Acute toxicity: Propyzamide: Oral LD

rats♂8350,♀5620, dogs > 10,000 mg/kg.

Percutaneous LD

rabbits> 3160 mg/kg.

Inhalation LC

rats > 5mg/L.

Chronic toxicity: Prolonged or repeated overexposure toethylene glycolvapours maycause liver

orkidney damage. Crystalline silica is listedbythe National ToxicologyProgram(NTP) as a reasonably

anticipated cancer-causing agent andbythe International Agency forResearch on Cancer (IARC) as a

known cancer causing agent.

Prolonged or repeated overexposure to silica can cause silicosis, a pneumoconiosis which causes scar

tissue.

Possible routes of exposure: Inhalation of drydust, or of spraymistare the mostlikelycauses of exposure.

Range of effects. Excessive exposure mayaffecthuman healthas follows:

Skincontact: Possible irritation.

Eye contact: Possible irritation.

Delayed effects if any:

Relevantnegative data: Notknown tobe carcinogenic, mutagenic, or teratogenic.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Ecotoxicity:

Aquaticorganisms: Fish – Acute II (LC

> 1 – 10≤mg/L).

Crustacea – Acute II (LC

> 1 – 10≤mg/L).

Algae, Plants – No data.

Flora: Toxic to Poaceae and someother species.

Fauna: Relativelynon-toxic.

Soil organisms: Not toxic toearthworms.

Bees: Nottoxic.

Long term: No data. Notexpected tobe a problem.

Ozone effects: None recorded.

Persistence/degradation: Moderate. Degrades insoil witha half life measuredinmonthsrather than

weeks or years.

Mobility: Not particularly mobile. Although itis persistent, solubility is only 15 ppm.

Bioaccumulative potential: Unknown but probably low. Poorly absorbed fromthe gastrointestinal tract of

rats and cows; metabolized by side-chainoxidation and excreted in urine and faeces.

13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Product: Whenever possible, productshould be used for itsintended purpose, even if

reclaimed fromspillage (reclaimedproduct must be uncontaminated).
