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 11 - Toxicological Information: 

Toxicity: Acute toxicity: Thiram is harmful by ingestion and inhalation and by dermal absorption. Acute exposure in humans may cause headaches, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, diarrhoea, and other gastrointestinal complaints. In rats and mice, large doses of Thiram produced muscle incoordination, hyperactivity followed by inactivity, loss of muscular tone, laboured breathing, and convulsions. Most animals died within 2 to 7 days. Thiram is irritating to the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. It is a skin sensitizer. Symptoms of acute inhalation exposure to Thiram include itching, scratchy throat, hoarseness, sneezing, coughing, inflammation of the nose or throat, bronchitis, dizziness, headache, fatigue, nausea, diarrhoea, and other gastrointestinal complaints. Persons with chronic respiratory or skin disease are at increased risk from exposure to Thiram. Ingestion of Thiram and alcohol together may cause stomach pains, nausea, vomiting, headache, slight fever, and possible dermatitis. Workers exposed to Thiram during application or mixing operations within 24 hours of moderate alcohol consumption have been hospitalized with symptoms. The 4-hour inhalation LC50 for Thiram is greater than 500 mg/L in rats. Reported oral LD50 values for Thiram are 620 to over 1900 mg/kg in rats; 1500 to 2000 mg/kg in mice; and 210 mg/kg in rabbits. The dermal LD50 is greater than 1000 mg/kg in rabbits and in rats.
Chronic toxicity: Symptoms of chronic exposure to Thiram in humans include drowsiness, confusion, loss of sex drive, incoordination, slurred speech, and weakness, in addition to those due to acute exposure. Repeated or prolonged exposure to Thiram can also cause allergic reactions such as dermatitis, watery eyes, sensitivity to light, and conjunctivitis. Except for the occurrence of allergic reactions, harmful chronic effects from Thiram have been observed in test animals only at very high doses. In one study, a dietary dose of 125 mg/kg/day Thiram was fatal to all rats within 17 weeks. Oral doses of about 49 mg/kg/day to rats for 2 years produced weakness, muscle incoordination, and paralysis of the hind legs. Rats fed 52 to 67 mg/kg/day for 80 weeks exhibited hair loss, and paralysis and atrophy of the hind legs. Symptoms of muscle incoordination and paralysis from Thiram poisoning have been shown to be associated with degeneration of nerves in the lower lumbar and pelvic regions. Day-old white leghorn chicks fed 30 and 60 ppm for 6 weeks exhibited bone malformations. At doses of about 10% of the LD50 for 15 days, Thiram reduced blood platelet and white blood cell counts, suppressed blood formation, and slowed blood coagulation in rabbits.
Reproductive effects: Very high oral doses of approximately 1200 mg/kg/day Thiram to mice on days 6 to 17 of pregnancy caused resorption of embryos and retarded foetal development. In another study, doses of 132 mg/kg/day for 13 weeks produced infertility in male mice, while doses of 96 mg/kg/day for 14 days delayed the oestrous cycle in females. The feeding of 50 mg/kg/day Thiram from day 16 of pregnancy to 21 days after birth caused reduced growth and survival of the pups. Pups that were transferred to untreated dams at birth remained healthy, while pups transferred from untreated to treated dams showed toxic effects. These data suggest that reproductive effects occur at high doses not likely to be experienced by humans.
Teratogenic effects: Cleft palate, wavy ribs, and curved long leg bones were observed in the offspring of mice that ingested very high Thiram doses of 1200 mg/kg/day on days 6 to 17 of pregnancy. Maternal doses of 125 mg/kg/day Thiram were teratogenic in hamsters, causing incomplete formation of the skull and spine, fused ribs, abnormalities of the legs, heart, great vessels, and kidneys. Developmental toxicity was observed in a three-generation study of rats fed 5.0 mg/kg/day. These data suggest that high doses are required to cause teratatogenic effects.
Mutagenic effects: Thiram has been found to be mutagenic in some test organisms but not in others. Thus, the evidence is inconclusive.
Carcinogenic effects: When administered to mice at the highest dose possible, Thiram was not carcinogenic. Dietary levels as high as 125 mg/kg/day for 2 years did not cause tumours in rats. These data indicate that Thiram is not carcinogenic.
Organ toxicity: Studies have shown evidence of damage to the liver by Thiram in the form of decreased liver enzyme activity and increased liver weight. Thiram may also cause damage to the nervous system, blood, and kidneys.
Fate in humans and animals: In the body, carbon disulfide is formed from the breakdown of Thiram and does contribute to the toxicity of Thiram to the liver. Thiram is not a member of the ethylene(bis)dithiocarbamate (EBDC) chemical family, and thus it should not generate ethylene thiourea (ETU).

