First-aid measures

Swallowing:
Do not induce vomiting. Obtain medical attention immediately.

Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. Obtain medical attention if symptoms develop.

Skin contact:
Immediately wash with soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes. If redness or irritation occurs, seek medical attention.

Eye contact:
Immediately flush eyes with water and continue washing for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if worn. Obtain medical attention if irritation develops.

Fire-fighting measures

Hazardous combustion products:
Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxides of phosphorous, phosphine.

Special fire fighting procedures:
Water spray may be used to cool containers and adjacent surfaces. Run-off water may be highly acidic and should be collected and neutralized if possible.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: F
irefighters must be equipped to prevent breathing of vapors or products of combustion. Wear an approved self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing. Full protective clothing

Extinguishing media:
Suitable: CO2, dry chemical, foam

Unusual fire and explosion hazards:
Hazardous combustion products may include intense heat, dense black smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon fragments, phosphine, fragments of phosphite/phosphate esters and oxides of phosphorus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Wear protective clothing when taking up spill. Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Environmental precautions:
Avoid drainage to sewers or natural waters., Since phosphites can hydrolyze, notification of governing agencies may be appropriate due to the possible release of phenolic materials.

Handling and storage

Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling. Keep containers tightly closed to prevent contamination. Electrically bond and ground all containers and equipment before transfer or use of material. Caution - If water contamination has occurred, or if you have any reason to suspect water contamination, do not heat containers of product. Do not heat opened containers with steam in a manner which will allow steam to condense into the container.

Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Store in a dry place away from excessive heat. Exposure to moisture or high humidity can cause hydrolysis producing phosphorus acid and phenol. Keep container tightly closed. Normal precautions common to safe manufacturing practice should be followed in handling and storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling. Keep containers tightly closed to prevent contamination.

Stability and reactivity

Exposure to moisture or high humidity can cause hydrolysis producing phosphorus acid and phenol. Will react in the presence of water. Reaction rate will increase with increasing temperatures and pressures. Hydrolyzed by moisture to phosphorus acid and alcohol(s).
