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

hazardousingredients arealso possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentrationof aparticular substance when calculatedover a normal 8 hourworking dayfor a 5

dayworkingweek. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) isan exposure value thatshould notbe exceeded for morethan 15 minutes andshould

not be repeated for more than 4 times per day. There should be atleast 60 minutes between successive exposures atthe STEL. The term "peak "is

used when theTWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should neverbe exceeded, even briefly.

any doubts, contact the supplier for advice onshelf life properties.

Conditions to Avoid:This product should bekept in a cool place, preferably below30°C.

Incompatibilities:No particular incompatibilities.

Fire Decomposition:Carbondioxide,and if combustion isincomplete, carbonmonoxide and smoke. Nitrogen and

its compounds, and undersomecircumstances, oxides ofnitrogen. Occasionallyhydrogencyanide gas. Oxides of

sulfur(sulfurdioxide is a respiratory hazard) and othersulfurcompounds. Most will have a foul odour. Oxides of

phosphorus and other phosphoruscompounds. Hydrogen chloridegas, other compounds of chlorine. Water. Carbon

monoxide poisoning produces headache, weakness, nausea, dizziness, confusion, dimnessofvision, disturbance of

judgment, and unconsciousness followed by coma and death. Hydrogencyanidepoisoningsigns and symptoms are

weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea,vomiting, coma, convulsions, and death.Death results from respiratory

arrest. Hydrogen cyanidegas acts very rapidly;symptoms and death can both occur quickly.

Polymerisation:This product is unlikely to undergopolymerisation processes.

Section 11 – Toxicological Information

Toxicity: Acute toxicity:Toxic effects of Diazinon are due to the inhibition ofacetylcholinesterase, an enzyme

needed for proper nervoussystem function. The range of dosesthat results in toxic effects varieswidely with

formulation and with the individual species being exposed. Thetoxicity of encapsulated formulations isrelatively low

because Diazinon is not released readilywhile in the digestive tract. Some formulations of thecompound can be

degraded to more toxic forms. This transformation may occurin air, particularlyin the presence of moisture, and by

ultraviolet radiation. Mostmodern Diazinon formulations are stableand do not degrade easily. The symptoms

associatedwith Diazinon poisoning in humansinclude weakness, headaches, tightness in the chest, blurred vision,

nonreactive pinpoint pupils,salivation,sweating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, andslurred speech.

Death has occurred in some instances from both dermal and oralexposuresat very high levels. The LD

is 300 to

400mg/kg fortechnical grade Diazinon in rats. The inhalation LC

(4-hour) in rats is 3.5 mg/L.In rabbits, the dermal

is 3600 mg/kg.

Chronic toxicity:Chronic effects havebeen observedat dosesranging from10mg/kg/day for swine to 1000

mg/kg/day for rats. Inhibitionof red bloodcell cholinesterase, and enzyme response occurred atlower doses in the

rats. Enzymeinhibition hasbeen documented in red blood cells, in blood plasma,and in brain cells at varyingdoses

and with different species.

Reproductiveeffects:Nodata arecurrently available.

Teratogenic effects:The data on teratogenic effects due to chronic exposureare inconclusive. One study has shown

that injectionof Diazinon into chicken eggs resultedinskeletal andspinal deformities in the chicks. Bobwhite quail

born from eggs treated in a similar manner showedskeletaldeformities but nospinal abnormalities. Acetylcholine was

significantly affected in this latter study. Tests with hamsters and rabbits at low doses (0.125 0.25 mg/kg/day) showed

no developmental effects,while tests with dogs and pigsat higher levels (1.0 10.0 mg/kg/day) revealedgross

abnormalities.

Mutagenic effects:Whilesome testshave suggested that Diazinon ismutagenic, current evidence is inconclusive.

Carcinogenic effects:Diazinon is not considered carcinogenic. Tests on ratsover a 2-year period at moderate

doses (about 45 mg/kg)didnot cause tumor development in the test animals.

Organ toxicity:Diazinonitself is not a potent cholinesterase inhibitor. However, in animals, it is converted to

diazoxon, a compound thatis a strong enzyme inhibitor.

Fate in humans and animals:Metabolism and excretion rates for Diazinonare rapid. The half-life of Diazinonin

animalsis about 12 hours.The product is passed outof the body through urine and in the faeces. The metabolites

account for about 70% of the total amount excreted.Cattle exposed to Diazinonmay store thecompound intheir fat

over the shortterm. One study showed that the compoundclearedthe cowswithin 2 weeks after spraying stopped.

Application of Diazinon to the skin of cowsresultedintrace amounts in milk 24 hours after theapplication.

Section 12 – Ecological Information

PVC is not biodegradable.

Effects on birds:Birds are quite susceptible to Diazinon poisoning. In 1988, the EPA concluded that the use of

Diazinon in open areas poses a "widespread and continuous hazard" to birds. Bird kills associated with Diazinonuse

have been reported in every area of the country and atalltimes of the year. Canadian geeseand mallard ducks may

be exposed to LC

concentrationsin very short periods of time after application (from 15to 80 minutesdepending on

the application rate of the pesticide).Birds are significantly more susceptible to Diazinon thanother wildlife. LD

values for birds range from2.75 mg/kgto 40.8 mg/kg.

Effects on aquatic organisms:Diazinon is highly toxic to fish. Inrainbow trout, the DiazinonLC

is2.6 to 3.2 mg/L.

In hard water,lake trout and cutthroat trout aresomewhatmore resistant. Warmwater fish such asfatheadminnows

and goldfishare even more resistant with Diazinon LC

values ranging upto 15 mg/L. There is some evidence that

saltwater fishare more susceptiblethanfreshwaterfish.Bioconcentration ratios range from200 in minnowsto 17.5

for guppies. These studiesshowthat Diazinondoes not bioconcentrate significantly in fish.

Effects on other organisms:Diazinonis highly toxic to bees.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater:Diazinon hasa low persistence insoil. The half-life is2 to 4 weeks.Bacterial

enzymescanspeed the breakdown of Diazinon andhave been usedin treating emergency situationssuchas spills.

Diazinonseldom migratesbelowthe tophalf inch in soil,but in some instances it may contaminate groundwater. The

pesticidewas detected in 54wells in California and in tap water in Ottawa, Canada, and in Japan.

Breakdown inwater:The breakdown rate is dependent on the acidity ofwater. At highly acidiclevels, one half of the

compound disappearedwithin 12 hourswhile in a neutral solution, the pesticide took 6 months to degrade to one half

of the originalconcentration.

Breakdown invegetation:In plants, a low temperature and a highoil content tend to increase the persistence of

Diazinon. Generally the half-life is rapid in leafy vegetables, foragecrops and grass. The rangeis from 2 to 14 days.

In treated riceplants only 10% of the residue was presentafter 9 days. Diazinon isabsorbed byplant rootswhen

applied to the soil and translocated to other parts of the plant.

Section 13 - Disposal Considerations

Disposal:There are manypiecesof legislation covering wastedisposal and theydiffer in each state and territory, so

each user must refer to laws operating intheir area. In someareas, certain wastesmust be tracked. TheHierarchy of
