Avoid contact with eyes – may cause eye irritation. Avoid prolonged/repeated contact withthe skin – may cause skin irritation.Avoid releases to lakes or streams -toxic to aquatic organisms.
|Section 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION Cont.
3.1 POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS (if product not handled in the recommended manner)EYE: Contact with the eyes may cause slight (temporary) eye irritation. Corneal injury is unlikely.SKIN CONTACT: Contact with product -repeated/prolonged skin contact may cause slight skin irritation.SKIN ABSORPTION: Absorption is unlikely to occur.INGESTION: Single oral dose toxicity is low. Ingestion of product may cause irritation of the gastrointestinal
tract possibly resulting in upset stomach, vomiting and/or diarrhea. INHALATION: Inhalation of product vapors (low) is not considered to be hazardous CHRONIC EFFECTS/CARCINOGENICITY: Not listed as a carcinogen by NTP, IARC or OSHA. See
Section 11, Toxicological Information
|Section 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
4.1 EYES: Immediately flush with large quantities of water for 15 minutes. Hold eyelids apart during irrigation to insure thorough flushing of the entire area of the eye and lids. Obtain immediate medical attention. Continue flushing if medical help not immediately available.
4.2 SKIN: Immediately flush with large quantities of water for 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing under a safety shower. Do not neutralize with chemical agents. Obtain medical attention if irritation occurs.
4.3 INGESTION: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give 1 or 2 glasses of water. If vomiting does occur, repeat fluid administration. If unconscious or convulsing, do not give fluids. Obtain immediate medical attention.
4.4 INHALATION: Remove victim from contaminated atmosphere. If breathing is labored, administer oxygen. If breathing has ceased, clear airway and start mouth to mouth resuscitation. If heart has stopped beating, external heart massage should be applied. Obtain immediate medical attention.
|Section 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
5.1 FLAMMABLE PROPERTIES FLASH POINT: 200°F (93.3°C) METHOD USED: SCC
5.2 FLAMMABLE LIMITS Not determined
5.3 EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Product is water based and will not burn. Use extinguishing media as appropriate for combustibles involved in fire.
5.4 FIRE & EXPLOSIVE HAZARDS: Product will not burn unless sufficient water is evaporated. At this point, product will exhibit flammability characteristics of organic portion of the formulation. Wear self contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Product will evolve toxic fumes (NOx, F –, Cl –) if heated to decomposition.
|Section 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES, Cont.
Keep containers/storage vessels in fire area cooled with water spray.
- FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, pressure demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent) and full protective gear.
- Small releases: Do not wash small spills away. Instead, sprinkle the spill with sawdust, Sorbal or kitty litter to soak up spilled material then shovel up the absorbed material into a suitable container for disposal. Dispose as directed by the pesticide product label.
|Section 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
- Large releases: Cordon off area of spillage and dike area with dirt, sand or other inert material to prevent any further migration. Recover as much of usable product for application (best disposal practice). Handle remaining material as a small spill above.
- Handling: Keep out of reach of children. Use only in a well ventilated area. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with the skin and eyes. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Wash exposed clothing before reuse.
