FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

In case of fire in the surroundings: use appropriate extinguishing media.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

 •INHALATION Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Sore throat.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.

 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.
First rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION Sore throat.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles. Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
PINK HYGROSCOPIC CRYSTALS.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing sulfur oxides and manganese oxides.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: as Mn 0.2 mg/m as TWA; (ACGIH 2006).
MAK: (as Mn) (Inhalable fraction) 0.5 mg/m;
Pregnancy risk group: C;
(DFG 2005).


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

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

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:


EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the central nervous system.
