Symptoms include weakening of facial muscle, tremor, anxiety, reduced muscle and limbcontrol.EYE■ This material can cause eye irritation and damage in some persons.SKIN■ This material can cause inflammation of the skin oncontact in some persons.Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may produce systemic injury with harmful effects.Examine the skin prior to the use of the material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected.INHALED■ Inhalation of vapours or aerosols (mists, fumes), generated by the material during the course of normal handling, may beharmful.The material can cause respiratory irritation in some persons. The body's response to such irritation can cause further lungdamage.CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS■ Substance accumulation, in the human body, is likely and may cause some concern following repeated or long-term occupationalexposure.There is some evidence that inhaling this product is more likely to cause a sensitisation reaction in some persons compared tothe general population.Sulfites and bisulfites can cause narrowing of the airways, stomach upset, flushing, low blood pressure, tingling sensation,itchy wheal, swelling and shock, and asthmatics are especially prone. They induce allergic-like reactions which can occur onfirst contact with the material.TOXICITY AND IRRITATION■ No significant acute toxicological data identified in literature search.Asthma-like symptoms may continue for months or even years after exposure to the material ceases. This may be due to a nonallergeniccondition known as reactive airways dysfunction syndrome (RADS) which can occur following exposure to high levels ofhighly irritating compound.CARCINOGENSulfites International Agency for Research on Cancer Group 3(IARC) - Agents Reviewed by the IARCMonographsNo dataSection 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATIONEcotoxicityIngredient Persistence: Persistence: Air Bioaccumulation MobilityWater/Soilcontinued...

Well-designed engineeringcontrols can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions to provide thishigh level of protection.The basic types of engineering controls are:Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk.Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilationthat strategically "adds" and "removes" air in the work environment.Section 9 - PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIESAPPEARANCEClear dark amber liquid with a slight ammonia odour; mixes with water.PHYSICAL PROPERTIESLiquid.Mixes with water.State Liquid Molecular Weight Not ApplicableMelting Range (°C) Not Applicable Viscosity Not AvailableBoiling Range (°C) >100 Solubility in water (g/L) MiscibleFlash Point (°C) Not Applicable pH (1% solution) Not AvailableDecomposition Temp (°C) Not Available pH (as supplied) 5.9Autoignition Temp (°C) Not Applicable Vapour Pressure (kPa) Not AvailableUpper Explosive Limit (%) Not Applicable Specific Gravity (water=1) 1.17Lower Explosive Limit (%) Not Applicable Relative Vapour Density Not Available(air=1)Volatile Component (%vol) Not Available Evaporation Rate Not AvailableSection 10 - STABILITY AND REACTIVITYCONDITIONS CONTRIBUTING TO INSTABILITY• Presence of incompatible materials.• Product is considered stable.continued...

Symptoms include weakening of facial muscle, tremor, anxiety, reduced muscle and limbcontrol.EYE■ This material can cause eye irritation and damage in some persons.SKIN■ This material can cause inflammation of the skin oncontact in some persons.The material may accentuate any pre-existing dermatitis condition.Mild skin reaction is seen with contact of the vapour of this material on moist skin. High concentrations or direct contact withsolutions produces severe pain, a stinging sensation, burns and blisters and possible brown stains. Death could result fromextensive burning. Vapour exposure may rarely, produce an itchy rash.Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may produce systemic injury with harmful effects.Examine the skin prior to the use of the material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected.INHALED■ The material can cause respiratory irritation in some persons. The body's response to such irritation can cause further lungdamage.Not normally a hazard due to non-volatile nature of product.The highly irritant properties of ammonia vapour result as the gas dissolves in mucous fluids and forms irritant, even corrosivesolutions.Inhalation of the ammonia fumes causes coughing, vomiting, reddening of lips, mouth, nose, throat and conjunctiva while higherconcentrations can cause temporary blindness, restlessness, tightness in the chest, pulmonary oedema (lung damage), weak pulseand cyanosis.CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS■ Skin contact with the material is more likely to cause a sensitisation reaction in some persons compared to the generalpopulation.Substance accumulation, in the human body, may occur and may cause some concern following repeated or long-term occupationalexposure.There is some evidence that inhaling this product is more likely to cause a sensitisation reaction in some persons compared tothe general population.Chelates are occasionally used in therapies for various forms of poisoning. A systemic reaction known as the "excessive chelationsyndrome" consists mainly of general unwellness, fatigue, thirst, followed by chills and fever. Muscle ache, headache, loss ofappetite, nausea and occasionally increased urinary urgency and frequency may occur, as may cold-like symptoms.Prolonged or repeated minor exposure to ammonia gas/vapour may cause long-term irritation to the eyes, nose and upper respiratorytract. Repeated exposure or prolonged contact may produce dermatitis, and conjunctivitis.
