SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Skin Contact Brush or shake off material. Wash contaminated skin with soapy water in a well
ventilated area
Call poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.
Eye Contact
Hold eye open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15 - 20 minutes.
Remove contact lenses, if present, after 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye.
Inhalation If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration
May cause allergic respiratory reaction
Call a physician or poison control center immediately


SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Aluminum phosphide - is not flammable. However, it reacts readily with water to produce hydrogen phosphide (phosphine, PH3) gas which may ignite spontaneously in air concentrations above the LEL of 1.8% v/v.
Extnguishing Media Carbon dioxide (CO2) Dry powder Dry chemical Sand
Autoignition Temperature Not available
Fire/Explosion Hazard Alphos = Hydrogen phosphide (Phosphine)/air mixtures at concentrations above the lower flammable limit may ignite spontaneously. Ignition of high concentrations of hydrogen phosphide can produce a very energetic reaction. Explosions can occur under these conditions and may cause personal injury.
Never allow the build- up of hydrogen phosphide to exceed explosive concentrations. Containers of metal phosphides should be opened in open air and never in a flammable atmosphere. Do not confine spent or partially spent dust from metal phosphide fumigants as slow release of the hydrogen phosphide from these materials may reuslt in formation of an explosive atmosphere. Spontaneous ignition may occur if large quantities of aluminum phosphide are piled in contact with liquid water. Fires containing hydrogen phosphide or metal phosphides will produce phosphoric acid by the following reaction: 2PH3 +4O2 = H2O + P2O5 = 2H3PO4


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal Precautions
Remove all sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective equipment. An accidental spill/release of material may produce high levels of gas. A NIOSH/MSHA approved full face gas mask with phosphine cartridge of SCBA must be employed during wet deactivation of partially spent material. Wear protective gloves and
clothing.
Environmental Precautions
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Should not be released into the environment.
Methods for Clean-up
Do not use water at any time during clean-up. Wear gloves when handling aluminum phsophide. Damaged aluminum foil pouches should be transferred to a sound dry metal cotainer and immediately seal and properly label as aluminum phosphide. Follow all label instructions for disposal of residual material and/or empty containers.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling
Use of this product is STRICTLY PROHIBITED on single and multifamily residential properties and nursing homes, schools (except athletic fields) daycare facilities and hospitals. Keep out of reach of children. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Remove all sources of ignition. Wear personal protective equipment. It is recommended that aluminum foil pouch be opened in air or near a fan, which exhausts outside immediately. Never open in a flammable atmosphere as the product may, although rare, flash. When opening, point pouch away from the face and body. These precautions will reduce the applications potential for exposure to hydrogen phosphide (phosphine) gas. Do not expose product to atmospheric moisture any longer than is necessary.
Storage
Store in cool/well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Do not transport or store above 38 C/100 F. Do not store in buildings where humans or domestic animals reside.


SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure Guidelines
Engineering Controls
Investigate engineering techniques to reduce exposures. Local mechanical exhaust
ventilation is preferred. Consult ACGIH ventilation manual or NFPA Standard 91 for design
of exhaust systems. Use equipment/monitors for the detection of phosphine gas.

Personal Protective Equipment
Where there is potential for eye contact have eye flushing equipment available. Eye contact
should be avoided through the use of chemical safety glasses, goggles, or a faceshield
selected in regard to exposure potential.

Skin Protection
Wear protective gloves/clothing.
Respiratory Protection
A NIOSH/MESA approved full face mask with approved canister for phosphine may be
employed for concentrations up to 15 ppm. At concentrations above that level, or when
concentration is unknown, NIOSH/MESA approved SCBA or equivalent must be worn.


SECTION 9. PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES

Appearance Greenish Yellow
Odor
Garlic like Pure phosphine gas is odorless but a garlic odor
might be detected due to a contaminant. Since odor may
not be detected under certain circumstances, the absence of a
garlic odor does not mean that phosphine gas is absent.

About Aluminum Phosphide Sputtering Target

American Elements specializes in producing high purity Aluminum Phosphide Sputtering Targets with the highest possible density and smallest possible average grain sizes for use in semiconductor, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD) display and optical applications. Our standard Sputtering Targets for thin film are available monoblock or bonded with planar target dimensions and configurations up to 820 mm with hole drill locations and threading, beveling, grooves and backing designed to work with both older sputtering devices as well as the latest process equipment, such as large area coating for solar energy or fuel cells and flip-chip applications. Research sized targets are also produced as well as custom sizes and alloys. All targets are analyzed using best demonstrated techniques including X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF), Glow Discharge Mass Spectrometry (GDMS), and Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP). "Sputtering" allows for thin film deposition of an ultra high purity sputtering metallic or oxide material onto another solid substrate by the controlled removal and conversion of the target material into a directed gaseous/plasma phase through ionic bombardment. Materials are produced using crystallization, solid state and other ultra high purification processes such as sublimation. American Elements specializes in producing custom compositions for commercial and research applications and for new proprietary technologies. American Elements also casts any of the rare earth metals and most other advanced materials into rod, bar, or plate form, as well as other machined shapes.

Related Elements

See more Aluminum products. Aluminum (or Aluminum) (atomic symbol: Al, atomic number: 13) is a Block P, Group 13, Period 3 element with an atomic weight of 26.9815386. It is the third most abundant element in the earth's crust and the most abundant metallic element. Aluminum Bohr Model Aluminum's name is derived from alumina, the mineral from which Sir Humphrey Davy attempted to refine it from in 1812. It wasn't until 1825 that Aluminum was first isolated by Hans Christian Oersted. Aluminum is a silvery gray metal that possesses many desirable characteristics. It is light, nonmagnetic and non-sparking. It stands second among metals in the scale of malleability, and sixth in ductility. It is extensively used in many industrial applications where a strong, light, easily constructed material is needed. Elemental AluminumAlthough it has only 60% of the electrical conductivity of copper, it is used in electrical transmission lines because of its light weight. Pure aluminum is soft and lacks strength, but alloyed with small amounts of copper, magnesium, silicon, manganese, or other elements it imparts a variety of useful properties. Aluminum was first predicted by Antoine Lavoisierin 1787 and first isolated by Friedrich Wöhler in 1827.

Phosphorus Bohr ModelSee more Phosphorus products. Phosphorus (atomic symbol: P, atomic number: 15) is a Block P, Group 15, Period 3 element. The number of electrons in each of Phosphorus's shells is 2, 8, 5 and its electronic configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p3. The phosphorus atom has a radius of 110.5.pm and its Van der Waals radius is 180.pm. Phosphorus is a highly-reactive non-metallic element (sometimes considered a metalloid) with two primary allotropes, white phosphorus and red phosphorus its black flaky appearance is similar to graphitic carbon. Compound forms of phosphorus include phosphates and phosphides. Phosphorous was first recognized as an element by Hennig Brand in 1669 its name (phosphorus mirabilis, or "bearer of light") was inspired from the brilliant glow emitted by its distillation.
