EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes. The substance may cause effects on the red blood cells. This may result in lesions of blood cells and the formation of methaemoglobin. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the spleen. Tumours have been detected in experimental animals but may not be relevant to humans. See Notes. 


Occupational exposure limits
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (SH); carcinogen category: 2 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
