Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection:
tightly fitting goggles
Hand Protection:
Material: butyl rubber gloves (minimal thickness 0.3 mm)
Break-through time: 480 min
Guideline: EN 374
Additional Information: Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time., The above mentioned hand protection is based on special knowledge of the chemical and the intended handling of this product, however, it still may not be suited for all workplaces. A qualified hazard assessment should be made prior to the onset of work in order to determine the suitability of gloves for specific working environments and processes., Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods
General information:
Dispose of waste and residues in accordance with local authority requirements.
Disposal methods:
Waste is hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after consultation of the competent local authorities and the disposal company in a suitable and licensed facility. Strictly controlled conditions during disposal or treatment to air, wastewater and waste. Do not add wastewater to a biological wastewater treatment plant Bring wastewater containing AOX for professional disposal. The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
Contaminated Packaging:
Contaminated packaging should ideally be emptied; it can then be recycled after having been decontaminated. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of professionally. Uncontaminated packaging may be taken for recycling.
