PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
YELLOW CRYSTALLINE POWDER

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance is a strong oxidant and reacts with combustible and reducing materials.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: (as Cr) 0.0005 mg/m as TWA; A2 (suspected human carcinogen); (ACGIH 2008).
MAK: (Inhalable fraction) skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh);
Carcinogen category: 1; Germ cell mutagen group: 2; BAR issued;
(DFG 2009).


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.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is 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. The substance may have effects on the respiratory tract and kidneys , resulting in nasal septum perforation and kidney impairment . This substance is carcinogenic to humans.

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard This substance may be hazardous in the environment; special attention should be given to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment because it persists in the environment.
N O T E S
Do NOT take working clothes home. Deep Lemon Yellow and Strontium Yellow are common names. Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should avoid all further contact. 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.
