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 when dispersed.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxic effects upon human reproduction.
