Exposure controls / personal protection

1 Control parameters:
1.1 Components with occupational exposure limits rsp. biological occupational exposure limits requiring monitoring:
1.1.1 Occupational exposure limits:
Air limit values: We are not aware of any national exposure limit.
Biological limit values: We are not aware of any national exposure limit.
1.1.2 Additional exposure limits under the conditions of use:
No other exposure limits applicable.
1.1.3 DNEL/DMEL and PNEC-values:

PNEC: No Chemical Safety Report performed. No PNEC value determined.
2 Exposure controls:
Occupational exposure controls:
Instruction measures to prevent exposure: Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking, or using tobacco products. Keep away from foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco.
Technical measures to prevent exposure: Ensure adequate ventilation.
Personal measures to prevent exposure:
Respiratory protection : Breathing equipment A/(P2)-filter.
Hand protection : Use chemical resistant gloves. In case of prolonged immersion or frequently repeated contact use gloves made of the materials: butylrubber (thickness >= 0.70 mm, breakthrough time > 480 min).(EN 374). The use of protective gloves should conform to the specifications of EC directive 89/686/EC and the resultant standard EN374. Additional advice: The data are based on own tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or derived from
similar substances. Because several factors may influence these properties (eg temperature), one should take into account the fact that the life of a chemical gloves in practice test. The high diversity of types of use are prescribed by the manufacturer.
