2. COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
IMMEDIATE CONCERNS: - Amber liquid with a faint, mild petroleum odor.
- Moderately combustible. May support combustion if heated above the product'sflash point ( (see 'Fire Fighting Measures' in Section 5).).
- Thermal decomposition and burning may form toxic by-products.
- For large exposures or fire, wear personal protective equipment.
- Highly toxic to fish and aquatic organisms. Keep out of drains and watercourses.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS:
Effects from overexposure result from swallowing or
coming into contact with the skin or eyes. Symptoms of overexposure include increased
hypersensitivity to touch and sound, tremors and convulsions. Contact with permethrin may produce
skin sensations such as numbing, burning or tingling. These skin sensations are reversible and usually
subside within 12 hours.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED:
None presently known.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation occurs and persists, obtain
Wash with plenty of soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation occurs and
Rinse mouth with water. Dilute by giving 1 or 2 glasses of water. Do not
induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. See a medical
Remove to fresh air. If breathing difficulty or discomfort occurs and
persists, obtain medical attention.
NOTES TO MEDICAL DOCTOR:
This product has low oral, dermal and inhalation
toxicity. It is minimally irritating to the eyes and slightly irritating to the skin. The low oral
toxicity of the product compared to the risk of pneumonitis from aspiration of stoddard
solvents suggests that vomiting should not be induced. Consideration should be given to gastric
lavage with an endotracheal tube in place. Activated charcoal and a cathartic are recommended
and nervous stimulation should be controlled with a sedative, e.g., barbiturates. Treatment is
otherwise controlled removal of exposure followed by symptomatic and supportive care.
Reversible skin sensations (paresthesia) may occur and ordinary skin salves have been found
useful in reducing discomfort. Treatment is otherwise controlled removal of exposure followed
by symptomatic and supportive care.

Keep material out of lakes, streams, ponds and sewer drains. Dike to confine spill and absorbwith a non-combustible absorbent such as clay, sand or soil. Vacuum, shovel or pump wasteinto a drum and label contents for disposal.
To clean and neutralize spill area, tools and equipment, wash with a suitable solution (i.e.,bleach or caustic/soda ash and either ethylene glycol or an appropriate alcohol, i.e., methanol,ethanol or isopropanol). Follow this by washing with a strong soap and water solution. Absorbas above, any excess liquid and add to the drums of waste already collected. Repeat if
necessary. Dispose of drummed waste according to the method outlined in Section 13,"Disposal Considerations".
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Do not use or
store near heat, open flame or hot surfaces. Store in original containers only. Store at
temperatures above 40°F (5°C). If crystals form, warm to room temperature 70°F (21°C) by
room heating only for 24-48 hours, and shake occasionally until crystals dissolve and product
appears uniform. Do not use external source of heat for warming container. Keep out of reach
of children and animals. Do not contaminate other pesticides, fertilizers, water, food or feed by
storage or disposal.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Use local exhaust at all process locations where vapor or
mist may be emitted. Ventilate all transport vehicles prior to unloading.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
EYES AND FACE: For splash, mist or spray exposure, wear chemical protective goggles ora face shield.
RESPIRATORY: For splash, mist or spray exposure wear, as a minimum, a properly fittedhalf-face or full-face air-purifying respirator which is approved for pesticides (U.S.
NIOSH/MSHA, EU CEN or comparable certification organization). Respirator use andselection must be based on airborne concentrations.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: Depending upon concentrations encountered, wear coverallsor long-sleeved uniform and head covering. For larger exposures as in the case of spills, wearfull body cover barrier suit, such as a PVC suit. Leather items - such as shoes, belts andwatchbands - that become contaminated should be removed and destroyed. Launder all workclothing before reuse (separately from household laundry).
WORK HYGIENIC PRACTICES:
Clean water should be available for washing in
case of eye or skin contamination. Wash skin prior to eating, drinking or using tobacco.
