Physical State; Appearance
|EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS|
Routes of exposure
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
|TLV: (ceiling value): 0.7 ppm as STEL|
|Reacts violently with fire extinguishing agents such as water or foam.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
