TYPES OF HAZARD
/ EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable.  NO open flames.  Use foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION     In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!   
Inhalation   Use ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety goggles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

Chemical dangers
 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 

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 is mildly irritating to the eyes and skin. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Solubility in water: none  The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use. 

NOTES
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
See ICSC 0229 (Bioresmethrin), 0324 (Resmethrin).
