† Copper nitrate is present at a concentration giving 16.8g/kg copper as Cu

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

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The 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 should not be exceeded for more than 15 minutes and should

not be repeated for 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.

: Minor spills do not normally need any special cleanup measures. In the event of a major spill,

prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses. As a minimum, wear overalls, goggles and gloves. Suitable

materials for protective clothing include PVC, Viton. Eye/face protective equipment should comprise as a minimum,

protective glasses and, preferably, goggles. If there is a significant chance that dusts are likely to build up in cleanup

area, we recommend that you use a suitable Dust Mask.

Stop leak if safe to do so, and contain spill. Sweep up and shovel or collect recoverable product into labelled

containers for recycling or salvage, and dispose of promptly. Consider vacuuming if appropriate. Recycle containers

wherever possible after careful cleaning. After spills, wash area preventing runoff from entering drains. If a significant

quantity of material enters drains, advise emergency services. This material may be suitable for approved landfill.
