Health Hazard

Summary Low to moderate toxicity - irritant. This product may present a hazard with direct eye or prolonged skin contact or

with ingestion. Chronic exposure to borates may result in central nervous system depression (CNS). An inhalation

hazard is not anticipated with normal use. Maintain good personal hygiene standards.

Eye Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, lacrimation, pain, redness and conjunctivitis. May result in burns with

prolonged contact.

Inhalation Low irritant. Over exposure may result in irritation of the nose and throat, with coughing. Due to the low vapour

pressure, an inhalation hazard is not anticipated with normal use.

Skin Irritant. Contact may result in irritation, redness, pain and rash.

Ingestion Low to moderate toxicity. Ingestion may result in nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Ingestion of

large quantities may result in shock and coma.

Toxicity Data DISODIUM OCTABORATE TETRAHYDRATE (12008-41-2)

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Environment Boron is an essential micronutrient for healthy growth of plants, however, it can be harmful to boron sensitive

plants at higher concentrations. The desired level of boron in saturated soil is between 0.15ppm and 0.5ppm. Care

should be taken to minimise the amount of boron product released to the environment. Calcium may precipitate

out some of the boron, but this process will not significantly reduce toxicity to plants. 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.

Legislation Dispose of in accordance with relevant local legislation. 13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

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.
