TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Water spray , alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , powder .
EXPLOSION

In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
 •INHALATION Sore throat. Burning sensation. Cough. Tremor. Loss of movement co-ordination. Convulsions. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Wheezing. Symptoms may be delayed (see Notes).
Closed system.
Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. No mouth-to-mouth artificial respiration. Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain. Blisters. These may be delayed. (Further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Wear protective gloves when administering first aid. Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •EYES VAPOUR WILL BE ABSORBED! Causes watering of the eyes. Redness. Pain. Spasms, photophobia and dilated pupils . Blurred vision. Severe deep burns. Loss of vision.
Safety goggles . Face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.
 •INGESTION Sore throat. Abdominal pain. Burning sensation in the throat and chest. Nausea. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. (Further see Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer immediately for medical attention. See Notes.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Evacuate danger area immediately! Consult an expert! Gas-tight chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus. Collect leaking liquid in sealable air tight containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. NEVER direct water jet on liquid. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.
Keep in the dark. Separated from food and feedstuffs and metals . Keep in a well-ventilated room. Store in an area without drain or sewer access.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance will polymerize under the influence of heat and light . Attacks many metals forming flammable/explosive gas (hydrogen - see ICSC 0001).

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


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour, by inhalation of its aerosol, through the skin, and by ingestion . Serious local effects and systemic effects by all routes of exposure .

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
Blistering agent. Lachrymation. The substance is severely irritating to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract . The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system and bone marrow . Inhalation of the substance may cause lung oedema (see Notes). The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the bone marrow and central nervous system . This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans. May cause heritable genetic damage to human germ cells. See Notes.

DATA
Environmental Hazard placard No data available.
N O T E S
Do NOT take working clothes home. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation is therefore essential. Because many of the effects resemble those of ionizing radiation, the term radiomimetic is frequently used.
