Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters: The usual precautions for handling chemicals should be observed.

Personal protection
Respiratory: In case of dust formation use dust mask. Dust exposure limits have to be respected.
Hand: For permanent (>480 minutes), full contact use, 100% nitrile gloves conforming to EN 374, e.g. KCL Dermatril 740 are recommended.
If used under conditions other than given above it is recommended that a supplier of CE approved gloves is
contacted.
These recommendations are only applicable to the chemical as supplied by Akzo Nobel; if mixed with or
dissolved in other substances please contact a supplier of CE approved gloves (e.g. KCL International +49 66
59870, fax +49 6659 87155).
