Emergency Overview

Physical Description & Colour

: Light amber coloured liquid.

Odour:

Characteristic hydrocarbon odour.

Major Health Hazards:

Symptoms of high dermal exposure include numbness, tingling, itching, burning sensation,

loss of bladder control, incoordination, seizures, and possible death. Pyrethroids like cypermethrin may adversely

affect the central nervous system. Symptoms of high-dose ingestion include nausea, prolonged vomiting, stomach

pains, and diarrhoea which progresses to convulsions, unconsciousness, and coma. Cypermethrin is a slight skin or

eye irritant, and may cause allergic skin reactions and facial skin numbness. Product is harmful if swallowed, eye

irritant, if aspirated, may cause lung damage.

Potential Health Effects

Inhalation:

Short Term Exposure:

Available data indicates that this product is not harmful. However product may be mildly

irritating, although unlikely to cause anything more than mild transient discomfort.

Long Term Exposure:

No data for health effects associated with long term inhalation.

Skin Contact:

Short Term Exposure:

This product causes skin numbness but further symptoms are not available. In addition

product may be irritating, but is unlikely to cause anything more than mild transient discomfort.

Long Term Exposure:

No data for health effects associated with long term skin exposure.

Eye Contact:

Short Term Exposure

: This product is an eye irritant. Symptoms may include stinging and reddening of eyes and

watering which may become copious. Other symptoms may also become evident. If exposure is brief, symptoms

should disappear once exposure has ceased. However, lengthy exposure or delayed treatment may cause permanent

damage.

Long Term Exposure

: No data for health effects associated with long term eye exposure.

Ingestion:

Short Term Exposure

: Significant oral exposure is considered to be unlikely. Because of the low viscosity of this

product, it may directly enter the lungs if swallowed, or if subsequently vomited. Once in the lungs, it is very difficult to

remove and can cause severe injury or death. However, this product is an oral irritant. Symptoms may include burning

sensation and reddening of skin in mouth and throat. Other symptoms may also become evident, but all should

disappear once exposure has ceased.

Long Term Exposure

: No data for health effects associated with long term ingestion.

Carcinogen Status:

SWA:

No significant ingredient is classified as carcinogenic by SWA.

NTP:

No significant ingredient is classified as carcinogenic by NTP.

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The SWA TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day

for a 5 day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no

longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures

at the STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicity:

An information profile for Cypermethrin is available at http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/ghindex.html

Acute toxicity: Cypermethrin is a harmful material by dermal absorption or ingestion. The oral LD

for cypermethrin

in rats is 250 mg/kg (in corn oil) or 4123 mg/kg (in water). The oral LD

varies from 367 to 2000 mg/kg in female rats,

Poisons Information Centre: 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia, (0800 764 766 in New Zealand)

and from 82 to 779 mg/kg in mice, depending on the ratio of cis/trans- isomers present. This wide variation in toxicity

may reflect different mixtures of isomers in the materials tested. The dermal LD

in rats is 1600 mg/kg and in rabbits

is greater than 2000 mg/kg.

Chronic toxicity: Not Available

Reproductive effects: No adverse effects on reproduction were observed in a three-generation study with rats given

doses of 37.5 mg/kg/day, the highest dose tested.

Teratogenic effects: Cypermethrin is not teratogenic. No birth defects were observed in the offspring of rats given

doses as high as 70 mg/kg/day nor in the offspring of rabbits given doses as high as 30 mg/kg/day.

Mutagenic effects: Cypermethrin is not mutagenic, but tests with very high doses on mice caused a temporary

increase in the number of bone marrow cells with micronuclei. Other tests for mutagenic effects in human, bacterial,

and hamster cell cultures and in live mice have been negative.

Carcinogenic effects: EPA has classified cypermethrin as a possible human carcinogen because available

information is inconclusive. It caused benign lung tumours in female mice at the highest dose tested (229 mg/kg/day);

however, no tumours occurred in rats given high doses of up to 75 mg/kg/day.

Organ toxicity: Pyrethroids like cypermethrin may cause adverse effects on the central nervous system. Rats fed

high doses (37.5 mg/kg) of the cis-isomer of cypermethrin for five weeks exhibited severe motor incoordination, while

20 to 30% of rats fed 85 mg/kg died 4 to 17 days after treatment began. Long-term feeding studies have shown

increased liver and kidney weights and adverse changes in liver tissues in test animals. Pathological changes in the

cortex of the thymus, liver, adrenal glands, lungs, and skin were observed in rabbits repeatedly fed high doses of

cypermethrin.

Fate in humans and animals: In humans, urinary excretion of cypermethrin metabolites was complete 48 hours after

the last of five doses of 1.5 mg/kg/day. Studies in rats have shown that cypermethrin is rapidly metabolized by

hydroxylation and cleavage, with over 99% being eliminated within hours. The remaining 1% becomes stored in body

fat. This portion is eliminated slowly, with a half-life of 18 days for the cis-isomer and 3.4 days for the trans-isomer.

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

This product is toxic to aquatic organisms. This product is slowly biodegradable. It will not accumulate in the soil or

water or cause long term problems.

Effects on birds: Cypermethrin is practically non-toxic to birds. No adverse reproductive effects occurred in mallards

or bobwhite quail given 50 ppm, the highest dose tested.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Cypermethrin is very highly toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. Cypermethrin is

metabolized and eliminated significantly more slowly by fish than by mammals or birds, which may explain this

compound's higher toxicity in fish compared to other organisms. The bioconcentration factor for cypermethrin in

rainbow trout was 1200 times the ambient water concentration, indicating that there is a moderate potential to

accumulate in aquatic organisms. Elimination of half of the compound took nearly eight days.

Effects on other organisms: Cypermethrin is highly toxic to bees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Cypermethrin has a moderate persistence in soils. Under laboratory

conditions, cypermethrin degrades more rapidly on sandy clay and sandy loam soils than on clay soils, and more

rapidly in soils low in organic material. Cypermethrin is not soluble in water and has a strong tendency to adsorb to

soil particles. It is therefore unlikely to cause groundwater contamination.

Breakdown in water: In neutral or acid aqueous solution, cypermethrin hydrolyses slowly, with hydrolysis being more

rapid at pH 9 (basic solution). Under normal environmental temperatures and pH, cypermethrin is stable to hydrolysis

with a half-life of greater than 50 days and to photodegradation with a half-life of greater than 100 days. In pond

waters and in laboratory degradation studies, pyrethroid concentrations decrease rapidly due to sorption to sediment,

suspended particles and plants. Microbial degradation and photodegradation also occur.

Breakdown in vegetation: When applied to strawberry plants, 40% of the applied cypermethrin remained after one

day, 12% remained after three days, and 0.5% remained after seven days, with a light rain occurring on day 3. When

cypermethrin was applied to wheat, residues on the wheat were 4 ppm immediately after spraying and declined to 0.2

ppm 27 days later. No cypermethrin was detected in the grain.
