|Occupational exposure limits|
|This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to aquatic organisms.|
|Marketed only as aqueous solution.
Solidification point for 60-70% solution: solidifies at about 19°C, forming a crystalline dihydrate.
Melting point for 35% solution: <-30°C.
Relative density for a 61% solution is 1.46 and for 35% solution is 1.38.
Vapour pressure for a 35% solution is about 3 kPa.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Temperature of decomposition is unknown in the literature.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
