DIRECTIONS

USE:

For most effective results apply CUPRICIDE 110 under calm, sunny conditions when water temperature is at

least

15°C.

CUPRIClDE 110 should be diluted 1:10 and spray applied to the water

surface.

Apply in a

manner that will

ensure even distribution

the chemical within the treatment

area. Break up floating algae

mats before spraying or while application is being made.

Spray shore line areas first to avoid trapping fish.

GENERAL

INFORMATION

TREATMENT

NOTES

For planktonic (suspended) algae and free-floating filamentous algae mats,

application rates should be based

upon treating only the upper 50 to 100cm

water where algae is growing. Under heavy infestation treat only

1/2 to 1/3

the water body at

a time to avoid fish suffocation caused by oxygen depletion from decaying

organic matter. Allow 2 weeks for oxygen levels to recover before repeat applications

CUPRICIDE 110.

Fire and

Explosion

Non flammable. Treat as per requirements for Surrounding Fires: Evacuate area and contact emergency services.

Remain upwind and notify those downwind of hazard. Wear full protective equipment including Self Contained

Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) when combating fire. Use waterfog to cool intact containers and nearby storage

areas.

Extinguishing

Non flammable. Prevent contamination of drains or waterways, absorb runoff with sand or similar.

Flammability

Non flammable. May evolve toxic gases (copper & sulfur oxides) when heated to decomposition.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Spillage

If spilt (bulk), wear splash-proof goggles, PVC/rubber gloves, coveralls and rubber boots. Absorb spill with sand or

similar, collect and place in sealable containers for disposal. Prevent spill entering drains or waterways. Caution:

Slippery when spilt.

Handling

Store out of direct sunlight and out of the reach of children, in a cool, dry, well ventilated area, removed from

oxidising agents (eg. hypochlorites), acids (sulphuric acid), heat sources and foodstuffs. Ensure containers are

adequately labelled, protected from physical damage and sealed when not in use. Large storage areas should

have appropriate ventilation systems. Also store removed from active metals.

Storage

Before use carefully read the product label. Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin

contact and inhalation. Observe good personal hygiene, including washing hands before eating. Prohibit eating,

drinking and smoking in contaminated areas.

Material to Avoid

Incompatible with oxidising agents (eg. hypochlorites, peroxides), acids (eg. sulphuric acid), heat and ignition

sources. Also incompatible with active metals (eg. aluminium).

Decomposition

May evolve toxic gases (copper & sulfur oxides) when heated to decomposition.

Health Hazard

Summary

Low toxicity. No adverse health effects are anticipated with normal use. Use safe work practices to avoid eye

contact. Due to low vapour pressure, an inhalation hazard is not anticipated.

Eye

Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, lacrimation, pain and redness.

Inhalation

Low irritant. Over exposure may result in mucous membrane irritation of the nose and throat with coughing.

Skin

Low irritant. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in mild irritation, rash and dermatitis.

Ingestion

Low toxicity. Ingestion may result in nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Ingestion of large quantities

may result in liver, kidney and blood damage.

Toxicity Data

No LD50 data available for this product.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Environment

SOIL: Copper is found in the earth's crust both in its native state and combined into other minerals. BIOLOGICAL:

Positive potential for food chain accumulation. Soluble copper compounds are highly toxic to aquatic and plant life.

Insoluble copper compounds are significantly less environmentally hazardous.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Waste Disposal

For small amounts, cover with moist sand or similar, collect and dispose of to an approved landfill site. Avoid

generating dust. Contact the manufacturer for additional information.

Additional

Information

RESPIRATORS: In general the use of respirators should be limited and engineering controls employed to avoid

exposure. If respiratory equipment must be worn ensure correct respirator selection and training is undertaken.

Remember that some respirators may be extremely uncomfortable when used for long periods. The use of air

powered or air supplied respirators should be considered where prolonged or repeated use is necessary.

SYNERGISM - ANTAGONISM: Ingredients in this product may act together to aggravate or reduce adverse

effects. Accordingly the time weighted average concentration (TWA) provided for single ingredients should be
