Odour: Typical solvent odour Major Possible Health Hazards: Long term damage to eyes, Chemical pneumonitis if vomited.
Potential Health Effects Inhalation: The components of the product are of low volatility and no adverse effects are expected from handling the concentrate. In confined spaces, some discomfort may occur due to the presence of some solvent vapour. Breathing in mists or aerosols may produce respiratory irritation, but generally unlikely. The product may constitute a moderate hazard during spraying operations Skin Contact: Acute dermal toxicity has not been determined for this product; based on data available for its components, dermal toxicity is expected to be harmful. Prolonged contact with the concentrate can cause defatting of the skin and may result in dermatitis. The concentrated product may cause slight irritation on contact Eye Contact: Irritating to eyes. It will cause discomfort such as stinging pain, watering and redness of the eyes. Effects may last after exposure has caused, and in severe exposure, long lasting or even permanent effects such as corneal damage can occur.
Ingestion: The concentrate is harmful if swallowed. Amounts swallowed incidental to normal handling procedures and use are not expected to cause injury. However, swallowing of large amounts may cause injury. If aspirated into the lung, e.g. from vomiting, the presence of solvent may result in chemical pneumonitis.

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.
TWA (mg/m3) STEL (mg/m3) ADI (mg/Kg/day) NOEL (mg/Kg/day) Exposure Limits MCPA not set not set 0.01 1.1 Bromoxynil not set not set 0.003 0.003 Dicamba not set not set 0.03 3 TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5 day working week. STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that should not be exceeded for more than 15 minutes and should not be repeated for more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL.
ST ADI means Acceptable Daily Intake and NOEL means No-observable-effect-level. (ADI List 31 Dec 2006) Ventilation: Avoid vapours and provide local exhaust ventilation where necessary.
Eye Protection: To avoid contact with eyes, wear face shield, goggles or safety glasses. Emergency eyewash should be readily accessible.
Skin Protection: Wear impermeable PVC gloves to prevent skin contact. Wear overall and long sleeves to prevent skin contact Respirator: If the product is being used in dusty or confined conditions, use of a mask or respirator may be preferred. Use P2 type canister respirator if required Safety Boots: Safety boots in industrial situations are advised Provision of eye wash facilities and safety shower recommended.
Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or going to toilet, launder protective clothing before re-use or destroy contaminated clothing. Advise laundry of nature of contamination.
Section 10 - Stability and Reactivity Stability: Stable under normal conditions, when stored and handled in accordance with this MSDS.
Conditions to Avoid: Store away from heat or fire Incompatibilities: Avoid strong oxidising agents, zinc, tin, aluminum, cooper and their alloys.
Hazardous Reactions: Reaction of the concentrate with alkaline materials such as caustic soda (and even lime) will liberate dimethylamine vapour. Dimethylamine is moderately toxic, LD50 (Oral, rat) is 700mg/kg and TLV of 10ppm (TWA) has been set. Dimethylamine has a fishy odour. Reaction of the concentrate or spray mix with acids will precipitate solid dicamba and largely deactivate the product and cause blockages in spray equipment, under adverse conditions, the concentrate may react strongly with powerful oxidising agents.
Fire Decomposition: toxic fumes of hydrogen bromide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen cyanide or other compounds of bromine, chlorine and nitrogen.
Polymerisation: Will not spontaneously polymerise Section 11 - Toxicological Information For Bromoxynil octanoate: LD50 Oral (Rat) = 365 mg/kg LD50 Dermal (Rat 2000 mg/kg For Dicamba: LD50 Oral (Rat) = 1707 mg/kg LD50 Dermal (Rat 2000 mg/kg LC50 Inhalation (Rat) 9.6 mg/L4hr For MCPA: LC50 Oral (Rat) 900 – 1160 mg/kg LD50 Oral (mouse) 550 mg/kg LD50 Dermal (Rat 2000 mg/kg LC50 Inhalation (Rat) 6.36 mg/L/4hr Skin Sensitisation: MCPA is a skin sensitiser Subchronic (Target Organ) Effects Weight loss and damage to liver and kidneys may be expected if exposure is excessive.
Reproductive Toxicity: Bromoxynil octanoate has been assigned R63 on the basis of studies, in rats, rabbits and mice which show reduced ossification and increased incidence of supernumerary ribs at doses (range 5-15 mg/kg/day) which are not toxic maternally. Supernumerary ribs are seen in control animals and are often seen in reproductive toxicity studies. The ribs disappear during subsequent development with rats, but not with mice. The significance of supernumerary ribs as an indicator of developmental toxicity and extrapolation to other species remain problematical.
Mutagenicity The weight of evidence indicates that the product does not present a mutagenic risk Section 12 - Ecological Information Environmental Data: Dicamba does not bind to soil particles and is highly soluble in water. It is therefore highly mobile in the soil and may contaminate groundwater.
Do not contaminate dams, waterways or sewers with this product or the containers which have held this product. Spray drift can cause damage, read the label for more information.
Dicamba : Only slightly toxic to birds.
Of low toxicity to fish. LC50 (96hr) for rainbow trout is 135 mg/l When used according to the instructions, dicamba poses little threat to wildlife.
MCPA iso-octyl ester: LC50 (rainbow trout) 1.15mg/L (96 hrs Bromoxynil octanoate: LC50 (96hr) for rainbow trout is 0.041 mg/ Acute Toxicity - Other Organisms: Not toxic to bees. Not toxic to birds
