IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE CRYSTALS.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating or on burning producing toxic and corrosive fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride (see ICSC0163).

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

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 is irritating to the eyes.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Tumours have been detected in experimental animals but may not be relevant to humans (see Notes).
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Melting point: 177C
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: <0.0013
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 2.85
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
This substance may be hazardous in the environment; special attention should be given to fish.
NOTES
If the pesticide is present under the form of a formulation containing hydrocarbon solvents, vomiting may not be induced. 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. Acryptan, Folpan, Folpel, Phaltan, Phaltane, Thiophal, Vinicoll are trade names.
Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See section EU classification.
