Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

91-20-3: naphthalene

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Gas filter EN141 Type A

for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C).

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)

Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,

corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):

fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness

Polyethylene-Laminate (PE laminate) - ca. 0.1 mm coating thickness

Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,

corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)

nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on own tests, literature data and information of

glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions

(e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in

practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (EN 166)

Body protection:

Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting

boots, chemical-protection suit (according to DIN-EN 465).

General safety and hygiene measures:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work

clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.
