EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Exposure to sun may enhance the irritating effect of this substance. This may result in burns.
Inhalation risk Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed and when heated.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis and hyperpigmentation of skin. This substance is carcinogenic to humans.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 0.2 mg/m3, as TWA; A1 (confirmed human carcinogen)
This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to soil contamination and aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
