    CHEMICAL DANGERS:


    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


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

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed.
