RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
Not normally required. If adequate ventilation is unavailable, use approved air-purifying respirator with organic vapour cartridge or canister (type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2), in compliance with EN 141.). Self-contained breathing apparatus must be available in case of emergency.

HAND PROTECTION
