PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE CRYSTALS OR POWDER.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On heating, toxic fumes are formed. Reacts with strong oxidants to produce toxic fumes.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: (as As) 0.01 mg/m³; A1 (confirmed human carcinogen); BEI issued; (ACGIH 2010).
MAK:
Carcinogen category: 1; Germ cell mutagen group: 3A;
(DFG 2009).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially, if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the gastrointestinal tract , resulting in severe gastroenteritis, loss of fluid and electrolytes, cardiac disorders and shock . Exposure far above the OEL may result in death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the skin, mucous membranes, peripheral nervous system , bone marrow and liver , resulting in pigmentation disorders, hyperkeratosis, perforation of nasal septum, neuropathy, anaemia , liver impairment . This substance is carcinogenic to humans. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development.
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Solubility in water: (none)
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be given to avoid any additional release, e.g. through inappropriate disposal.
