Toxicological Properties Routes of Entry: Eye contact, skin contact, inhalation Toxicity for Animals: Acute oral toxicity (LD50): 2650 mg/kg (Rat) Chronic Effects on Humans: Carcinogenic Effect: N/A Mutagenic Effects: N/A Teratogenic Effects: N/A Developmental Toxicity: N/A The substance is toxic to skin, eyes. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organ damage. Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in one or many human organs. Acute Effects on Humans Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of inhalation. Severe over exposure can result in death. Inhalation: Dust may cause irritation of the respiratory tract Ingestion: May cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea Eyes: Cause mild to moderate irritation Skin: Irritant, possibly severe Section V. Preventive Measures Waste Information: N/A Waste Stream: N/A Storage: Keep container dry. Keep in cool place. Ground all equipment containing material. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a cool, well ventilated place. Highly toxic or infectious materials should be stored in a separate locked safety storage cabinet or room. Precautions: Keep locked up. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. DO NOT ingest. DO NOT breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. If ingested seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Keep away from incompatibles such as oxidizing agents, acids. Small Spill and Leak: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose according to local and regional authority requirements. Large Spill and Leak: Our database contains no additional information in case of a spill and/or leak of the product. Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements. Protective Clothing: Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator.
