Exposure controls / personal protection

* Engineering measures
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
* Personal protective equipment
- Respiratory protection:
In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment. For short-time or low exposures, use breathing apparatus with a filter.
Recommended Filter type: Half mask with a particle filter P3 (EN 143). For intensive or prolonged exposure, use a self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Hand protection:
Glove material: Wear suitable gloves. Protective gloves complying with EN 374.
The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other.
The exact break through time can be obtained from the pro-tective glove producer and this has to be observed. Protective gloves have to be replaced at the first sign of dete-rioration.
- Eye protection:
Eye protection (EN 166). Tightly fitting safety goggles
- Skin and body protection:
Chemical resistant protective clothing according to DIN EN 13034 (Type 6)
- Hygiene measures:
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe dust.Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the ap-plication area. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
