IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: - Amber liquid with a faint, mild petroleum odor. - Moderately combustible. May support combustion if heated above the product'sflash point (see 'Fire Fighting Measures' in Section 5). - Thermal decomposition and burning may form toxic by-products. - For large exposures or fire, wear personal protective equipment. - Highly toxic to fish and aquatic organisms. Keep out of drains and water courses. - Moderately irritating to the skin.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS: Effects from overexposure result from either swallowing, or coming into contact with the skin or eyes. Symptoms of overexposure include increased hypersensitivity to touch and sound, tremors and convulsions. Contact with this product has rarely produced skin sensations such as numbing, burning and tingling. These sensations are reversible and usually subside within 12 hours. MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED: None presently known. 4. FIRST AID MEASURES EYES: Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation occurs and persists, obtain medical attention. SKIN: Wash with plenty of soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation occurs and persists. INGESTION: Rinse mouth with water. Dilute by giving 1 or 2 glasses of water. Do
not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. See a medical doctor immediately.
INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If breathing difficulty or discomfort occurs and persists, obtain medical attention. NOTES TO MEDICAL DOCTOR: This product has low oral, dermal and inhalation toxicity. It is moderately irritating to the skin and minimally irritating to the eyes. Reversible skin sensations (paresthesia) may occur and ordinary skin salves have been found useful in reducing discomfort. Contains aromatic hydrocarbons that can produce a severe pneumonitis if aspirated during vomiting. Consideration should be given to gastric lavage with an endotracheal tube in place. Treatment is otherwise controlled removal of exposure followed by symptomatic and supportive care. 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES FLASH POINT AND METHOD: 66 - 68°C (151 - 154°F) (TAG) EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Foam, CO2 or dry chemical. Soft stream water fog only if necessary. Contain all runoff. EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Moderately combustible. When heated above the flash point, this material releases vapors which, when mixed with air, can burn or be explosive. FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Isolate fire area. Evacuate downwind. Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not breathe smoke, gases or vapors generated. HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Chlorine, hydrogen chloride, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and aldehydes. 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES RELEASE NOTES: Isolate and post spill area. Wear protective clothing and personal protective equipment as prescribed in Section 8, "Exposure Controls/Personal Protection". Keep unprotected persons and animals out of the area.
Keep material out of lakes, streams, ponds and sewer drains. Dike to confine spill and absorb with a non-combustible absorbent such as clay, sand or soil. Vacuum, shovel or pump waste into a drum and label contents for disposal.
To clean and neutralize spill area, tools and equipment, wash with a suitable solution (i.e., bleach or caustic/soda ash and either ethylene glycol or an appropriate alcohol, i.e., methanol, ethanol or isopropanol). Follow this by washing with a strong soap and water
solution. Absorb as above, any excess liquid and add to the drums of waste already collected. Repeat if necessary. Dispose of drummed waste according to the method outlined in Section 13, "Disposal Considerations".
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE GENERAL PROCEDURES: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Do not use or store near heat, open flame or hot surfaces. Store in original containers only. Store at temperatures above 40°F (5°C). If crystals form, warm to room temperature 70°F (21°C) by room heating only for 24-48 hours, and shake occasionally until crystals dissolve and product appears uniform. Do not use external source of heat for warming container. Keep out of reach of children and animals. Do not contaminate other pesticides, fertilizers, water, food or feed by storage or disposal. 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use local exhaust at all process locations where vapor or mist may be emitted. Ventilate all transport vehicles prior to unloading. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
EYES AND FACE: For splash, mist or spray exposure, wear chemical protective goggles or a face shield.
RESPIRATORY: For splash, mist or spray exposure wear, as a minimum, a properly fitted half-face or full-face air-purifying respirator which is approved for pesticides (U.S. NIOSH/MSHA, EU CEN or comparable certification organization). Respirator use and selection must be based on airborne concentrations.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Depending upon concentrations encountered, wear coveralls or long-sleeved uniform and head covering. For larger exposures as in the case of spills, wear full body cover barrier suit, such as a PVC suit. Leather items - such as shoes, belts and watchbands - that become contaminated should be removed and destroyed. Launder all work clothing before reuse (separately from household laundry).
