TYPES OF
HAZARD/
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS/
SYMPTOMS
PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air. Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.
Prevent deposition of dust; closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.

EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Sore throat.
    Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES

  • Safety spectacles 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. Wash hands before eating.
    Rinse mouth.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles).
    Provision to contain effluent from fire extinguishing. Separated from acids, food and feedstuffs. Dry. Keep in a well-ventilated room.
    Airtight. Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    GREYISH-YELLOW POWDER.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:
    Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air.

    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating or on burning producing toxic and irritating fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, zinc oxide, manganese oxide.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and through the skin.

    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 aerosol irritates the respiratory tract.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Decomposes below melting point: ca. 150C
    Solubility in water: none
    Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: negligible
    Flash point: 138C o.c.
    Auto-ignition temperature: see notesC
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to water organisms.
    N O T E S
    If the substance is formulated with solvent(s) also consult the card(s) (ICSC) of the solvent(s). Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Aimcozeb, Crittox MZ, Dithane 945, Dithane M-45, Fore, Karamate, Mancozin, Manzate 200, Manzin, Nemispor, Penncozeb, Phytox MZ, Riozeb, Vondozeb Plus, 2-Mercaptoimidazoline are trade names. Also consult ICSC # 1148, 2-Mercaptoimidazoline, a trace contaminant and breakdown product.
