3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Causes skin irritation. Mists or sprays are irritating to eyes and respiratory tract. Can decompose at high
temperatures forming toxic gases.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
Prolonged or repeated overexposure to mists may cause mild respiratory irritation. If heated to the point
where Sulphur Dioxide gas is driven off, then this gas is highly irritating to the respiratory tract. Acute
exposure may result in dryness and irritation of the nose and throat, choking, sneezing, coughing and
bronchospasm. Severe overexposure may cause death through systemic acidosis, pulmonary oedema
or from respiratory arrest. Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause impaired lung function,
bronchitis, hacking cough, nasal irritation and discharge, increased fatigue, alteration in the senses of
taste and smell and longer duration of common colds. Dental caries, loss of fillings, gum disorders and
the rapid and painless destruction of teeth may result from overexposure. (3)
