Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures :
-Facilities and equipment easily cleanable.
-If molten : Avoid splashes.
-Apply technical measures to comply with the occupational exposure limits.
-Extraction to remove dust at its source.
-Provide adequate ventilation.

Personal protective equipment
- Respiratory protection
Use a respirator with an approved filter if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
Respirator with a particle filter (EN 143)
In short-term processes where contact to substance cannot be excluded (e.g. sampling operations) and where the opportunity for exposure is higher than reference value, a combination of activated carbon filter and particulate filter can be used.
If vapour is released (molten product):
Respirator with a vapour filter (EN 141) with a specific gas canister.

- Eye protection :
Safety goggles (material : polycarbonate or equivalent)
In case of contact through splashing (molten product): Wear face-shield and protective suit.
A mask is required for manual cleaning and maintenance of the equipments, sampling blend before packaging (outdoor), off loading into container (outdoor), off loading into drums (outdoor), sampling drums (outdoor) and for addition of TBC during storage of the monomers.

- Hand protection :
Where there is a risk of contact with hands, use appropriate gloves.
The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and the standard EN 374 derived from it.
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.
Gloves must be inspected prior to use.
Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.
Long protective gloves, which go over the sleeves.

- Skin and body protection:
Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing.
In case of contact through splashing or Handling molten product: Full protective suit
Protective clothing. PVC apron covering the tops of the boots.
Appropriate safety shoes (material : PVC or equivalent)
Appropriate clothing (material: PVC or equivalent)


-Hygiene measures
Emergency equipment immediately accessible, with instructions for use.
Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
Regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing.

Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Shower or bathe at the end of working.
When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Protective measures
The protective equipment must be selected in accordance with current local standards and in cooperation with the supplier of the protective equipment.
