EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: white to almost white solid.
Danger! Causes eye burns. May cause harm to the unborn child. Harmful if swallowed. May be harmful if absorbed through skin or if inhaled. May cause cancer in humans.
Target Organs: Eyes, bone marrow, reproductive system, bladder.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes severe eye irritation and possible injury.
Skin: May cause skin irritation. May be harmful if absorbed through the skin.

Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. May be harmful if inhaled. May cause nausea and possible vomiting.
Chronic: May cause cancer in humans. May cause reproductive and fetal effects. In case of a therapeutical use of the product, typical side effects are: myelosuppression (suppression of bone marrow activity resulting in reduction in the number of platelets, red cells, and white cells), gastrointestinal complaints, cystitis (inflammation of the urinary bladder), hair loss, disorders of spermatogenesis or ovulation.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid imme diately.
