NO open flames.
Water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!

Inhalation
Ventilation (not if powder).
Fresh air, rest.
Skin
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
Eyes Redness. Pain.
Safety spectacles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
Ingestion
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Rinse mouth. Rest.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL PACKAGING & LABELLING
Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. Personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
ODOURLESS ORANGE CRYSTALS.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating or on burning producing toxic and corrosive fumes including nitrogen oxides, hydrogen fluoride.

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

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 irritates the eyes.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Boiling point at 0.5 kPa: 139-140C
Melting point: 49C
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 25C: 0.014
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 5.07
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to aquatic organisms, honey bees. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur along the food chain, for example in fish. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment.
NOTES
Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Agreflan, Agriflan 24, Crisalin, Digermin, Elancolan, Nitran, Olitref, Treflanocide, Treficon, Treflam, Treflan, Trifurex are trade names. Card has been partly updated in October 2005.
