EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID EXPOSURE OF (PREGNANT) WOMEN!

  • INHALATION

  • Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN

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

  • Face shield.
    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.
    Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    WHITE TO PALE GREEN CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


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

    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 on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.




    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The substance may have effects on the thyroid and liver , resulting in impaired functions. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes malformations in human babies.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 203-204C
    Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 30C: 2 (moderate)
    Flash point: 252C
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: -0.66 (calculated)
