First-aid measures

Inhalation: If symptoms appear, seek medical advice.
Skin contact: If symptoms appear, seek medical advice.
Eye contact: Rinse with plenty of lukewarm water. If sypmtoms appear, seek medical advice.
Ingestion: If symptoms appear, seek medical advice.

No special first aid equipment is needed.

Fire-fighting measures

Fe3P is not flammable. Finely pulverised substances suspended in the air can cause a dust explosion, but the particle size of the product makes this improbable. The risk of dust explosion increases for very fine particle fractions (<45 µm).

Suitable extinguishing media: Should be selected on the basis of the nature of fires in the area, e.g. water mist, foam, carbon dioxide, powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Foam containing substances harmful to the environment, such as perfluoro-octanesulphonic acid (PFOS) or nononyl ethoxylate.

Protective equipment for fire-fighters: Use self-contained breathing aparratus in the event of a major fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Refer to "Exposure controls / personal protection".

Environmental precautions: Prevent material from entering drains and sewers.

Methods for cleaning up: Spillage should be cleared with vacuum equipment, protected against static electricity, to avoid excess dust.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid dusty working conditions. Use sufficient dust extraction.

Storage: Store in dry conditions.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures: Normally not needed. If occupational exposure limit is suspected to be reached or dust levels are high, exposure measurement is recommended.
2. Organisational protection measures: Normal ventilation. Use local exhaust ventilation if the dust concentration is high.
3. Hand protection: Not normally required
4. Feet protection: No special precautions
5. Body protection: Normal work suit
6. Eye protection: Not normally required
7. Respiratory protection: Halfmask with particle filter P2 shall be worn if exposure limit value is suspected to be exceeded or the dust is percieved to be disturbing.
