    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS TO YELLOW SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating and on burning producing toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride, phosgene). Reacts with strong oxidants causing fire and explosion hazard.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: ppm; 5 mg/m3 (as TWA) (skin) (ACGIH 1991-1992).


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

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

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The substance may have effects on the liver , resulting in liver impairment.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point: 304 to 354C
    Melting point: 93C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.58
    Solubility in water: None
    Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: <133
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 8
    Flash point: 200 (o.c.)C
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    Not biodegradable. This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to water and soils. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment because it persists in the environment.
    NOTES
    The symptoms of chloracne do not become manifest until some hours or days have passed. Do NOT take working clothes home. Halowax, Nibren wax and seekay wax are trade names.
