Immediately remove any contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated area
Skin
thoroughly with soap and copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. If
irritation or adverse symptoms develop, seek medical attention.
Remove any contact lenses at once. Flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes.
Eyes
Ensure adequate flushing by separating the eyelids with fingers. If irritation or
adverse symptoms develop, seek medical attention.

extinguish an MEKP fire, the extinguished area must be thoroughly wetted down with
water to prevent re-ignition.
The heat of decomposition of the peroxides adds to the heat of the fire. Dry chemical

vermiculite, or sand. Sweep up using non-sparking tools and place in a clean
polyethylene drum or a polyethylene pail. DO NOT place into a steel container,
lined or unlined, as a decomposition may occur. Treat any contaminated
cardboard packaging as hazardous waste. Wet container contents with additional
water prior to sealing.

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Rotate stock using the oldest material first. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and
HANDLING
clothing. Use PPE as specified in Section 8. Keep containers closed to prevent
contamination. Keep away from sources of heat, sparks or flame. Do not add to hot
solvents or monomers as a violent decomposition and/or reaction may result. When
using spray equipment, never spray raw MEKP onto curing or into raw resin or flues.
Keep MEKP in its original container. DO NOT USE NEAR FOOD OR DRINK. Wash
thoroughly after handling.
The stability of MEKP formulations is directly related to the shipping and storage

temperature history. Cool storage at 80癋 (27癈) or below is recommended for
longer shelf life and stability. Prolonged storage at elevated temperatures of 100癋
(38癈) and higher will cause product degradation, gassing and potential container
rupture which can result in a fire and/or explosion. Store out of direct sunlight in a
well ventilated area away from combustible and incompatible materials. DO NOT
STORE WITH FOOD OR DRINK. Refer to NFPA 432 Code for the Storage of
Organic Peroxide Formulations from the National Fire Protection Association for
additional storage information.
Unmixed, uncontaminated material, remaining at the end of the day, shall be

material be returned to the original container.

SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROL/PERSONAL PROTECTION
If airborne concentrations are expected to exceed acceptable levels wear a NIOSH

approved air-purifying respirator with an organic vapor cartridge or canister. When
using respirators refer to OSHA'29CFR 1910.134.
