Acute dermal LD50 - > 1350 mg/kg (rabbit).
Skin - Slightly irritating.
Eye - Slightly irritating.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.

25 TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

26 FIRST AID:

Contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26.
If Swallowed - Induce vomiting preferably with Ipecac Syrup APF. Not considered a hazard.
If on Skin - Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.
