PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS TO YELLOW HYGROSCOPIC , VISCOUS LIQUID .

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic fumes including ammonia , nitrogen oxides . The substance is a strong base, it reacts violently with acid and is corrosive. Reacts with oxidants and chlorinated hydrocarbons. pH is 11.8

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


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
Serious local effects by all routes of exposure.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air 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 corrosive to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. Corrosive on ingestion. Inhalation of mist may cause severe swelling of the throat.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