Potential Health Effects

Persons sensitised to Thiram should avoid contact with this product.
Inhalation
Short term exposure: Significant inhalation exposure is considered to be unlikely. Available data shows that this product is harmful, but symptoms are not available. In addition product is an inhalation irritant. Symptoms may include headache, irritation of nose and throat and increased secretion of mucous in the nose and throat. Other symptoms may also become evident, but they should disappear after exposure has ceased.
Skin Contact:
Short term exposure: Classified as a potential sensitiser by skin contact. Exposure to a skin sensitiser, once sensitisation has occurred, may manifest itself as skin rash or inflammation, and in some individuals this reaction can be severe. However product is unlikely to cause any discomfort in normal use.
Eye Contact:
Short term exposure: Exposure via eyes is considered to be unlikely. This product is an eye irritant. Symptoms may include stinging and reddening of eyes and watering which may become copious. Other symptoms may also become evident. If exposure is brief, symptoms should disappear once exposure has ceased. However, lengthy exposure or delayed treatment may cause permanent damage.
Ingestion:
Short term exposure: Significant oral exposure is considered to be unlikely. Available data shows that this product is harmful, but symptoms are not available. This product is unlikely to cause any irritation problems in the short or long term.
Carcinogen Status:
SWA: No significant ingredient is classified as carcinogenic by SWA.
NTP: No significant ingredient is classified as carcinogenic by NTP.
IARC: Thiram is Class 3 - unclassifiable as to carcinogenicity to humans. See the IARC website for further details. A web address has not been provided as addresses frequently change.

 

section 12 - Ecological Information: 

Effects on birds: Thiram is practically nontoxic to birds. The reported dietary LC50 of Thiram in Japanese quail is greater that 5000 ppm. Reported dietary LC50 values in pheasants and mallard ducks are 2800 ppm and 673 ppm, respectively. The LD50 for the compound in red-winged blackbirds is greater than 100 mg/kg.
Effects on aquatic organisms: Thiram is highly toxic to fish. The LC50 for the compound is 0.23 mg/L in bluegill sunfish, 0.13 mg/L in trout, and 4 mg/L in carp. Thiram is not expected to bioconcentrate in aquatic organisms.
Effects on other organisms: Thiram is nontoxic to bees.
Environmental Fate:
Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Thiram is of low to moderate persistence. It is nearly immobile in clay soils or in soils high in organic matter. Because it is only slightly soluble in water (30 mg/L) and has a strong tendency to adsorb to soil particles, Thiram is not expected to contaminate groundwater. The soil half-life for Thiram is reported as 15 days. Thiram degrades more rapidly in acidic soils and in soils high in organic matter. In a humus sandy soil, at pH 3.5, Thiram decomposed after 4 to 5 weeks, while at pH 7.0, Thiram decomposed after 14 to 15 weeks. Thiram persisted for over 2 months in sandy soils, but disappeared within 1 week from a compost soil. The major metabolites of Thiram in the soil are copper dimethyldithiocarbamate, dithiocarbamate, dimethylamine, and carbon disulfide. In soil, Thiram will be degraded by microbial action or by hydrolysis under acidic conditions. Thiram will not volatilize from wet or dry soil surfaces.
Breakdown in water: In water, Thiram is rapidly broken down by hydrolysis and photodegradation, especially under acidic conditions. Thiram may adsorb to suspended particles or to sediment.
Breakdown in vegetation: No data are currently available.
