Effects
Ingestion can be fatal. May kill or cause severe damage to mucous membranes, burns to the mouth,
throat, oesophagus and stomach due to corrosive effect. Ingestion can result in abdominal pain.
Severe irritation and burns due to corrosive effect. Contact can cause corneal burns. Permanent eye
damage, including loss of sight may occur.
Highly corrosive to skin. May cause irritation and severe burns with scarring.
Irritation of the respiratory tract due to fumes when heated. Severe lung damage and poisoning is a
possibility.
Prolonged exposure to mists and vapours can cause erosion of teeth, chronic irritation of eyes, nose
nd
rd
and throat, and chronic inflammation of airways. Can cause 2 and 3 degree burns of skin on contact
and is very injurious to the eyes.
