EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour, through the skin and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is corrosive to the eyes and skin. The vapour is irritating to the respiratory tract. Exposure at high levels could cause unconsciousness.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly 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.
