INGREDIENT % w/w CLASSIFICATION
CAS NO EC NO

Contains permethrin. May cause an allergic reaction. Very toxic to aquatic
organisms, may cause long term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
FIRST AID MEASURES
In some individuals a characteristic and reversible skin irritation effect characteristic of natural pyrethrins may be experienced.
Accidental over exposure may result in the following symptoms:
Skin contact – not anticipated to be an irritant.
Inhalation – irritation to respiratory system.
Ingestion – unlikely occupational hazard. Deliberate ingestion could lead to neurological signs and symptoms such as ataxia, tremors or convulsions.
Additional medical guidance is available to doctors from the National Poisons Information Service.
Eye Contact - rinse with water thoroughly. If irritation persists seek medical advice.
Skin Contact - wash with soap and water. Remove and wash contaminated clothing.
Inhalation - remove to fresh air. If unwell seek medical advice.
FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Extinguish, preferably with foam, CO , dry powder, water
spray or water fog. Contain contaminated run-off.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: none
Under intense heat, product decomposition may release
nitrogen and carbon oxides.
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and
suitable protective clothing in confined spaces.
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personal precautions:
Do not breathe dust. Do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands and exposed skin after handling.
report to local water plc immediately if spillage enters
drains and the Environment Agency or Scottish Environment Protection Agency if it enters surface or ground waters
Sweep up any spillage carefully to minimise dust and transfer to heavy
duty plastic bags or drums and keep safe before disposal.
HANDLING & STORAGE
Do not block stack pallets.
Store in original containers, tightly closed in a secure, well ventilated, cool
but frost-free, dry area. Store clear of foodstuffs. Make arrangements for containment of accidental spillage.
Occupational exposure standards have been established (EH40) for talc,
see regulatory information for details. No specific personal protective equipment assigned. Normal good hygiene standards should be observed.

Permethrin is of low mammalian toxicity and is readily metabolised and excreted with immediate loss of toxicity. Acute toxicity for permethrin LD50 oral rat 7500 mg/kg
Technical permethrin is an eye and skin irritant.
: Studies to investigate the leaching potential of permethrin and its
degradates showed that very little downward movement occurs in soil. Permethrin in
the aquatic environment adsorbs to vegetation and hydrosoil.
Persistence and degradability
: Permethrin degradation in soil has a half-life of 28
days or less. The trans-isomer degrades more rapidly than the cis-isomer, with ester
cleavage being the major degradative pathway.
Permethrin disappears rapidly from the aqueous environment, in 6-24 hours from ponds and streams and 7 days from pond sediment.
In water and on soil surfaces permethrin is photodegraded by sunlight. Ester cleavage and cis-trans interconversion are the major reactions. The degradative processes which occur in the environment lead to less toxic products.
: Bioaccumulation of permethrin in mammals and aquatic
organisms is not expected.
: Permethrin is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Measured 96 hr LC50 in
fish ranges from 0.62-314 µg/litre on a flow through test and 3.2-5.7µg/litre in a static test. Permethrin has a very low toxicity to mammals and birds. However permethrin is very toxic to bees, with a 24 hr measured topical LD50 of 0.029 µg/bee.
Dispose of waste through a reputable waste disposal contractor or contact
local authority in accordance with Environmental Protection Act 1990.
