TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Water spray, powder.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE!

 •INHALATION Cough.
Avoid inhalation of fine dust and mist. Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
 •EYES Redness.
Face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.
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. Wash hands before eating.
Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. (Extra personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus).
Separated from strong bases, strong acids, food and feedstuffs. Well closed. Keep in a well-ventilated room.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
Severe marine pollutant.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS OR WHITE CRYSTALS , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes of hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides, phosphorous oxides and sulfur oxides.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol, 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 on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance irritates the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. Weak cholinesterase inhibitor. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Melting point: 47.5-48C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.39
Solubility in water, g/100 ml: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at C: negligible
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 4.3
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use.
N O T E S
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Do NOT take working clothes home. Rubitox, Zolone, Azofene are trade names.