WORK HYGIENIC PRACTICES: Clean water should be available for washing in case of eye or skin contamination. Wash skin prior to eating, drinking or using tobacco. Shower at the end of the workday.
GLOVES:Wear chemical protective gloves made of materials such as nitrile, neoprene or Viton® brand. Thoroughly wash the outside of gloves with soap and water prior to removal. Inspect regularly for leaks.
COMMENTS: Personal protective recommendations for mixing or applying this product are prescribed on the product label. Information stated above provides useful, additional guidance for individuals whose use or handling of this product is not guided by the product label. 9.

TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION DERMAL LD : >2000 mg/kg (rabbit) ORAL LD : 998 mg/kg (rat) INHALATION LC : >4.3 mg/L/4 hr (rat) ACUTE EFFECTS FROM OVEREXPOSURE: This product has low oral, dermal and inhalation toxicity. It is moderately irritating to the skin and minimally irritating to the eyes. Experience to date indicates that contact with this product has rarely produced skin sensations such as numbing, burning or tingling. These sensations are
reversible and usually subside within 12 hours. Large toxic doses of the formulated product, administered to laboratory animals, have produced central nervous system effects with symptoms that include hypersensitivity to touch and sound, tremors, and clonic convulsions. Overexposure to animals via inhalation has also produced symptoms such as squinting eyes, irregular and rattling breathing, and ataxia. Inhalation of aromatic hydrocarbon vapors may cause dizziness, disturbances in vision, drowsiness, respiratory irritation, and eye, skin and mucous membrane irritation. Vomiting after ingestion of this product may cause aspiration of aromatic hydrocarbons into the lungs which may result in fatal pulmonary edema.
CHRONIC EFFECTS FROM OVEREXPOSURE: No data available for the formulation. In studies with laboratory animals, permethrin did not cause reproductive toxicity or teratogenicity. Analysis of chronic feeding studies in both mice and rats with permethrin resulted in the conclusion that permethrin's potential for induction of oncogenicity in experimental animals is low and that the likelihood of oncogenic effects in humans is nonexistent or extremely low. Long-term feeding studies in animals resulted in increased liver and kidney weights, induction of the liver microsomal drug metabolizing enzyme system and histopathological changes in the lungs and liver. An overall absence of genotoxicity has been demonstrated in mutagenicity testing with permethrin. Chronic exposure to aromatic hydrocarbons may cause headaches, dizziness, loss of sensations or feelings (such as numbness), and liver and kidney damage. CARCINOGENICITY: 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Unless otherwise indicated, the data presented below are for the active ingredient.
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA: In soil, permethrin is stable over a wide range of pH values. When applied at agricultural use rates, permethrin has a moderate rate of degradation in soil. At termiticidal use rates, permethrin degrades at a slower rate which is governed by soil characteristics. Due to its high affinity for organic matter (Koc = 86,000), there is little potential for movement in soil or entry into ground water. Permethrin has a Log Pow of 6.1, but a low potential to bioconcentrate (BCF = 500) due to the ease with which it is metabolized. ECOTOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION: Permethrin is highly toxic to fish (LC50 = 0.5 µg/L to 315 µg/L) and aquatic arthropods (LC50 = 0.02 µg/L to 7.6 µg/L).
Marine species are often more sensitive than the freshwater species. Bacteria, algae, mollusks and amphibians are much more tolerant of permethrin than the fish and arthropods. Care should be taken to avoid contamination of the aquatic environment. Permethrin is slightly toxic to birds and oral LD50 values are greater than 3600 mg/kg. Longer dietary studies showed that concentrations of up to 500 ppm in the diet had no effect on bird reproduction.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS DISPOSAL METHOD: Open dumping or burning of this material or its packaging is prohibited. If spilled material cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, an acceptable method of disposal is to incinerate in accordance with local, state and national environmental laws, rules, standards and regulations. However, because acceptable methods of disposal may vary by location, and regulatory requirements may change, the appropriate agencies should be contacted prior to disposal. EMPTY CONTAINER: Non-returnable containers which held this material should be cleaned, prior to disposal, by triple rinsing. Containers which held this material may be cleaned by being triple-rinsed, and recycled, with the rinsate being incinerated. Do not cut or weld metal containers. Vapors that form may create an explosion hazard. 14.
