Exposure controls / personal protection

General protective measures:
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Respiratory protection :
Use respiratory protection in case of insufficient exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure.
Full mask to standard DIN EN 136.
Filter A (organic gases and vapours) to standard DIN EN 141.
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 breakthrough time / gloves : 480 min
Minimum thickness / gloves 0,7 mm
For short-term exposure (splash protection):
Nitrile rubber gloves.
Minimum breakthrough time / gloves : 10 min
Minimum thickness / gloves 0,4 mm.
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 :
safety glasses
