Conditions to

Avoid

Avoid heat, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources.

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY

Material to Avoid

Incompatible with oxidising agents (eg. peroxides) and acids (eg. hydrochloric acid).

Decomposition

May evolve toxic gases if heated to decomposition.

Hazardous

Reactions

Polymerization is not expected to occur.

Health Hazard

Summary

This product has the potential to cause adverse health effects with eye contact or prolonged skin contact. Due to

the low vapour pressure of this product an inhalation hazard is not anticipated with normal use. Use safe work

practices to avoid direct eye or skin contact and vapour/ mist generation-inhalation.

Eye

Contact may result in irritation, lacrimation, pain, redness, conjunctivitis and possible burns.

Inhalation

Over exposure may result in irritation of the nose & throat with coughing, nausea and headache. Low vapour

pressure reduces the inhalation hazard.

Skin

Contact may result in irritation, redness, itching, pain, rash, dermatitis and possible burns.

Ingestion

Ingestion may result in ulceration and burns to the mouth and throat, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and

diarrhoea.

Toxicity Data

No LD50 data available for this product.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Environment

WATER: If released to waterways, alkaline products may change the pH of the waterway. Fish will die if the pH

reaches 10-11 (goldfish 10.9, bluegill 10.5). SOIL: May leach to groundwater with toxic effects on aquatic life as

above. ATMOSPHERE: Not expected to reside in the atmosphere. Drops or particles released to atmosphere

should be removed by gravity and/or be rained out.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Waste Disposal

For small amounts absorb with sand, vermiculite or similar and dispose of to an approved landfill site. Contact the

manufacturer for additional information if larger amounts are involved. Prevent contamination of drains and

waterways as aquatic life may be threatened and environmental damage may result.

Legislation

Dispose of in accordance with relevant local legislation.
