A volatile liquid that is colourless with an 'ether-like' odour.
Health Effects: In high levels CS2 has been known to effect the nervous system. In terms of risk the gas has a low auto ignition point (102C), requiring detection systems to run at low temperatures to ensure safe operation.
Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL) – N/A
Time Weighted Average (TWA) – 10PPM
Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) – 500PPM
Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) – 1.3%
CAS # - 75-15-0
