UN Class or Division /  Subsidiary Risks

BUTYL ACRYLATE
141-32-2

3

BUTYL METHACRYLATE
97-88-1

3

ETHYL ACRYLATE
140-88-5

The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible • Vapours are uninhibited and may form polymers in vents or flame arrestors, resulting in stoppage of vents

The substance may polymerize spontaneously due to warming and under the influence of light

3

ETHYL METHACRYLATE
97-63-2

The vapour mixes well with air, explosive mixtures are easily formed

The substance may polymerize violently due to warming and under the influence of light or when in contact with strong oxidants

3

2-ETHYLHEXYL ACRYLATE
103-11-7

The substance may polymerize due to heating under the influence of acid, alkalies, amines, peroxides, oxidizing agents

2-HYDROXYPROPYL ACRYLATE
999-61-1

The substance can polymerize due to heating, initiators, UV light • The substance decomposes on heating producing acrid fumes (acrylic acid, acroleine)

8

METHYL ACRYLATE
96-33-3

The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible

The substance may polymerize due to warming or under the influence of light • Reacts with strong oxidants causing fire and explosion hazard

3

METHYL METHACRYLATE
80-62-6

3

For UN Class: 1.5 = very insensitive substances which have a mass explosion hazard; 2.1 = flammable gas; 2.3 = toxic gas; 3 = flammable liquid; 4.1 = flammable solid; 4.2 = substance liable to spontaneous combustion; 4.3 = substance which in contact with water emits flammable gases; 5.1 = oxidizing substance; 6.1 = toxic; 7 = radioactive; 8 = corrosive substance
