Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls
The Personal Protective Equipment must be in accordance with EN standards:respirator EN 136, 140,
149; safety glasses EN 166; protective suit: EN 340, 463, 468, 943-1, 943-2; gloves EN 374, safety shoes EN-ISO 20345.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.
Keep working clothes separately.
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental exposure controls
Handle in accordance with local environmental regulations and good industrial practices.
Engineering measures
Use with local exhaust ventilation.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection : Full mask, Multi-range filter ABEK/P3
Remarks: In the case of dust or aerosol formation use respirator with an approved filter.
Hand protection : Glove material: Natural Latex Break through time: > 480 min Glove thickness: 0,6 mm Lapren®706
Remarks: Supplementary note: The specifications are based on information and tests from similar substances by analogy.
Due to varying conditions ( e.g.temperature or other strains) it must be considered that the usage of a chemical protective
glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374.
Set up a shower and washroom near the handling operation place, and indicate the place plainly.
Protective Equipment :Use the protective equipments (mask, glove, rubber apron, rubber boot)
Hygiene Measures :Do not take the substance by mouth. Wash the hands after handling.
Since actual conditions of practical use often deviate from standardised conditions according EN 374 the glove
manufacturer reccomends to use the chemical protective glove in practice not longer than 50% of the recomended permeation time.
Manufacturer´s directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types .
Eye protection : Goggles
Skin and body protection : Complete suit protecting against chemicals
