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

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID EXPOSURE OF (PREGNANT) WOMEN! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Nausea. Vomiting. Abdominal pain. Headache. Convulsions.  Use ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. See Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Pain. Redness.  Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.  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.  Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention .

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes and skin. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. This may result in convulsions and respiratory failure. Exposure at high concentrations could cause death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

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
Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxic effects upon human reproduction. 


Occupational exposure limits
 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. 

NOTES
The substance is combustible but no flash point is available in literature.
