CHEMICAL DANGERS:


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 2 ppm; 11 mg/m (skin) (ACGIH 1992-1993).
OSHA PEL: none
NIOSH REL: TWA 2 ppm (10 mg/m3) skin
NIOSH IDLH: N.D. See: IDLH INDEX


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance slightly irritates the eyes and the skin. The substance may cause effects on the blood , resulting in formation of methaemoglobin. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. See Notes.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the blood (see short-term exposure) , resulting in formation of methaemoglobin.
