Safe Handling Practices: Methacrylic Acid

Description

This SACHE product introduces students to the hazards of handling acrylic monomers along with safe handling practices that are relevant for handling any monomer. Acrylic monomers have some unique challenges including being corrosive and combustible with the potential for unanticipated, uncontrolled exothermic runaway reactions. The product includes five files that give an excellent introduction for handling monomers:

Note that a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) and International Safety Card (containing NIOSH safety information) are included for methacrylic acid; since this information can become stale, updated information (available on the web) should be obtained when this instructional material is used.

Student access: All files are available to students logged into the site.
