Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1 Control parameters
Limits for occupational safety are not be valid, because the substance must be used in closed system according to Article 18 (4) REACH. Exposures are therefore minimized.
8.2 Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls:
Immediately change contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. General room ventilation is adequate unless the process generates dust or fumes. Work clothing should be removed in a change room on site and laundered professionally. Employees should shower and change into street clothes before leaving the facility. Prevent the accumulation of dust in the work area by thorough periodic cleaning of the area.
Personal protective equipment:
Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous substances handled. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemicals should be ascertained with the respective supplier.
Respiratory protection: Is required whenever air contamination (dust, mist, or vapors) is generated by the process. A NIOSH-approved high efficiency toxic dust/mist/fume respirator is recommended.
Eye protection: required
Hand protection: In full and splash contact:
Glove material: Butyl-/Nitrile rubber
Layer thickness: 0.11 mm
The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC directive 89/686/EEC and the resultant standard EN374.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safe data sheet and supplied by us as well as to the purpose specified by us. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves.
