EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN Redness.
Protective gloves.

 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles.
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.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
ODOURLESS WHITE OR COLOURLESS CRYSTALS.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic and corrosive fumes of nitrogen oxides and chlorine (see ICSC 0126). Solutions are corrosive to aluminum, iron and tin.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.


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

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly.

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

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Melting point: 151-152C
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 20C: poor
Vapour pressure, Pa at 25C: 0.002
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use.
N O T E S
Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. Lontrel and Matrigon are trade names.
