Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures: Maintain exposures below applicable exposure limits:
· Control parameters
CAS-Nr. Substance identification type Value Unit 1314-98-3 - Zinc sulfide (Fine dust)
MAK (A): 3mg/m3
ACGIH TLV:15mg/m3
OSHA/PEL: 15mg/m3

Personal protection equipment
Industrial hygiene measures: Keep in clean conditions. Avoid dust formation
Respiratory protection: A respirator must be used if the dust concentration is likely to exceed the Occupational exposure
limit. At higher concentrations wear particle filter DIN EN 143 - P2. or equivalent approved by NIOSH.
Hand protection: Prolongued exposure should be avoided by wearing suitable protective gloves and clothing:
In full contact:
Glove material: nitrile rubber
Layer thickness: 0.11 mm
Breakthrough time: > 480 Min
In splash contact:
Glove material: nitrile rubber
Layer thickness 0.11 mm
Breakthrough time: > 480 Min
Eye protection: The use of an approved dustproof goggles is recommended if the dust concentration is likely to
exceed the Occupational exposure limit
Skin protection: Zinc Sulfides are not irritant but as with all fine powders can absorb moisture and natural oils on
the surface of the skin during prolonged exposure. Prolongued exposure should be avoided by
wearing suitable protective gloves and clothing.
