Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Breathing protection if breathable aerosols/dust are formed. Self-contained breathing apparatus.
Hand protection:
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Body protection:
full protection suit with breathing-air supply (f.e. according to EN 943)
General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Remove contaminated clothing
immediately and dispose of safely. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.
