  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION 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.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough.  Use local exhaust.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin No acute symptoms expected.  Protective gloves.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion No acute symptoms expected.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
 

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use. 

NOTES
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.
