FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Flammable products are formed on contact with water. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames. NO contact with water.
Powder, carbon dioxide. NO hydrous agents. NO water.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Sore throat.
    Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN
  • Redness.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus).
    Separated from acids. Cool. Dry. Well closed. Keep in a well-ventilated room. Store only if stabilized.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    YELLOW POWDER OR CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating and on contact with acids and moisture producing toxic and flammable products including hydrogen sulfide and carbon disulfide.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV (as Mn): ppm; 5 mg/m3 (as TWA) (ACGIH 1994-1995).
    MAK not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the central nervous system.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Decomposes below melting point:
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.9
    Solubility in water: moderate
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to water organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use.
    N O T E S
    UN number 2968: Haz class 4.3; Pack Group III; Maneb stabilized against self-heating. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Chloroble M, Dithane M 22, Kypman 80, Manebgan, Manesan, Manzate, Polyram M, Rhodianebe, Sopranebe and Trimangol are trade names.
