PERSONAL PROTECTION

Respiratory protection:
In the absence of engineering controls sufficient to maintain airborne concentrations below recommended occupational exposure limit values, appropriate respiratory protection should be utilized. The determination of appropriate respiratory protection is best performed, on a case by case basis, taking into consideration the exposure conditions of the particular operation.The respirator manufacturer should be consulted to ensure that the air-purifying cartridges utilized will provide adequate protection for the exposure conditions and period of wear concerned.For emergency conditions where the exposure limit may be greatly exceeded, use an approved positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.

Hand protection / protective gloves:
Chemical resistant protective gloves.

Eye protection:
Full face shield.

Skin protection:
Chemical resistant protective clothing.

Industrial hygiene measures:
Before eating, drinking or smoking, wash hands and face thoroughly with soap and water.
