Emergency Overview

Physical Description & colour

: Clear yellow liquid.

Odour:

Characteristic 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 irritating to eyes and skin,

harmful if swallowed, possible skin sensitiser, if aspirated, may cause lung damage.

Potential Health Effects

Persons sensitised to Permethrin should avoid contact with this product.

Inhalation:

Short term exposure:

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 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES

General Information:

You should call The Poisons Information Centre if you feel that you may have been poisoned, burned or irritated by

this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is available at all

times. Have this SDS with you when you call.

Inhalation:

No first aid measures normally required. However, if inhalation has occurred, and irritation has

developed, remove to fresh air and observe until recovered. If irritation becomes painful or persists more than about

30 minutes, seek medical advice.

Skin Contact:

Wash gently and thoroughly with warm water (use non-abrasive soap if necessary) for 10-20 minutes

or until product is removed. Under running water, remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g.

watchbands and belts) and completely decontaminate them before reuse or discard. If irritation persists, repeat

flushing and seek medical attention.

Eye Contact:

Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 15 minutes or until

the product is removed, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water into the

unaffected eye or onto the face. Obtain medical attention immediately. Take special care if exposed person is wearing

contact lenses.

Ingestion:

If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Wash mouth with water and contact a Poisons Information

Centre, or call a doctor.

SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Fire and Explosion Hazards

: The major hazard in fires is usually inhalation of heated and toxic or oxygen

deficient (or both), fire gases. There is little risk of an explosion from this product if commercial quantities are involved

in a fire. Violent steam generation or eruption may occur upon application of direct water stream on hot liquids.

Vapours from this product are heavier than air and may accumulate in sumps, pits and other low-lying spaces,

forming potentially explosive mixtures. They may also flash back considerable distances.

Fire decomposition products from this product may be toxic if inhaled. Take appropriate protective measures.

Extinguishing Media

: In case of fire, use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, water fog.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

There is no data to hand indicating any particular target organs.

Cypermethrin is classed by SWA as a potential sensitiser by skin contact.

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,

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.

Conc>=25%: Xn; R22; R37/38; R43

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment. This product is

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 half-lives for elimination of several pyrethroids by

trout are all greater than 48 hours, while elimination half-lives in birds and mammals range from 6 to 12 hours. 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 accumulated amount

of the compound took nearly eight days.

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

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

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. In aerobic conditions, its soil half-life is 4 days to 8 weeks. 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.

SECTION 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Disposal:

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank. Do not dispose

of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated

collection point. If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill. If no

landfill is available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose

clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt.
