EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol, through the skin and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.
This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to fish. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in fish.
