Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls
General protective measures
Avoid contact with eyes and skin
Do not inhale dust

Hygiene measures
Observe the usual precautions when handling chemicals.

Respiratory protection :
Use respiratory protection in case of insufficient exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure Full mask to standard DIN EN 136 Particle filter P, to standard DIN EN 143 The use of filter apparatus presupposes that the environment atmosphere contains at least 17% oxygen by volume, and does not exceed the maximum gas concentration, usually 0.5% by volume. Relevant guidelines to be considered include EN 136/141/143/371/372 as well as other national regulations.


Hand protection :

For long-term exposure: Butyl rubber gloves. Minimum thickness (glove): not determined With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.

For short-term exposure (splash protection): Nitrile rubber gloves. Minimum thickness (glove): not determined

With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured. These types of protective gloves are offered by various manufacturers. Please note the manufacturers´ detailed statements, especially about the minimum thickness and the minimum breakthrough time. Consider also the particular working conditions under which the gloves are being used.

Eye protection :
Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face shield.)

Body protection :
protective clothing

Stability and reactivity

Thermal decomposition : approx. 240 °C (Heating rate : 10 K/min)
