EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!

 •INHALATION See Ingestion.
Ventilation (not if powder).
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Transient skin flushing. (Further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES
Safety spectacles .
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Slow heart beat. Low blood pressure. Sedation. Low body temperature.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to fish.

N O T E S

If the pesticide is present under the form of a formulation containing hydrocarbon solvents, vomiting may not be induced. Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials. Acarac, Acadrex, Azodieno, Baam, Bumetran, Danicut, Ectodex, Edrizar, Istambul, Maitac, Mitac, Ovasyn, Taktic, Triatix, Triatox, Topline and Tudy are trade names. Card has been partly updated in October 2005. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification.
