TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.  Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust.   
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!   
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Diarrhoea. Nausea. Vomiting.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT wash away into sewer.  Airtight.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
Marine pollutant. 
EC Classification

UN Classification
UN Hazard Class: 4.2; UN Subsidiary Risks: 4.3; UN Pack Group: III 
GHS Classification
 

EMERGENCY RESPONSE SAFE STORAGE
Transport Emergency Card: TEC (R)-42S2210.  Provision to contain effluent from fire extinguishing. Separated from acids and food and feedstuffs. Dry. Keep in a well-ventilated room. 

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
GREYISH-YELLOW POWDER. 

Physical dangers
Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on contact with acids and moisture. This produces toxic and irritating fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, zinc oxide, manganese oxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbon sulfide, ethylene thiuram sulfide, ethylene bisisothiocyanate, ethylene urea and 2-mercaptoimidazoline. 

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 when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. The substance is mildly irritating to the skin. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. See Notes. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Decomposes
Relative density (water = 1): 1.92
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure at 20°C: negligible
Flash point: 138°C o.c.
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.33  
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal. 

NOTES
Maneb, a related substance, may cause also other effects after long-term exposure.
If the substance is formulated with solvent(s) also consult the card(s) (ICSC) of the solvent(s).
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
