TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE      
Inhalation   Avoid inhalation of dust and mist.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and particulates adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.  Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
CLEAR LIQUID OR COLOURLESS CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes above 200°C . This produces toxic and corrosive gases including hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides. Attacks many metals. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