Shower at the end of the workday.
GLOVES:Wear chemical protective gloves made of materials such as nitrile, neoprene or Viton® brand.
Thoroughly wash the outside of gloves with soap and water prior to removal. Inspect regularlyfor leaks.
Personal protective recommendations for mixing or applying this product are
prescribed on the product label. Information stated above provides useful, additional guidance for
individuals whose use or handling of this product is not guided by the product label.

ACUTE EFFECTS FROM OVEREXPOSURE:
This product has low oral, dermal
and inhalation toxicity. It is minimally irritating to the eyes and slightly irritating to the skin.
Experience to date indicates that contact with permethrin has rarely produced skin sensationssuch as numbing, burning or tingling. These skin sensations are reversible and usually subsidewithin 12 hours. Large toxic doses, of the formulated product, administered to laboratoryanimals have produced central nervous system effects with symptoms that includehypersensitivity to touch and sound, tremors, and clonic convulsions. Overexposure to animalsvia inhalation has also produced symptoms such as squinting eyes, irregular and rattlingbreathing and ataxia. Inhalation of stoddard solvent vapors may cause dizziness, disturbances invision, drowsiness, respiratory irritation, and eye, skin and mucous membrane irritation.
Vomiting after ingestion of this product may cause aspiration of stoddard solvents into thelungs which may result in fatal pulmonary edema.
CHRONIC EFFECTS FROM OVEREXPOSURE:
No data available for the
formulation. In studies with laboratory animals, permethrin did not cause reproductive toxicity
or teratogenicity. Analysis of chronic feeding studies in both mice and rats with permethrin
resulted in the conclusion that permethrin's potential for induction of oncogenicity in
experimental animals is low and that the likelihood of oncogenic effects in humans is
nonexistent or extremely low. Long term feeding studies in animals resulted in increased liver
and kidney weights, induction of the liver microsomal drug metabolizing enzyme system, and
histopathological changes in the lungs and liver. An overall absence of genotoxicity has been
demonstrated in mutagenicity testing with permethrin. Chronic exposure to stoddard solvents
may cause headaches, dizziness, loss of sensations or feelings, and liver and kidney damage.
12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Unless otherwise indicated, the data presented below are for the active ingredient.
In soil, permethrin is stable over a wide range of pH
values. When applied at agricultural use rates, permethrin has a moderate rate of degradation in
soil. At termiticidal use rates, permethrin degrades at a slower rate which is governed by soil
characteristics. Due to its high affinity for organic matter (Koc = 86,000), there is little
potential for movement in soil or entry into ground water. Permethrin has a Log Pow of 6.1,
but a low potential to bioconcentrate (BCF = 500) due to the ease with which it is metabolized.
Permethrin is highly toxic to fish
(LC50 = 0.5 µg/L to 315 µg/L) and aquatic arthropods (LC50 = 0.02 µg/L to 7.6 µg/L).
Marine species are often more sensitive than the freshwater species. Bacteria, algae, mollusks
and amphibians are much more tolerant of permethrin than the fish and arthropods. Care shouldbe taken to avoid contamination of the aquatic environment. Permethrin is slightly toxic to birdsand oral LD50 values are greater than 3600 mg/kg. Longer dietary studies showed thatconcentrations of up to 500 ppm in the diet had no effect on bird reproduction.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Open dumping or burning of this material or its packaging is
prohibited. If spilled material cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, an
acceptable method of disposal is to incinerate in accordance with local, state and national
environmental laws, rules, standards and regulations. However, because acceptable methods of
disposal may vary by location, and regulatory requirements may change, the appropriate
agencies should be contacted prior to disposal.
Non-returnable containers which held this material should be
cleaned, prior to disposal, by triple rinsing. Containers which held this material may be cleaned
by being triple-rinsed, and recycled, with the rinsate being incinerated. Do not cut or weld
metal containers. Vapors that form may create an explosion hazard.
