SECTION 6 TOXICITY DATA
Acute effects of over exposure when :

In contact with skin Irritant - after prolonged contact with skin produces sores and
possible dermatitis.

In contact with eyes : Irritates immediately and could cause severe damage which could lead
to permanent visual defects or even total loss of vision.
