Aluminum Phosphide (Phostoxin) Formulation
Fumigation tablets | Pellets
Pellets contain 56-57% aluminum phosphide as an active substance and 43-44% inert components, mainly ammonium carbamate amongst others, that facilitate controlled outgassing of phosphine.
One pellet has a weight of 0.6 g and releases 0.2 g of phosphine gas.
Aluminum Phosphide Pellets | Tablets
The outgassing of the pellets and round tablets begins after a short delay once the fumigant comes into contact with the product or ambient moisture. The outgassing rate depends on temperature and humidity levels.
The smaller dimensions of the pellets lead to somehow more rapid outgassing compared to tablets. All developmental stages of stored product pests, as well as outdoor rodents’ use, can be controlled with phosphine. The highly potent gas penetrates the commodities, as well as the ones which are densely packed and nearly all packaging materials.
Since phosphine reacts with noble metals such as silver, gold, copper, and their compounds, these substances must be provided with sufficient protection during fumigation. Get your Aluminium Phosphide Tables Quote, Get Quote
