|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF (PREGNANT) WOMEN!|
|Inhalation||Cough. Headache. Nausea. Sore throat. Vomiting.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain. Blisters.||Protective gloves.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Abdominal pain. Diarrhoea. Sore throat. Vomiting. Burning sensation in the stomach. Further see Inhalation.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Rest. Refer for medical attention .|

|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in crustacea. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
Melting point established under the absence of oxygen.
Density differs with crystalline structure.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
The recommendations on this card do not apply to vapour exposure during the production.
The technical product may contain impurities which alter the health effects; for further information see ICSC 0013 Arsenic.
UN regulation: the special provision SP45 is applicable to the UN number 1549 (Hazard class 6.1 and packaging group III).
It means that antimony sulfides and oxides which contain not more than 0.5 % of arsenic calculated on the total weight are not subject to these regulations.
Card has been partly updated in October 2005.
