Risk Of Vinyl Silane Use

As a common vinyl silane, vinyl trimethoxysilane is suitable for polyethylene and copolymer of all kinds of complex shapes and densities, as well as for composite materials with large processing process tolerance and filling materials, etc, with high service temperature, excellent pressure cracking resistance, memory resistance, wear resistance and impact resistance. The polyethylene and other polymers can be modified by grafting onto the polymer backbone, with the side chains containing the ester group of the product as the active point for cross-linking in warm water. Grafted polyethylene can be made into molded products, such as cable sheath and insulation, pipe or other extruded and molded products.

Physical and chemical hazards of vinyl silane: liquids and vapors are highly flammable. Exposure to heat, open flame or oxidants can cause serious fire hazards. Steam can travel long distances and come into contact with the ignition source. When subjected to thermal energy, it causes expansion or decomposition, resulting in a sharp rupture of the container. When it is burned it produces poisonous carbon monoxide gas.

Health hazard: Inhalation causes cough which irritates mucous membranes and upper respiratory tract. Oral administration results in headache, which irritates the mouth and stomach sickly. Irritate eyes and skin.

Environmental hazard: no data available.
GHS hazard class: according to the general principles for classification and risk publicity of chemicals (GB 3690-2009) and the series of specifications for chemical classification, warning labels and warning instructions, this product belongs to flammable liquid-2 and acute toxicity -- inhalation -- 4.

First aid: skin contact: remove contaminated clothing immediately and rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Go to see a doctor.

Eye contact: lift eyelids immediately and rinse with running water or saline for at least 15 minutes. Go to see a doctor.

Inhalation: quickly leave the site to the place with fresh air. Keep the respiratory tract open.
If patients breathe difficultly, transport oxygen. If patients stops breathing, give artificial respiration immediately. Go to see a doctor.

Ingestion: gargle with water and give milk or egg white for patients to drink. Seek medical advice.
