Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment:
· General protective and hygienic measures: Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
· Breathing equipment: Breathing protection recommended.
· Protection of hands: Protective gloves. The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the
preparation. Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/ the chemical mixture. Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.
Material of gloves: The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Penetration time of glove material: The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
· Eye protection: Tightly sealed safety glasses.
· Body protection: Protective work clothing.
