TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!  IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation Abdominal pain. Diarrhoea. Headache. Sweating. Nausea. Shortness of breath. Vomiting. Weakness.  Use local exhaust.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. See Notes. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! See Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety goggles or face shield.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion See Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention . See Notes. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS CRYSTALLINE POWDER. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides. Reacts slowly with water. This produces harmful Dinoseb. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the metabolism. This may result in high body temperature and sweating. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 66-67°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.2
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 60°C: 0.013  
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. 

NOTES
Binapacryl is the dimethyl acrylic ester of harmful Dinoseb.
It is metabolized to form Dinoseb.
Toxicity is attributed to Dinoseb.
Use all available methods for reducing body temperature.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Acricid, Ambox, Endosan, Morocide, Niagara 9044 are trade names.
Also consult ICSC 0149 (Dinoseb) and ICSC 0882 (Dinoseb acetate).
Card has been partly updated in October 2004.
