PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating or on burning producing toxic fumes including hydrogen chloride (see ICSC0163) . Reacts with strong oxidants. Attacks powdered metals and plastic.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: skin absorption (H);
Carcinogen category: 2
(DFG 2008).


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 can be reached very quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract, is mildly irritating to the skin . The substance may cause effects on the liver. (severe irrt to the mucos membranes, severe irrit of throat and stomach); gnificantly smalle, very slight irrit, mild irrit); rit cat 2A, skin irrit cat 3, resp tract irrit cat 3; ,52 (In the section of single exposure in human, the men (after spending 3 hr cleaning a chemical tank) became comatose and died from liver failure

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the liver and kidneys . This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans. nogenicity 2),43,44,46,50, EU carcinogenicity cat 2, but no evaluation in IARC, It is not possible to exclude a genotoxic mechanism for the induction of the tumors of rat tongue
