EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN!

Inhalation Dizziness. Headache. Nausea.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
Skin Redness.

IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID, WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating or on burning producing toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides and sulfur 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:
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Boiling point: 232C
Relative density (water = 1): 0.95
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 25C: 4.5
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 6.5
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1.00
Flash point: 116C o.c.
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.20
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
The substance is harmful 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
If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. The relation between odour and the occupational exposure limit cannot be indicated. Alirox, Eptam, Eradicane, Genep, Niptan, Witox are trade names. Card has been partly updated in October 2005. See section Emergency Response.
