|PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION|
Physical State; Appearance
Formula: C7H5ClO / C6H5COCl
|EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS|
Routes of exposure
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
TLV: (ceiling value): 0.5 ppm as STEL.
MAK: skin absorption (H); carcinogen category: 1
|The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms.|
|Reacts violently with fire extinguishing agents such as water.
The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
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.
