PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. The substance polymerize under the influence of acid(s) , base(s) and amines . Reacts violently with strong oxidants causing fire and explosion hazard.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.1 ppm as TWA; (skin); A3 (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans); SEN; (ACGIH 2005).
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh);
Carcinogen category: 2;
(DFG 2005).
OSHA PEL: TWA 10 ppm (60 mg/m3)
NIOSH REL: Ca C 1 ppm (6 mg/m3) 15-minute See Appendix A
NIOSH IDLH: Ca 100 ppm See: 122601


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

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. This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans.
