7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.
Storage class according to TRGS 510 (originally VCI, Germany): (8A) Combustible corrosive substances

From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.
7.3. Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.
8.1. Control parameters
Components with occupational exposure limits
The surveillance of the workplace by exposure measurements may be necessary, in order to proof the efficiency of safety measures, for example ventilation or the need of respiratory protection. Since this requires a specific competency, only accredited laboratories should be contracted. Regarding suitable methods to assess inhalative exposure the European Standards EN 482, 689 and 14042 are to be considered. In addition the TRGS 402 has to be observed in Germany.

8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
polyvinylchloride (PVC) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).
