Phosphoric Acid Spill Cleanup

How to Clean-Up Phosphoric Acid Spill

Phosphoric acid is a clear liquid or a transparent crystalline solid. It is widely used in the manufacturing of food additives, fertilizers, cleaning products, and water treatment. Did you know this chemical acid is also used as a flavoring component in Coca-Cola beverages? Scary!

Phosphoric acid can damage the lungs through inhalation. Breathing may cause irritation to the nose and throat if a worker is not careful. For cleanup, workers should wear protection and carefully put chemical waste into covered containers in a safe area. Clean-up should be immediate when phosphoric acid spills in the laboratory, workshop, or on the industrial floor. Amphomag® provides simple steps to make sure the spill is under control and ensuring workers are safe.
