FENVALERATE (Technical product) ICSC: 0273
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
YELLOW OR BROWN VISCOUS LIQUID

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating between 150-300C producing toxic fumes including hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride. Reacts with strong bases and strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established. MAK not established.
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Decomposes below boiling point
Relative density (water = 1): 1.2
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: negligible
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 4.4-6.2
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous in the environment; special attention should be given to honey bees. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be given to avoid any additional release, e.g. through inappropriate disposal.
NOTES
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials. Do NOT take working clothes home. Sumicidin, Pydrin, Belmark are trade names. See also ICSC1516 Esfenvalerate.
