CAS NO. TLV (units) Component(s) (chemical & common name(s)) ----------------------------------------------------------Tetrachlorvinphos: 75 22248-79-9 None Established [2-chloro-1-(2,4,5(z-isomer) trichlorophenyl) vinyl dimethyl phosphate] ----------------------------------------------------------SECTION 3 - PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS (Fire & Explosion Data) ----------------------------------------------------------BOILING POINT: N/A MELTING POINT: 97 deg C (Tetrachlorvinphos) SPECIFIC GRAVITY (H2O=1): 0.22-0.24 g/mL VAPOR PRESSURE (mm Hg) @ 25 deg C: 2.6 x 10(-7) mm Hg (Tetrachlorvinphos) PERCENT VOLATILE BY VOLUME (%): N/A VAPOR DENSITY: N/A EVAPORATION RATE: N/A SOLUBILITY IN WATER: Soluble in Water, Contains Emulsifier REACTIVITY IN WATER: Not Reactive APPEARANCE AND ODOR: Uniform off-white to brown powder with mild musty odor. FLASH POINT: N/A FLAMMABLE LIMITS IN AIR % BY VOLUME: LOWER: N/A UPPER: N/A EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Water Fog, Chemical Foam, Dry Chemical or Carbon Dioxide. Utilize water under severe fire conditions. Avoid action causing spread of material. AUTO-IGNITION TEMPERATURE: N/A SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Pressure-demand, selfcontained breathing apparatus and impervious clothing should be worn by firefighters in buildings or confined areas where the product is stored. Isolate area. UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: With sufficient heat or burning, toxic and/or noxious vapors may be emitted (carbon monoxide and hydrogen chloride). ----------------------------------------------------------SECTION 4 - PHYSICAL HAZARDS ----------------------------------------------------------STABILITY: Stable at normal temperatures and storage conditions. INCOMPATIBILITY (MATERIALS TO AVOID): Incompatible with strong base chemicals. HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Hazardous gases/vapors produced are carbon monoxide and hydrogen chloride. HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Material is not known to polymerize under normal conditions.

----------------------------------------------------------SECTION 5 - HEALTH HAZARDS ----------------------------------------------------------THRESHOLD LIMIT VALUE: ACGIH: None Established OSHA: None Established SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE: 1. ACUTE OVEREXPOSURE: Oral LD50 (rat) 2686 mg/kg; Dermal LD50 (rabbit) >2000 mg/kg; Inhalation LC50 >1.37 mg/L (rat), 1 hr. non-lethal in tetrachlorvinphos study. This product is slightly toxic and may be harmful if swallowed and may produce acute cholinesterase depression. Moderately toxic by skin contact. Mildly irritating to skin and eyes. Not a sensitizing agent. The following symptoms may result: constricted pupils, frequent urination, increased perspiration, tearing, salivation, headache, blurred vision, mental confusion, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhea and shortness of breath, and in more severe cases, convulsions. 2. CHRONIC OVEREXPOSURE: Chronic exposure may produce kidney and liver damage. Pre-existing conditions which lower cholinesterase levels increase vulnerability to cholinesterase depression. Kidney damage may be evidenced by changes in urine output, urine appearance or edema (swelling from fluid retention). Liver damage may be evidenced by loss of appetite, jaundice (yellowish skin color) and sometimes pain in the upper abdomen on the right side. CHEMICAL LISTED AS CARCINOGEN OR POTENTIAL CARCINOGEN: The International Agency for Research on Cancer, IARC Monograph, Volume 30 (197), has determined that: "Results of experiments in mice and rats provided limited evidence that tetrachlorvinphos is carcinogenic to experimental animals. No data on humans were available." Handling procedures and safety precautions in the MSDS should be followed to minimize employee exposure. None of the components in this chemical are listed by IARC, NTP, OSHA, or ACGIH as a carcinogen. EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES: Seek medical attention immediately 1. INHALATION: Remove person from contaminated area to fresh air. Resuscitate and/or administer oxygen as necessary. Seek medical attention. 2. EYES: Flush eyes with plenty of water holding eyelids apart to ensure flushing of the entire eye surface. Call a physician if irritation persists. 3. SKIN: Wash contaminated areas with plenty of soap and water. Wash clothing before reuse. 4. INGESTION: NEVER give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Have conscious person drink one or two glasses of water and induce vomiting by touching back of throat with finger. Repeat until vomit fluid is clear. Call a physician immediately. NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: This product inactivates both plasma and RBC cholinesterase. If signs of cholinesterase inhibition are observed, atropine sulfate by injection is antidotal and may be administered in conjunction with 2-PAM (Pralidoxime Chloride). MORPHINE IS CONTRAINDICATED.

----------------------------------------------------------SECTION 6 - SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION ----------------------------------------------------------RESPIRATORY PROTECTION (SPECIFY TYPE): A suitable NIOSHapproved respirator. VENTILATION: Any operation which may generate a dust should be isolated and provided with local ventilation. LOCAL EXHAUST: Yes PROTECTIVE GLOVES: Protective rubber gloves. Care should be taken so product cannot get inside of gloves. EYE PROTECTION: Chemical splash goggles. OTHER PROTECTIVE CLOTHING OR EQUIPMENT: Protective clothing consisting of long-sleeve shirt and long pants should be worn when handling this material. The clothing should be changed at least daily. Persons exposed routinely to the active material should shower prior to leaving work each day. Safety shower and eyewash stations should be provided in all areas in which the product is stored and/or handled. Contaminated clothing should be removed and washed thoroughly before re-using. ----------------------------------------------------------SECTION 7 - SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS AND SPILL/LEAK PROCEDURES ----------------------------------------------------------PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN HANDLING AND STORAGE: Store in a dry place in original container. Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal. OTHER PRECAUTIONS: The pesticide tetrachlorvinphos is highly toxic to fish. Do not contaminate water when disposing of spills or equipment wash water. 96 hour LC50, Blue Gill Sunfish 0.53 mg/L. STEPS TO BE TAKEN IN CASE MATERIAL IS RELEASED OR SPILLED: Avoid contact. Keep people away. Review FIRE and EXPLOSION HAZARDS and SAFETY PRECAUTIONS before proceeding with clean up. Wear protective clothing and equipment. In case of spillage, wash down with large amounts of water. Decontaminate areas and equipment by washing with a dilute solution of alkali (less than 5%) and detergent and rinse with water. In case of significant spill, call CHEMTREC. CONTAINER DISPOSAL: Completely empty liner by shaking and tapping sides and bottom to loosen clinging particles. Empty residue into mixing equipment.
