- Vapors and liquids can irritate eyes, skin and respiratory system. 04mg/L。 High concentration of steam has anesthetic effect, oral damage to internal organs, the maximum allowable concentration in the air is 0. 04mg/L. The workplace should be well ventilated and operators should wear masks.
- Use metal buckets, and place the container to prevent damage. Best stored outdoors or in a flammable warehouse. 05%～0. 06%的polymerization inhibitor is often added during storage because the molecule contains conjugated double bonds and is prone to polymerization. Samples were taken weekly for analysis to verify inhibitor and polymer content.
