EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.
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. If this liquid is swallowed, aspiration into the lungs may result in chemical pneumonitis.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
EU-OEL: 100 mg/m3, 20 ppm as TWA. MAK: 100 mg/m3, 20 ppm; peak limitation category: II(2); pregnancy risk group: C
Use of alcoholic beverages enhances the harmful effect. See ICSCs 1155 and 1389.
