Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable : All extinguishing agents can be used (water, foam, powders, carbon dioxide, sand).
Not suitable : None to our knowledge. If there is a fire close by, use suitable extinguishing agents.
Specific hazards: On heating, after complete evaporation of water may partially decompose, releasing combustible gases (phosphine).
Specific fire fighting methods : Do NOT attempt to fight the fire without suitable protective equipment. Cool down the containers/equipment exposed to heat with a water spray. .
Evacuate the personnel away from the fumes.
Do not breathe fumes.
Protection of fire-fighters: Complete protective clothing. Use sfelf-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Prevent the product from spreading into the environment. . If spillage occurs on the public highway, indicate the danger and notify the authorities (police, fire brigade). - full protective clothing and equipment.
Environmental precautions: Contain the spilled material by bunding. Avoid direct discharge into drains.
Personal protective equipment: acid-resistant protective clothing; eye/face protection (safety glasses + visor); appropriate long gloves.
Methods for cleaning up
- Recovery : Recover as much of the product as possible. Absorb the product onto porous material. Transfer the product into a spare container: - suitably labelled. Then take the emergency containers to an area reserved for subsequent recycling or disposal.
- Neutralization : If pH requires neutralize with : - calcium hydroxide. - sodium bicarbonate. Absorb spillage with: - diatomaceous earth- sand or inert absorbent.
- Cleaning/Decontamination : Wash non-recoverable remainder with large amounts of water.
Do NOT discharge into drains. Dispose of all contaminated materials in accordance with current regulations. Place in an appropriate container and dispose of the contaminated material at a licensed site.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures : No specific measures are required provided the product is handled in accordance with the general rules of occupational hygiene and safety.
Personal protective equipment:
Wear suitable clothing. Wear impermeable protective gloves – chemical resistant and compliant with Standard EN 374-1. Protective gloves must be selected according to the function of the industrial installation – the other chemicals being handled, whether physical protection is required, and the degree of dexterity required. The selection of gloves must take into account the extent and duration of use at the work station.
Wear safety spectacles, goggles, or a face shield, according to the task.
Emergency equipment: Ensure that an eye-wash fountain, a safety shower and a first-aid box are readily available.
Hygiene measures: Use clean and correctly maintained personal protective equipment. Keep personal protective equipment in a clean place, away from the work area. Always wash hands immediately after handling the product, and once again before leaving the workplace. Do not eat or drink in the workplace.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable at ambient temperature and under normal conditions of use.
Conditions to avoid: High temperatures. Decomposes above 200°C.
Materials to avoid: Reacts with alkalis and caustic products with the release of heat. Reacts with oxidizing materials.
Hazardous decomposition products: After vaporization: on combustion or thermal decomposition (pyrolysis) corrosive vapours (CO + CO2) (phosphorus oxides). Above 200°C releases Phosphine. The phosphine will burn on to phosphorus pentoxide unless there is insufficient fresh air.
Further information: Aqueous solution attacks base metals, can develop highly flammable gas (hydrogen) which generates fire or explosion hazards.

Disposal considerations

RESIDUES FROM PRODUCT
