TYPES OF HAZARD / EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
Prevent deposition of dust; closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.

EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!

Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
Skin Redness.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
Eyes Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
Ingestion Diarrhoea. Nausea. Vomiting.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!).

MANCOZEB ICSC: 0754
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
GREYISH-YELLOW POWDER

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes slowly on heating or on contact with acids and moisture producing toxic and irritating fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, zinc oxide, manganese oxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbon sulfide, ethylene thiuram sulfide, ethylene bisisothiocyanate, ethylene urea and 2-mercaptoimidazoline.

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:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract, and is mildly irritating to the skin.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. See Notes.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Decomposes below melting point
Relative density (water = 1): 1.92
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: negligible
Flash point: 138C o.c.
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.33
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. 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
Maneb, a related substance, may cause also other effects after long-term exposure. If the substance is formulated with solvent(s) also consult the card(s) (ICSC) of the solvent(s). Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Aimcozeb, Crittox MZ, Dithane 945, Dithane M-45, Fore, Karamate, Mancozin, Manzate 200, Manzin, Nemispor, Penncozeb, Phytox MZ, Riozeb, Vondozeb Plus are trade names.
