EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure
Inhalation risk Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure The substance may have effects on the liver. This may result in liver impairment.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in fish.
Health effects of exposure to the substance have not been investigated adequately.
