EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans. 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. 

NOTES
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
