Special fire fighting equipment: Self-contained breathing apparatus, full protective clothing.

Unusual fire and explosion hazards: Emits toxic fumes of phosphorus oxides (POx).

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Wear dusk mask or respirator, chemical safety goggles or face shield, rubber gloves and boots when handling.

After spillage / leakage: Scoop up, collect and place the product in a clean, labeled container for re-use or for safe disposal according to the regulations of the local authority.
Remaining of the product should be diluted with water. Take care to avoid contamination of drains and watercourses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Hygroscopic - Prevent contact with air and moisture. Avoid excessive generation and inhalation of dust. Avoid eye and bodily contact and use appropriate personal protective equipment. Prevent from contact with incompatible materials such as alkalis, acids, oxidizing materials.
