Other Information

Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.The symptoms of asthma often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should avoid all further contact with this substance.Environmental effects from the substance have not been investigated but data on cobalt ion suggest that it may be hazardous to aquatic organisms.See ICSC 0783.
