TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE

ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS

PREVENTION

FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING

FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames. NO contact with water.
Carbon dioxide, dry powder. NO hydrous agents. NO water.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN Redness.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
YELLOW POWDER OR CRYSTALS

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on contact with acids and moisture producing toxic and flammable gases including hydrogen sulfide and carbon disulfide.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: Sh; (DFG 2003).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes , the skin and the respiratory tract .

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the kidneys and central nervous system , resulting in kidney impairment and neurologic, neuropsychiatric disorders (manganism).

PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES

Decomposes below melting point at 192-204°C
Density: 1.92
g/cm3
Solubility in water: very poor

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be given to avoid any additional release, e.g. through inappropriate disposal.

N O T E S

UN number 2968: Haz class 4.3; Pack Group III; Maneb stabilized against self-heating. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
