  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.        In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT! AVOID EXPOSURE OF BREASTFEEDING WOMEN! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. See Ingestion.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin No acute symptoms expected.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes No acute symptoms expected.  Wear safety spectacles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the gastrointestinal tract and nervous system. 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
The substance may have effects on the gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, kidneys, liver and blood. This substance is carcinogenic to humans. May cause toxicity to human reproduction or development. 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 0.01 mg/m3, - ppm, as TWA; A1 (confirmed human carcinogen); BEI issued.
MAK: skin absorption (H); carcinogen category: 1; germ cell mutagen group: 3A 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to birds. 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
Do NOT take working clothes home.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
