DIALLYL PHTHALATE ICSC: 0430
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS VISCOUS LIQUID.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance will polymerize if not inhibited due to heating or in the presence of a catalyst. On combustion, forms toxic gases of carbon monoxide. Reacts with strong oxidants, bases, acids.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: IIb (not established but data is available)
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the skin. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the liver, resulting in tissue lesions.
