Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment

Eye protection : Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety
glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face shield.)

Hand protection
Break through time : 480 min
Glove thickness : 0,7 mm
Remarks : Long-term exposure Impervious butyl rubber gloves
Break through time : 30 min
Glove thickness : 0,4 mm
Remarks : For short-term exposure (splash protection): Nitrile rubber gloves.
Remarks : These types of protective gloves are offered by various manufacturers. Please note the manufacturers´ detailed statements, especially about the minimum thickness and the minimum breakthrough time. Consider also the particular working conditions under which the gloves are being used.

Skin and body protection : Depending on the degree of hazard, when handling corrosive substances, aprons, boots or full protective clothing made of suitable materials (e.g. rubberized or PVC-coated) must also be worn.
Wear suitable protective equipment.

Respiratory protection : Use respiratory protection in specific critical circumstances (in case of emergency):
Full mask to standard DIN EN 136
Filter A (organic gases and vapours) to standard DIN EN 141
The use of filter apparatus presupposes that the environment atmosphere contains at least 17% oxygen by volume, and does not exceed the maximum gas concentration, usually 0.5% by volume.
Relevant guidelines to be considered include EN 136/141/143/371/372 as well as other national regulations.

Protective measures : Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Avoid formation of aerosol.

Stability and reactivity
