HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!   
Inhalation   Use local exhaust.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes   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. Refer for medical attention .

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
OFF-WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides. Reacts with bases. This produces dichlorobenil. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 151-152°C
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 21°C: 0.095
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20°C: <0.1  
This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to fish. 

NOTES
Dichlobenil is a major metabolite of chlorthiamid.
