Exposure controls
Engineering measures: Maintain adequate engineering controls and/or ventilation to keep hazardous ingredients below their statutory limits. Use an approved respirator whenever exposure limits are exceeded
Hygiene Measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice
Personal protective equipment
Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles. Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing problems.
Hand protection: Protective gloves, Neoprene gloves. The determined penetration times according to EN374 part III are not performed under practical conditions. Therefore a maximum wearing time, which corresponds to 50% of the penetration time, is recommended.
Skin and body protection: Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of dangerous substances, and to the specific work-place
Respiratory protection: In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Environmental Exposure Controls: No information available.
