TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. 
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.     
 
EXPOSURE   STRICT HYGIENE!   
Inhalation   Use ventilation.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes   Wear safety spectacles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT wash away into sewer.  Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including nitrogen oxides, hydrogen fluoride (see ICSC 0283) and hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation 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
 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the liver and blood. This may result in liver impairment and a decrease in haemoglobin. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 63°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.4
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 20°C: 1.25 (moderate)

The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use. 

NOTES
Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
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.
The relation between odour and the occupational exposure limit cannot be indicated.
Condor, Duo Top, Procure, Terraguard, Trifmine are trade names.
