Routes of exposure
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.|
|The substance decomposes in water producing hypochloric acid and cyanuric acid.
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.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
