Ingredients not precisely
identified are proprietary and/or non-hazardous. All chemical ingredients
appear on the EPA TSCA inventory.
3. Hazards Identification
Emergency Overview: CAUTION! MAY CAUSE IRRITATION TO SKIN,
EYES, AND RESPIRATORY TRACT. MAY BE HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED OR INHALED.
Potential Health Effects:
Signs and Symptoms of
Acute Overexposure: Direct
contact with eyes may cause irritation, pain and possible corneal injury.
Contact with skin may cause strong irritation, erythemia, pain and blistering.
Signs and Symptoms of
Chronic overexposure: MSP
is used as a food additive with no adverse effects. May sequester calcium
and cause calcium phosphate deposits in the kidneys. Chronic ingestion
or inhalation may induce systemic phosphorous poisoning. Liver damage,
kidney damage, jaw/tooth abnormalities, blood disorders and cardiovascular
effects can result.
Medical Conditions Generally
Aggravated by Exposure:
Ingestion: Phosphates are slowly and incompletely
absorbed when ingested, and seldom result in systemic effects. Such effects,
however, have occurred. Symptoms may include vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea,
blood chemistry effects, heart disturbances and central nervous system
effects. Phosphates are toxic because of their ability to sequester calcium.
Inhalation: (Acute) Inhalation of dust may produce
throat irritation and coughing.
4. First Aid Measures
Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air
Ingestion: Wash mouth out with water or milk. Get
medical aid for chemical ingredients.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and footwear.
Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Wash clothing before
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for
15 minutes. Get medical attention.
Note to Physician: Treat chemical exposure symptomatically
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Flash Point: DSP noncombustible, MSP slight fire
hazard when exposed to heat or flame.
Flammability Limits: NA
Autoignition temp: NA
Fire Extinguishing Media:
Water spray, carbon
dioxide, dry chemical
Special Fire-Fighting Information:
apparatus (SCBA) with a full facepiece operated in pressure-demand
or other positive pressure mode.
Unusual Fire and Explosion
Hazards: Avoid breathing
vapors or dusts. Keep upwind
6. Accidental Release Measures
Soil spill: Dig a pit, pond, or lagoon holding area to contain
liquid or solid material. Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving
in rain or firefighting water. Water spill: Add suitable agent to
neutralize spilled material to pH 7 then place into a chemical waste container.
Wear approved respirator for nuisance dust during cleanup. US Regulations
(CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in
excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard
National Response Center is (800) 424-8802.
7. Handling and Storage
Store in cool dry place. Prevent
skin and eye contact. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after use.
Avoid creating dust. If dust level is extreme,see item 8 for respirator
information. Keep container closed when not in use.
8. Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection
Ventilation System: Good general ventilation is advisable
Personal Respirators (NIOSH
or European Standard EN 149 Approved): Use
respirator to screen out nuisance dust and fumes. The specific respirator
selected must be based on contamination levels found in the workplace,
must be based on the specific operation, must not exceed working limits
of the respirator and must be jointly approved by NIOSH and MSHA. The following
respirators are recommended based on information found in the physical
data, toxicity, and health effects sections and are ranked in order from
minimum to maximum respiratory protection: any dust and mist respirator;
any air-purifying respirator with a dust and mist filter; any powered air-purifying
respirator with a high-efficiency particulate filter; any type "c"
supplied-air respirator operated in the pressure-demand or other positive
pressure or continuous-flow mode; any self-contained breathing apparatus.
Skin Protection: Long sleeved clothing and gloves, to prevent
prolonged skin contact with this substance. Eye Protection: Safety glasses if dust is raised
Other Control Measures:
in accordance with good hygiene practice. Avoid handling which would create
large amounts of dust.

12. Ecological Information
Environmental Fate: . If diluted with water, this chemical
is not expected to have a significant environmental impact beyond increasing
eutrophication in water bodies. This product contributes 260,000 mg/kg of
soluble phosphate, when applied to a water body.
Environmental Toxicity: Phosphate nutrients can increase
eutrophication of lakes, ponds, reservoirs and other waterways, so nutrient
release should be minimized as much as possible, although COD delivered
by this product will encourage heterotrophic bacteria in the water body
to assimilate the included phosphate.
13. Disposal Considerations
RCRA Hazard Class (if
discarded): Neat, unused
product is not considered a hazardous waste, according to RCRA regulations
40 CFR 261. . For proper disposal of used materials, an assessment must
be completed to determine the proper waste management options permissible
under applicable rules, regulations and/or laws governing client's location.
Use until less than 1 inch remains in the container, triple rinse with clean
water, and pour rinse water to sewer. Then remove or deface product label
to avoid confusion if pail or drum is later refilled. Clean, empty containers
should be recycled or disposed of through an approved waste management facility.
