  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    NO open flames. NO contact with flammables.    Use water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation   Avoid inhalation of dust. Use breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Pain.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.  Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
ODOURLESS COLOURLESS-TO-WHITE GREYISH-WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS. 

Physical dangers
Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic fumes including hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163) and nitrogen oxides. Reacts with strong oxidants. Corrosive to iron and steel.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or 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 kidneys and liver. The substance may have effects on the spleen. This may result in siderosis. This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans. 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 1 mg/m3, - ppm, as TWA.
TLV: (SEN).
A3 (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans) 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. 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.
