TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.     
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!   
Inhalation Sweet taste in the mouth. Dizziness. Drowsiness. Headache.  Avoid inhalation of fine dust and mist.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED!  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell. 
Eyes   Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion Nausea. Vomiting.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.  Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163) and nitrogen oxides. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK (not established):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. This may result in impaired functions. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. The substance may have effects on the bladder and kidneys. This may result in urinary tract inflammation.
