|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
|Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated adequately.|
|Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 55°C.
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.
Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
