EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!

  • INHALATION

  • Ventilation (not if powder).
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.
    Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Diarrhoea. Vomiting.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
    Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
    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. Separated from food and feedstuffs. Ventilation along the floor.
    Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    WHITE CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride, phosgene.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: ppm; 5 mg/m3 (skin) (ACGIH 1993-1993).


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

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20°C 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 irritates the eyes and the skin.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point (decomposes): 178°C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.74
    Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 25°C: none
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 2.35
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to water organisms and soil organisms.
