TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.  Use water spray, powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION   Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).   
 
EXPOSURE      
Inhalation   Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  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. Refer for medical attention .

TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body 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
The substance is mildly irritating to the eyes. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Boiling point: 370°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.3
Solubility in water: none
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 4.3  
This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given 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
The substance is combustible but no flash point is available in literature.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Garlon, Turflon are trade names.
