2. HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION
2.10 Health effects:
The product is a chitin synthetase inhibitor - this enzyme is not present in mammals. There are no specific symptoms of triflumuron toxicity known. The active constituent has very low mammalian toxicity. Triflumuron has been shown in animal tests to be non-carcinogenic, non-teratogenic, and non-mutagenic. Triflumuron (active) is non-irritant to the eyes and mucous membranes.
2.11 First aid:
If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone 131126. I if in eyes, hold open and flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor. If on skin, remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly with soap and water.
2.12 Advice to Doctor:
Systemic toxicity with this product is unlikely. In the event of ingestion apply basic aid, decontamination and symptomatic treatment. Triflumuron is a chitin synthesis inhibitor. As chitin synthetase is not present in mammals the compound does not act on any specific mammalian enzyme system.

4.13 Further Information
4.2 Spills and Disposals
4.21 After spillage/leakage/gas leakage:
Prevent spillage from spreading or entering
waterways and drains. Work from upwind side of spill. Spread impregnated sawdust over spillage, sweep up and place in a sealable container. Avoid breathing the dust. Clean affected area with aqueous detergent and a small amount of water. Absorb this detergent/water with absorbent material. Do not eat, drink or smoke during clean-up operation. All possible steps should be taken to stop the product entering waterways and drains to prevent contamination of aquatic environments.
1) After intended use: Shake and completely empty the contents onto dusting site. Do not dispose of unused chemicals on-site. Break, crush and bury empty containers at a local authority landfill. If not available, bury the containers below 500 mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, vegetation and roots. Empty containers and product should not be burnt. 2) After spill or accident: Dispose of sealed containers at an approved local waste disposal site.
4.3 Fire/Explosion Hazards
4.30 Dangerous Decomposition or Combustion Products
Thermal decomposition: Hazardous polymerisation will not occur. Triflumuron undergoes thermal decomposition above 380 degrees C.
Hazardous decomposition products: If involved in a fire: hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides may be evolved.
Hazardous reactions: Risk of dust explosion - dust explosion possible. Impact sensitivity - >40 joule, ie., not impact sensitive.
4.31 Extinguishing media:
Sprayed water jet, foam, extinguishing powder, C02, sand.
4.32 Further information:
Special firefighting procedures: Fight fire in early stages if safe to do so. Wear respiratory protection. Well ventilated areas - full face mask with combination filter (offers no protection from carbon monoxide). Enclosed premises - respirator with independent air supply.
Contain firefighting water. Do not permit firefighting water to enter drains and waterways if at all possible.
5. OTHER INFORMATION
5.10 Information on toxicity:
LD50, oral, rat: >5000 mg/kg LD50, dermal, rat: >5000 mg/kg Irritation to the skin/rabbit - slightly irritant. Irritation to the mucous membranes/rabbit - non-irritant.
The effects of long term exposure to this formulation are not known. The active constituent has been shown to be non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic in laboratory tests. There are no specific symptoms of triflumuron toxicity.
