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

Inhalation risk
A nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly 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
