- Contains Magnesium Phosphide that generates Phosphine Gas.
- Addresses the special needs of tobacco industry
- Versatile fumigant for use on most grains and commodities
- Fast activity and no residue
Magnaphos, containing Magnesium Phosphide, produces Phosphine gas when acted upon by atmospheric moisture. Magnaphos decomposes faster than Aluminum Phosphide, reaching its maximum concentration in 24-36 hours depending on ambient temperature and humidity. Magnesium Phosphide is mixed and uniformly embedded in the polymer in a plate approximately of size 215 mm x 340 mm x 4 mm. These plates are covered in a moisture permeable material which also holds the residue after fumigation is completes.
Magnaphos is the most commonly used fumigant for the control or stored Tobacco & stored grain pests particularly when the temperatures are low and when quick release of phosphine gas is desired.
