Exposure controls / personal protection

· Additional information about design of technical facilities:

No further data; see handling and storage.

Ventilation must be sufficient to maintain TLV-TWA below 3 mg/m³, respirable particles, and 10 mg/m³,

inhalable particles [ACGIH recommendation for Particles (Insoluble or poorly soluble). Not Otherwise

Specified (PNOS)]

· Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace: Not required.

· Personal protective equipment:

· General protective and hygienic measures:

The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals.

· Respiratory protection: Use suitable respiratory protective device in case of insufficient ventilation.

· Protection of hands:

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/

the chemical mixture.

· Material of gloves

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of

quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

· Penetration time of glove material

The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be


· Eye protection: Safety glasses

· Body protection: Light weight protective clothing

· Limitation and supervision of exposure into the environment

Based on all data available this product is of low hazard for the aquatic environment.

· Risk management measures

Exposure of the eye to dust at concentrations leading to irritation/corrosion during professional/consumer

use of this product can occur. When existing controls (i.e. engineering controls and personal protective

equipment based on classification and labelling of this product as causing serious damage to eyes) are

applied the substance is of no concern for workers.

· Additional information: For powder product: 0.80% by volume of sample was seen to be

< 10.00 μm.

The D10 was < 80.92 μm and D50 < 204.529 μm ( laser

diffraction particle analysis)

For granulated product: 0.8% by volume of sample was seen to

be < 1.0 mm.

The D10 was < 1.76 mm and D50 < 2.62 mm ( PSD analysis)

Stability and reactivity

· Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided:

No decomposition if used and stored according to specifications.

· Materials to be avoided:


Urea (Mixing with urea causes formation of very sticky urea phosphate.)

· Dangerous reactions Reacts with alkali (lyes).

· Dangerous decomposition products:

Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or in case of fire.

Phosphorus oxides (e.g. P2O5)

Sulphur oxides (SOx)

Danger of toxic fluorine based pyrolysis products.

Disposal considerations


· Recommendation

Superphosphate is used as fertiliser. However, large spills can kill vegetation. Prevent large quantities from

entering waterways. If incontaminating, sweep up or collect, and reuse as product. If contaminated with

other materials, collect in suitable containers.

Smaller quantities can be disposed of with household waste.

Disposal must be made in accordance with Local Authority requirements.

· Uncleaned packaging:

· Recommendation:

Packaging may be reused or recycled after cleaning.

Disposal must be made in accordance with Local Authority requirements.

· Recommended cleansing agents: Water, if necessary together with cleansing agents.
