Exposure at low levels may result in death. Effects may be delayed.<BR>Chronic effects - Skin sensitization and dermatitis. May have effects on the perpheral nervous system, skin, mucous membranes and liver, resulting in neuropathy, pigmemtation disorders, perforation of the nasal septum and cirrhosis. Carcinogenic to huans.
May be absorbed through the skin.
Seek medical assistance.
