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, skin and respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. This may result in impaired functions.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20°C.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure The substance defats the skin, which may cause dryness or cracking. The substance may have effects on the central nervous system. This may result in impaired functions.
The relation between odour and the occupational exposure limit cannot be indicated.
