Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is mildly irritating to the eyes. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
The substance may have effects on the kidneys and liver. This may result in tissue lesions. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Decomposes at 173°C
Melting point: 112-123°C
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure at 20°C: negligible
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 4  
The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to bees. 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.
