Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Personal protective equipment

Eye/face protection

Tightly fitting safety goggles. Faceshield (8-inch minimum). Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

Skin protection

Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices.

Wash and dry hands.

The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.

data source: KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, phone +49 (0)6659 87300, e-mail, test method: EN374

If used in solution, or mixed with other substances, and under conditions which differ from EN 374,

contact the supplier of the CE approved gloves. This recommendation is advisory only and must

be evaluated by an industrial hygienist and safety officer familiar with the specific situation of

anticipated use by our customers. It should not be construed as offering an approval for any

specific use scenario.

Body Protection

Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must be selected

according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Respiratory protection

Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator

with multi-purpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup

to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air

respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government

standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

Control of environmental exposure

Do not let product enter drains.
