  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible under specific conditions. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    NO open flames.    Use water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation   Use ventilation (not if powder).  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  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.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

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

Inhalation risk
A nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

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


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to bees. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur along the food chain, for example in fish. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. 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. 

NOTES
Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
