TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable.  NO open flames.  Use powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!  IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation Abdominal cramps. Convulsions. Dizziness. Sweating. Nausea. Unconciousness. Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! See Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Further see Inhalation.  Wear face shield 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 See Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer for medical attention .

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
On combustion, forms toxic and corrosive gases. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (inhalable vapor and aerosol): 0.05mg/m³ as TWA; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); BEI issued; (ACGIH 2007). 

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

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 short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. This may result in convulsions and respiratory failure. Cholinesterase inhibition. Exposure could cause death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 49.2°C
Density: 1.15 g/cm³
Solubility in water, g/100ml: 0.03
Vapour pressure, Pa at 30°C: <1
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.3  
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
If the substance is formulated with solvent(s) also consult the card(s) (ICSC) of the solvent(s).
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Bayer 68138, Bay SRA 3886, ENT 27572, Nemacur, Nemacur P, and NSC 195106 are trade names.
