· Protection of hands:
Protective gloves
Check the condition of the gloves prior to each use.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
After use of gloves apply skin-cleaning agents and skin cosmetics.
Preventive skin protection by use of skin-protecting agents is recommended.
Wear gloves for protection against mechanical hazards according to EN 388.
Avoid direct contact with the chemical/ the product/ the preparation by organizational measures.
· Material of gloves
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.
EN 388: Minimum requirements for efficiency level 1 for all groups.
Recommended thickness of the material: ≥ 0.35 mm
Butyl rubber, BR
Nitrile rubber, NBR
· Penetration time of glove material
EN 420: Minimum requirements for efficiency level 1 for all groups.
The exact break through time has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
For the mixture of chemicals mentioned below the penetration time has to be at least 6 minutes (Permeation according to EN 374 Part 3: Level 480).
