chemical to extinguish fires.  Water stream may be

ineffective.  Use water to keep containers cool.

Product arising from burning: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and/or oxides of phosphorus.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear self-contained positive pressure breathing apparatus

and full fire-fighting protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Where exposure level is not known, wear NIOSH approved,

positive pressure, self contained respirator.  Where

exposure level is known, wear NIOSH approved respirator

suitable for the level of exposure.  To prevent skin contact

wear skin protection, such as impervious gloves, apron, work

trousers, long sleeve work shirt or disposable overalls.

Prevent eye contact by using eye protection such as chemical

splash proof goggles or face shield.  In addition to the

above protective clothing/equipment, wear impervious boots.

Cover spills with some inert absorbent material; sweep up

and place in a waste disposal container.  Flush area with

water.

Handling and storage

Handling: - Utilize in a closed system where feasible.  If the

substance is not used in a closed system, good enclosure and

local exhaust ventilation should be provided to control

exposure.

- In the case of insufficient ventillation wear suitable

respiratory equipment.

- Wear eye/face protection, goggles, and face shield.

- Wear impermeable gloves and suitable protective clothing.

Prevent contamination of skin or clothing when removing

protective equipment

Storage: The substance is not sensitive to light.  Storage above 5°C

is recommended to avoid high viscosity.

(Packing is detailed in section 2.6.00)

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Normal storage containers are tight head, high density,

polyethylene drums (210 litres capacity) manufactured by

Hunter Drum, Ontario, Canada.  The drums are made to UN

specifications for packing group II hazardous (corrosive)

liquids and are stamped according to UN regulations.

For small quantities (0.5 to 20 litres), the substance is

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is readily recovered by absorption onto

activated charcoal.  It may be removed from the charcoal by

treatment with an aliphatic hydrocarbon and recycled.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not recommended

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recomended

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method of disposal.  Incineration is readily

accomplished by thermal oxidiser/scrubbing to produce carbon

dioxide, water and phosphoric acid containing small

concentrations of sulphuric acid.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.
