Exposure controls / personal protection

· Additional information about design of technical facilities: No further data; see "handling and storage".

· Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:

Samarium oxide, CAS 12060-58-1

AGW (Germany) Long-term value: *3 **10 mg/m³

2(II); *alveolengängig **einatembare Fraktion; AGS

· Additional information: Based on lists valid at date of MSDS creation.

· Personal protective equipment:

· General protective and hygienic measures:

Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing.

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

Do not inhale dust / smoke / mist.

Respiratory protection:

If the WEL value is exceeded.

Filter P2

In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use self-contained respiratory protective device.

· Protection of hands:

Avoid direct contact with the chemical/ the product/ the preparation by organizational measures.

Protective gloves.

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Preventive skin protection by use of skin-protecting agents is recommended.

Check the condition of the gloves prior to each use.

Wear gloves for protection against mechanical hazards according to EN 388.

Use gloves of stable material (e.g. Nitrile) - if necessary tricoted to improve the wearability.

· Material of gloves

Recommended thickness of the material: ≥ 0.35 mm

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. As the product is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove material can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.

Penetration time of glove material

EN 420: Minimum requirements for efficiency level 1 for all groups.

For the mixture of chemicals mentioned below the penetration time has to be at least 480 minutes (Permeation according to EN 374 Part 3: Level 6).

The exact break through time has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

· For the permanent contact in work areas without heightened risk of injury (e.g. Laboratory) gloves made of the following material are suitable:

Butyl rubber, BR

Nitrile rubber, NBR

· Not suitable are gloves made of the following materials:

Strong material gloves

Leather gloves

· Eye protection:

Safety glasses.

· Body protection: Protective work clothing.

Stability and reactivity

· Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided:

No decomposition if used according to specifications.

· Dangerous decomposition products:

Metal oxide smoke

Disposal considerations

· Product:

· Recommendation: Disposal must be made according to official regulations.

· Waste disposal key:

The disposal of the product has to be carried out in accordance with the legal requirements. EWC waste codes are strictly industry-oriented, therefore waste classification has to be done by the waste producer.
