First-aid measures

• After inhalation:
If inhaled, remove victim to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
• After skin contact:
Immediately remove and discard contaminated clothing and shoes. Under a safety shower, wash all affected areas with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Do not attempt to neutralize with chemical agents.
• After eye contact:
Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelids apart to ensure rinsing of the entire surface of the eye and lids with water. Do not attempt to neutralize the material. Get medical attention immediately.
• After swallowing:
Get medical attention by calling a physician or a poison control center immediately. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, keep head below hips to reduce the risk of aspiration. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If necessary, obtain medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Use water fog or spray, dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide extinguishing agents.
• Special hazards caused by the material, its products of combustion or resulting gases:
This product is not defined as flammable or combustible. However, the product may support combustion and decompose under fire conditions. The material is self extinguishing once the source of ignition is removed. It is not sensitive to static discharge or physical impact.
Decomposition of this product under fire conditions may produce toxic oxides of carbon, irritating phosphorus oxides and corrosive hydrogen chloride gas.
• Protective equipment:
As in any fire, prevent human exposure to fire, smoke, fumes or products of combustion. Evacuate nonessential personnel from the fire area. Firefighters should wear full-face, self contained breathing apparatus and impervious protective clothing. If possible, move containers from the fire area. If not leaking, keep fire-exposed containers cool with a water fog or spray to prevent rupture due to excessive heat. High pressure water may spread product from broken containers increasing contamination or fire hazard. Prevent fire control water for later disposal. Do not allow contaminated water to enter waterways.

Accidental release measures

• Personnel-related safety precautions:
Isolate spill area and restrict nonessential personnel.
All personnel involved in spill cleanup should follow appropriate industrial hygiene practices.
Particular danger of slipping on leaked/spilled product.
• Measures for environmental protection:
Stop source of spill if possible and prevent spill from spreading.
• Measures for cleaning/collecting:
Soak up liquid with a suitable absorbent such as clay, sawdust, or kitty litter. Sweep up absorbed material and place in a chemical waste container for disposal. Cover spill area with slurry of powdered household detergent and water. Use stiff brush to work slurry into cracks and crevices. Allow to stand for 2-3 minutes, and then flush with water. Dike water for later disposal. Do not allow contaminated water to enter waterways or sewers.

Handling and storage

• Handling:
• Information for safe handling:
Empty containers may retain product residues. Follow all warnings and precautions even after container is empty.
Containers should be located in an area where they can be rotated regularly (first in, first out) and visually inspected for dents and bulging on a weekly basis.
Wear protective clothing including chemical goggles and rubber gloves when handling this product to avoid eye and skin contact. Handle in a well ventilated area. Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist. Wash thoroughly after handling.
• Information about protection against explosions and fires: The product is not flammable.
• Storage:
• Suggested Storage Conditions:
This material is noncorrosive to glass or metals. However, because the material has plasticizing properties, it may soften or deteriorate certain plastics and elastomers (particularly vinyl-based resins, neoprene and natural rubbers).
• Information about storage in one common storage facility:
Store away from foodstuffs and animal feed. Containers should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from flammable or incompatible materials and sources of heat or flame.
• Further information about storage conditions: store below 122 F (50 C) to minimize product degradation.

Exposure controls / personal protection

• Personal protective equipment:
• General protective and hygienic measures:
Skin contact, eye contact and inhalation are the primary routes of exposure to this product.
• Breathing equipment:
Use a NIOSH-approved organic vapor/acid gas respirator (OVAG) with dust, mist and fume filters to reduce potential for inhalation exposure if use conditions generate vapor, mist or aerosol and adequate ventilation (e.g., outdoor or well ventilated area) is not available. Where exposure necessitates a higher level of protection (e.g., if breakthrough resulting in dizziness or numbness is experienced) use a NIOSH-approved, positive pressure, pressure demand, air-supplied respirator.
• Protection of hands:
Skin contact with liquid or its aerosol should be prevented through the use of suitable protective clothing, gloves and footware selected with regard for use condition exposure potential.
• Material of gloves Neoprene gloves
• Eye protection:
Eye contact with liquid or aerosol should be prevented through the use of chemical safety goggles or a face shield selected with regard for use condition exposure potential. Eye wash fountains or other means of washing eyes with a gentle flow of water should be readily available in all areas where this product is handled or stored.
Water should be supplied through insulated and/or heat-traced pipes to prevent freeze-up in winter.
• Body protection:
Safety showers, with quick opening valves which stay open and eye wash fountains or other means of washing the eyes with a gentle flow of cool to tepid tap water should be readily available in all areas where this material is handled or stored. Water should be supplied through insulated and heat-traced lines to prevent freezeups in cold weather. Long sleeved clothing may be used to minimize skin contact.

Stability and reactivity

• Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided:
Avoid prolonged storage at elevated temperatures (above 122F; 50C). Avoid contact with strong acids, strong bases and strong oxidizers.
Prolonged storage at elevated temperatures under wet conditions should be avoided. Care should be taken to prevent moisture from condensing in the container.
• Materials to be avoided:
This product is incompatible with strong oxidizers, strong acids and strong alkalis. It hydrolyzes slowly at ambient temperatures in acidic or alkaline aqueous solutions.
• Dangerous reactions Hazardous polymerization is not expected to occur.
• Dangerous products of decomposition:
Phosphorus oxides (e.g. P2O5)
Hydrogen chloride (HCl)
Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide
Under wet alkaline or neutral conditions this product hydrolyzes slowly and nonviolently.
• Additional information:
A slight increase in acidity is normal during storage. This product is stable at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressures. It is not self-reactive and has a long shelf life under sealed conditions in the absence of moisture. It is not sensitive to physical impact or static discharge.
