EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!

  • INHALATION
  • (see Ingestion).
    Ventilation (not if powder).
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • MAY BE ABSORBED! Transient skin flushing (Further see Inhalation).
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES

  • Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Slow heart beat. Low blood pressure. Sedation. Low body temperature.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
    Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into 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.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


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

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

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The substance may have effects on the central nervous system and liver.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 86C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.1
    Solubility in water: none
    Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: very low
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to fish.
    N O T E S
    If the pesticide is present under the form of a formulation containing hydrocarbon solvents, vomiting may not be induced. Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. If the pesticide is formulated with an organic solvent, also consult ICSC of the solvent used. Acarac, Acadrex, Azodieno, Baam, Bumetran, Danicut, Ectodex, Edrizar, Istambul, Maitac, Mitac, Ovasyn, Taktic, Triatix, Triatox, Topline and Tudy are trade names.
