SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
TOXIC DOSE - LD50 Not Available
CARCINOGENICITY No evidence of carcinogenic properties
MUTAGENICITY/TERATOGENICITY Chronic exposure is associated with subtle effects to the male reproductive system and, if exposed, the developing fetus.
TOXICOLOGICAL FINDINGS Also harmful in contact with skin. Particular care must be exercised when machining and creating dust or particles. Human exposure to lead, both acutely and chronically, is associated with well defined adverse effects to health. The target organs are blood, kidney and nervous system for acute exposure to toxic amounts. Lead accumulates in exposed individuals and approximately 90% of the absorbed dose remains deposited in the bone. Removal from exposure can reverse effects to the blood, male reproductive system, and to a limited extent the central nervous system.
SECTION 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
The following applies to inorganic fluorides in general: biological effects: fish: L idus LC50 660mg/l; bacteria:Ps putida toxic from 231 mg/l up; algae: Sc quadricauda toxic from 249mg/l up; protozoa:E.sulcatum toxic from 101mg/l up; U parduczi toxic from 71mg/l up (all values as NaF). Hazard to drinking water.
SECTION 13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
DISPOSAL METHODS: Chemical residues are generally classified as special waste, and are covered by regulations which vary according to location. Contact your local waste disposal authority for advice, or pass to a chemical disposal company.
