SECTION 2 - COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS Component Lambda-cyhalothrin Percentage 97 %

SECTION 3 - IDENTIFICATION OF HAZARDS Major Health Hazards: The onset of symptoms varies depending upon such factors as the route of absorption and quantity involved. In patients with occupational poisoning, skin symptoms usually develop within 4-6 hours after exposure, with systemic symptoms occurring as late as 48 hours after exposure. Paraesthesia of the facial skin can develop approximately 30 minutes after exposure and does not usually last beyond 24 hours when exposure is terminated. Following ingestion, the initial symptoms involve the gastrointestinal tract, developing 10-60 minutes after exposure. Patients suffering from acute oral poisoning usually develop prominent digestive symptoms such as epigastric pain, nausea and vomiting. MSDS (LAMBDA-CYHALOTHRIN TECH.) Page 1 of 7

Severely poisoned patients may have frequent convulsive attacks, coma, or pulmonary oedema. The prognosis is good if treated, with usually full recovery even in severely poisoned patients. (The hospitalisation period is usually longer than 4 weeks). Poisoning symptoms: Symptoms that may arise if the product is mishandled and overexposure occurs are nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, ataxia, unsteady gait, hyperexcitability, salivation, tremors and incontinence. Larger doses may cause convulsions and loss of consciousness. If the victim is uncoordinated there is a greater likelihood of vomit entering the lungs and causing subsequent complications. Aspiration pneuomonia (inflammation of the lung) may result. SECTION 4- FIRST AID MEASURES In case of poisoning by any exposure route contact a doctor or Poisons Information Center. Swallowed: Rinse mouth with water and give water to drink. Do not induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical assistance. Eye: If product gets in eyes wash it out immediately with copious quantities of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical advice. Skin: If skin contact occurs remove contaminated clothing and wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and water. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use. The active ingredient may be absorbed through the skin with resultant toxic effects. Seek immediate medical advice. Inhaled: Move person to fresh air and keep at rest until recovered. Remove any contamined clothing and loosen remaining clothing. Allow patient to assume most comfortable position and keep warm. If breathing labored and patient cyanotic (blue) ensure airways are clear and have qualified person give oxygen through a face mask. If breathing has stopped, apply artificial respiration at once. In event of cardiac arrest, apply external cardiac massage. Seek medical attention. Advice to doctor: No specific antidote exists. Treat symptomatically.

SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES Extinguishing Media: carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam, and water fog. Special Fire fighting procedures: If a significant quantity of this product is involved in a fire, call the fire brigade. When fighting fires involving significant quantities of this product, wear safety boots, non-flammable overalls, gloves, hat, goggles and respirator. All skin areas should be covered. Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards: Fire decomposition products from this product may form toxic mixtures in confined spaces. Vapors from this product are heavier than air and may accumulate in sumps, pits and other low-lying spaces, forming potentially explosive mixtures. They may also flash back considerable distances. Stability: This product is unlikely to spontaneously decompose. Fire Decomposition: Carbon dioxide, and if combustion is incomplete, carbon monoxide and smoke. Water. Carbon monoxide poisoning produces headache, weakness, nausea, dizziness, confusion, dimness of vision, disturbance of judgment, and unconsciousness followed by coma and death SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Avoid contact with the spilled material or contaminated surfaces. Do not smoke, eat or drink during the cleanup process. Personnel involved in cleanup should wear full body protective clothing and equipment as described in Section 8 ­ PERSONAL PROTECTION. Keep people and animals away. Consider evacuation and obtain assistance from emergency services if needed. Prevent spilled material from entering drains or watercourses. Contain spill and sweep up carefully. Avoid creating dust. Collect and store in recovery drums. Clean floor with detergent and water, absorbing wash water with clay granules and transfer this to the drum. Seal and label drums for safe disposal. Deal with all spillages immediately. If contamination of drains, streams, watercourses, etc. is unavoidable, warn the local water authority. Decontaminate tools, equipment and clothing used in the cleanup. Dispose of any heavily soiled clothing, placing it in disposal drum.

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE Store in cool, clean, ventilated, fireproof storage area. Keep away from heat, spark, open flame and incompatible materials. (Strong oxidizing agents). Protect containers against physical damage. SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION Ventilation: No special ventilation requirements are normally necessary for this product. However make sure that the work environment remains clean and that dusts and vapours are minimised. Eye Protection: Eye protection such as protective glasses or goggles is recommended when product is being used. Skin Protection: Prevent skin contact by wearing impervious gloves, clothes and, preferably, apron. Make sure that all skin areas are covered. See below for suitable material types. Protective Material Types: We suggest that protective clothing be made from rubber, PVC. Respirator: Usually, no respirator is necessary when using this product. Safety deluge showers should be provided near to where this product is being used. SECTION 9 - PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES: Appearance: Dark brown/green solid.

: EPA II : Non-mutagenic in the Ames test. : No specific antidote is known. Apply symptomatic therapy. Lambda-cyhalothrin technical has been extensively tested in mammals and in test-tube systems. No evidence of mutagenic, carcinogenic, neurotoxic or teratogenic effects was obtained. A three-generation reproductive study in rats revealed minor reproductive effects at the highest dose only (100 mg/kg) (reduction in litter size and weight gain only). The aromatic hydrocarbon solvent may cause central nervous system depression and narcosis.

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION Lambda-cyhalothrin is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Contamination of waterways should be strictly avoided. DO NOT apply under weather conditions or from spraying equipment, which could be expected to cause spray to drift onto adjacent areas, particularly streams, rivers or other waterbodies. Rainbow Trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss , LC50 (96 h) = 0.36 µg/L

Sheephead minnow LC50 (96 h) = 0.81 µg/L Bluegill Sunfish, LC50 (96 h) = 0.21 µg/L Water Flea, Daphnia magna, LC50 (48 h) = 0.36 µg/L Lambda-cyhalothrin is very toxic to bees (oral LD50 = 38 ng/bee, contact LD50 = 909 ng/bee) and practically non-toxic to birds (mallard duck: oral LD50 = >3950 mg/kg; bobwhite quail: dietary 3d LD50 = >7530 mg/kg). Lambda-cyhalothrin, in common with other synthetic pyrethroids, has a high LogPOW of 7. However, since the compound is insoluble in water (thus limiting exposures to aquatic species) and is rapidly metabolized in animal systems the risk of bioaccumulation in an aquatic species is low. Leaching into ground water through a range of soil types is negligible. In soil it reportedly has a half-life of up to 12 weeks. SECTION 13 - DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS


Pesticide wastes are toxic and hazardous.

Dispose of in accordance with

applicable and local laws and regulations. Do not discharge or pour into soil, drainage system or bodies of water.

CONTAINER: Triple rinse (or equivalent). Then offer for recycling or reconditioning, or

puncture and dispose of in a sanitary landfill, or incineration, or if allowed by state and local authorities, by burning (plastic containers). If burned, stay out of smoke. SECTION 14 - TRANSPORT INFORMATION
