EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION
Avoid inhalation of dust .
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.

First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Dizziness. Drowsiness. Tremors. Uncoordinated movements.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!).

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS CRYSTALS OR BEIGE POWDER .

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms toxic gases. The substance decomposes on heating.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK not established.


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

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance may cause effects on the nervous system.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
