Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection : Full mask, combination filter B2/P2
Hand protection : Glove material Natural Latex
Break through time: > 480 min
Glove thickness: 0,6 mm
Lapren®706

Remarks:
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on information and tests from similar substances by analogy. Due to varying conditions ( e.g.temperature or other strains) it must be considered that the usage of a chemical protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation
time determined in accordance with EN 374. Since actual conditions of practical use often deviate from standardised conditions according EN 374 the glove manufacturer reccomends to use the chemical protective glove in practice not longer than 50% of the recomended permeation
time. Manufacturer´s directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types . Suitable gloves tested according EN 374 are suppliede.g. from KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Vertrieb@kcl.de

Eye protection : see respiratory protection
