact with the material; do not breath vapors or aerosol. If possible, provide additional ventilation.Advice for emergency responders: Do not take action without proper training and emergency equipment. See Section 8 for additionalinformation. Evacuate surrounding areas. Eliminate all ignition sources including flares and all open flames. Avoid all contact with spillermaterial. Maintain adequate ventilation and wear appropriate respiratory protection.6.2. Environmental precautions:Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the producthas caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).6.3. Methods and materials for containment:Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach release from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, surface waters,basements or confined areas. Wash spillage into effluent treatment plant. Contain and collect spillage using appropriate personal protectiveequipment. Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handing chemicalproducts or if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Collect and contain spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material (e.g. sand,earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth) and place in a container for disposal according to local regulations. Use spark-proof tools andexplosion proof equipment. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard(s) as the spilled product.6.4. Reference to other sections:See disposal instruction 13 and exposure controls Section 8.7. Handling and storage7.1. Precautions for safe handling:Observe all label precautions. Use appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8). Eating, drinking and smoking should beprohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking andsmoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest. Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wearappropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Do not enter storage areas and confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Keep inthe original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use awayfrom heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use explosion-proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling)equipment. Use non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipatestatic electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Empty containers retainproduct residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from flames and sources of ignition – including static.7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct sunlightin a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10) and food and drink. Eliminate all ignition sources.Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must becarefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoidenvironmental contamination.7.3. Specific end uses:No other additional special end uses are anticipated.SAFETY DATA SHEET according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, Regulation (EC) No.1907/2006Vinyl Acetate Monomer, rev 2 7/2012Page 4
