Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
This is a solid carbamate pesticide. Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard areas and deny entry. Stay upwind, keep out of low areas. Do not touch spilled material, or breathe the vapors, dusts or fumes from burning materials. Do not handle broken packages without protective equipment. Wash away any material that may have contacted the body with soap and water.
Decompostion is increased by aeration, sunlight, alkalinity and higher temperatures.
Incompatible with strong acids and bases, and especially
This is a solid carbamate pesticide. Move container from fire area. Fight fire from maximum distance. Dike fire control water for later disposal; do not scatter the material. Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and special protective clothing.Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire, as the material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty. Use water in flooding quantities as a fog. Use alcohol foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical.
When heated to decomposition, it emits toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides. This is a solid carbamate pesticide. Container may explode in heat of fire.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Blurred vision, miosis, tremor, muscle twitching, convulsions, mental confusion, and coma may occur. Delayed peripheral neuropathy similar to that seen with organophosphates has been described in one case. Dystonic reaction may occur following parenteral injection. Oxamyl produced lower birth weights and smaller litter sizes in rats. <br>No data were available to assess the potential effects of exposure to this agent during pregnancy or lactation.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping may be noted.
Dyspnea, rales, and pulmonary edema may occur.
Avoid any skin contact. See Inhalation.
Do not induce emesis. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Remove contaminated clothing and jewelry. Wash the skin, including hair and nails, vigorously; do repeated soap washings. Discard contaminated clothing.
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
