EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION

  • Local exhaust or breathing protection.

  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves.

  • EYES

  • Safety spectacles, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.

  • INGESTION

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.

    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment (extra personal protection: P3 filter respirator for toxic particles).
    Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases, aluminium, iron, zinc; food and feedstuffs.
    Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
    UN Hazard Class: 6.1

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:
    The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.

    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    On contact with hot surfaces or flames this substance decomposes forming toxic and corrosive fumes of nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chlorides (see ICSC 0163). Reacts with strong oxidants and bases. Attacks metals such as iron, zinc and aluminium.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    See Notes.

    INHALATION RISK:


    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:


    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point: 257-258C
    Melting point: 61C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.7
    Solubility in water: none
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 6.6
    Flash point: 123C
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms.
    N O T E S
    Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
