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.  Use water, foam, carbon dioxide, powder. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!   
Inhalation Burning sensation. Cough. Dizziness. Headache. Nausea.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Burning sensation. Numbness. Tingling sensation. Itching.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Abdominal pain. Nausea. Vomiting. Dizziness. Headache. Convulsions.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention .

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
YELLOW OR BROWN VISCOUS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating between 150 and 300°C. This produces toxic fumes including hydrogen cyanide (see ICSC 0492) and hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). Reacts with strong bases and strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Decomposes
Relative density (water = 1): 1.2
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure at 20°C: negligible
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 4.4/6.2  
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to bees. 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
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Sumicidin, Pydrin, Belmark are trade names.
