FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

In case of fire in the surroundings: all extinguishing agents allowed.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION
Local exhaust.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety spectacles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Sweep spilled substance into covered containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water. Personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles.
Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases, strong acids. Keep in a well-ventilated room.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
ODOURLESS WHITE CRYSTALS OR POWDER.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating above 100C, on contact with strong bases, producing toxic and corrosive fumes including ammonia , nitrogen oxides and phosphorus oxides . The solution in water is a weak base. Reacts vigorously with strong acids and strong oxidants . Gradually gives off ammonia on exposure to air.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol.

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed, especially, if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance irritates the eyes .

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Decomposes below melting point at 100C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.6
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 10C: 57.5
