4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation                    If inhaled, remove from exposure and have patient lie down and keep
                              quiet. If patient is not breathing, start artificial respiration immediately.
                              Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a
                              physician if necessary.
Skin contact                  If spilt on the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash affected
                              areas of skin immediately. DO NOT Scrub the skin. Remove and wash
                              contaminated clothing before re-use.
Eye contact                   If concentrate is splashed in eyes, flush with running water for at least
                              15 minutes. Take to hospital without delay. For advice contact the
                              National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON (0800 764766)
Ingestion                     If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. For advice, contact the
                              National Poisons Centre 0800 POISON (0800 764766) or call a doctor
                              immediately.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Flammable Properties       Flash Point 14°C Closed Cup
                           Flammable limits in Air % by volume (methanol) LEL: 6.7 UEL: 36
Fire/Explosion Hazard      Vapour forms explosive mixture with air. Heating can release vapours,
                           which can be ignited.
Extinguishing Media        Water spray, foam, dry chemical, C02. Halon
Fire Fighting Instructions Evacuate personnel to a safe area. Keep personnel removed and
                           upwind of fire. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full
                           protective equipment Shut off source of fuel, if possible and without
                           risk. Use water spray. Cool tank/container with water spray. Fight fire
                           from maximum distance, use extreme caution as heat may decompose
                           material and rupture containers.
                           If area is heavily exposed to fire and if conditions permit, let fire burn
                           itself out since water may increase the area contaminated.
Combustion products        Hazardous gases produced in a fire under conditions that produce
                           incomplete combustion may consist of S02, N02, C02, CH3NC0,
                           HCN, C0, CS2. When combusted at higher temperatures with sufficient
                           oxygen, the following are greatly reduced: CS2, C0, HCN, and
                           CH3NC0.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Spill precautions        Use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment during clean up. (See
                         section 8). Evacuate personnel, thoroughly ventilate area, and use self -
                         contained breathing apparatus. Remove source of heat, sparks, flame,
                         impact friction or electricity. Keep upwind of leak - evacuate until gas
                         has dispersed.
Spill containment        Dyke spill. Prevent liquid from entering sewers, waterways on low
                         areas.
Spill clean up           Soak up with sawdust, sand or other absorbent material. Shovel or
                         sweep up. Never return to container for reuse. DO NOT flush to
                         surface water or sanitary sewer system. See section 13 for disposal
                         directions.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Acute Effects
Eye                      Causes pupillary constriction and other effects associated with
                         anticholinesterase activity. In addition, 0.1 ml of undiluted 24%
                         formulation caused moderate but penetrating corneal injury, which was
                         receding after 14 days.
Skin                     (Guinea pigs) Application to shaved skin as a 24% formulation did not
                         cause irritation or sensitisation.
Inhalation               1 hour LC50: 0.68 mg/l (analytical). Highly toxic by inhalation
Ingestion                Highly toxic by ingestion.

Chronic Effects
Methomyl                 2-year feeding in rats: Feeding levels 0, 50, 100, 200, and 400 ppm; no
                         effect level (NOEL) of 100 ppm based on slight haemolytic anaemia
                         and/or body weight effects observed at the higher dietary
                         concentrations. No compound related neoplastic lesions were observed.
                         2-year feeding in mice: Feeding levels 0, 50, 75 and 200 ppm; no
                         compound related neoplastic or non-neoplastic histologic effects were
                         found at any level. The NOEL was considered to be 50 ppm based on
                         transient haemolytic anaemia and increased mortality at the higher
                         dietary concentrations.
                         2-year feeding in dogs: Feeding levels 0, 50, 100, 400 and 1,000 ppm.
                         The NOEL of 100 ppm was based on haemolytic anaemia and non-
                         neoplastic changes within the kidney and spleen at the higher dietary
                         concentrations. There were no neoplastic effects at any dose.
Reproduction             Three-generation rat reproduction study at dietary rates of 50 and 100
                         ppm showed no adverse effect upon fertility, and no compound related
                         histologic effect. A 2-generation rat study conducted at 75,600 and
                         1,200 ppm in the diet showed similar results.
Teratogenicity           In rats, no embryotoxic or teratogenic effects were observed at levels
                         up to 400 ppm (highest level fed). In rabbits, the highest dietary dose
                         level (equivalent to 100 mg/kg body wt.) did not cause any observed
                         compound related abnormalities.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION (continued)

Mutagenicity               Methomyl was negative in numerous assays to evaluate mutagenicity
                          and genotoxicity, including Ames test, Reverse Mutation Assay,
                          Recessive Lethal Assay, three DNA damage studies, an unscheduled
                          DNA Synthesis Assay, and in vitro and in vivo cygenetic assays.
Acceptable Daily Intake   Based on the 10 ppm no-observable effect level of the 2-year dog
                          feeding study, and utilising a 100 fold safety factor, the US EPA has
                          established an Acceptable Daily Intake of 0.025 mg per kilogram of
                          body weight per day.
Methanol                  Toxic effects that may result from excessive exposure to methanol
                          include visual disturbances or blindness, narcosis and other CNS
                          effects, liver effects, and acidosis.
                          Individuals with pre-existing diseases of the retina or liver may have
                          increased susceptibility to methanol toxicity.
Carcinogen                None of the components in this material is listed by IARC, NTP,
                          OSHA or ACGIH as a carcinogen.
