Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, alcohol foam or polymer foam.
Fire fighting procedure Cool containers with water spray. In closed stores, provide fire-fighters with selfcontained
breathing apparatus in positive pressure mode
Unusual fire and explosion
hazards When heated to decomposition, may release poisonous and corrosive fumes of HBr
and oxides of phosphorus.
Dust may form a weak explosive mixture with air ( class St1) at elevated temperature
(>101°C). [Kst = 90 bar.m.s(-1)]

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber boots and heavy rubber gloves.
Methods for cleaning up Sweep up, place in a bag and hold for waste disposal or possible re-use
Avoid raising dust.
Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete.
Avoid access to streams, lakes or ponds.
