EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Dizziness. Drowsiness.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain.
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
Eyes Redness. Pain. Blurred vision.
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 Abdominal pain. (Further see Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Give plenty of water to drink. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL PACKAGING & LABELLING

TRIPHENYLTIN HYDROXIDE ICSC: 1283
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE CRYSTALLINE POWDER

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: (as tin, organic compounds) 0.1 mg/m as TWA; 0.2 mg/m as STEL; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); (ACGIH 2005).
MAK: Tin compounds, organic (as Sn), 0.1 mg/m (Inhalable fraction); Peak limitation category: II (2); skin absorption (H); Pregnancy risk group: D; (DFG 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is severely irritating to the eyes and is irritating to the skin and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the immune system, resulting in impaired functions. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Melting point: 118C
Density: 1.54 g/cm
Solubility in water, g/100 ml: 0.0001 (very poor)
Flash point: 400C
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.66
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur along the food chain, for example in fish and in molluscs. 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
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Do NOT take working clothes home. Card has been partly updated in October 2005. See section EU classification.
