PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
May explode on heating above 130°C (anhydrous). The substance decomposes slowly under the influence of air producing chlorine (trihydrate). The substance decomposes on heating or on contact with acids producing toxic gases .

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK not established.


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is severely 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. Repeated or prolonged inhalation exposure may cause asthma.

Density: 1.4 g/cm³ (trihydrate)
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 25°C: 15 (good) (trihydrate)
Flash point: 192°C c.c. (trihydrate)
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.84 (estimated)
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment.
N O T E S
Do NOT take working clothes home. The symptoms of asthma 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. Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should avoid all further contact with this substance. The recommendations on this Card also apply to Chloramine-T trihydrate (CAS 7080-50-4).
