TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Highly flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. ;
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking. NO contact with oxidants and acid(s). ;
Powder, alcohol-resistant foam, water in large amounts, carbon dioxide .
EXPLOSION Vapour/air mixtures are explosive. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with oxidants.
Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Do NOT use compressed air for filling, discharging, or handling. Use non-sparking handtools.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS FUMING AND HYGROSCOPIC LIQUID , WITH PUNGENT ODOUR. TURNS YELLOW ON EXPOSURE TO AIR. ACTERISTIC ODOUR. - deselected by chem. group;

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides. The substance is a strong reducing agent and reacts violently with oxidants. The substance is a strong base, it reacts violently with acid and is corrosive. Reacts with oxygen causing fire and explosion hazard. Attacks plastic. , Changed from On combustion, forms toxic and/or flammable fumes including nitrogen oxides, hydrogen, ammonia, dimethylamine and hydrazoic acid. at update 2007.; 13363000

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.01 ppm; as TWA; (skin); A3 (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans); (ACGIH 2008).
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh);
Carcinogen category: 2;
(DFG 2008).
OSHA PEL: TWA 0.5 ppm (1 mg/m3) skin
NIOSH REL: Ca C 0.06 ppm (0.15 mg/m3) 2-hr See Appendix A
NIOSH IDLH: Ca 15 ppm See: 57147


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached very quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes , the skin and the respiratory tract . Inhalation of the vapour may cause lung oedema (see Notes). The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system and liver . ingle TOST cat 1lung); 13751000 mulations (tremors and convulsions) may occur), Added at update 2007.; tory distress without lower respiratory tract irritation has been seen in exposed humans);

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the blood , resulting in anaemia . This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans. enicity

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised that this substance does not enter the environment.
N O T E S
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. 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 a person authorized by him/her, should be considered. The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient. Do NOT take working clothes home. Rinse contaminated clothes with plenty of water because of fire hazard.
