EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Shortness of breath.
    Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration if indicated.
  • SKIN
  • Redness.
    Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain. Temporary loss of vision.
    Safety goggles.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    ODOURLESS , GRANULES OR CRYSTALLINE POWDER.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    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 and by ingestion.

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

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

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Decomposes below boiling point at 500C
    Melting point: 100C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.97
    Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 20C: 54
