Inhalation: No first aid measures normally required. However, if inhalation has occurred, and irritation has developed,
remove to fresh air and observe until recovered. If irritation becomes painful or persists more than about 30 minutes,
seek medical advice.

non-abrasive soap if necessary) for 5 minutes or until product is removed.
Eye Contact: Gently blot or brush product away. Flush contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water until
the product is removed, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Obtain medical advice if irritation becomes painful or lasts
more than a few minutes.
Ingestion: First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.
Fire and Explosion Hazards: There is no risk of an explosion from this product under normal circumstances if it is
involved in a fire. Only small quantities of decomposition products are expected from this products at temperatures
normally achieved in a fire. Fire decomposition products from this product may be toxic if inhaled. Take appropriateprotective measures.
Extinguishing Media: Not Combustible. Use extinguishing media suited to burning materials.
Flash point:
Upper Flammability Limit: Does not burn.
Lower Flammability Limit: Does not burn.
Autoignition temperature: Does not burn.
Flammability Class:
Accidental release: Minor spills do not normally need any special clean-up measures. In the event of a major spill,
prevent spillage from entering drains or water courses. Wear protective clothing including face shield and gloves. Seeabove under Personal Protection regarding Australian Standards relating to personal protective equipment. Stop leakand contain spill.
Sweep up and shovel or collect recoverable product into labelled containers for recycling or salvage, and dispose ofpromptly. Consider vacuuming if appropriate. Recycle containers wherever possible after careful cleaning. After spills,wash area preventing run-off from entering drains. If a significant quantity of material enters drains, advise emergencyservices. This material may be suitable for approved landfill. Ensure legality of disposal by consulting regulations prior to disposal. Launder clothing before storage or re-use.
Handling: Keep exposure to a minimum, and minimise the quantities kept in work areas. Check Section 8 of this MSDS
for details of personal protective measures, and make sure that those measures are followed.
Storage: Store in the closed original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. Check
packaging - there may be further storage instructions on the label.
The following Australian Standards will provide general advice regarding safety clothing and equipment:
Respiratory equipment: AS/NZS 1715, Protective Gloves: AS 2161, Industrial Clothing: AS2919, Industrial Eye
Protection: AS1336 and AS/NZS 1337, Occupational Protective Footwear: AS/NZS2210.
Exposure Limits
Exposure limits have not been established by NOHSC for any of the significant ingredients in this product.
The ADI for permethrin is set at 0.05mg/kg/day. The corresponding NOEL is set at 5mg/kg/day. ADI means Acceptable Daily Intake and NOEL means No-observable-effect-level. Values taken from Australian ADI List, Dec 2002.
No special ventilation requirements are normally necessary for this product.
Eye Protection: Eye protection such as protective glasses is recommended when product is being used.
Skin Protection: Minimise skin contact by wearing gloves and overalls.

Freezing/Melting Point:
No specific data. Expected to be low at 100°C.

Reactivity: This product is unlikely to react or decompose under normal storage conditions. However, if you have any
doubts, contact the supplier for advice on shelf life properties.
Conditions to Avoid: Store in the closed original container in a dry, ventilated area out of direct sunlight.
Incompatibilities: No particular incompatibilities.
Fire Decomposition: Only small quantities of decomposition products are expected at temperatures normally
achieved in a fire. Carbon dioxide, and if combustion is incomplete, carbon monoxide and smoke.
Polymerisation: This product is unlikely to undergo polymerisation processes.
Toxicity: Acute toxicity: Permethrin is harmful to non-harmful via the oral route, with a reported LD50 for technical
permethrin in rats of greater than 5000 mg/kg. Via the dermal route, it is not harmful, with a reported dermal LD50 in rats of over 5000 mg/kg, and in rabbits of greater 2000 mg/kg. The toxicity of permethrin is dependent on the ratio ofthe isomers present; the cis-isomer being more toxic.
Chronic toxicity: No adverse effects were observed in dogs fed permethrin at doses of 5 mg/kg/day for 90 days. Rats
fed 150 mg/kg/day for 6 months showed a slight increase in liver weights. Very low levels of permethrin in the diet of
chickens (0.1 ppm for 3 to 6 weeks after hatching) have been reported to suppress immune system activity.
Teratogenic effects: Permethrin is reported to show no teratogenic activity.
Mutagenic effects: Permethrin is reported to show no mutagenic activity.
Carcinogenic effects: None reported.
Fate in humans and animals: Permethrin is efficiently metabolized by mammalian livers. Breakdown products, or
"metabolites," of permethrin are quickly excreted and do not persist significantly in body tissues. When permethrin isadministered orally to rats, it is rapidly metabolized and almost completely eliminated from the body in a few days.
Only 3 to 6% of the original dose was excreted unchanged in the faeces of experimental animals. Permethrin maypersist in fatty tissues. Permethrin does not block, or inhibit, cholinesterase enzymes.
Effects on birds: Permethrin is practically non-toxic to birds. The oral LD50 for a permethrin formulation is greater than
9900 mg/kg in mallard ducks, greater than 13,500 mg/kg in pheasants, and greater than 15,500 mg/kg in quail.
Effects on aquatic organisms: Aquatic ecosystems are vulnerable to the impact of permethrin.
Effects on other organisms: Permethrin is toxic to bees.
Environmental Fate:
Breakdown in soil and groundwater:
Permethrin is of low to moderate persistence in the soil environment, with
reported half-lives of 30 to 38 days. Permethrin is readily broken down, or degraded, in most soils. Soil micro-
organisms play a large role in the degradation of permethrin. Because permethrin binds very strongly to soil particles
and is nearly insoluble in water, it is not expected to leach or to contaminate groundwater.
Breakdown in water: The results of one study near estuarine areas showed that permethrin had a half-life of less than
2.5 days. When exposed to sunlight, the half-life was 4.6 days. Permethrin degrades rapidly in water. There was a
gradual loss of toxicity after it aged for 48 hours in sunlight at 0.05 mg/L in water.
Breakdown in vegetation: Permethrin is not phytotoxic, or poisonous, to most plants. No incompatibility has been
observed with permethrin on cultivated plants.
Disposal: Instructions concerning the disposal of this product and its containers are given on the product label. These
should be carefully followed.
ADG Code: This product is not a Dangerous Good. No special transport conditions necessary.
AICS: All of the significant ingredients in this formulation are to be found in the public AICS Database.
