Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long term adverse effects in the Contains permethrin. May cause allergic reaction. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Formulation Type:
Dustable powder containing permethrin (0.488%) on a talc base.
Permethrin 0.488 Xn N; R20/22, 43, 50/53 52645-53-1 258-067-9

In some individuals a characteristic and reversible skin irritation effect characteristic of natural pyrethrins may be experienced. Accidental over exposure may result in Contact:
Contact: Possible
Unlikely occupational hazard. Deliberate ingestion could lead to neurological signs and symptoms such as ataxia, tremors or convulsions. Inhalation:
Additional medical guidance is available to doctors from the National Poisons Information Service. Eye contact – rinse with water thoroughly, If irritation persists seek medical advice. Skin contact – wash with soap and water. Remove and wash contaminated clothing. Inhalation – remove to fresh air. If unwell seek medical advice. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Extinguish, preferably with foam, CO2, dry powder, water spray or water fog. Contain contaminated run-off. Additional Information:
Under intense heat, product decomposition may release hazardous nitrogen and carbon oxides. Special Protective Equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing in confined __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Date of Issue: February 2004 Revision: June 2009 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Personal Precautions:
Do not breathe dust. Do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands and exposed skin Environmental precautions:
Report to local water plc immediately if spillage enters drains and the Environment Agency or Scottish Environment Protection Agency if it enters surface or ground waters. Spillages:
Sweep up any spillage carefully to minimise dust and transfer to heavy duty plastic bags or drums and keep safe before disposal. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Store in original containers, tightly closed in a secure, well ventilated, cool but frost-free, dry area. Store clear of foodstuffs. Make arrangements for containment of accidental spillage. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Occupational exposure standards have been established (EH40) for talc, see PERSONAL PROTECTION
regulatory information for details. No specific personal protective equipment assigned. Normal good hygiene standards should be observed. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Permethrin is of low mammalian toxicity and is readily metabolised and excreted INFORMATION
Acute toxicity for permethrin LD50 oral rat 7500 mg/kg LD50 dermal rat > 5100 mg/kg Technical permethrin is an eye and skin irritant. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Date of Issue: February 2004 Revision: June 2009 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mobility: Studies to investigate the leaching potential of permethrin and its degradates showed that very little downward movement occurs in soil. Permethrin in the aquatic environment absorbs to vegetation and hydrosoil. Persistence and degradability: Permethrin degradation in soil has a half-life of 28 days or less. The trans-isomer degrades more rapidly than the cis-isomer, with ester cleavage being the major degradative pathway. Permethrin disappears rapidly from the aqueous environment, in 6-24 hours from ponds and streams and 7 days from pond sediment. In water and on soil surfaces permethrin is photodegraded by sunghligt. Ester cleavage and cis-trans interconversion are the major reactions. The degradative processes which occur in the environment lead to less toxic products. Bioaccumulative potential: Bioaccumulation of permethrin in mammals and aquatic organisms is not expected. Ecotoxicity: Permethrin is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Measured 96 hr LC50 in fish ranges from 0.62-314 µg/litre on a flow through test and 3.2-5.7µg/litre in a static test. Permethrin has a very low toxicity to mammals and birds. However permethrin is very toxic to bees, with a 24 hr measured topical LD50 of 0.029 µg/bee. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ 13.
