EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF (PREGNANT) WOMEN! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
 •INHALATION Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Sweating. Nausea. Dizziness. Laboured breathing. Convulsions. Unconsciousness.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. (Further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES
Face shield 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 Abdominal cramps. Diarrhoea. Vomiting. (Further see Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING

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

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes producing toxic fumes including phosphorus oxides , phosgene and chlorine fumes . Attacks metal,plasticandrubber.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
OSHA PEL: TWA 1 mg/m3 skin
NIOSH REL: TWA 1 mg/m3 skin
NIOSH IDLH: 100 mg/m3 See: 62737
TLV: 0.1 ppm as TWA; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); BEI issued; SEN; (ACGIH 2004).
MAK: 0.11 ppm, 1 mg/m; skin absorption (H);
Peak limitation category: II(2); Pregnancy risk group: C;
(DFG 2004).


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C ; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the skin . The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. Cholinesterase inhibitor. Exposure above the OEL may result in death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Cholinesterase inhibitor; cumulative effect is possible: see acute hazards/symptoms. This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans.

N O T E S
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Do NOT take working clothes home. Do NOT use in the vicinity of a fire or a hot surface, or during welding. Dedevap, Nogas, Nuvan, Phosvit, Vapona, Bay19149 are trade names. Also consult publication Environmental Health Criteria No. 79, Health Safety Guide No. 18. Card has been partly updated in October 2004 and 2005.
