EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! STRICT HYGIENE!

 •INHALATION Abdominal pain. Dizziness. Headache. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Cough. Sore throat.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety spectacles, 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 (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.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms irritating and toxic fumesincluding manganese oxides and carbon monoxide. The substance decomposes under the influence of light .

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: as manganese 0.2 mg/m, as TWA; (skin); (ACGIH 2003).
OSHA PEL: C 5 mg/m3
NIOSH REL: TWA 0.2 mg/m3 skin
NIOSH IDLH: N.D. See: IDLH INDEX


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 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 eyes and the skin . The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system , kidneys , liver and lungs , resulting in tissue lesions . Exposure at high levels may result in death. Medical observation is indicated.
