12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
ALL WORK PRACTICES MUST BE AIMED AT ELIMINATING ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION.
ENVIRONMENTAL STABILITY: The acidity of this product may be reduced in an aquatic environment readily by natural
water hardness minerals; however the phosphate may persist indefinitely. When spilled onto soil, this product will infiltrate
downward, the rate being greater with lower concentration because of reduced viscosity. During transport through the soil,
phosphoric acid will dissolve some of the soil material, in particular, carbonate-based materials. The acid will be neutralized
to some degree with adsorption of the proton and phosphate ions also possible. However, significant amounts of acid will
remain for transport down toward the groundwater table. Upon reaching the groundwater table, the acid will continue to
move in the direction of groundwater flow. A contaminated plume will be produced with dilution and dispersion serving to
reduce the acid concentration.
EFFECT OF MATERIAL ON PLANTS or ANIMALS: Due to the corrosivity of this solution, this product can be harmful or
fatal to plant and animal life, if this product is released into the environment.
EFFECT OF CHEMICAL ON AQUATIC LIFE: This solution can substantially lower the pH of an aquatic environment and
can be extremely toxic to fish and aquatic plants. Additional aquatic toxicity data are available for the Phosphoric Acid
component, as follows:
TLm (mosquito fish) 24-96 hours = 138 mg/L in turbid water at 22-24 deg C.
13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
PREPARING WASTES FOR DISPOSAL: Waste disposal must be in accordance with appropriate U.S. Federal, State, and
local regulations and those of Canada and EC Member States. This solution, if unaltered by use, may be disposed of by

DEFINITIONS OF TERMS
A large number of abbreviations and acronyms appear on a MSDS. Some of these which are commonly used include the following:
CAS #: This is the Chemical Abstract Service Number that uniquely
identifies each constituent.
EXPOSURE LIMITS IN AIR:
CEILING LEVEL: The concentration that shall not be exceeded during any
part of the working exposure.
LOQ: Limit of Quantitation.
MAK: Federal Republic of Germany Maximum Concentration Values in the
workplace.
NE: Not Established. When no exposure guidelines are established, an
entry of NE is made for reference.
NIC: Notice of Intended Change.
NIOSH CEILING: The exposure that shall not be exceeded during any part
of the workday. If instantaneous monitoring is not feasible, the ceiling shall
be assumed as a 15-minute TWA exposure (unless otherwise specified)
that shall not be exceeded at any time during a workday.
NIOSH RELs: NIOSH’s Recommended Exposure Limits.
PEL-Permissible Exposure Limit: OSHA’s Permissible Exposure Limits.
This exposure value means exactly the same as a TLV, except that it is
enforceable by OSHA. The OSHA Permissible Exposure Limits are based
in the 1989 PELs and the June, 1993 Air Contaminants Rule (Federal
Register: 58: 35338-35351 and 58: 40191). Both the current PELs and the
vacated PELs are indicated. The phrase, “Vacated 1989 PEL,” is placed
next to the PEL that was vacated by Court Order.
SKIN: Used when a there is a danger of cutaneous absorption.
STEL-Short Term Exposure Limit: Short Term Exposure Limit, usually a
15-minute time-weighted average (TWA) exposure that should not be
exceeded at any time during a workday, even if the 8-hr TWA is within the
TLV-TWA, PEL-TWA or REL-TWA.
TLV-Threshold Limit Value: An airborne concentration of a substance that
represents conditions under which it is generally believed that nearly all
workers may be repeatedly exposed without adverse effect. The duration
must be considered, including the 8-hour.
TWA-Time Weighted Average:
Time Weighted Average exposure
concentration for a conventional 8-hr (TLV, PEL) or up to a 10-hr (REL)
workday and a 40-hr workweek.
IDLH-Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health: This level represents a
concentration from which one can escape within 30-minutes without
suffering escape-preventing or permanent injury.
