Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
· Respiratory protection:
If the WEL value is exceeded.
Filter P3
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer
exposure use self-contained respiratory protective device.
· Protection of hands:
Avoid direct contact with the chemical/ the product/ the preparation by organisational measures.
Use gloves of stable material (e.g. Nitrile) - if necessary tricoted to improve the wearability.
Protective gloves.
Check the condition of the gloves prior to each use.
The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the
Preventive skin protection by use of skin-protecting agents is recommended.
