Acrylic Acid Glacial (AA)

Acrylic Acid Glacial (AA) is an unsaturated monocarboxylic acid. Effective as a vinyl compound and as a carboxylic acid. It is easily subjected to radial (co)polymerization and addition reactions. Acrylic Acid (AK) copolymers can be prepared with (meth)acrylic esters, acrylonitrile, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, styrene, and other monomers by all known radical polymerization technologies.

Acrylic Acid Glacial (AA) is used to produce various esters from esterification reactions with alcohol.

To avoid polymerization, Acrylic Acid (AA) should always be stored in air and not under inert gases. For the stabilizer to function effectively, oxygen is required. Acrylic acid should be stored at a temperature of 15 to 25°C. For long-term storage of more than 4 weeks, it is recommended to replenish the content of dissolved oxygen. Under these conditions, the storage stability of one year can be expected. In order to minimize the likelihood of excess storage, the storage procedure must strictly follow the "first-come-first-go" principle. To prevent freezing, the temperature of acrylic acid should never drop below 15°C. Improper thawing can lead to severe polymerization. Do not attempt to defrost frozen or partially frozen acrylic acid unless you have obtained prior permission from your supplier. It is strongly recommended that emergency stabilization systems be installed. This can help prevent the polymerization of the material in case of overheating, contamination, or other unforeseen events, although this cannot replace appropriate preventative measures. During transportation, the temperature of Acrylic Acid (AA) should be maintained in the range of 15-25°C. Acrylic Acid (AA), packed in barrels, is transported in covered wagons, cars that provide storage conditions along the route. At temperatures above 130 ° C, transportation of acrylic acid in barrels by open road transport is allowed, provided that the product is protected from exposure to sunlight and precipitation. Acrylic Acid (AA) drum packaging is carried out on flat pallets. Means of fastening pallets - steel wire, steel or polymer tape, manufactured according to the normative-technical documentation, approved in the prescribed manner. Barrels should be filled to 0.9 volumes and sealed. Bulk Acrylic Acid (AA) in railway tanks is transported in accordance with the rules for the transport of goods operating on this type of transport. Acrylic Acid (AA), poured into tank containers, is transported by rail, road and sea in accordance with the rules for the transport of goods operating on this type of transport.

Safety

Acrylic Acid (AA) is a flammable and combustible liquid, it is easily polymerized by heat and initiators. The polymerization reaction proceeds with the release of heat, while the reaction self-accelerates, the temperature and vapor pressure increase sharply, which leads to the explosion of the tank, barrel, container, tank. The occurrence of a fire and explosion may be facilitated by the presence of an open-source of fire, smoking, local overheating, and violations during the conduct of hot work. The flash point is 48°C (in a closed crucible) and 54°C (in an open crucible). The auto-ignition temperature is 440°C. The flash point is 67°C. The temperature limits of flame spread are 48-93°C. The concentration limits of flame spread, volume fraction of 3-17%. The carbon dioxide, powder fire extinguishers are used to extinguish a fire. Acrylic Acid (AA) is very irritating to the skin. Irritating to the mucous membranes of the eyes (irritant threshold 0.04 mg / l). Eye contact causes severe burns to the cornea of ​​the eye and can cause permanent damage. Inhalation of vapors can cause irritation of the respiratory tract, headache, with high concentrations or exposure - pulmonary edema. Although odor does not mean any health hazard, air monitoring is required. The maximum permissible concentration in the air is 5 mg / m³.
