This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The SWA 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. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

section 4 - First Aid Measures: 

General Information:

You should call The Poisons Information Centre if you feel that you may have been poisoned, burned or irritated by this product. The number is 13 1126 from anywhere in Australia (0800 764 766 in New Zealand) and is available at all times. Have this SDS with you when you call.

Inhalation: No first aid measures normally required. However, if inhalation has occurred, and irritation has developed, remove to fresh air and observe until recovered. If irritation becomes painful or persists more than about 30 minutes, seek medical advice.

Skin Contact: Quickly and gently, blot or brush away excess chemical. Wash gently and thoroughly with water (use non-abrasive soap if necessary) for 20 minutes or until chemical is removed. Under running water, remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods (e.g. watchbands and belts). If irritation persists, repeat flushing and obtain medical advice. Completely decontaminate clothing, shoes and leather goods before reuse or discard.

Eye Contact: Quickly and gently blot or brush away product. Immediately flush the contaminated eye(s) with lukewarm, gently flowing water until the product is removed or until a few minutes after irritation has ceased, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water into the unaffected eye or onto the face.

Ingestion: First aid is not generally required. If in doubt, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.

Carbon monoxide poisoning produces headache, weakness, nausea, dizziness, confusion, dimness of vision, disturbance of judgment, and unconsciousness followed by coma and death. Hydrogen cyanide poisoning signs and symptoms are weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, coma, convulsions, and death. Death results from respiratory arrest. Hydrogen cyanide gas acts very rapidly; symptoms and death can both occur quickly.

Polymerisation: This product is unlikely to undergo polymerisation processes.

section 11 - Toxicological Information: 


Acute toxicity: Oxyfluorfen is practically nontoxic by ingestion, with reported oral LD50 values of 5000 mg/kg in both rats and dogs, and 2700 to 5000 mg/kg in mice. The dermal LD50 is greater than 5000 mg/kg in both rats and rabbits, also indicating slight toxicity by this route. It causes no skin irritation in rabbits, no skin sensitization in guinea pigs, and moderate eye irritation in rabbits. However, some formulated products may show severe skin and eye irritant properties, and may be skin sensitizers. The 4-hour inhalation LC50 for the technical product is not available, but that for a formulated product is greater than 22.64 mg/L, indicating practically no toxicity via this route.

Chronic toxicity: Effects on the liver have been observed in long-term feeding studies with rats, mice, and dogs.

Reproductive effects: In a developmental study with rats given doses of 10, 100, or 1000 mg/kg/day by gavage, decreased implantation, increased resorption, and lower foetal survival was seen at the 1000 mg/kg level. Toxic effects on the mothers were also seen at this dose. At 5 mg/kg/day, there was decreased survival of foetuses and decreased maternal and foetal weights. It does not appear likely that Oxyfluorfen will cause reproductive effects in humans at likely levels of exposure.

Teratogenic effects: In a developmental study with rabbits, 30 mg/kg/day, the highest dose tested, produced an increase in fused sternal bones in the foetuses as well as toxic effects on the mothers. These data suggest Oxyfluorfen may have teratogenic effects, but only at very high doses.

Mutagenic effects: Mutagenicity tests on rats, mice and on bacterial cell cultures have produced mixed results. However, unscheduled DNA synthesis assays have been negative. Due to the conflicting results, it is not possible to determine the mutagenic potential of Oxyfluorfen.

Carcinogenic effects: In a 20-month study with mice fed 0.3, 3, or 30 mg/kg/day, doses at and above 3 mg/kg/day produced non-significant increases in both benign and malignant liver tumors in male mice. No increased tumor formation was seen in female mice at any dose. No carcinogenic effects were observed in a 23-year study with rats fed doses 2 mg/kg/day, nor in dogs at doses of 3 mg/kg/day. These data suggest that Oxyfluorfen is not carcinogenic.

Organ toxicity: The liver appears to be the main target organ, based on long-term feeding studies.

Fate in humans and animals: Because Oxyfluorfen is highly hydrophobic, it may have the potential to bioconcentrate in animal fatty tissues.

section 12 - Ecological Information: 

Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment.

Effects on birds: Oxyfluorfen is practically nontoxic to birds; the reported oral LD50 values are greater than 2200 mg/kg in bobwhite quail, and greater than 4000 mg/kg in mallard duck. The dietary 8-day dietary LC50 values are greater than 5000 ppm in bobwhite quail, and 4000 ppm in mallard ducks. Dietary concentrations as high as 100 ppm had no effect on reproduction in mallards or bobwhite quail.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Oxyfluorfen is highly toxic to aquatic invertebrates, freshwater clams, oysters, aquatic plants, and fish. The reported 96-hour LC50 values are 200 μg/L in bluegill sunfish, 410 μg/L in rainbow trout, 400 μg/L in channel catfish, 150 μg/L in fathead minnow, and 32 μg/L in grass shrimp and oysters. Its 96-hour LC50 in freshwater clams is 10 μg/L. The 96-hour LC50 for the product Goal 2E in Daphnia magna, a small freshwater crustacean, is 1500 μg/L. Oxyfluorfen accumulated up to 13 mg/kg (13,000 μg/kg) in bluegill sunfish exposed to 10μg/L for 40 days. This represents a bioconcentration factor (BCF) of 1300. The BCF in channel catfish was 700 to 5000 in one 30-day study. These results indicate a low to moderate potential for bioaccumulation in aquatic species.

Effects on other organisms: Oxyfluorfen is nontoxic to honeybees, with a reported oral LC50 of greater than 10,000 ppm.

Environmental Fate:

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Oxyfluorfen is moderately persistent in most soil environments, with a representative field half-life of about 30 to 40 days. Oxyfluorfen is not subject to microbial degradation or hydrolysis. The main mechanism of degradation in soils may be photodegradation and evaporation/codistillation in moist soils. In laboratory studies, its soil half-life was 6 months, indicating very low rates of microbial degradation. Oxyfluorfen is very well-sorbed to most soils. Soil binding is highest in soils with high organic matter and clay content. Once Oxyfluorfen is adsorbed to soil particles, it is not readily removed. It is practically insoluble in water, and therefore is unlikely to be appreciably mobile in most instances, unless the sorptive capacity of the soil is exceeded. Oxyfluorfen did not leach below 10cm in any soil except sand.

Breakdown in water: In water, Oxyfluorfen is rapidly decomposed by light. Because Oxyfluorfen is nearly insoluble in water and has a tendency to adsorb to soil, it will be sorbed to suspended particles or sediments.

Breakdown in vegetation: There is very little movement of Oxyfluorfen within treated plants. It is not readily metabolized by plants, but since it is not readily taken up by roots, residues in plants are generally very low. Residues of Oxyfluorfen accumulated in carrots and oats grown on previously treated fields, but not in cotton or lettuce.
