Hazards and Protection.
Store in well-ventilated area, above freezing.
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 rubber gloves and goggles when handling.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water. Water spill: Use natural barriers or oil spill control booms to limit spill travel. Use natural deep water pockets, excavated lagoons, or sand bag barriers to trap material at bottom. Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Indefinitely stable, insensitive to light or heat stable under normal storage conditions. Hydrolyzed by strong acids and alkalis.
Incompatible with strong acids and bases, and especially
When heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides.
Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.) Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Use alcohol foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Exposure to thiram or mbdt-carb (based on animal studies) may cause weakness, ataxia, ascending paralysis and hypothermia. Peripheral neuropathy (pain, numbness and weakness of the extremities) has been noted following exposure to thiuram (the ethyl analog of thiram). No adverse reproductive effects (testicular parameters) in male mice were observed following methyl thiophanate doses up to 1000 mg/kg orally for 5 consecutive days (Traina et al, 1998). Maternal toxicity was evident in female rats.
Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may occur.
Respiratory failure, requiring ventilatory support, has been reported following ingestions.
Exposure to dusts, sprays, solutions, wettable powder suspensions or emulsions of these agents may lead to skin and mucous membrane irritation.
Ipecac induced vomiting is not recommended because of the potential for cns depression and seizures. Consider after ingestion of a potentially life-threatening amount of poison if it can be performed soon after ingestion (generally within 1 hour). Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents. Intravenous fluids may be useful in restoring extracellular fluid volume following severe vomiting and diarrhea. Oxygen therapy is effective in relieving the distress of antabuse-like reactions rarely associated with exposure to thiram and possibly the mbdt-carb compounds. No specific antidotes are available for poisoning by these compounds. 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 wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
