TYPES OF HAZARD / EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion if formulations contain flammable/explosive solvents.


EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
Inhalation Dizziness. Sweating. Laboured breathing. Unconsciousness. Vomiting. Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation.
Ventilation (not if powder). Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! (Further see Inhalation).
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention. (See Notes).
Eyes
Face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
Ingestion Abdominal cramps. Diarrhoea. Nausea. Vomiting. (Further see Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Rest. Refer for medical attention. See Notes.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL PACKAGING & LABELLING

AMINOCARB ICSC: 0097
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE CRYSTALS.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes and irritating fumes including nitrogen oxides.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance may cause effects on the nervous system, resulting in convulsions, respiratory failure. Cholinesterase inhibitor. Exposure may result in death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the nervous system, liver.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Melting point: 93C
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 20C: 0.09
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: 0.0023
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 7.18
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.73
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to mammals, birds, honey bees, water organisms.
NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Do NOT take working clothes home. Bayer 44646, Metacil, Matacil, Mitacil are trade names. If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials.
Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification.
